Hi! I'm Kenni

I'm a working clown and I want to start using a diabolo when I'm on stilts to attract attention. I like it because it's very visible.

I have a econo Higgins model for learning on.

I want to buy one that I can add leds to, one that's large and easy to see.

I also wonder if I should get one with a bearing. I'm not likely to become a competitive diaboloist, it will be just a part of all the things I do.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

First off welcome to the forum!  :)

If you're just sticking to 1D then get a bearing (or triple bearing if you have the money) if you plan on learning 2+ it's better to start with fixed then transfer to bearing if you want. If you are getting fixed a Finesse G4 can have various L.E.D kits bought and attached to it, both for reasonable prices. Bearings are a little more expensive, the best option I recommend is Sundia Fly (single bearing) and if you have the money Sundia Triple Bearing. These can both have L.E.D kits added to them for a cheap price (however the L.E.Ds only come in green+blue sets at the moment, as Finesse comes in most colours and rainbow). If you go with bearing L.E.Ds look a lot better with the transparent cups on a triple bearing.
Well those are my options based on experience, there are others like Taibolo L.E.D but I'm not sure about them as I haven't used them.  :-|

Hope that helps!  :-D
