Sundia "Nimble"
« on: February 28, 2010, 04:56:41 AM »
recently i was browsing ebay, because its really the cheapest place to get sundias in the USA and i found this diabolo called the sundia nimble. So couple of questions
1. is it a new diabolo? not just some name they pulled out of a hat
2. if it is new, how is it different from the sun and fly (bearing axle on fly aside)
3. will the light kit work with it ?
4. if you have used it how does it compare to others?

sorry if im asking too much here is a link for the listing i found it on

Here's what I've come up with:
-cups like the fly but not as thick
-fixed axle
-lighter - 240 grams

Interesting they've gone that route. I wouldn't have thought there would be much of an advantage to the hard fly cups besides with bearings. Perhaps they can be made lighter and thinner while still staying rigid enough?

I've done some ground work for this month or two ago. Answering to Ecuador16. Yes, it is a new diabolo but based on Fly diabolo. Mainly it's a Fly but they have changed the cups (like Sean said) to be thinner.

Basically it's a lightweight fly diabolo. So i expect both fixed axle and bearing versions. Price will be cheaper than the Fly. That's all i know for now (in addition to what Sean already said), once i get my hands on it will do better review. ;) I just hope that thinner cups can take the beating.

Bump because I'm interested...how is it? More durable cups than Flys?

Nev kindly swaped my knackerd old fly cups for a nimble cups, so I have a hybrid, I think it makes the diab play even nicer as the orginal fly was slightly heavy for me. The material is roughly the same so the plastic still scratch's up on hard services but its durable and the colours are really nice and vivid.
