Aren`t these the prototypes Luke was talking about? They look smooth btw.  I could imagine they feel good playing with.

It reminds me of the chinese diabolos with the long sinusoidal axles to hubs.  Does look pretty sweet though.  Someone owns a mould and some raw teflon.  Or he lathed it from a cylinder.

No that are not the the prototypes Luke mentioned.

I had the idea, made a drawing, and a friend of mine works
on a CNC lathe, he made the hubs for me.
Unfourtenately he had no black material in this diameter or bigger.
Perhaps I will get soon two black hups.

I will take them to EJC 2005 in Ptuj.

Next week I will get some with black hubs, if not the worst comes to the worst. I think it should be possible that you could test them on the EJC in Ptuj. :)

The complete kit is:
two hubs out of POM in black colour,
two big washers out of POM in white colour,
two small washers out of aluminium,
two nuts out of aluminium,
and the axe also out of aluminium.
That´s all.

If you are interested in buying send me an email to
diabolo-kits@web.de
and we could clarify the details.

Looks nice JC! What height is the diabolo with those hubs? It looks taller than a normal henrys but shorter than the current long axle. Am I correct?

Pulling up an old thread...  I'm gonna become a Circus man soon when my order comes through, but looking at the Butterfingers catalogue, they have these new arrivals:

POM (Teflon) hubs for Circus Diabolos: - £3.95
Fitted in place of the standard metal hubs for incredibly smooth grinds

Tune-up Kits: - £11.95
The entire axle and hub assembly, including POM hubs, to revitalise tired Circus Diabolos.

Now does anyone have any ideas which hubs these are exactly, or whether it's just some random make?  And would I be correct in saying the Tune-Up kits would include a new axle, bolt, washers etc?

Just thinking of getting them, and as they're cheap (even cheaper with club discount  :wink: ) then it might be worth it.  Also Butterfingers now have the Henrys Carbon and Glass fibre sticks in white if anyone is interested.

Dont know what make they are, but the tune up kit includes teflon hubs, a new (thinner M4 bolt) with a carbon tube sleeve (to make the up the bolt diameter to the original size on the hubs / axel part), large plastic washers, small aluminium washers & new cap nuts.  They do not include an axel (you use the original axel piece).

They also come in normal width or extended width.  If its the normal width kit then you can just use the teflon hubs and keep the original bolt etc (which will reduce the weight a bit and feel much smoother in play over the aluminium hubs) or you can use the whole kit which reduces the weight much more (about 44g saving over standard circus).

If its the extended version it makes the diab hubs part about 10mm wider and also lighter (about 35g saving).  The orignal bolt will not fit this kit (as its not long enough) but if you still want the weight of the circus (just need the smoothness of the new hubs) you can easily make a new bolt for the original kit from a length of M6 threaded bar cut down to the right size and use the old washers & nuts etc

Hope this helps

i have the ultra light extended axle kits on my diabolos


i like the weight reduction a lot and they are great for 1D as well as 2D (still working on 3) as long as you already know 2D because they do tend to tilt and have to be corrected

you can fingergrind for a long time.. i can get 40 seconds without to much trouble as well as do stick grinds

I use carbon sticks for doing 1D because aluminum is a bit heavy for infinite suicides but i use the aluminums for 2D.

they seem to not gain as much spin in tricks that would usually speed the diabolos up but its not that bad

probably the worst part about them is that after using them and then using a regular Circus the regular one feels so heavy as well as looks funny since im so used to the extended width

overall I like them a lot and world recommend them to someone who likes Circus diabolos but wants better grinds, more room around the axle for string, as well as a huge reduction in weight

yeah well that was kinda long now its time to go practice
