Most complaints, including my own, are that it is too round and only pushes things around because of its weight, meaning overall it isn't as effective as Flash, Blitz or Variares. Any testing of it you guys have done, and a list of the times it has placed in tournaments (and what combos were used and even what it has beaten) would also be good.
Well, reading this:

You can read what combinations are the best for us.
First of all, quoting Uwik:
Diablo Metal Frame: 25.34 gr
Diablo Core: 25.99 gr
Diablo Metal Wheel (together): 51.33 gr
Diameter in Attack mode:
Diablo Metal Frame: 5.02 cm
Diablo Core: 4.45 cm
Diablo Metal Wheel (together): 5.02 cm
Thickness in Attack mode:
Diablo Metal Frame: 1.29 cm
Diablo Core: 0.80 cm
Diablo Metal Wheel (together): 1.29 cm
There are 4 possible positions in the Attack Mode. I have thoroughly gone through the instruction sheet to find the possible names for them, but they were not listed. So to explain myself, I just called them 1, 2, 3, and 4.
Position 1: Lynx Head over the Pegasis wings
Position 2: Rotate the Metal Frame 90 Degree clockwise.
Position 3: Rotate the Metal Frame 90 Degree clockwise.
Position 4: Rotate the Metal Frame 90 Degree clockwise. Lynx Head over the end of LDD's neck.
Here we have a better point of view.
Honestly, I really don't know at wich position's number is the best customizations. I must give a look to my Diablo and return here with the "correct number" xD.
Anyway, only one of them is the "correct" position, the position we prefer!
Comparing Diablo to Flash is incorrect IMHO.
Both of them are really aggressive, but in different ways.
Flash with its hits is able to generate a great Recoil and with its Smash Attack the other Beys have no or poor chances to remain in the Stadiums.
Diablo, in the correct position, is able to generate a great Recoil tha sometimes create the same effect of Flash, but its main feature is that it "crashes" the opponents rotations.
In the Italian MG, we love both Flash and Diablo but due to our kind of matches, Diablo has a lot of great features.
It's the only Attack Metal Wheel that can handle Flash: it's very important for us. Here on 10 players, 8 own a Flash. It has more stamina than Flash and in a lot of matches it makes the difference.
Sometimes, Flash fails its task due to bad luck, a great shoot of your opponent, or something else. If your opponent's Bey doesn't fly away from the stadium, Flash will lose.
With Diablo it's different; as you said, it pushes your opponent's Bey around the stadium, but at each hit your opponent's Bey will lose rotaions and you'll win thanks to this.
Attention! Saying this, I'm not saying that Flash is a stupid MW, or something like that. I'm just saying that these two MWs have different kinds of attack.
Personally, I love Flash more than Diablo, but it's a personal taste. I love to see things that fly away, that's all xD!
About Tracks and Bottoms:
I find GB145 and BD145 the best choices; you talked me about R145, but I have to test yet.
But we agreed on TH170 becuase we love it on Flash, and thinking that a lot of matches here are Diablo VS Flash, TH170 vs TH170 is a good way to fight xD
Also, due to its better stamina, I prefer RF on Diablo; it's because if you have to defeat a Flash, R2F won't be the best choice because of its worse stamina.
About test and tournaments: I've hosted "Il Signore dei Beyblade" the 9th of June.
