the too good for their own good award
« on: March 28, 2008, 06:19:28 pm »
ok... this is just like a thread where people post who thinks who is the best diaboloist of the moment.
It is not a serious competition just a little fun.
thanks

Adria. Discussion over. No need in this thread really.

Also this might be worth posting, I hope Josh doesn't mind as he makes a good point.

Disclaimer: This is a rant so don't read it if you don't want to.

Someone on youtube tried comparing Jacob Sharpe to Tony Frebourg and as we know, you can't compare two diaboloists of such high caliber like Busk or Antonin and say who is better.  I simply tried pointing that out that by saying that how can you compare fts 2-3-2-1-2-3-2 to 4 up 360's and 5 high.  It's just different.  Then this other guy said "you think tony can't do a feed the sun" and I basically said that no I don't think so because 3 low isn't tony's strength just as say Antonin's strength isn't 3 low.  People have different area's where they tend to shine.  Antonin at 1 diabolo, Busk at 2 diabolo, and Tony at high siteswaps.  I pointed out how tony's 3 low tricks was kinda iffy in diabology (3 diabolo armstall) and he hadn't posted any 3 low in his last video so you can gather that he's 3 low isn't quite as strong as 3 low.  We also know that 3 high has absolutely NO EFFECT on 3 low.

Only a snippet from his post but it basically says comparing diaboloists is a waste of time.

that is just his opinion and also it is a chance for the people nominated to know that they are being recognized.

I think this is more about peoples favorites, as it is already said, impossible to tell whose the best.
But still a tough one to answer to..

Busk, Jibe and Tr'espace are the diaboloists I could watch forever.

Yabe/William, Sharpes/Pranay, and...

I'd like to say Busk, but I have yet to see his skills.  Recommend me a promo of him, anyone?

I second this.. If you wanne know who is the best diabolist you should have them each seperated on diffrent areas. 1d 2d 3d 3 low 3 high etc.

Everyone has his own style  :)

I think we should do who is your favorite diabololist ? :P

I'd have to say Langerz, purely for the execution and precision, and also the speed at which it is done.

It blows me away every time, more so than any other diaboloer/artist I've seen, but this may be down to the fact that i am relatively new to diabolo and not well educated/informed of other diaboloers/artists.
