Perhaps you're secretly the world's leading 5 diabolo expert, but did I miss the bit where everyone in the world got their 5 high stable enough to attempt 5 low?

So tell me what's so insane about a failed 5d low attempt?

Quite simply that someone has become good enough at 5 diabolos to attempt it.

Oh NSY please could you just please shut up? Diabolo is NOT a competition and seriously stop comparing diaboloists in that way!

ITS FAILED FIVE LOW

Yup  8)

the world's leading 5 diabolo expert

How do you precisely know Ofek is the worlds leading 5 diabolo expert? Have you seen something from Tony lately? Do you know if PERHAPS Tony would be able to hold it too for +200 catches? Please stop speaking of things you dont know anything about and please stop idolizing people as "5 diabolo experts".

but did I miss the bit where everyone in the world got their 5 high stable enough to attempt 5 low?

Quite simply that someone has become good enough at 5 diabolos to attempt it.

If you had just a small amount of brains you would've figured out that Ofek had a stable 5 high for quite some time now. IF you had just a small amount of brains you would be able to figure out that he would be able to TRY and lower it.

wtf? Perhaps you missed this, but IT'S FIVE LOW.

wtf? perhaps you missed this, but yeah IT'S FAILED FIVE LOW. It isnt alot of catches, to say barely a proper flash.

Number Chasing Trick Monkey
  <--- Ofek. Since he obviously doesn't care about sticking at a number to try and explore it.

I would much rather see Ofek shortening down that string and learn a proper shuffle and tricks instead of just learning 4 high, learn 4 high 55550, move on to next number.

So all in all D.Ca, I beg you to stop idolizing people. It is a good thing you support them but when you start to get fanatic about it, it becomes unbearable to hear. Everything Ofek does is not right and super awesome. Ofek is a good diaboloist and i think it is good that he keeps on learning, though he is just not my favorite diaboloist in style and such. I respect him for trying to push the limits, though i do not agree that these are the limits to be pushed.

Rant over.

What's so bad about idolizing someone? Most people create idols as a motivation and a source for personal goals. I agree that acting fanatic, screaming "I LOVE YOU OFEK!" is a bit over the top and that comparing artists to find the best is nonsense, because there's too many variables to consider. However, all in all I do support creating idols as a motivation, both for you personally and also for the idol him/herself.

I have great respect for your incredible multi-diabolo control, Ofek, and I really hope you will continue pushing this limit and impress us. Great job mate.

Sorry that would be my english to fail... I didnt mean that its a bad thing that people look up to them, its the fact that they heighten them so much that no matter what they think they are the best diaboloists in the world and that they get mad at people who doesnt think that.

My english isnt that good  :-X

why on earth are people so crazy about that attempt? if you want to see 5d, ask ofek to make a video of 5 high, because he can't do 5 low

Sweet attempt, that 5 high looks solid.

Nice to see about 3 decent replies on this thread as well. So so thick...

Hi,
just to make it CLEAR. I didn't publish this video. it was taken at 3 am in the morning when i tried to do some nonsense after my performance. i was tired  :o

oh , and another thing, my FAVORITE comment is:
"IT'S FAILED FIVE LOW". I'm REALLY sorry, that's the only 5 low i have.

Im just impressed that your 5 high is solid enough to lower. You cant shuffle yet but the drop is looking good. I wish i could hold my 4 high stable enough to lower. Cant even imagine 5!

Amen to that.

Those of us that have been around for a while will remember seeing 4 high to low at that stage and being in awe. I can't believe we (or rather a few people) are even contemplating 5 high to low as a semi-joke late at night at a convention. Heck, some of us remember seeing 3 high to low at that stage (for everyone but Tony that is).

Still trying to figure out why any video of Ofek makes so many people go crazy.

Thank you, I'm finding myself figuring the same thing all the time! Well, it's probably just the numbers thing.

I've always thought of 3D async as 4D with the 4th missing cause it's so slow. Now I'll think of 4D differently. Numbers is not my thing but still cool to see. By the way your 4D shuffle looks and how that first attempt looked it doesn't look far off...but ofc. that's easy for me to say who dont do 4 low even :P.

Tony won't do 5 low anytime soon (he has a heavy sync shuffle, bad control over it and is basically if not totally trickless in 3D low + he's geared towards performance...he wont do this). Not hating on him just saying. High numbers is what he does best not low and with him being a professional he probably wont "waste his time" on "nonsense" :P.

The diaboloworld has a lot of specialisation in it and this is just another specialisation. No need to get all upset, just stick to what you like. Ofek likes numbers obviously... so let him. Other people like different stuff. "Vertax is rubbish" but I dont see M4U getting massive hate.

Damn I stopped posting on this forum too often based on the "if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all principal". Sometimes I have to return though: 


How do you precisely know Ofek is the worlds leading 5 diabolo expert? Have you seen something from Tony lately? Do you know if PERHAPS Tony would be able to hold it too for +200 catches? Please stop speaking of things you dont know anything about and please stop idolizing people as "5 diabolo experts".

I never said Ofek was the world leader in 5 high diaboloing (though all evidence we have is to the contrary). I am commenting in response to the person who was angry that people enjoyed this video. My comment was merely illustrating that in the published world of diabolo videos there is very little evidence that anybody has even attempted to lower a 5 diabolo pattern before, mainly due to nobody's patterns being stable enough. Please read and try to digest the content of a post before responding to it.


If you had just a small amount of brains you would've figured out that Ofek had a stable 5 high for quite some time now. IF you had just a small amount of brains you would be able to figure out that he would be able to TRY and lower it.

I refuse to resort to petty name calling. Suffice to say you missed the point of my second comment and decided to reply with an unnecessary and vicious reply. Of course he will try to lower his pattern, I'm glad he has, and glad somebody showed us it. If you are one of these people that finds the ever repeating number chasing trick monkey post amusing then here is a little tip, don't click on any short video with a title along the lines of "5 diabolo low attempt".

Some of us are old enough to remember being in awe of a video of Guy Heathcoate running 3 low for a period of about 10 seconds. Any number diaboloing has amazed me ever since and I applaud Ofek's progress.

I also remember a very old video I saw which had a short 2 diabolo run at the end. I always thought that 2 diabolos was the ultimate 1 diabolo trick, 3 diabolos is the ultimate 2 diabolo trick etc.

One last thing at the risk of sending Tipper into a frothy ball of fury...


How long have you ran 5 diabolos for Ofek, what would you deem to be your longest run. I know some people will detest me for asking it, but I find it fascinating and would love to know what you can do.

Oh nezzy Please dont mistake me for being The type of guy who are constantly mad and flames everybody ;) in fact, I would like to know That too. I've heard he can hold it for over 200 catches so far and seeming how clean That looks I wouldn't be surprised if he could hit 300 on a good day.
