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.
