And I forgot to talk about the missed Alexander Xelo, who was the first to do a real 4 high on big stage (Jérôme was the first one for sure, but he was busking, Alexander was in big circus with a bit more pressure): he started alone (throwing 3 diabolos by hand) and could keep it solid, a lot longer than Jérôme or Double Face Duo. He could do 5 diabolo high too, but not so good as Tony, who became the best at that.

I don't think there's internet in heaven, but "hello Alex"!

And to add a little of history (sorry David Cain, it's no more the main subject, it's just for culture), it's at the start of the 3 low history than we discover the difference between "synchronous" and "asynchronous" pattern: only Tony and myself had as solid 3 low pattern in 2003 (we're synchronous). Baptiste practiced a lot with us, and I teached him everything I knew about 3 low, but at the end, he could make it, with a strange pattern: the "asynchronous" one. We understood that his 2 low was different than us and saw than he didn't move the arms like us for 2 or 3 low. The asynchronous pattern helped a lot to understand the mechanism of the diabolo low and to find new tricks. At the same time, Priam and Jibe worked a lot on the siteswap for diabolo, and lots of new tricks were created thanks them (Priam's 'feed the sun' is now a classic!).

I think it is also important to mention that there was a man (who's name currently escaped me) who tried to do the 4 low wrap start back in Diabology however I don't think that it was meant to be anything more than a silly attempt.

The man is 'me'  ;) and yes, maybe I was the first guy to try a start with 4 low (I totally forgot that), but my record was 4 throws and I never recorded it (never qualified it, but I never worked it in fact). In fact, I had another 4 low start, which one was worked later by Guilllaume Karpowicz (with his variation), but I never work it enough to put a video. Tony was the first to try from high to low, too, with almost the same bad record than me (or maybe 5 or 6 throws). In reality, there is no real 'first' in this case. It's almost the same story than 3 low, they are several "bricks" to make the wall: chinese girls, Guy Heathcote, Lena Köhn, Tony Frebourg, Ludovitch and myself (then Ryo Yabe, Baptiste, etc).

Yes for Alistair, he was the first one to do the wrapped start with 4. Guillaume Karpowicz was the first to have a low start alone and to have a solid pattern with 4 (with the help of thousands mails exchange with me and Priam like I did with Guy Heathcote and Ludovitch  :-D , thanks again guys!).
Before Lucas, Baptiste may had make a qualify with the help of someone (me or Jibe) to throw the last one. That's why Lucas worked on it a lot to beat the record of Baptiste (and he did), then Guillaume (the friend of Lucas) beated Lucas's record, etc...It's always 'one step forward' like.

For the 5 low, it's the same story in fact: Etienne tried it first with some relativ sucess, because he had the best 4 low pattern at this period, then Robin came and try to beat the record (and he did).

I'm feeling very old with this thread!!

For the video links,
I think I never saw Jérôme on video, because it was before internet! I even don't find any photo of him. He was famous in France (in the juggling world of course).
Double face duo, you can find some picture or video. But it was only a flash (starting from a 2 high, with the woman throwing 2 more diabolos...Very disappointed the first time I saw them).

Lucas, that sure, the're some video somewhere, in some "convention video", but which one?? In this one, at 1'05 you can see Guillaume doing it with Lucas throwing him the 4th one (it's not Guillaume Karpowicz, it's another Guillaume, the friend of Lucas who wasn't the first one to do it, but he became better than Lucas then and could keep it longer).

Tony doing 5 diabolos: he started in Swendborg in 2003, you can maybe find some footage. In 2004 he could do it well. The pirouette came at the same time, it's an easy trick for him.

Robin showed his 5 low to the world the first time at the end of this video (but he could do it since 1 year before the video):

Speaking of 4low, Trash is right about Lucas and Guillaume, but also consider Dekel and Ofek and their work in getting 4low from 4high.

Yes, that's true.

Luiz ask me on facebook to answer here. Hello everybody from here, long time not see!

I must be wrong, it seems there are almost only french guys in all my answer, that's strange...:

First to do four diabolos high -> The Void may be right, his name is Jerôme and his dog "diabolo". I don't know if he's the first, but it seems so.

First to do four diabolos low. -> Lucas, a french diabolist was the first to make several rounds with the help of someone to throw the 4th one. The first       one to start alone and to keep it: Guillaume Karpowicz

First to do five diabolos high -> Tony Frebourg

First to do five diabolos low -> Robin Spinelli

First to do a five diabolo pirouette -> Tony Frebourg

First to do vertax -> some Chinese guys. The name "excalibur" was given by Vincent aka "Ptit Vince" (in the guest in Diabology DVD) who make the vertax famous with a lot of new tricks.

