I got this diabolo last christmas and I havn’t used it for awhile. Till yesterday when I suprisinglly got 4 toss and catches in a row!

are diablos harder than spin tops?


(Lets Yo ^^) #3

Not really but if you play with it for a while,you’ll get use to it like,
Launching it up super high,doing whips,and other stuff.
Its sort or like offstring but with sticks and no bearins

Spin tops look way harder. I picked up Diabolo in about an afternoon. It’s really easy. Obviously there’s a lot more to it than I’ve learned, but the basics are just about the same as yo-yoing.

Does anyone know if getting carbon sticks is worth it? I use Henrys Aluminum and they cut up string. I need faster sticks because these are really slow and hard to learn infinite suicides and genocides with.

But i use a Sundia Fly (long axle)
For throwing around i like my Mister Babache Finesse with long axle kit.

Carbon fiber sticks(at least the Zeekio ones) cut up the ends of the string in minutes. But it could be that the Zeekio Carbon Fiber sticks are just cheap($8).

A couple of them actually have one-way ball bearings. The Sundia Fly and Spinabolo diabolos have them.
