Thank you! Loving to hear info about the gear. Hardly anyone says anything about the diabolos anymore. People just ask name and price and that is it.

I have been in Flerbollar couple of times and I'm actually always genuinely surprised of how much things they have. Especially during last visit the wooden Tom Kuhn yo-yo's were totally the thing (from USA, small manufacturer who pretty much makes them by hand).

I'm not sure if I mentioned it last time we talked but I have a small online store for diabolos and yo-yo's that i keep. I have basically one very small storage room at my place that's full of stuff. It's basically guerrilla warfare business. I don't have capacity or money to really compete with the big companies. So I basically import stuff that they don't have or know to where to get. With yo-yo's this is easy since there are lot of different companies and getting contacts is easy if you play yourself. The same goes for diabolos now. The whole shop thing started after carrying around 20 Sundia Fly's to Finland from EJC Karlsruhe. Got them cheap the last day and nobody had bearing diabolos here back then. Basically sold those out in two weeks and contacted Nev to get more.

Naoya was our guest for FDC so he brought out some MyDiabolos and Epics. And just before the event he was able to hook up a sponsor contact for the event. We printed out logos and tried to get Epic out as much as we could during the contest. And I'm sure the logo will pop up in all the videos we edit later as well... After the event we actually got something like 50 Epics to give away for winners of contest etc.  I basically got the MyDiabolo's as a gift from Naoya and Epics as prices from the contests (sport contest and diabolo mod contest).  :-D

For me, it says that Taibolo is the only one leading, which other Taiwanese brand were you referring to?

I think he is considering Sundia if you combine the votes for all their products.

The tuning kit TK2 for Circus is missing. It's made by Akrobat (you can buy it here: http://www.akrobat.net/Diabolos/Zubehoer-66/Akrobat-Tuning-Kit-TK2.html) and in my opinion it's one of the best diabolos out there. I'm using them for 3 years now and I still love them.
Alternatively I choose the Giant kit from Henrys. It comes close enough.
