Gear / Re: Taibolo V2 or Sundia Sun Heavy or light
« on: August 26, 2011, 03:03:48 AM »
 I have decided on the Sundia Suns and  The best deal I could find is at

The only problem is that it says that it is 260 grams, and I hear the heavy ones are actually 275 grams. Does anyone know if this is just a typo or a different version of the sundia sun?

Thank you.

Ok that helps a lot. I have been swinging the diabolo kind of slow so far.

Ok. Ive been doing that and the diabolo goes higher, but now my stick is taking to long to wrap around the diabolo again. Am I still not throwing the diabolo high enough? or is it something else?

Ok, so after about a half an hour of more practice, I can complete a tomicide. The only problem is I always catch the second stick around my wrist, but it still looks cool. My problem with a minigenocide is that the diabolo doesn't go up when i let go of the stick. Instead it goes a little to the side and doesnt rise in there at all. DO you happen to know what im doing wrong? Thanks

Are heavy suns best for learning 2d also? or would taibolo v2s be better

Thanks a lot for showing me that video! Ive already learned almost every step of the tomicide.  Know any good genocide tutorials?

Im looking through the forum and only see a post for the the V1s vs suns, but I am wondering if the v2s are any better. Your thoughts?

I have actually tried genocides and tomicides but have never figured out, even after watching countless tutorials. You wouldnt happen to know any good simple tutorials on either of those tricks? Thanks for the feedback!

Is there a reason why fixed is better or why bearings are better for 2d/3d?

Which do you think is better for 2d? Bearing or fixed axle? I'm gonna get Taibolos Super Diabolos for 2d, but I'm not sure if I should get the bearing ones or the fixed axle.

Well, I've decided to make a video of my progress after about 3 months. These are pretty much all the tricks I know. I'll gladly take suggestions and probably am missing many basics of the diabolo because I've learned only off of youtube and I also kind of messed up my whip catch but am much more comfortable with it now. I don't know much about making combos or stuff like that if someone wants to make suggestions and help me with that. It's my first video of me and I tried hard to make it, but I didn't put any cool effects because I don't have a good video editing system or anything.

One other question is: Does anyone know the name of the trick at the start?

Juggling Routine.

Ok thanks for everything and hopefully this will be my last question: Should I get the 2 Super Taibolos with bearings or without? I like the Super Taibolos better just because I think the cups on the glaries will be too soft, and might lose shape after a year or two. Has that happened to your glaries and how long have you had yours?

Is there any difference between the glary diabolo and taibolo besides weight? And which do you think would be better for performing.
Thank you :)

oh, wait one more thing. I see in the pictures that the axle is kind of short. Will this affect my stick grinds at all? An can you finger grind with it? And what's the best bearing diabolo for 2d juggling under $50? How is  the Taibolo V2 with a bearing?

Thanks for the feedback :-D . I actually learned with fixed axle and transfered to bearing like you said, Sean, and the main reason I prefer bearing is because my fixed axle was generic and it's longest spin time was maybe 10 seconds. I have no other experience with a fixed axle.

 I need to be able to go from trick to trick to trick without taking time in between to speed it up. I've also heard that it's harder to wrap a fixed axle but I don;t know if that's true. I did research on fixed diabolos and I'm not sure if I should get the finesse g3 or g4, taibolo v1/v2, or the sundia sun. I'd like as much spin time as possible, and something good for learning 2 diabolos. I don't think weight matters too much as long as it's not dragging my arms down. Thanks

I'm planning on getting new diabolos for juggling 2 and 3 diabolos and wonder whats the best kind. Right now I'm leaning towards getting 3  sundia fly long bearing diabolos. but I don't know how good that is for 2-3 diabolos. Right now I have a generic diabolo and a Revolution diabolo with a bearing. I'm wondering if bigger or smaller diabolos are better for juggling 2. I don't want a plastic diabolo but a hybrid or rubber one is great and I prefer a bearing. The reason I want the Fly is because I am just starting performing and thats the only large bearing diabolo I could find in my budget. I;ve heard good things about the Finesse but I need something that spins for a looong time and I can't afford buying the evolution kit for the finesse. Please help me out! Thanks.
