Tips for 3D with bearings
« on: July 14, 2017, 07:04:40 am »
I've been doing 3d low for years, with standard bearings. I got a set of 3 Sundia Evo G3 with bearings. I am really struggling to get a shuffle going with a wrap or hover start. Without the friction of the standard axle, the 2 spinning diabolos tend to collapse togeather as I am trying to wrap in the third. Even when I get them going fast they tend to hit together when I unwrap the third diabolo to start the shuffle. Is there something I should do differently? Does anyone have any tips to make 3 diabolos work with bearings? I love using them for 1 and 2, I would prefer not to switch back to standard axles to do three. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

-1 as Bearings is deffinitely the way to go! IJA2016 and IJa2017 was won by bearings. Like at beginning all bikes were fixiebikes, nobody but those h-sters use them now. Bearings made tour de F. The contest as We know it.

and as common hint. 3Db low just needs that you really use your lifting hand. (Left if you play as rightie)

bearings already changed the vertax-play, and times, they are changing...

You can use bearings, but not in this way... (3 diabolo shuffle xD)
the only way to become good is to practice!

Well, there are some people doing 3 low with bearings, in the normal way, with shuffle etc. I can't recall his name but there is a guy from the MHD who does 4 low only with bearings. And he cracks feed the suns in such a solid way that is amazing!

In the words of Matt Hall. I stand firm that "bearing diabolos are cheating" ;P
