Diabolo string is made from durable nylon that provides the friction necessary to get your diabolo up to speed. Eventually your string will get dirty or start to wear away and need replacing so we stock a variety of lengths of spare diablo string. You can get our own variety by the metre or you can buy 10m, 25m, 70m or 100m reels of replacement string so you’ll never be without a change of string when you need it. Depending on personal preference and your sticks you’ll need roughly 1.5m of string to replace your old string.
Not all diabolo string is the same. Budget string like Mr Babache’s discovery and Super Smooth string is perfectly fine for beginners but more advanced players will feel the difference between this and the higher end string like Mr Babache’s performance and Henry’s. Henry’s is widely considered to be the best diabolo string.
Most varieties come in a range of bright colours, many of which are UV active and glow brightly under black light or in the ambient UV light of dawn or dust.
We also stock kelvar string for use with fire diabolos. This is essential for these props as the heat from the fire will melt the nylon variety and a runaway fire diabolo is an extremely dangerous thing! The fire diabolo string also makes extremely good crackers for fire whips.
Firetoys have the most helpful staff to speak to. I called Firetoys and the chap talked me through the right weight, stick material, bearings or not and price range that we would need to look at. The diabolos are perfectly right for our children and I really appreciate the help choosing. I would definitely use Firetoys again and highly recommend.
I'm totally satisfied about the item I received and about how the delivery has been handled. The parcel has been properly delivered in a few days. Thanks a lot.
Both items received are excellent and the helpful phone call and following service were second to none. Many thanks!
It came exactly as described, promptly and without excess packaging. Really accurately described! I'm really excited to play with my new toy and exceptionally pleased with the buying and delivery process. Thank you Firetoys for a great purchase experience!!
Your customer service is outstanding, as always. This is why I shop through you and always have done, despite (occasionally) being informed of cheaper outlets, I could never expect the same quality of service from them.
Everything I had hoped for and more! I will definitely buy from you guys again as soon as I get better at juggling. Thanks!
Having experienced this level of customer care for which I am very grateful, I can confidently recommend Firetoys to my colleagues and friends. Many thanks
Amazing and friendly customer service and beautiful great quality equipment. Bought a couple of hoops from here and both are great - when I had a very unlikely issue it was solved straight away
I would definitely recommend Firetoys to anyone and they'll have in me a future customer because of their good will and customer support! Thank you!
Loving your range, and thank you for such a speedy call about my flowlight dilemma!! Got 'em ordered, in the end...good vibrations from your customer service, completely satisfied!
Sick one, boys. Cheers. Super quick delivery and just in time to give to my fella on his birthday. Heartily impressed, will be in touch again without a doubt.
I'm really pleased with my order! It was a fast delivery and my new items are of great quality, very nicely made. I will remain a loyal customer of Firetoys!
