I'm not a diabolo person but when you can take something you eat out of and turn it into a workable skill toy, I am impressed! :o

When the Duncan Phoenix has the bearing in the one way configuration it is the same as the Spintastics Spinabolo.  Different manufacturer, different size, different colors, but the operation is the same.

I guess I was not clear.  The Phoenix and Spinabolo are the same.  They both have a one-way bearing and play the same.  There is nothing you need to do to the Phoenix if the axle is in the one way position.

This is from the Duncan site:  Duncan Toys adds new spin to their juggling line by introducing the Phoenix Diabolo. Duncan's Phoenix is superbly balanced and well weighted for long lasting momentum, making it perfect for beginners and performers alike. Featuring customizable shell colors and an integrated axle that converts from a fixed position to a one way bearing for easy learning and long lasting spin. Best of all, customization is tools-free with it's built in hand knobs making axle and shell changes quick and easy for every player.

When the axle is in the "one way bearing" position the Phoenix and the Spinabolo play the same.

Just a guess, maybe he's wanting a monobolo like the globe top above.  ???
