i bought a stupid tool-thingy. I did hold both nuts and could get my hubs on at last. Finesses are easier to work with ::)

I disagree ;) Mister Babache FTW, they include tools! Oh, and by the way German is a proper noun and needs capitalization ;D. Of course you will find something wrong with this statement I'm sure.

He's talking about the added percentages.  If you add the finesse percentages and subtract the circus percentages then you'll get 0.1.

Oh right, forgot to include the wide axled ones ::)

I don't like the finesse too much.
I like the customization and weight, but I hate it for vertax :-\, so I went and got a different diabolo for doing vertax that I prefer over the finesse.

The one I got is like a fly, and it's got the little "Ryo Yabe style diabolo" molded in the cups, but it's called a 三鈴 (Three Diabolo), so perhaps it was a prototype or something.
I got it in Taiwan where I was hoping to buy a Fly, since a friend of Yabe's that taught me for a day recommended them over the finesse (which I do prefer;)), but I was short 100NT :(
