What's this trick called? (Loopicide or mini duicide?)
« on: May 06, 2005, 03:18:11 am »
Hello everyone,

I'm new to diabolo having only started a few days ago and so I'm still learning all the terminology for tricks and stuff but I don't know what the name for this trick is and so I'm hoping someone here might help me.
I think it's a suicide type trick because I let go of the sticks (both) but I start it from the loop (?) Forgive me if I used the wrong terminology but I labelled it loopicide until someone helps me witht the correct name.

Thanks to anyone who can help me.

i cant watch avi.s at this point in time but by the sounds of it its a sun to duicide if as you say you let go of both sticks. but hey this is just a guess.

the loop mentioned is as in 'loop and hook' that some people use to set up for a whipcatch. so you have both sticks in one hand, release them both as if they are one stick in a suicide.
I have seen / done it before but havent a clue what it should be called. I shy away from using duicide in the name. I like the name loopicide but it might have another one allready.
Theres a nice variation you can try Dan of catching one of the suicided sticks and allowing the other one to keep swinging, that will leave you back with the diabolo in its normal position (or ready for some other madness)

Welcome to the forum Dan, I look forward to seeing some diabolo multiplex stuff in time :)

I'm pretty sure that's called a mini-duicide. I think it's in one of Donald's books, but I can't recall.
