A diablo is used to 1) help guide the string into the jaws of the tensionhead, and 2) help reduce the stress on the string. Why they don't use them? I can't answer that. All I can say is that I use it on my Star 4 and Star 5, and on all strings.
There was a previous thread about the use of the diablo, so best search for that rather than bring that discussion up here.
