As always, it's a great video with great trick! Especially was 1'19 and 1'27! I also like the trick of jacob was 3'56. The idea of boxes of cigars with the diabolo Nate is not too bad. Frankly you guys provided! Good continuation and I look forward to the next.

Sorry for my bad-English-

Sick job guys...Glad to have seen it in person in Rennes. 

It's definitely all about non wrapping full genocides. That's a big look right there :)

I fully just took advantage of my schools smartboard. That certainly deserved a big screen viewing, awesome tricks, skills, location, editing....

Loving the contact stuff!

Are you guys around in the summer in the UK or are you headed back stateside?

Thanks for the super nice vid!

Thanks for all the great comments everyone!

Jacob will be back in the US street performing through the end of July, then we'll be performing at the Edinburgh Fringe in August then back to the States for both of us.

What did you study in Cambridge? Diabolo :-D?

Haha, nope.  Jacob's doing physics, I'm getting my master's in Engineering for Sustainable Development.

Great job guys, always excited to open my diabolo.ca window and fall on your new video!
Very visual tricks as usual, I really like Nate's manipulation researches too. The editing, scenery and music are perfectly matching and give the clip a smooth atmosphere. Hope to meet you in person someday!
Keep inspiring us!

well it might be the sun stroke/lack of sleep or general exhaustion but that made my day in a big way.

Nate's stuff in front of the ivy 1.28 was the fantastic.

thankyou!

1:37 and 3:37 is awesome.

Title: Re: Sharpe as a Tack.
Post by: Catjar on June 14, 2010, 08:22:40 PM
that was so great. I liked all of the smart genocide variations especially the one at around 1:30 and there was even a vertax one.
the 3d stuff was very impressive.
Title: Re: Sharpe as a Tack.
Post by: Diabzzzz on June 14, 2010, 08:35:58 PM

Hope we'll met again !

it's a masterpiece!!
Title: Re: Sharpe as a Tack.
Post by: Jem on June 14, 2010, 09:28:14 PM
Nicely, nicely! I think I liked the 2d columns above the head the best and the genocides when you completely let go of the sticks like that.

The first geniality, in my opinion, was the vertax-self-passing-thingy at 1:19. So smooth and well done. The static integrals (if I can call them that) was also mindblowingly smooth, my favorite being from 1:27. Nate seems quite inspired by cigar boxes? No matter what, those diabolo throw-and-catches was cool. And some 3d mini-columns by Jacob, that was amazing! Great job ones again, the both of you.

1:21 Self vertax passing, and straight after that genocide both sticks release made my world a better place.

Lovely! You really inspire me, Ive been working on some similar stuff lately. I really like the way you think your tricks.
What kind of sticks do you use? Henrys Carbon? They seem a little bit heavier than normal.

Keep on the good work,
Raf

Nope, just simple short Henry's Carbon with some white electrical tape.  Thanks again for all the positive comments everybody!

I always thought Two Weeks would be good for a diabolo video. You hit it spot on. Cambridge is beautiful and so are your tricks!

Sometimes a video is so good that you wait a week trying to come up with a comment that does the video justice. I give up. This video rocks. The diabolo world is such a better place having you guys around.

The magic knot at 1:40 may just be the coolest thing in history.
