After a little searching around the interweb I found these

UFO (model name) glow in the dark diabolo's from Taiwan

mod edit: please don't quote images...

Anyone got any experience of these??  If so, are they any good??

From the black / white hubs I'm guessing they have a bearing axel (ala spinabolo style)


yup, those are the types i used. Fei-Ling or something like that, except i have green and yellow instead of white.

my experiences with them is that the axle is small, so doing tricks that pull the diabolo out wide will most likely tilt it. horizontal adjusting is a pain too. i also find them harder to use when doing 2d, but i guess thats true w/ all bearings diabolos. it has very good balance as far as i can tell, and not too light/heavy.

(note that my review is somewhat biased since i've only used this brand and the original chinese yoyo.)

where did you find those pictures?

Errr, i don't know if i am right, but that diabolo looks exactly the same as a spinabolo. Even down to the nuts on the inside of the cups...

The only difference i can see is the sticker!

Can anyone else see this?
Not sure how many times my diabolos have been in the pond

Yeah, they look very similar, it's just that beautiful white color. As far as I know, spinabolos are only available in red and blue now (they stopped producing yellow and black?). Help me out here... somebody.

They look kinda sharp  :?

People have some great eyes on this forum to see such little distictions (or lack thereof).  Does look similar except for a very glossy white.

Not an outdoor diabolo...

Yeah, just as sharp as the Spinabolo I reckon.

Yeah, I figured that out... the hard way. They're pretty messed up, one looks really abused, thanks to my excalibur genocide tutorial. That damn concrete!
