Renegade Juggling is a great store, they have a lot of diabolos and handsticks. They even have Play, which you would probably like since you don't like the foam cushion (it has silicone grip). They're located in Santa Cruz California... actually I go in store sometimes hahaha.

Anyway here's a link for their diabolos

And specifically for handsticks

Also shameless self advertising... if you want LED diabolo sticks I manufacture them based out of the USA as well

Hey Brian, we might have talked on facebook, or at least I have been in contact with Jim and a few of the other organizers. I'm going to try making it out this year (was bummed to have missed last years but had an incident the week before).

Awesome, I saw them post on facebook, but couldn't read because it was in another language. Thanks for posting with english translation, although like Donald said, a bit hard to read behind the logos xP

2. What or who got you started? It was just one day in 7th grade, I was forever changed.

Sounds like Jester Games visited your middle school. I just started teaching with this program too. If you're in the SF Bay Area let me know!

Hey everyone I just wanted to let you all know I'm running a holiday sale until the end of the year. 10% off (20% if social media posts get enough likes and shares). Feel free to grab a set while the discounted pricing is available :)

moderators... I totally just noticed the Vendors section of this forum. Let me know how I can help donate to the server costs, and we can move this to the appropriate place if that's still a thing happening :)

I'm on instagram too as @dracothejuggler. I probably have quite a number of you already, but feel free to add me, I always try and stay updated and add my followers back, especially diaboloists! :)

Very interesting, good job with the research and card making!

I almost signed up with DracoTheJuggler or DracoDiabolo, but thought it was too similar to DracoDragon. I decided to go with TheSpinForce because it is my juggling company name :)

1. How many years have you diaboloed for?
Since 2003, so 14 years.

2. What or who got you started?
Matt Hall used to teach Japanese classes at my high school. He also advised the Silver Creek Juggling Club. I learned diabolo under him.

3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general?
The possibilities are so infinite. I'm still learning new tricks. It's also lead me to travel and make friends.

4. How many hours a day do you diabolo on average?
Not as much as I used to. Maybe a few hours a week if lucky.

5. Do you ever perform with the diabolo?
All the time, and I love it. Usually at juggling festivals, but I've also been performing at theme parks the past few years.

6. Do you juggle other props?
Balls, clubs, cigar boxes, yoyo, kendama, contact juggling, rope dart... etc

7. What are your favourite diabolos, sticks, and string?
I have been a long time fan of Henrys Circus, Henry's Aluminum sticks and Henrys string. I recently switched to using Sundia Evo but still use the sticks and string.

8. Do you like working with 1, 2, or 3 diabolos the best?
I work with 1, 2, and 3. I like them all equally.

9. What is your favourite diabolo trick that you can do?
I'm not sure... I really like continuous mini-gens as well as helicopter.

10. What is the most amazing diabolo trick you've ever seen done?
Probably 5d low self started.

11. What tricks are driving you nuts right now (what are you working on)?
3 diabolo minicolumns, 4 diabolos low, integral suicide stuff.

12. What other diaboloists have inspired you?
Too many to name. Matt Hall for starters. Sharpe Brothers, Arjan, Martijn, Sean, Tony Frebourg, Ryo Yabe, Arata, Diabology, Nico and Planet Diabolo, lots of old time forum members... the list goes on.

Gear / Diaglo LED Diabolo Sticks by The Spin Force
« on: June 25, 2017, 06:25:21 AM »
Greetings fellow diaboloists!

My name is Chris Garcia and I'm a diaboloist located in San Jose, California. I used to post a lot on these forums in mid-2000s under the username "DracoDragon" (part of Silver Creek Jugglers, Matt Hall's student, etc). I've been working diligently over the past two years on creating my own version of LED diabolo sticks, which I have now finally decided to sell on the market. I have two models of the sticks, heavier ones for players that like to use aluminum sticks, and lighter ones for those who like a light-weight stick. The sticks utilize LEDs common in LED juggling balls and are made with a durable material. Below is more information and photos as well as a website link.

The website for the sticks is

Here's a video of the sticks in action!

Diaglo Standard

Weight: ~50grams  Length: ~30 centimeters (multiple options)

Diaglo Lightweight

Weight: ~35 grams  Length: ~25 centimeters

Light Kits

Light kits come in multiple solid colors as well as color changing capsules.

The sticks were designed to allow for easy string changing and require less string than if it was threaded through the whole stick. The sticks are made of tough Polycarbonate plastic, the same material used to make bullet-proof windows.

The colors are ultra bright, and the batteries long lasting. More info about the capsules can be found at

On a side note, I will be traveling to Mexico, IJA, and EJC this year and will have sets on me for sale.

Best Wishes,
Chris Garcia (Draco Diabolo)