First to do 2 diabolos vertax ->no idea, but Roman Müller (Tr'espace) was the first one to do a shuffle with two 'spinning-top diabolo' on stage.

Gear / Useful T-shirt
« on: May 16, 2009, 05:21:06 PM »

a french juggler makes some nice clothes for jugglers and there are some useful diabolo T-Shirts:
a very long list of siteswaps (2, 3 and 4 diabolos) are printed on the front of the T-shirt and it's on the way of the juggler's reading (useful so...)
Priam and myself had helped him to edit the list, because we found it was a good idea.

I'm going to be honest, it's because I like you  ;) :

-For the level and the tricks: nothing to say, perfect (maybe less tricks would be enough).
-I don't like so much the 'old-school' clothes, moreover you're young (It's ok for some cabarets, but even...I'm not sure...)
-I find you don't move enough on stage (the first minute at the same place for example), there is not enough energy
-you don't let time to applause and you don't play enough comedy (you need to find at least 1 joke, you have to show a character. You do it a little, sometimes, but not enough, and not at the beginning).
-I hope, you'll have different music for the different part, because it's not progressiv (the 3 and 4 diabolo part!!! It's hard, there's some danger, no??)
-William won the gold medal at the festival du cirque de demain, because he was very generous and very modest after a big trick (just a break and a smile). Public liked it a lot.
-it was boring during preparation for the double sprinkler (time to make a joke? to move on stage? both?)

So, maybe I'm not right for everything, but guess about the packaging. Take a look at the horrible Pierre Marchand's show, the packaging is perfect and the audience love it!! (every night in the most glorious cabaret in Paris, le Lido, incredible with a such level...)

Hope you wanted some critiscims like that (and if yes, I'm waiting for the next video! If no: sorry about that!)
See you next time (in Europe maybe  ;) )

Tricks / Re: How to start 2 diabolos on loop?
« on: February 16, 2008, 12:56:24 PM »
An other one. Easy but ugly:
put both diabolos in the loop, put them on the ground. Now you can isolate each diabolo with each hand (taking the string) and make them roll on the ground. After that, both are spinning, you just need to release the strings in the good order. It's not nice at all, but it's fast.

Didn't you played this show on the Ypres convention also ?

Not really, it was an older version (I played once, too). I built another structure, wrote a new music, a new story, ... I just kept some tricks. So it's 'almost' a new show, but still a 'not so good' show.

Thanks guys. I'm not very proud of this show, I don't want to play it anymore (I just played it once :) ), that's why I put the video on internet.
I wrote under the video, that It was the first time for this show, I had a lot of stress (Day light, first show of the evening, special 'random' structure...) and the worst part: I forgot ALL my stuff in Paris and I played with stuff, which was not mine (diabolos, too!!! they had 'all around kit' and it changes a lot! and the rest: a not round spinning ball, etc...I've forgiven the music too, which was with luck in my phone...). So maybe you'll understand why I was so bad this evening and why I don't want to play it anymore  ;)
But it still a little fun and original, and I worked a lot on it (music, structure, baby juggling  :D ), so I share it, least...

They do not seem to sell the long axle seperately anymore. However, the kits should appear online within the next day I imagine.

I'm not sure of this, because I built my bearing Finesse almost 2 years ago already. A friend of mine (yoyoist) sell me the long axle. Send them an email, don't wait that the kit appears online.

I don't find the long axle on the website (but I don't speak english good enough to understand the whole page).
It's better to send them an email:
they made 2 types of axles for the spinabolo, one standard and another one longer (so we can put their light kit inside. The same light kit which is used for their yoyos).

You have to see that they are 2 types of washers: washers with rectangular holes (4) and standard washers (2), whiches you can find everywhere. The luck: the washers have got the perfect diameter for the Finesse.
It's very simple to build this diabolo if you've got the long axle, otherwise is impossible.

All you need is here. Don't forget to take the long axe (for light kits).

Congratulations, I already built this kit too (exactly the same!) and I agree, this is the best bearing diabolo: not too noisy, the axe is larger so you can do finger grind (with bearing!) and it lasts more than a spinabolo because of the 4 spacers.
I did'nt share this on the internet before (just some of you knew it), because of my relationship with Mister Babache, but now you did And I don't think Babache will build this kit now, too.
Spintastics sells parts of his materials, so you can buy just what you need and that's right, it's cheap.
