Hi guys!
I just wsnt to say that a frind of mine make some diabololight.
They'are real good, cheap(about 2-3 euro per diabolo, dubleside!) and easy to do... I find these kit BETTER then the henry's one(because the diabolo is perfectly balanced)
You can find everything at http://gepponline.altervista.org/home.htm
under "giocoleria - costruire - diablumo"
They are Red, white and blue

When I wanted to make some light kits for my diabolo, I found that website and planned on doing it like that.  Unfortunately encountered a few problems that:
1) Film canisters especially like those ones are extrememly rare now because film now comes in foil packages (in the UK anyway).  Most of the ones I see are the pop over the rim caps which don't work that way.
2) I have Finesses which don't have a convenient centre bolt hole to attach it to.

In the end I found some LEDs in some old toys that I tore out with the circuits intact and stuck them to jam jar lids which screwed into the holes for holding Evo4 or Evo3 kits.  Crudest things in the world, not terribly well balanced, but they do work.  I wanna get some more lights to do both diabolos.

Today i found some cheep glowsticks at my local supermarket so a got a few (20 :D ). After about an hour looking for the right screws and stuff in the garage opted of a high tech approch to mount them on my finesse....sticky tape.

 I was quite pleased with the results. So mounted a red and a blue one onto my sticks and cracked out the digital camera:

it feels almost normal. I think it looks wobbly because the glowsticks are  brighter at one end.  The sticks themselves are very light even compaired to my G2s. They just need to be reset every so often bacause of the tape holding them. The first picture of the diabolo on the table was taken after i dropped it, thats why the stick loks off center.

I still cant wait for the new MB lightkits tho :D

Quite surprised your supermarket sells glow sticks. I can only get them from fishing shops. I've gotta try this glow diabolo business.

This quote is from awhile back in the forum:

Quote
I know some people might think this is a really idiotic idea but here it is anyway. I was wondering if drilling small holes, say close to the rim of an opaque diabolo (circus / harlequin / white or blue finesse), might allow you to see a band of light that would help you see the diabolo.
I know the babache lights light up the bell, I'm not too sure if the henrys ones are do to the same extent.

(probbably get an annoying whistle as well)


I was thinking this too, and if it was done very precisely and carefully, I think it would work. It would be especially good if you stuck LEDS actually pointing through aswell, so that they were embedded in the diabolo, thus eliminating any chance of a whistling sound.

Also, if they were UV LEDS, if you had the yellow string that henry's do which is UV reactive, it would look wicked! I tried putting that string under UV and it really does work well.

Well everyone, watch out for my Finesse Ultra (trademark) LED kits. Coming to a store near you, soon! (joke) I may have a good go at inventing some though.

Yey - just ordered mine.  Bit concerned that they dont have any chargers yet though.  Should be able to use a universal adapter with it (depending on jack connection type) otherwise I'll have LED kits with no way of getting them to illuminate.

I've been told there are no chargers with them yet, but they are rechargable. I guess MB is gonna make us wait some more.
