Whatever diabolo i bought the most recently. Pretty sure this will be true for everyone too.

Using 2 circus's with ultra light kits and i couldnt imagine using anything else now. Finesse seem so pants in comparison.. No idea why its just my current feeling.

I love my flies but feel like its almost a different prop. So many things you can do with one and not the other. Also thier lack of durability on concrete is a huge drawback for me because i like to be able to stop anywhere and have a quick session if time allows. (always have my props on me at all times)

For me, it's a close contest between a Jazz and Athena, but I use my Athena's more.

Although, I agree with Martin ( bought my second Athena the most recently)

I don't know if it's a part of taibolos, but Gong Quns are what I've been using.  I'll just see for myself why people adore Finesses so much. :D

I've never heard of an Athena. Is it good?
Aren't Gong Quns what loads of Taiwanese people use? like William.
Edit: Just looked it up on Nev's page, and yes Taibolo is the same as Gong Quns.

Maybe not so surprising, but it's interesting how much more of a spread there is in diabolo choice compared to a couple years ago.

I use them all the time, and I think they're brilliant. They work well with all of the tricks I have tried  ;D

I'm undecided. I am using finesse at the moment. I seem to flow so much better when I do, or maybe I'm just on a creative streak. I've been coming up with new stuff.
Still love my flys though.
Is Taibolo the gap between finesse and circii?

Sun is definitely the gap between Fly and Circus by the way.

I really don't get why the Finesse is doing so well. Let's face it, it's the crappiest diabolo ever.

Harsh, but I kind of agree. There's at least 6 diabolos I'd use before a Finesse (sun, fly, circus, yoho diabig, harlequin, taibolo).

You would really prefer a beach diabolo than a finesse?

Crazy.

With my lighter washers, the Taibolo is noticeably the lightest full sized diabolo on the market. Of course, this means it's not the most stable beast (leave that up to the lead filled default-washer-Sun :) ), but they are silky smooth, very responsive, fast to correct, and the only diabolos that don't hurt my wrists no matter how long I practice.

If they didn't murder my wrists, I'd be all over the fly-washer-Suns as my every day diabolo.

Lately I've been traveling with my ultra-light circuses so I can practice on pavement. I'm definitely also liking them, but my wrists do hurt after a while and they aren't as smooth or forgiving as my taibolos.
