it was an impulse buy... as much as I love my brightly coloured glary taibolos, I just couldn't shake the thought that owning a jet black diabolo would be completely awesome. so I bought a black taibolo super v2 and a reel of black string, and covered up the diabolo's washers (which are white) with black tape.

now I'm feeling truly evil... bwahahahahahaaa!!

Very pretty. I've always wanted a taibolo. My pink/black Henrys will have to do though. :)

Nice moves too. That suicide at the end is particularly sweet.

Dam all I got was 7 seconds of "black screen " or was that the joke? Lol

It goes very nicely with your top.

m - I opted for the taibolos because compared to most pro diabolos they're very light (and shiny!). the super v2 is weighted at the edges which keeps it nice and stable. had to get rid of my 300g babache eagle because it was doing my back in!

e - that would have been a spectacular joke. shame I didn't intend it...

w - cheers. now I'm planning to buy a black and red striped diabolo to go with my black top :D

...Was finally able to watch the video. It's like a giant crazy yo-yo. I'm sure you 'walked the dog' at some point. I like it.

maggied - I used to have a pair of carbon fiber sticks (which are semi-transparent) but they kept on breaking!

Maggie - I've done black sticks/string/makeup/clothing and glow-in-the-dark diablo with a routine done in darkness a couple of times. Looks great, but awkward to perform!

That BJC video is impressive, but I'll raise you this:
