Spending Spree
« on: December 05, 2007, 09:40:42 PM »
Im spending 100$ and im not sure what diabolo stuff to get.
I already have 3 finesses, so don't suggest them.
Im thinking about getting one of langerz revolution kit's , but i'd want one of nev's extended axles for it.
Im fond of fly's and i only have 2, so im thinking about that.
And i've never tried suns...
So what do you think?

Put ~$20 towards a Diabolo.ca shirt

Donate the rest to the forum to help keep the diabolo server afloat another year. :)
(yes, except for donations it comes out of my own pocket)

Easy!

Quick to respond there Sean :).

Maybe you could think of other circus skills you're interested in?
Or.. maybe if you have money then maybe, just maybe, you don't need to spend it all at once on diabolos when you already have 3 perfectly good ones.

(Want's a fly or two and a langerz kit too ;))

I wouldn't be so quick to ignore that request by Sean. The server ain't exactly cheap.

Suns are a heavier diab, so if you don't like that, don't bother with them. Why not just grab another fly?

I say get some string, and maybe another fly, then donate the rest to D.ca!

Spare set of sticks (if you only have one pair), plenty of string (you have enough diabs) and .ca server contribution.

Well...As much AS I'D LOVE to donate my money to the server, I'll have to pass cause my job doesn't start up again till the spring.
I think i'll get some extra fly axles, a revolution kit, and an extended axle, and is diabology worth getting?
I'd definitely donate if i made money more regularly.

Lol, Diabology is definately worth getting.

Just because it's a few years old, Doesn't make it crap.

A crap load of tricks + Stuff in freestyle is still awesome

SPINABOLOS! That's funny.
Because i've gotten two spinabolos in past months and they both broke in several weeks.

spinabs are defiant, they only break when they dont respect you, you must understand the beast to be able to tame it.

Don't get diabology — just watch the vids on www.artofdiabolo.com.

yeah maybe, but why bother when you can just get flys???

i would get some gong qun taibolos, because i think that they are a good all round diabolo, they are quite expensive though...

just remember just because you have the money it doesn't mean you have to spend it!

I know.
I've figured I'm just going to get a revo kit, And maybe some extra fly axles, the rest i'm saving.
Spinabolo's - Beast's with horrid bearings.

But don't worry Sean, i'll ask for a D'ca t-shirt for christmas  :P

well because flys are bigger and heaver than a spinab, even when they have the light cups and light Teflon coated Axel!
over all i would say that flys are great for 2d and (well tamed) spinabs are for 1d

A small donation to the server fund wouldn't be too much, would it?  Think how much more useful D.ca is than any of your equipment.  Plus you get a cool "Donator" tag above your name.

how can you hate the lightness of them its the best bit, its what allows you to have great speed and accuarcy.
i would discribe spinabs as an aquired taste.

Yes, their lightness lends them perfectly to yoyo inspired tricks, because they are very responsive!
