fiberglass like energy sticks? i've broke around 4 sticks, it always snaps in 2 by the grip. i've broke a similar number of carbon sticks too, though i think they last slightly longer. its all personal preference :)

I think the energy sticks are a plastic, no? But yeah, they're incredibly flexy and prone to breakage too. Probably much much more so.

long and hard

 Ahaha.

But yes, different strokes for different folks, just like diabolos themselves. Which kind is really 'better' will never be solidly decided on.

MB Energy sticks are acrylic I think.  Or a clear styrene?  But my money is on acrylic.  Energy sticks break because they are just acrylic whereas the fibreglass sticks are a composite of fibreglass, resin and a plastic outer sleeve.  The sleeve is what keeps the stick from just snapping in two and fibreglass splinters everywhere.

A few new stick colours are now available new items


The gold is not strictly new, but is now an improved brighter colour.

Actually I didn't mean to do that - I didn't realise the shop was auto sending out emails until I got them as well - I stopped it after the first 2 items when I realised.  (thought it might annoy people)

Oh ok, would be something interesting to work on though. Maybe a monthly update ?

A monthly update would be a nice thing IMO, as long as it didn't require too much effort.

Wow, those look sweet. If the devil diaboloed, we know what sticks he would use!

Any idea if the diameter of those sticks matches the Henrys aluminums? Wondering if the red handles would be swapable onto the Henrys.

I'm all for a regular update email too, although I suppose it should be either an opt in list or have an easy unsubsribe option.

I really like the Sundia sticks (got the silver ones myself) and I absolutely prefer them over Henry's carbons.
The red ones look so cool. As do the blue ones.

Moffett not sure what it is exactly, but they're pretty bendy. They look really nice but they just bend far to much! (for my liking)

Yeah the LED sticks do bend a fair bit - not quite as bendy as MB Energy but not far off.  I guess that's the compromise in keeping the weight down to 90g (same weight as MB Extreme silicone & Henry's Alu).

How do people find MB extremes compare to Henry's Aluminiums? I've always used Henry's and I love them, except for the string wear/cutting at the tips, I was wondering if extremes are any better for that and how they compare versus Henry's generally.

Can anyone shed any light?

Has anyone tried the "deluxe acrylic handsticks" from jugglingstore?
here's the link: http://www.jugglingstore.com/store/detail.aspx?ID=734
The Stringing system sounds like energies/extremes with the removable end.
