sundia shining triple bearing 2 types???
« on: November 25, 2012, 08:24:21 PM »
hello there

had a question about the sundia shining. first i live in Belgium and i wanted to order a sundia shining now at the site i looked (diabolo-planet.nl) there are 2 kinds of sundia the first one is the regular one  http://www.dube.com/diabolo/images/DiaboloShining_Red.jpg
and the second one is made out of marble http://www.diabolo-planet.nl/media/catalog/product/cache/4/image/312x/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/s/u/sundia_marmer_paars_1.png

 (marmer moesten er nederlandse lezers zijn) and i cant figure out where the difference is.

both have the same weight and stuff. so if you know which one i would buy please answer

Okay I would choose the one you can see through. For my experience it's more durable. So that with 1x or 3x bearing would be my suggestion.

If you are more interested on this thing here are some thoughts on Sundias.
There are many options. For axle sundia has quite a lot of options such as:
1x bearing wide
1x bearing aluminium wide (black, weights less)
1x bearing axle narrow
3x bearing wide
3x bearing aluminium wide  (black, weights less)
Fixed axle
Several one cup versions.

Might be more than that but those are that pop to my mind at first. Anyway, in my opinion 1x bearings are all right. So you can get the normal wide and it will be almost as good as triple. Just little more noise.

So for the cups now. I've seen several different cups attached to Sundia axle sets. There are basically two different versions. Cups can be thicker cups or thinner models. Also the material might be translucent or fixed color. Also fixed color has the marble option of more colors. The fly cup material seems to break easier at least in cold conditions or on hard surfaces like tarmac or concrete. The translucent material seems to last longer. I'm guessing the marble is more like fly material since I've seen couple of those shattered. I have had quite a lot of versions. Shining with translucent cups, Fly, Nimble (like fly but thinner material) and also thinner cup version of the marble. So far I have preferred the transparent one.

Hi!

The red diabolo is a triple bearing.
The other one looks like a fly (due to cups), but you can buy triples with the non-transparent (and also thicker) cups.
I'm sure they're both triples.

Hope that helps!  :-D

Yup^ But after around 2-3 (or 4) years they cups may shatter from high throws (this happened to me), but that is only if you use them ALOT.
Just don't worry about it breaking at the moment :)

Hope that helps!  :-D

ok i ordered my sundia shining about a month ago and now they said it will take a while before they have it back.
So i ordered the marble ones but apart from breaking easier there is no difference with the shining ones?  :)

There is no difference other than the cup design  ;)
