for me it works perfect!
i recommend VLC media player(Video Lan) it plays nearly everything, its free and the best thing is: it has a slowmotion function :wink:
if it still dont works try to get some codecs!

would you say that you have to keep your sticks in a v-shape like Baptiste does on diabology?

because im poor, and i cant buy another henrys yet.. im using yohos..   (shame shame shame)    and the trapezed diabolo slips down the string and slowly hits the other diabolo before i can throw the 3rd one up?

this hapens somtimes with henrys aswell..  

and suggestions?


in other news..      this start helped me to feel what it is like to shuffle 3diabolos for 5 rotations!!!   i was like    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
i did a backflip  (litterally)    and i was in a basket ball hall with people practising basketball, and everyone was looking at me going  wha??

:D   so happy

When I was using the stopover start, I put tape on the ends of my handsticks.  It was cloth based tape, so was pretty chunky and hard wearing.  It allowed me to do a stopover on my Henrys aluminium sticks without having to think about it too much, and the stopover would stay in place perfectly.  Other sticks/people seem to be OK without tape, but it could be worth a go for you.

Good idea,

how long did you put the tape out to ?  (length going inwards)

this was annoying for stickgrinds yes?      but thats not a huge deal.


i use really weird sticks.    i shall take a picture of them...   i think there from a french company?

should i put the image here or in handsticks?    (avoids mistake)

Try ideas out for yourself - my tape was pretty near the end of the sticks, but there's no real point going into more detail on that.  Feel free to innovate!

It never bothered me for stick grinds - I tend to throw and catch them rather than slip them off the end of the stick anyway.  It did get in the way for whipping, but it was also the only way I could start 3 until I learned the wrap start (which is much better).

ah yes!    

i was thinking more in the realation of "is the diabolo supposed to do that?" and "is it just because im using yoho"



these are my sticks.

they used to be the same lenght as the standard woodies but i cut them down after suggestion by matt hall and why smaller handsticks are better.

(tell me if i should edit and repost in sticks)

They might be Babache Performer sticks, but I'm not sure.

A small elastic band stretched round the stick a few times would work instead of tape, by the way.  I used that for a while while I was still working out if I wanted to totally abandon the stopover start.

the sticks cant be performer because the handles are Rubber, not foam. oh the Mystery!

The first post on http://www.diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=35&start=225 answers the 'did you abandon the stopover start?' question.

i've got a question!

when I do the trapez start and put one diabolo in a right trapez and hold both sticks in the left hand, the diabolo with the trapez always slips down, and the logical effect is that they crash!

what do I do wrong?

p.s: sry for bumping, but I didn't want to open a new topic!

Nice one Busk.

How well the trapeze will hold is dependant on what sticks you are using. But you can use any sticks theoretically. My guess would be you're using Xtremes. The only thing I can thing of is try to keep the stick (with the trapeze around it) pointing at the axle, hopefully this'll stop it slipping down if not, go with Busks advice and throw it up fast :P

I have the same problem with it slipping down my carbons all the time.  Not that i find the start very productive for my 3d anyway so its no big deal but is it easier to have the sticks angled out widely or close together?

With my carbons a trapeze worked fine first time I ever tried it. I keep the my thumb inbetween the two sticks to keep them apart. So try that.

To keep trapezes from slipping in 2D, you need the the string all bunched near the tip of the stick, and have the sticks held apart, if in one hand a very wide V
