Title: Some runs with 6 diabolos + New record
Post by: Pieter on November 11, 2013, 09:22:54 AM
Hi,
Here's a video of some runs with 6 diabolos I did at the end of 2012 and the summer of 2013.
The last run is a new record: 10 throws!  ;)

Incredible.

Although I found myself just watching the way you jumped. For some reason it amused me. I really don't know why ::)

If you want to be really picky, it is only 4 since throws caught from your arms do not count, it is 4 catches but it is 9/10 throws, depending if you consider the first throw from the string as a throw.

anyway, that is a bit of technical stuff but it is not to say that you 'Only did 4 catches'. It is amazing and I hope you can run it for longer with time! Next I want to see you do 5 high to low :P

Who came up with this rule?

I am not certain that this is a rule but I do (or at least did) think so. Maybe I just heard people saying it as a joke but it does make sense, it is 4 catches from the string but 9 including the throws from the hand. Maybe I am getting confused because I thought that throws from another person into 4D low do not count as your own catch. Still, being able to throw 5 diabolos one after another perfectly like that is not an easy task by all means!

The way I see it, the person managed to get 6 diabolos in the air. Personally I don't particularly care how that person did it, but they did it. I'm not going to get picky about whether they tossed 5 of them with their hand (which is still bat**** crazy cool) or whether someone threw them up for them.

I say 9 catches/10 throws/whateveritscool

Last run is 9 catches! Excellent work, very soon it will become cleaner and cleaner (possibly even a 7D high attempt if you can hold that many diabolos  :P )!

I agree with this, it's about catches not throws, all the throws from the arm go similar height to the diabolos thrown from the string anyway!  ;)

Thanks for the comments guys! ;)

And this is the way I see it:
I think that you have to see the tosses like something that a lot more people can do (just throwing 5 diabolos by hand in the air..), the difficulty is to catch them again on the string.. so i think that's why we count the throws of the tossed diabolos as well... sounds that plausible?
why I think it are 10 throws: if we would count a flash, it seems logic to me, you just have to threw 6 diabolos. this means the one that's already in the string and then the other 5 you tossed up... (it would be strange if we don't count the throw out of the string, because otherwise you should catch a diabolo which you already have thrown up to qualify a flash...) If you would speak about catches a flash would be only 5 catches, so it is more clear if we speak about throws, a flash is 6 throws! So the last run was 10 throws and 9 catches... :)
To qualify (and not just flash) 6 diabolos, I have to throw 6 times after the start, which means the 6 diabolos I already have thrown... (and in these video i threw 4 of them..)

I hope this makes it more clear for you! :-D

Never count throws. They are only half-achievements. Count catches. They complete the achievement.

And well done!

Congrats and well done... I'm still working on my 3D...  ::)

But without throws there won't be catches will they ?  :o

who cares if he threw them or caught them and how many catches he did. did anyone else see he had 6 diabolos up there!? If your gonna poke holes in his achievement go ahead but at the end of the day he is the only one who can do it and the fact that those diabolos are up there is proof enough i need that its possible. so dont be dissing.

Well, he does. He calls it his personal *record*. So the debate is about how this achievement should be *recorded*.

I'm not sure if you are directing that at me amongst others, but I am certainly neither dissing nor poking holes. Like I said, "Well done".
And thx4thx, Norbi.
