Which way do you spin?
« on: July 20, 2009, 03:14:18 pm »
I've ALWAYS spun it so that the top of the diabolo moves to my right. I use my left hand predominantly to pull the string. Lately I have been working with a few other people but because they spin it to the left I always have to face the opposite way in order for us to pass it in between and I was wondering if the majority of people spin to the left unlike me? Should I try to switch to spin it the other way?

You are spinning left-handed. The majority of people spin right handed. Nearly everyone learns to diabolo according to their day-to-day right or left handedness. I'd do whatever feels most natural for you and stick with it.

I'm right handed though :( I can do all the same tricks it's just that in the context of group tricks I am the odd man out unless I face the other way.

Oh, it's very cool to be able to face someone while diaboloing. It opens up so many doors in terms of stealing. Really. Take that as an advantage not a disadvantage. Not to mention very impressive you are so adept with your non-dominant hand.

Left handed diaboloism is awesome! I kind of envy you :)
If you try and don't succeed, cheat. Repeat until caught. Then lie.

Now that would be cool. To be able to diabolo with both hands... So many new possibilities with 2d...

I think most of us here are able to do diabolo with both hands, only few people rock with only using 1 hand.
Yeah, think of the possibilities! Everything, only turned around!

Audience, feel free to thank me! LOL
