Just that first sequence alone is beyond me, so so so smooth everything. Makes me whip out my ball bearing and put on that delicious track.

This was epic! I think I remember him being in a video a while back, I really want to do slacks and mounts now, I mean it is something nice to do at home or just outside on a walk, numbers is cool but it just takes effort, this is something to do and chill. It also looks insanely awesome and complicated. I think I finally found a use for my triple bearing shinings. I wonder, have people done stuff like this with 2D or even 3D? I mean people have been doing tricks with 2 yoyos for a while now and this looks similar.

That is too good for being a votw.

@ Ronnie: Langerz and Jem were doing pretty crazy slacks. I believe also Saska did some things. And there is a guy in the last collab whose name is something like vikh... which is pretty good. And probably more that I have no idea about since I don understand what is going on in all these tricks

Oh I understand it takes effort to learn, I mean it looks wicked, but physically it does not involve the muscles moving as fast and as strongly as many diabolo high players.

Anyway, just why that comment? I really don't want to start another argument :'(

If you dont want to start arguements then stop making absurd comments.

How can you say after just watching the video that it doesnt involve as much muscle action. His hands are all over the show i cant even see what the hell he's doing. Besides i find speed and strength is nothing when there is no control or finesse.

Great Video btw.

OK, it seems like when I am saying something is brilliant I am somehow insulting it, I think I am just gonna stay out of this because I have no more strength to argue. I know strength is nothing when it comes to this, I am amazed by this as well and I am saying it is unique and different from other things, now this is my last comment on this thread, haters gonna hate.

Don't you have school today to be posting at 2 am?!?! :P (speaking of duties, I am posting from the office)
I think the problem is a wrong phrasing. I believe, 'it is no so tiring as training numbers' would have created less polemic.
Although, I think some other people practicing other disciplines as weight lifting, or other sports would say this muscular effort for multiple diabolos is negligible.
I consider the word absurd excessive after just a wrong phrasing.
And just don't take it bad Ronnie, nobody enjoys being corrected. But fortunately we all need it.

Impressive. But I would have preferred to see (say) just the first move, from a couple of angles, with slomo. I think this video potentially contains about 4 "video of the week"s. :-)

Haha, yeah it was 2am but I have a week off school, and if you asking I woke up at 11:40, only 6 minutes before typing this message.

I do agree I phrased it badly, but if someone just simply said it instead of just saying "pffft" it would probably be less intimidating.
Its bad phrasing from both sides of the argument.

I known I said I will not post on this topic, I guess I phrased that wrong as well :P I should say I will not reply to any arguments.

Anyway,once again, insane video! I love it and I'd like to learn it! I think I agree with the void though :P Although I guess once you get into these kind of tricks you I understand the foundations and you can build from that, but since I do not do it I can not say

Agreed. No one else has said it yet, so i will. At the end of the 3rd trick, the string suicide is a miss.

Apologies.

I think that LaNgErZ had some 2D stuff in "CoNtInGeNcY" Although i'm not sure because i haven't watched it in a while. Good to see you posting again by the way.
I liked the 2nd trick best in this video  :)

Excellent work, Michal.

Marko made a cool video and thread (http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=7681.0) a while back on some basic yo-yo tricks adapted for diabolo. It's probably a good place to start with getting your fingers involved. You could also try changing your normal mount or magic knot tricks so that you hold the string with your fingers instead of wrapping it around the stick or diabolo and just seeing how you end up. If it comes out in a mess, try to figure out how you could move the diabolo, string or sticks to make it into less of a mess.

Probably the best way to go about inventing some more advanced stuff would be to buy a yo-yo, learn some tricks and then try to find ways to adapt them to a diabolo. You could probably skip this step and watch yo-yo videos and tutorials instead, though.

And of course, once you come up with something cool, submit it for Video Of The Week (http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?page=votwsubmit) so that the rest of us can see it.
