Heh!

I love the idea!
I took the wide axel finesse because i like doing 1 diabolo tricks and my favorites are grinds.

would be good to add the fly diabolo to the list, maybe thats what the 'other' diabolos are?
martijn is right, the poll is so old (9th march 2005). new one?

Yeah I don't think it would be a bad idea to make a new thread.. I probably voted for Henry's beach back then ::)

I would definitely change my vote from finesse to fly and I also think it would be a good idea to reset/restart the poll

Yeah, good idea. Perhaps it's best to wait a little longer? because only a small group of people have tried the Fly's.

But yeah, good plan :)

Why isn't there a remove vote button like on the fly diabolo pole, this would allow people to change their minds while still showing the general preferences of the diabolo community

hmm, yeah the remove vote thing is nice(not to say neccecary) for polls like that! i think with this option availible its about time to reset the whole thing and add all kinds of diabolos that are missing like flys(fixed and bearingy) and the continentals... also all the different tuning kits that are availible for circus(and others?)like the ultra leicht kit from JC and the TK2 should be in the poll imo!

oh, and the same thing for handsticks would be great ;D!

I agree, I don't know why that wasn't an option when this poll was created. However, I'd suggest starting a new thread with the new poll and the "edit vote" option. And I think it's a great idea to do the same for sticks and string!

Here are the options I think are appropriate. Please tell me if I forgot something important!

Henry's Circus
MB Finesse
MB Harlequin
Renegade
Yoho / Diabig
Fly
Tiabolo (Grand Continental)
Spintastics Spinabolo
4 inch diabolo (Jazz)
Other

Since the use of different generations, wide axles, weight kits or fixed vs. bearing would make this poll very big... I don't think we should add all the different options, but just the diabolo. The different kits are just a way of customizing your diabs anyway :)

Henry's alu
Henry's carbon/fibre
MB Extreme
MB Energy
Diamond sticks
Selfmade
Other

Henry's white
Henry's yellow
Henry's orange
Henry's green
MB white
MB yellow
MB pink
Other

Sounds good. I will set that up. There isn't an option to delete or change your vote because this was set up back when we were on the phpBB forum and no such options existed!

oh, i would add at least the option "Circus modded" to the poll.

because in fact there are worlds between a stock and a modded circus!!!

Yeah I know... just read the option 'Circus' as: "Circus with either original metal hubs or replacement teflon hubs, curved hubs or wide axle" :P

And yeah, that makes sense Sean, SMF is so much better!

My finesse's are o.k., but i just couldnt resist getting circi since they feel like 1000× nicer than Finesse's :-\  :-\
