What diabolo should I get for my little Bro?
« on: April 27, 2010, 03:06:26 AM »
My little brother is starting to get a little better at diabolo. Good enough to always be wanting to use my diabolos instead of his (Higgins element).

I want to get him one for his birthday, but he is still only 9 years old. Not sure if I should get him a full size diabolo.

Any suggestions?
Yoyosam.com is where I get my stuff.
Where do you get yours?

how big is he?, is he struggling with your diabolo? If so because of the size or weight?

Consider, one of whatever you use (that way you can use it as well :) ) But if he can't hack it then that's a waste.
A lighter full size diabolo (Glary or something) (might still be unweildy for 9yo)
3/4 like a Vision (good deal with allys) or tornado
Just a better medium diabolo than he's got already get him a bigger one when he's ready

I suggest glary, or finesses. I was teaching kids and they didn´t have any problem with finesses

Kids are usually fine with finesses
