I downloaded Norbi's video expecting to see them great diabolo tricks he does. Holy crap, he was juggling rings like a wild man! Very impressive! He really IS a slick all around juggler.

Plus, his profile doesn't make him sound like an egomaniac, unlike some jugglers....

yeah, I saw it too and was really impressed, I think it'd be cool to see what people can do with other props, I know matt hall is a really sick ball juggler, great with 5 ball siteswaps.

He looks even better in real life with his 8 rings and his genocides.

Ooo, fight fight fight... Duel at dawn, choose your weapons.
I too am interested in diaboloists other juggling talents as well.  I'd like to know whether it transfered over better learning and coordination skills if you practised other props.
Matt Hall is a don at many props including bouncing and cigarboxes.  Tony Frebourg bounces and ball juggles.  JiBe passes clubs like a demon.  Most of TMFP aren't shabby jugglers either.
Norbi and Luke Burrage are nifty toss jugglers too.  I work on 5balls, bouncing, some rings and firey stuff when I'm not diaboloing.  Though I'm not fantastic at any one prop unfortunately  :oops: Maybe I should specialise more.

Maybe the word should be sick... and I consider myself a bit more than just "nifty" when it comes to juggling. Some "Luke Juggling Skill Level Trivia" for you: while my record with 3 diabolos is only 40 catches, my 5 club record is over 8 minutes (1,800 catches).

I think the skills transfer well.  I started juggling before I started diabolo, and think that juggling helped me pick up the early diabolo stuff.  Learning as many different props as you can is also good because it means there's always something you can make progress with while you're stuck on something else.
