Use the diabolo. The spelling is actually diabolo by the way. It does relieve a lot of pressure on the gripper, and it protects the string as well by not needing the gripper to put so much pressure on the string to keep it from slipping. The friction caused by wrapping the string around the diabolo is what lessens the force needed to be placed on the strings by the gripping plates.
