Buying a second diabolo
« on: January 08, 2012, 07:24:55 AM »
I have a sundia shining triple bearing diabolo which I'm really enjoying for 1d stuff.  From what I've read it sounds like fixed axles are preferred (and easier) for 2d so I'm wondering if I'd be better off with 2 suns or a second shining. I'd rather only get one more diabolo unless it's going to be more frustration than it's worth.

Also how essential is it that both your diabolos match for 2d? Could I get away with one bearing and one fixed axle, one 4" and one 5", different weights etc or is that just asking for trouble.

I started to learn 2d stuff with 2x sundia sun one way bearing diabolos n it was not to hard but I also had 2x MR B finnese fixed.
I now find it harder to use my bearing diabolos for 2d I just find I have more grip and control over the fixed diabolos.

As of different weights I don't see y u would buy 2 different diabolos when u now u want to learn 2d with them.

i would say its better to buy 2 suns or even taibolo v2's because i think price wise its only about 5 pounds more expensive to get the two taibolos or suns than to buy another shining (thats like 10 usd or 7 euros if youre not english) but ya i say get two new diabolo's i find it easier, plus, if you start learning any suicides genicides integrals and whats not fixed axels are often a bit easier because of the grip on the string.
well thats my say

I agree.  2 fixed axle diabolos are easier to do 2d with, and I've tried to use 2 similar-weight diabolos, one fixed and one single bearing, for fun before.  It's a bit of a bizarre feeling.  You're beter off getting 2 fixed axles, in my opinion.

Definately want to use fixed axel.  I got nowhere with two bearing axels, and got it fast with the fixed.  I used smaller diabolos for starters, it seemed to be a little easier at first.  I reccomend zeekio ( sidewinder or Higgins Brothers ( Anti Gravity.
