Best diabolists?
« on: September 06, 2005, 08:39:52 pm »
I was wondering for a while who do each of you consider the best diaboloists?  for what reason?  I want to seperate it into a few catageories.

1 diabolo combos:
1 diabolo in general:
Exacalibur (1 diabolo haven't seen anyone do it with two :D):
2 diabolo knots:
2 diabolo combos:
2 diabolo in general:
3 diabolo (low):
3 diabolo shuffle (how it looks synch)
"   "             "       (asynch):
3 high:
4 diabolo:

some of my opinions are

1 diabolo combos: Antonin
1 diabolo in general: Antonin/Eric
Exacalibur (1 diabolo haven't seen anyone do it with two :D): dunno
2 diabolo knots: Arjan (cause of the video for 10,000 posts)
2 diabolo combos: Makky
2 diabolo in general: prolly Makky
3 diabolo (low): hm... ryo yabe?
3 diabolo shuffle (how it looks synch): Trash
"   "             "       (asynch):baptiste
3 high: dunno
4 diabolo: Tony Frebourg

Give me some other insights onto these topics.  :D

I tried to fill it in, but simply not possible, because everyone`s style wich are so different. I`m flatterd you thinking me being the best at 2 D knots... well forget that, here are 3 names that pop in my head: Jacko, Antonin and Makky. Serious, watch their stuff good, they all have wicked idea`s.

And Vux too. He has some nice combinations with 2d knots.

I also think its pretty useless to think about who's the best diabolist... in categories or not... there just isn't such thing like the best in diabolo, it keeps changing, different ideas, styles, tricks, combinations.... I'd say shut up and juggle! :wink:

well, i dont think you can say "best" diaboloist. perhaps favorite diaboloist(s)? or diaboloists that inspire? for example, Tony might be "the best" at 4D (he has the world record), but Priam is my favorite, mainly because the first time i ever saw 4D was by Priam and in person. that's just a (true) example, i hope you understand what i mean.

The best diaboloist, is for everone another.
Therfore I will give no answer, but I like the Style of Antonin, Vux and also Tony. Antonin and Vux because of their "round" Style and Tony because he connects the diabolo with acrobatics in a way which is unique.

2 diabolo knots: Arjan (cause of the video for 10,000 posts)
2 diabolo combos: Makky
2 diabolo in general: prolly Makky

3 diabolo (low): hm... ryo yabe?
3 diabolo shuffle (how it looks synch): Trash
"   "             "       (asynch):baptiste

Ryo, Bernard, Fred, Baptiste.. maybe Quentin?..

3 high: dunno

what about JiBe..

4 diabolo: Tony Frebourg

yep. as we know this is pretty sure.

but who is really best? i like trash most, but ryo, bernard, antonin, priam, tony or fred.. somebody of them..

I agree with kapis, JiBe is probably the best at 3 high, I've never seen anyone better than him at high siteswap>

excalibur is Trespace from switzerland, the husband and wife team who have been to EJC. I'm pretty sure they lead the world in this area, I hear they can do 3 between themselves (not sure, I heard from Molly Saudek, an ex Smirko who coached wire this year and is a very very well known wire dancer in Europe and lives down the street from them that "they can do two, I think maybe 3")

I think I've got a video of them, very short but the first excalibur video I downloaded where they were doing moves and passing of diabolos between them.  Very nifty.

with one diabolo umberto is very good.

with three diabolos priam sorpres me with the final video.

is difficult to say who is the best...

After almost a year and a half, the famous diaboloists are changing.  It's no longer the MFP this MFP that.  It seems like such a long time ago that diabology came out.  I was just thinking how the times changing change who's the best in each category so I decided to refill out this chart.

1 diabolo combos: Diabolumberto, Antonin (Still...)

1 diabolo in general: Antonin

Exacalibur: Tr'espace, Tempei, M4U

2 diabolo combos: Busk

2 diabolo in general:  Busk

3 diabolo (low) asynch: Jacob Sharpe  (Honorable mentions: Priam, William, Zack, Tahia)

3 diabolo (low) synch: Ryo Yabe (seems like he's the only mainly synch person left cause like Tahia, Zack and other former synch people have all converted to asynch =/)

3 high: JiBe, Jacob Sharpe

4 diabolo: Tony (still... maybe Priam's catching up?  he did do a 4 high qualify live...)

Passing: Jacob and Nate Sharpe

There's alot of changes and new inspirational players.  The level of diabolo has increased so much in a year.  Excalibur genocides and 3 low are now somewhat common place.  I wonder what diaboloists 5 years from now will be able to do?
