Therefor I think that longest synch and longest asynch 3d shuffle should be recorded as seperated records. And longest trick run is also nice :)

I'll see what I can do for 522 w/ sun in a row, it's gotten better, but I haven't tried yet, we'll see, maybe tomorrow. just got 7 360s (2520) in a fan (it was an s-fan, and mine aren't great, so I don't know if this is impressive). No one's posted these yet, I guess people who can correct their s-fan could do one or two, then stop and correct, then repeat, though for the record, mine were in very quick succession, and I think that each 360 had 4 or 5 rotations, or 8-10 ott, with three on the left side and 1 or 2 on the right side. I think the most c-fan rotations (i'm pretty sure c-fan s-fan's are impossible) I've gotten is 3 or 4 (1080 or 1440), and if 3 then i've gotten very close to 4.

didn't want to say something I couldn't back up, so I just diaboloed for a while to try for a 1440 c-fan, and after getting quite close a few times, I finally got it.

...and shortest and longest string ever used would be fun to know.

I think it's no world record but I played with an about 10 meter long string, I also did 2 diabolos in it (though it only were about 6 catches).

And yeah, the string of Axel S. definitely is the shortest I've ever seen on stage (but yeah, he does a sprinkler in it :) )

Well, if it's 'just' for a worldrecord attempt, I guess people would be trying way way shorter string than Axel S, or John. Like just a few centimetres... and try 1d tricks with it. for 2 and 3 it has to be longer than that, but still it can be very very short. The problem is, when do you say someone can 'diabolo' with a string of let's say 20cm? What tricks has that person got to do?

It's a bit of a useless record really :P Though, I'd love to try running 2 diabolos in a 10 meter long string (or longer)! LOL! :P

What about seeing if we could get the bogleg Juggling Records Database to include some diabolo trick listings? They already include the diabolo in their database of props but there are currrently no trick categories. Might be more productive than reinventing the wheel.

I suppose the other alternative would be to develop a sticky were a mod updates the records at the top as new records are claimed. I would think we would have to limit the records to those with videos... or have an official and non-official version. Or just keep posting in a thread like this for fun... :D

Sorry, but I just can't believe that... :? How well-trained do your muscles have to be?? And it only counts if both diabolos are spinning all the time.

Ah well, we'll need a video for the official record anyway :)

doesnt an S fan give speed? so technically it's infinite. but man, you must have crazy buff arms to sfan for 20 mins :P

Yeah, sfan is pretty much infinite, but I would think your arms would get tired or something.

That is incredible. Too good to be true as it were. I would definintely need something more official to believe that. I can carry my s-fan around 2 minutes with circuses without corrections (but only because i can't do them) or a customized axel  and i get really tired just from that.

But it is easily infinite with the right axel.

Complete change of subject; if anyone wants to try a really stupid and potentially dangerous record try doing an infinties suicide on a pogo stick or s-fan on a pogo stick (this is much harder as you have to hold the pogo stick between your legs with your knees which is a major challlenge in itself)
I have tried both of these and have got no more than around 5 seconds with the infinite suicide and didn't even get one hop before falling of when trying the s-fan.

maybe he is counting an s-fan where they stop spinning for a while, and flop around before arighting themselves again and gaining speed before losing it again, I have fun doing this, but it doesn't count in any way.
