I'm pretty sure this is a waste of a topic and I may be drunk but I saw chiok a couple of times tonight so i'm all good but i don't think i've ever come across anyone who's been upset by the finesse.

Just noticed how much gear choice has changed..
I remember back when I was a "n00b" on the forum and the only thing people used (to an extent) were finesse or circus. And that was for all styles of play. Now there are so many more diabolo choices - More people using yohos, flys, sun, taibolos, spinabolos and other hyrib type things with bearings or hubstacks (and still finesse and circus). Although I haven't seen many using circus in videos recently. And people are using different diabolos for different tricks like yoyoers do for 1A, 2A etc I wonder if it'll go that way? eg.
One Diabolo - Sundia Sun
                                 Vertax - Sundia Fly [i no its cheating, but its so much easier  :P]
                                 Two Diabolo - Sundia Suns
                                 Three Diabolo - G3 Finesse
Don't take it the wrong way, I'm not frowning upon it. Just thought it could be something for you to mull over.

I did and it makes sense, the amount of gear combinations is massive (although I only have 3 diabolos in usable condition)
1D Sticks: MB Xtremes Foam Grip, Henrys Carbon Short or Sundia Carbon Short.
1D Diabolos: Finesse, Fly Bearing, Fly with Finesse Wide Axle, Sly (thank you langerz), Sly with Finesse Wide Axle, Finesse Wide Axle, Finesse with Harlequin medium Axle.
1D String: MB Yellow, MB Pink, Very thick string from a hardware shop (great for slack, I can whip it round my head no problem)

2D Sticks: Sundia Carbon Short, MB Xtremes Foam Grip.
2D Diabolos: Finesse.
2D String: Broken in Henrys (any colour normally orange or green)

Vertax: Any sticks, any string, Fly or Sly
Loop: Any String (preferably MB), Sly

I checked the "I'm New" section, and there wasn't any topic on the first page about it, although I didn't look through all seven or use the search.  And I think if we've updated our tastes since we were new, then we should be able to talk about them in the General diabolo discussion forum. 

So:

Diabolo (normal, multiple, and Vertax under 5 minutes) Finesse G2/3
Diabolo (playing around/ Vertax over 5 minutes) Sundia Fly
Sticks: Henry's Carbon fiber short black
String: Henry's Yellow.  There's just something about it I like.

Got to be the Circus with JC Ultra Leicht Kits for everything.

Henrys Carbon or Fibreglass Sticks, just depends which has the better string on at the time.  That'll be Henrys yellow string at the mo.

Based on what i've used over the years my current favourite combo is
Henry's Long Fibreglass and Henry's Circus Diabolo.

I did have a spinabolo which was great for practicing until the axle system broke, diabolo is intact, it just doesn't do the one way bearing thing anymore.

I use henry's alu sticks for my fire diabolo, but i don't like them for normal diabolo since they sever string so quickly when doing chinese whip to speed up.
