[VIDEO REQUEST] 4 diabolo hover
« on: February 05, 2014, 09:19:10 am »
Hey guys. I've been seeing a lot of 4 diabolo starts where people enter hover, without running 3 diabolos in one hand. My problem is just that I can't figure out how you get the 4th diabolo wrapped in your hand while running 3? (Kinda like Dixie's start)

Can anybody upload a video of their method of starting 4, from starting the 1st diabolo to the 4 diabolo hover?

Just a short clip ;)

The Dixie start is Guiliaume`s start, I think that the best start the hover is, Robin`s hover/stall start or high to low.

No it's not.

I'm wondering how he gets his diabolo up here, and manage to start 3d? Perhaps you could help me out here Dixie?

Ohh, you mean those start  :P
My apologize, but did you ever practice 4 low?
Its just what you like, but i cant do 4 low, I think that the best start high to low and the hover, Ive practice 3 low practice from high to low too.
Success!

He uses the start from folker who developed this start!

So does it work:
-You shuffle 2 Diabolos.
-Give both sticks into the left hand
-Put the third Diabolo on the sticks between your thumb and one of the sticks
-Put the 4th Diabolo with your right hand into a wrap like with only 3 diabolos.
-Give the right stick with the 4th Diabolo into your right hand. (The 4th Diabolo is still between the right stick and your thumb)
-Now give the third Diabolo spin like with only 3 Diabolos and shuffle 3 Diabolos with the 4th Diabolo still between your right stick and you thumb
-Than you have to move your right hand with the 4th Diabolo forward and backwards and when you do the backwards move you have to put it into the string
-Now the 4th Diabolo is still between your thumb and on the stick but now there is the string over the 4th Diabolo.
-The last step is to slide the 4th Diabolo down and you are in the 4d hover and now you have to rock 4d low :D

Boa, that was exertive to describe this start haha
Hope you understand this a little bit what i wrote.

This is the way we like to do it now. It's bad quality and it doesn't actually show the hover working well, but it should help :)

All praises to Folkert for coming up with a way to do a hover start with 4 without having to be superhuman and able to run 3 in one hand. I still have not figure out how to make 3d-in-one-hand work.

Such a nice tutorial, I think I will use it in a year or 2 :P
Seriously, really cool. Maybe this could go to Richard's tutorial website?

Here's something I filmed:



The first start is impractical, although I suppose it could be used to learn the wrap for the second one just in 1 hand not 2. I learned the hover in 2 days of intense practise, one day for the hover and one day for going into the shuffle (this was after I could do the 4D shuffle) and I did it for the first day with the first wrap because I heard someone doing it at ejc 2011. However after that I remember Folkert telling me about a wrap he invented and it worked like a charm, the diabolo had more speed and was at a better angle. The first wrap is a bit awkward to hold and, since it has no speed at the start, seems pointless however if someone is up for a challenge then give it a go!

It's just something I thought people might find interesting, go Folkert! And go Tyson too, that wrap you use looks really smooth!  ;)

exactly, thanks a lot folkert, this was the only start that really worked well for me  :-D.
although i can do 3d1h easily i have got big problems with getting into the hover after i spin up the 4th diabolo with my right when i try this start.
