What happens if you put a yoyo string on a diabolo?

this might be a dumb question. but would it work? I cant try this cause I dont own a diabolo haha

if you mean put a string around the axel and try and use it as a yoyo then no the diabolo has no response or even walls to create friction and if you tried to throw it it would just drop to the ground.

thats what i figured. thanks

Yea, my room mate got a diablo and I tried this. It is basicLly too bulky to get a proper throw and is pretty useless when it hits the bottom of the string. It comes back because their is so much friction around the axel, but it is a very slow return and have to meet it half way.
