There's some new clips from the diabolo comp of the WJF on its site.
http://www.thewjf.com/index.html
Apparently they are releasing the diabolo comp on DVD!

That would be awesome if they could get the footage out (about damn time if you ask me).  I suppose it's what happens when it's called the "Auxilary Props Competition".  But there's gotta be some good stuff in there when you have top class people pulling out the stops in competition.  Cheers for the link!

Am I getting the wrong page or am I just a bit slow these days? Everytime I hit the WTF? site I can't easily find the clips (Ryos was easy enough but the diabolo comp ones?)

Edit: click on the link that says "NEW DVD - COMING SOON (Click for video)"
I know it sounds obvious now, but since I dont religiously visit that site It's hard to keep abrest of what's what.  Now if they put the words 'DIABOLO & BOX' into that link life would be a bit easier for the casual visitor.

WJF diabolo and box comp DVD

I see that the DVD for diabolo and boxes is now listed as available on the WJF site http://www.thewjf.com/diabolodvd.html .  Anyone have this yet and willing to write a review.  From all accounts of last year's fest, this should be a great DVD, but just wondering whether they have done it justice, and whether it is worth the $25 price tag.

Wow, it's a long time coming but it's all finally together.  I've seen the trailer and there did look to be some funky stuff in there.  Nice that they've padded it out with the intermediates and the 3Ball comp.

Everytime the WJF has "Coming Soon" at the end of their trailers, I always hold my breath [1].

I would love to see the whole thing, but i don't have the funds. Is it really worth the $25 they're asking for. Could someone write a review?

Well, i only watched some of it, not the whole thing. But, there is some real good stuff in there, probably worth the price as people say diabology is(i still need to watch/get diabology)

the trailer looked great! i think i'll get it....but as people said, a review would be helpful (do they show the entire diabolo routines, or just short exerpts from them)???

We've got the DVD for 2 days....
We do entire routines for the 5 finalists (5*4min), and 20 minutes exhibition of all the diabolists. The same for cigars boxes.

I should not say that is just some mad stuff...

Never did see a review but I bought the DVD anyway.  I guess that leaves me to write a quick review.  I just got the dvd in the mail yesterday.  Quickly popped it in the player last night.  Bottom line:  Is it worth the $25 US price tag?  Yes.  As Priam mentioned, it appears that the top 5 have their entire routines included.  There is some amazing stuff here.  There is also a lot of great stuff from diabolo exhibitions at the festival.  Since I enjoy working with cigar boxes, that was quite entertaining, too.  Camera work was good, although I found it ironic that with all of Jason's ranting about how Alan Plotkin misses stuff by not panning back when Jason is juggling higher numbers, that the wjf cameraperson quite often lost the top of the pattern when competitors switched to three high.  If I notice more upon second or third viewing I will update here.

i've watched it a bunch of times, it's a great DVD...i wish they'd included other peoples' routines and perhaps some stuff filmed in the gym. but hey dont look a gift horse in the mouth, i'm glad we got what we got.
