What Diabolo Langerz is using in CoNtInGeNcY?
« on: April 16, 2013, 04:19:26 PM »
Hello everyone!

I was out of the scene for like 2 years and now I'm back. However I sold my diabolos after quitting, and now thinking of getting new one.

Now I'm really into that Langerz's stuff and have yo-yoed in the past too. Langerz got here just what I'm aiming for. Now I wondering what Diabolo I should buy for practicing something like he are doing in that video?

If there are no other recommendations, I thought I would maybe just copycat him here and buy the same diabolo that he has, to be sure that I have decent diabolo and thats not limiting me in the near future. So does anybody know what diabolo he is using there? I'd certainly like to hear other recommendations for that style too, if somebody has some ideas. (:

Thank you in advance, Ezkuu

I think it certainly is a size smaller than normal Circus or Finesse or Taibolo or Suns... With a bearing.

Spinablo modded with Fly-bearing would be my guess.

Oh lol. :D Well, some problems in sight with that. They don't sell spinabolos here in Finland (according my google results), I never modded bolo and I thought I would spend something like 60e at max.

I think I'm going to contact local hobbyist and ask for advice with this.

Thanks for your time and fast answers everybody!

Yes its a combination of Sundia black bearing kit with the old spinabolo cups - i have the axle parts but finding the cups will be your problem

I think the question is already quite well answered here. :)

Oh well...figured you'd be the best guy to answer anyway. I've gotten a couple of shells since 2011 for the purpose alas a bit scared to start carving into them so still using the old wobbly one. ::)

Yeah carving is so difficult. Mine is shaking a lot as well. It took more than two hours to carve it by hand and it still feels like using a tiny lawn mower. :D I'm afraid of trying to fix it since it might cause even more wobbling...

I fixed mine a bit with paint after having taken too much off. Put on some paint, let it dry, put on another layer then remove excess to fit the bearing better. Not perfect (keeping the halves too tight and the bearing won't rotate, too loose and it wobbles out of control) but fixed some of the edges that were uneven.

Not knowing that I apparently should've carved (your was way smoother) did mine with a dremel so...yeah ::)

I used dremel to make mine and it is really good, even better than Mr. LZ's orginal. ;)

For the future and even in general I bet you all should keep your eyes on http://mightaswellcommit.com/
