Thanks.  The reason I asked is that I don't like the plastic that yoho middles are made of.   Maybe just because it seems too soft.  It means they react to stick contact badly, and I think it makes the string tangle too much.  Pretty much the same reasons that made so many people go for replacement Henrys axle kits.  The lower quality of yoho stuff doesn't help either.  The engineering of Henrys, Babache, Sundia, etc is much better, and it seems that the main problem is the middles.

Anyway, I'm taking your thread OT here, I'm just interested in possibilities!

Awesome again JC. I feel eager to try out those kits, after all i'm your big fan.
Been using your leight kits for 3 years now. For me they are the greatest improvement
for my diabolos. So i think i owe you much. Finesses have never been my cup of
tea but i look forward on trying those out.

Are you taking some of them with you to Karlsruhe this summer? I think i could buy
few of them to take back for Finnish jugging conventions. Probably Samuli will do
the same. ;)

Those look gorgeous! Strange to see white hubs on a finesse... I like it.

I'd be curious to see some closer photographs. It's intriguing how you've shaped the hubs where they join the cups.

they dont look as stylish in white, plus i dont like the way they suddenly go concave, if that were slightly smoother at the edge it would look even better  :P

@marco
Thanks for your comment, and surely we will meet on the EJC in Karlsruhe

@Sean, today I learned two new words gorgeous and intriguing...
I will make in the next days a closer photo and will also add photos from the narrow white and a black (with a white ring) version of the Ultra Leicht Kits.

@JCB3000, that was also my first thought, but it was not possible.
Hub diameters of the Circus and of the Finesse are different.
The easiest way was to place the slightly modified hub of a Circus Ultra Leicht Kit into a ring that fits in the Finesse. So I decided to do what Sean mentioned, I elongated the shape of the cup...

The photo is not the best, it is from the black axle version,
I will replace it soon, but you could see more details

I bet a white finesse with white hubs and black rings would look pretty nice too. Or just plain white  ::).

So the hub is slightly modified hub of a Circus Ultra Leicht Kit? How is it modified? It would be great if a original hub for henrys could be mounted to finesse with that little ring part. But i guess that is not the case?

In the moment this is not possible...I have to rework each hub.
If I order the next hubs in the future (this will take a while) I try to go this way.

reckon you could do that (the ring to mount the circus concave hubs on a finesse) to a finesse with fly bearings?  ;D

i also think the work on the finesse is quite impressive

well ive had a go on these, and i can honestly say that they are great!

i have just (kinda) converted to a nice heavy circus for a while, but really these are so much nicer im going to have to get some of the black ones. would say that they do play better with the 6g weight kits, but that is just personal prefernce.

I'm not entirely sure, but i would guess that it'd be slightly harder because of the reduced hub area for the string to rub on

I just received my two finesses today.....to satisfy background curiosities, I use sundia suns (with plastic washers and aluminium center piece), flys, and taibolos most of the time.

These are very well balanced and nicely weighted diabolos in the end.  Each diabolo is very stable and easy to do all the 1D tricks with the possible exception being excalibur (which admittedly I'm still learning, but I couldn't do anything with these).  The transition from the hub to the axel is completely smooth and takes double wraps with ease.  For 2D, there is no issues with low speed turn as with the Evo1 (wide axle) kit.  If you like a finesse with a wide axle, then order JC's kit and make your diabolos really nice. 

I have a performance with my high school's diabolo club tomorrow in front of 2700 people and will be using JC's finesses.  enough said.
