what kind of sticks?
« on: August 10, 2009, 02:35:01 PM »
hi everyone,

im daniel from the netherlands.

im new on this forum and new with the diabolo.
i was on a summer camp and they had diabolo's there so tryed a few times and within a week i was able 2 pull of some simpel tricks and really enjoyed doing it. so when i came back the first thing i did was buying a diabolo. it was a small one with wooden sticks. after 2 weeks checking out youtube i find that every 1 has bigger diabolo's. so i went back 2 the store asking are bigger diabolo's better? he told me it has more weight spins longer and faster etc. so a few day later knowing that im addicted to diabolo i bought my second diabolo with lighter sticks. i was really happing at first coz everything was easyer and suicides went faster but 3 days later i broke my string. i did at least a week with my previous strings. so is this because i buyed other sticks? or coz of the heavyer diabolo?
ive got Henry's sticks Fiber 35 cm.
how many days u guys string hold and if it are the sticks wich would i buy then.

thnx for reading.

It's unlikely it's the heavier diabolo. People use up to at least 4 heavy diabolos on the string at once without any problems.

Most likely the ends of your sticks are rough. That would be because you have dropped them on pavement. Some threads to look at:
