MOD IT.

every one of the 20 or so FHZ's i own (made by duncan) are modded apart from a few collectables i keep stock! NONE are tug responsive.

take take take.. now you guys want actual pictures of the product? bah! You're just supposed to blindly buy it based on an image taken on an iphone and a breif description :)

I'll see what I can do about getting more images out there, but that's not my part of it :)

Quick question: How loud are the prototype bearings? I've heard some old Spinabolos that sounded like an actual rachet. Just curious.

Well production Sundia Fly bearings when properly lubricated and tightened it sounds pleasant just a light hum of sorts so I would assume kyle would use a clutch bearing of similar or greater quality

Cleaned bearing, one duncan sticker worn out, one not does the job. It's tug responsive but I can do pretty much every thing I know on it. Maybe because I'm insanely smooth but whatever.

Diabolos aren't responsive you silly, do you see people putting friction stickers on their finesses? Do you assume that Duncan, being a manufacturer of yo-yos, will do that to diabolos so they roll up the string? *Nods head in agreement* Really good idea!

P.S. Sorry for being so critical but it really annoys me when people make cross comparisons between diabolo and yo-yo, and vice-versa, especially since the two are so radically different in terms of fundamental concepts. Temple Out

if it's quiet, I'll buy it. the Spinabolo in question was my second diabolo and it turned me off of bearings; with the option, who can refuse?

No bearing is completely silent.. no one-way bearing anyway.. but the ones thus far have been MUCH better than the spinabolo ridiculousness.. more in line with the sundias.

Found a cool video of on of those cool "thingys" that stick out I would want to see on a diabolo:

If you could fit one of those on stock or as an accessory it would probably be very fun to play around with.

That's like saying using stem cells is cheating on curing stuff (no offense intended to anyone). Might as well try and experiment before we rule it out as junk.

oh, come on simon! g5+!!!!

 I actually began work on a stack kit for the g3 before i realised that langerz had allready made some. As long as its ok with him, once my lathe gets here ill be pumping them out, with top tips (that video) and something like inverted top tips.. imagin that. get into a decent vartax, and just balance the diabolo on the end of your stick sideways, so it will stay there for minutes, still spinning!!! get me?

Those sound awsome Kiz. But come on, i did think the anno look different but i couldn't see the inside of cup of the yoyo(right word?) but fair play. Whats the difference anyway? IF your commin to src bring a g3 and your proto-type if you have one.
