I always thought it might be wicked to get a diabolo spinning and doing tricks in a room filled with purple smoke, so you can watch the diabolo pushing the air around it, and also the trails caused by suns and stopovers and orcits etc, reckon it'd work?

is this true?: as long as you have perfectly balanced diabolos, perfect technique, frictionless string and an entirely hand(left, right or both) dominated shuffle you can do a 2, 3 etc shuffle without any spin.

this is pure theory obviously. i'm just trying to reduce things that may be an issue in my research.

I believe that it's possible. Well, in theory ofcourse. Correct if I'm wrong.

well, if you have perfect technique you dont need frictionless string or perfectly balanced diabolos.. you can do suffle with anything like kettles and hamsters and phones and bottles? the physic wont make limits - but there is reason why diabolos shape is like it is and reason why it spin.. you know :)

This seems a big off topic, but if you wanted to do that wouldn't a smoke machine be easier and work almost as well?  Or dry ice or something similar...
