Hello forum

This is my first post & I was hoping someone could tell me what type of diabolo I own? (was hoping to post a picture but don't know how to get it off my computer & onto the forum).

I have 2 diabs of the same make both about 10+ years old - vital statistics are:

size 130mm diameter
weight 300 grams
height 150mm

Both have rubber cups.

Axles are aluminium with black plastic hubs (with large steel plate washers and hex bolt to hold them in within cup)

One is solid purple (quite dark) & the other is purple / white pattern (a bit like a radiant pattern but not quite).

Got them in my unicycle / snakeboard days (probably from mushy pea when it was near piccadilly records) and never even got past the basic 1d stuff of throwing & catching (RA orbis was about as advanced as I got).  That was 10+ years ago but I went camping 2 weeks ago, met a fellow diab player & got hooked.  Got the diabology DVD and am now doing stuff I never dream't of before (pulled off consistent genocides both ways yesterday).

Was thinking of having a go at two, but here is the prob.  Both my diabs looked fine when I dug them out of storage 2 weeks ago.  Since then however, one has developed a rather fatal looking split right through the cup around a full half of the diameter (near the hub).  Tried to glue and was ok for a while but then split again (and was a bit off balance).

As they are simelar in size weight to a circus - could I get away with buying just one circus (to go with my existing unknown make diab) or should I bite the bullet and get two new ones?

Sorry for the essay - just v pleased to be progressing and eager for more.

Any advice would be more than welcome.
