You'd have to modify the circus cups to accept the axles. Its not really worth it in my opinion. If you want heavier finesses you could always buy weight kits.

The only advantage circus cups have over finesse cups is the fact that circus cups bounce off the floor better.

That's not quite true, but only because you put a "only" in there :-)
I can see 2 other advantages:
1) the surface is more slipery on the Circus. Meaning that when 2 diabolos get in contact with each other by accident, they are less likely to crash immediately.
2) The Circus are easier to correct when doing high patterns. You need a lot more accuracy to correct Finesse diabolo properly (can be done though).

This does not mean Circus are better that Finesse. The Finesse have other advantages.

JiBe (thought I was done with the Circus vs Finesse stuff, but work's even more boring).

LOL,

But it is true, finesses are very much harder to control in the air.
I find the circus a better over-all diabolo... only with the teflon hubs offcourse ;)

Because their weight and lower height possibly... and the material is a bit more sticky, so taps with the sticks are harder to do. Also the normal standard hubs are more thight together, so if things go wrong, there isn`t much space to control it again.

But JiBe or Priam can tell much more about this probably.
