Beginner/Intermediate Higgins gear?
« on: July 30, 2010, 11:22:57 PM »
I've been diaboloing for about 3-4 weeks now. I'm using a HB Anti Grav with mediocre plastic handsticks that came in a set with the diabolo. I'm looking to step it up a level. I don't care TOO much about price, but it's a factor. What should I move up to next?

In terms of handsticks, I'm thinking the Xtreme handsticks off of the HB site.

For a diabolo, I'm really not sure. I just don't want to spend a lot and then not like them. I want high performance for good quality. I like the anti grav, but I want one thats a little better.

I also want to start practicing with 2. If I do so, do they both have to be the same diabolo? I'm looking into buying the tornado, because its very similar in size to the one I'm using now. I don't want the finesse because its a little too large for my liking currently. Any feedback on the tornado?

I learned 2d with that and a Finesse, but it's easier with same/similar.

Yeah, been looking around more and tending to lean to a finesse. Does anyone know the best place to order one (Canada) online?

Remembering from what you wrote in your other topic, I'd say just go up to Higgins Brothers when you get a chance and try out some Finesses (or other diabolos) and see what you'd like.

Yeah...I live further from Higgins than I thought. I don't live exactly in Toronto, but just outside. I google map'd it, and I'm an hour and a half from the store.

its definitely worth going up to the store then, because nothing is like having your own impression of diabolos
can't believe its not butter

An hour and a half away from the store is like being next door for some people.  When I lived in Edinburgh, I'd take a 3 hour train ride to go to Butterfingers just outside York (and, yes, 3 hours back).  Definitely worth it to try out the stuff.
