Diabolo Guide

A diabolo game consists of two hourglass-shaped plastic cups that are balanced on a string using two handsticks. Of the Diabolo is moved on the string back and forth, where tricks, such as throwing up or turns, are possible. A hand is used to power the half shells. Players place that Diabolo on the cord, move the hands up and down, so that the Diabolo moved on the string.

Advantages and disadvantages of different diabolos

High quality diabolos last for several years. To show off these tricks, they should have good running characteristics. Small diabolos are more suitable for professionals. With them complicated art pieces are more difficult to execute. For teenagers and adults, models with a diameter of 10 cm or large diabolos with a diameter of 13 cm or more are suitable. Lay people in particular should resort to large variants. For children can be a difficult one Diabolo weight his hands and arms too much. This is where medium sized diabolos and normal size models with reduced weight – so-called Henry’s Visions – make handling easier. A special form are Diabolos with freewheel. These have one ball-bearing, which reduces the friction and thus increases the running time. The ball bearing allows longer combinations of tricks without the Diabolo must be driven again. Beautiful effects offer light diabolos. These are equipped with LEDs and light up while playing.

Special diabolos for tricks

Diabolos with LED kits can be separately powered by a charger. Models in which the LEDs can not be removed have the disadvantage that broken LEDs are not interchangeable. Beautiful lighting effects also result in phosphorescent diabolos that are translucent and shine at night. Classic diabolos are used with a wooden stick. In the meantime, rods made of aluminum, fiber or the very light carbon have become established as alternatives. Aluminum rods are often cheaper and very stable. Handles made of fiberglass tube are flexible and cushion strong shocks in professional tricks, so that the wrists are spared.

Learning to play with the diabolo

Those who newly learn the game with the Diabolo should initially restrict themselves to moving the half-shells on the string. If this is safely mastered, throwing up and catching can be practiced. In addition, the diabolo can be swung in a circle around the bars (Suns) or the player forms a pattern with the string (string tricks). The diabolo can also be performed around the body (body tricks), with professionals releasing the bars briefly (suicides).

These diabolos are recommended

A medium-sized model for beginners and advanced is the Diabolo Rainbow Rubber, which has a good manageable weight of 260 grams. Thanks to its colorful coloring, it offers visual effects in tricks and tricks. Also suitable for beginners is the Henrys Yo-YoLizard. Thanks to its transparent surface, it produces beautiful effects. The diameter of 10 cm and the pleasant weight make this diabolo easily controllable. A big model with ball bearings is the Big Top Jumbo by Flames N Flames Diabolos. It can be used for spinning and, thanks to the size of almost 14.5 cm and a weight of almost 300 grams, it runs stably at all speeds.
