Horizontally Orientated Diabolo is Rubbish.

The only style of diabolo that is of any interest is vertax and everyone who plays horizontally lacks originality.

Vertax is good, but most of the stuff is taken from preexisting normal plane tricks. Eljas' and Joona's integrals and string figures are sick.
Sorry for my awful posts years ago. I was even more anal and un-self-aware than i am now.

On the contrary. Normal plane tricks are taken from vertax.

Ben clearly is rubbish at normax, hence the dissing.

Now this is very gratifying.  Actually Trespace is calling Vertax "Horizontal play".

i always used this notation, because for me it was always more important the plane that the diabolo is following than the orientation of the diabolo's axle
