Weird Chinese Diabolo and Juggling Stuff at the EJC
« on: June 21, 2007, 10:42:00 AM »
Hello everyone

Posting to announce the availability of some weird and wonderful Chinese
goodies at the EJC this year.

I am currently thinking of bringing *deep breath* :

Taichi Balls (a bit like russians) and Taichi Tennis
Throwable Fans (anyone at the Scottish 07 may have seen me with them)
Chinese style Diabolos
Chinese style Half Diabolos
Weird Diabolo sticks... they have a platform on the bottom of one stick
that you can spin the Half Diabolo on like a spinning top.

Also stumbled on a place that sells Powerisers really cheap :P

Any pre-orders greatly appreciated, might give me a way of gauging
interest....

I'll try and get some videos and photos up to back this up in the near
future.

Also - for anyone interested, I will be offering a Zhang style Taiji
workshop. :P

Love and kisses,

Oli

Sorry for the double post - hoping to get some real interest in this, to help pay for my flight from Beijing to Athens! Thanks again.

Alex!

No prices yet.

The axle on the single-sided diabolo looks to be the same as the one on my rubber version - see this thread. I'm quite happy with mine, seems to be pretty sturdy and plays OK, but I can't vouch for the all plastic version.

Thanks for the cross-post from rec.juggling - as you say - pics now up at www.aerialco.net/shop.php

I will attempt to get some videos up - bought a copy of one of their Dvds, but not got a way to get you all a sneak preview yet.

I will probably be looking at trying to sell every item I bring for a round 10 Euros, with possible negociation available for bulk buys :P

Powerisers I am going to have to think about. They are around £120 (pre-bargaining, pre-research into whether or not there are any other shops selling them :P) but also big and heavy and so might be a challenge to transport....

Cheers for your time,

Oli

I would like a Half diabolo and handsticks. Maybe fans too, but I don't really know how they are used

Cool - well i will be bringing a load of both :P I have pretty much found the source for the Chinese diabolos... spent an hour or two chatting prices in a small shack with two guys who were hammering the things together as we spoke :D

I will try and get some videos up of fun stuff with all the props over the next few weeks... the fans are great fun, just to have a bit of a play with, and once you learn to open them properly they make a cool noise!

I don´t suppose you sell over the internet? If you dont, I don´t suppose anyone could buy some extra stuff and I could pay you extra for the trouble?

^I know it´s a lot of supposing but I can´t go to the EJC and have been looking for half diabs for a long time now :'(.

Hah - turns out the guys at the source refuse to admit that I am not a gullible foreigner, and are therefore refusing to admit that they can sell me them cheaper in bulk than they are currently suggesting! I found their shack by buying one of their diabolos from another store - and i paid less for one at the second shop than they are offering me wholesale!! cheeky buggers!

Anyway, I should think I will be bringing around 100, for sale at and after the EJC. Emails at the above address :)

love and kisses,

oli
