This week Tuloski (Furci Michele) from Italy demonstrates the often attempted but rarely mastered rocket start to 3 diabolos low.

often attempted? i've never seen that one before, that was awesome. that seems like a trick you'd see Yabe pulling off on stage (and that's a compliment, Furci ;) )

PS. that is one super long string

OK, maybe that was a bit exagerated... but I know Dave (barnesy) and Wes have worked on this start for almost a year with varying levels of success, and I'm sure plenty of others have too.

Of course that's taking nothing away from Furci. It's one bloody hard trick and I've never seen a video with that level of success before.

Good stuff!

Yes, I've worked on that start, but not for a while.  There was a time when I could get it to work almost reliably.  All three diabolos were definitely getting enough spin for the shuffle to get going.  The problem at the time was that I couldn't actually run three diabolos!  I can run 3 more reliably now (it's still not great, but is improving again), so I'll try to get back to it when I get some practice space.

Great trick-How long did it take to learn I wonder?

I don't think the launch itself is all that difficult to learn.  Catching it is quite a lot harder of course!  The launch is not much different for 3 high or 3 low.  I insist that it's the easiest start for 3 high.

If you don't know how to set the start up, this page explains it: http://diabolotricks.com/2Starts.htm#threediabolorocketstart

You need to experiment with the 'pull' for a while to find the correct speed and direction to pull in.  I think of it as an 'r' shape.  You need to pull up, _then_ to the right in one smooth movement.  You're aiming to get two diabolos to pop straight upwards with good seperation, and the third to stay on the string.   Try it and watch what happens.  Below are the faults and solutions I can think of.  These tips mostly apply to the 2 diabolo rocket start as well.  It would be a good idea to sort that out before running at 3!

* diabolos leave the string and go to the left - you need to pull to the right more
* diabolos go to the right - you're pulling right too much.
* diabolos end up in a tangled mess and don't leave the string - you're not pulling up enough (or you might be pulling too quickly).
* the two airborne diabolos don't seperate properly but do go upwards - you  need to change the height of the middle diabolo when you set the launch up.
* diabolos go into orbit - The start needs enough force to get a decent height throw on the highest diabolo, but it doesn't need to be very high.  I've had most success with it when I've paid attention to keeping it lowish, even when I have lots of ceiling space available.

Typing that has made me imagine chaos at juggling clubs everywhere as people give it a go.  That amuses me.   :)

I learn it in 1-2 week after the learn of 3 diabolos, but I had tried it 1-2 months before. And this video isn't the best (I also have done 1,5 min of 3 diabolos with this start).
I think is a good start beacause the diabolos are in a good position but is difficult to learn beacause the diabolos aren't spinned......

I was just about to start working on 3 and since the roket start is my tried and true 2d start, I was going to try the 3d roket start.

But now I'm scared since you all say its so super difficult.

Is it going to be impossible for me to learn this way?

If I've learned anything from the Hall-Yabe workshop (which is alot) is that the 3D rocket start is very similar to the 2D rocket start.  The difficulty is in the separation of the diabolos which comes from the position of the start, and how you pull.

I can never get the rocket start to work for me because i haven't figured out the angle of pull.  But if you have, hopefully the 3 will come easily to you.  At least to launch them into the air.

The difficult is the distance of one diabolo to an other and the low spin.
But it isn't impossible to learn...
