Designed and used by ace diabolist, Ryo Yabe, this signature diabolo is one of the best one-way bearing diabolos we have seen.
For those unfamiliar with such diabolos, a one-way bearing, or clutch, diabolo has an axle that rotates in one direction but not in the other. Speed is built up in the usual manner by spinning the Fly in the direction that the axle doesn't turn. As with all diabolos, when you perform tricks, the friction exerted on the axle from the string or handsticks slows the diabolo's spin.
Now, here's the clever bit: With the Fly, this effect is greatly reduced because the bearing in the Fly's axle does turn when under such friction. This means that the Fly's rate of deceleration is much less than fixed axle diabolos.
The result is a diabolo that spins quickly for long periods of time, making it easier to pull off long and complicated string tricks. The Fly's bearing, combined with its chunky wide axle, also gives this diabolo exceptionally long stick and finger grinds. Furthermore, the bearing axle means that the Fly is very stable at high speeds.
The Fly is more than just an axle though. Like a lot of Eastern diabolos, the cups are made from a rigid plastic which is very responsive to stick corrections, a feature that is especially useful when playing with multiple diabolos. The plastic cups clean up really well too!
But be warned; because they are plastic these diabolos should not be dropped from height onto rough/hard surfaces as they scratch easier than rubber diabolos.
Purpose built rigid axles and LED light kits can also be bought for the Sundia Fly making it one of the most popular diabolos we stock.
This diabolo is one mean beast!
N.B. If you want to add a light kit to your Fly we'd recommend choosing one of the following colours as they are translucent and will help to make the most of your glow kit: Translucent White, Deep Blue or Light Purple.
