I`m not going to waste my time guessing what this is, while I`m much more intrested in this thing, and the ideoligy. Maybe it`s something new.

I'm slowly getting my thoughts in order,
I too am interested in what people think it might be.

Some clues
3rd base is a baseball term but also has another meaning in Americana (pg forum remember)
2nd base tricks also seem to exist but the only one I have done is tied into trashes web (possbly stealing 3rd)
1st base tricks I don't think so.
4th, thats a regular trick
Aspects of node theory maybe come into it.
Tweakage* possibly has a bearing on this.
Not every trick is 3rd baseable, some tricks are allready 3rd base version of another trick, we just haven't recognised it.
Not every 3rd base trick is going to be as ellegant as a regular trick, some wont be noticable to those other than somebody clued into 3b, even then sometimes its something to do for its own sake

so that's all a lot clearer then?

*tweakage: another concept not fully embraced by diaboloists en masse. but with parallels in several disparate (non juggling) pursuits

Sorry Matt_,

 that might give you an insight into how my thought process works especially when dealing with a fluid, developing concept.
I was hoping to have a bit more time to solidify my thoughts but when I have had up to 6 people at the same time questioning me on msn about either the base concept or arcane theoretical concepts tearing off to the realms of metaphysics then I tend to panic.

I think it will all become clear soon enough.

wow, this almost sounds like science. You should try to make a video, or something not only text-based, because if you visualize it, it might become a lot clearer..

good luck ;)
some people think they are better because they can do something better

The first thing that came to me mind when reading about bases from 1st to 4th is the categorization into 4 dimensions.
A "regular" trick is usually done in 4 dimensions (width, height, depth [moving towards the audience...? i'm net really clear about this dimension], time).
A 3rd base trick would then be something with one dimension less, perhaps missing depth.

This were just some ideas, they don't really make sense to me...

Sounds interesting, but I'm pretty confused.. :? Why don't you just give an example of a 3rd base trick. I think someone mentioned 3rd base trapeze and sprinkler in the just learnt thread.

Oh, I get it now!

Tweakage is definitely not fully explored.  It's all about the style.

I'm with nev on this one, I got baseball and "guess what sally cally ann let me do last night in her trailer" from the name.

I have been experimenting with trying to get the diabolo to do a 360 horizontally by tapping it in the air with a stick and giving it encouragement to turn with the sting on the cups before i throw when its spinning very slowly.

that’s not 3rd base I take it, I’ve also just cracked trashes web so any more info about the second base trick would be good to hear

Much confused

anyone else starting to think that this is some joke? Maybe its just me but this reminds me of all the times i randomly said something so i could laugh at my friends while they tried to guess what i was talkin about. Maybe im just crazy and sadistic, who knows? maybe they'll tell us what it is so i dont keep checking this thread every hour, cause its really starting to bug me....
