The cups are made from a surprisingly light but tough rubber and have a dimpled surface similar to a golf ball. As on a golf ball the dimples help to keep the diabolo spinning quickly and stably. The hub is made from strong black plastic and is wide enough to accommodate finger grinds comfortably. The stainless steel axle is great for grinds and complex string moves. The Eagle’s massive cups make it easier to nail impressive whip catches but they do mean this diabolo is a little clunky for close body moves. The Babache Eagle diabolo is great for two diabolo work but it’s worth noting that the dimples ‘vibrate’ the handsticks during corrections which can be a little weird at first. As with all high level Babache diabolos the finish is great and the prop screams quality. The extra size of the Eagle gives it great momentum and further enhances its stability. The Eagle’s low weight to size ratio makes it a pleasure to use.
