Hi Richard,

I just want to point out the following, look at your arm movements when you do 2 diabolos high at 1:32, and then look at your arm when you do 3 high...  The problem is probably your mindset as you just proved that you're able to siteswap with 2 diabolos with less bigger arm moves than just doing your normal 3 high!  just do it, 'cause you can! ;)

Thanks Pieter,

Are you saying I should move my arms less while doing 3 high?

If so, I think you're right. I think I need to settle into the pattern and then focus on less movement.

Yes! There is absolutely no need to, you easily throw a 5 when doing 2 diabolos high with less bigger moves than your normal 3 high...

Thanks, I've been working on this now and do find it harder to keep the arms down (although it is possible).

I wonder why this is the case - do most people who do 2/3 high have a problem with this? Maybe it's just a bad habit I picked up while learning to do this on my own...

very straightforward clean style on most things, which feels nice to watch, particularly with the duicide for some reason. i can't do 2d 360 fan or 3 high yet so i can't really give any advice there, and everything else looked pretty good :P
Sorry for my awful posts years ago. I was even more anal and un-self-aware than i am now.
