This is our record. I don't try and undo all of them, just cut half of the strings and redo them. After years, I still don't get how kids do this ??? I couldn't do it if I tried.

23 rips? what in god's* name are you doing?

The rips happened a long while ago when i still use to do the EXTREMLY STRONG power pulls in the hope it will go faster (About 1 3/4 years)

The tangle was from "The vanishing bridge" trick i accidently dropped the sticks and it got all messed up

The hits in the face were when i still didnt know you needed to spin for excalibur/vertax >_>

Well i think i have one as well,

Diabolo tangled up due bad technique for doing speed loops.
The string was cutted in three parts. The middle and two short
ones. Because the string broke down in to three pieces by the
end of string (near sticks) it also caused knots form the stick
to open, both.

So actually it was like BAM! I was holding two sticks with no
string at all. String was in three pieces on the ground and diabolo
was rolling away. And i were like, "WTF mate? what just happened???!!"

There you have it, "the instant string change".

Turned up at BJC to find my 2 sets of sticks and strings knotted together. Took 15 minuits and about 4 people to get, nowhere... Had to restring both sets much to my annoyance.

Moral of the story is, don't let your sticks get twangled... yes twangled.

I'm just spreading some wisdom...  I'm not hating and I can't say I needed 34 minutes to untie a knot or any of the other things you listed...

The man has a point.  Most of these "records" are useless little gimics that come with diaboloing.  Before long we'll have the "longest time spent on the toilet before a diabolo performance" or other similar records.  Theres no point voicing out your records to the diabolo community when quite frankly no one really cares.  Sorry for the rant but these topics are all to common on this forum as of late.

Amen.

Before long we'll have the "longest bunny taken before a diabolo performance" or other similar records.

I don't really keep count. Maybe we could turn this thread into "how many mess ups you've had during a show"? The most mess ups I've had during a show is probably 5 or 6 drops. I'm getting better though. I don't think I've ever had a show with zero drops. One of my shows had only one drop.
