I have had my diabolo in a bag for a day and when it came out the cups were deformed.  Does anyone know how to fix them? If it helps any it is a henry's circus with plastic hubs.

might help if you said what diabolos.

Usual answers are leave them until they sort themselves out.
The spin of using them sometimes is enough to sort them out.
Pour warm/hot water into the cup and let them stand for a while.

wait..your topic title says deformed hubs but you said that you had deformed cups. im going to assume you said deformed cups because that's more likely.

when i got my first G2 it was REALLY deformed (it was like a football...i can post a pic if it matters) and it wobbled like hell when i used it. after a while though, it spun itself back to normal. my yellow G2 came slightly deformed and after use, it's fine.

the lesson is..just use it. it will reshape itself.

My 3 circi are all warped, from stuffing them in my bag or between my legs all the time. But just a bit of use and the get into a reasonaly usable shape.

Really getting into that plural Circus thing aren't ya.  The hot (not boiling) water into the diabolo cup left to sit for a little while should mould it back out to shape.  Dry thoroughly to prevent rusting.  Or you could put it on a flat surface somewhere warm for a while and hope it regains it's memory.

i packed my diabolo's in a suitcase for two days, they ended up being a bit warped (they formed into ovals), but after i did diabolo for 10 minutes (mainly speeding them up really fast), they got back to normal.  how warped are your diabolo's? Is it enough to make them hard to practice with, or is it just annoying

thats so weird that you posted this.. cause i just moved to winston salem the other day and my finesse was in my bag and when i took it out to show my friend my new g2... it was all mis shapened,  but as everyone said a few wrapped orbits and everything is back to normal.
