Simply watch and listen.
Kind of calm.

Very, indeed.

Chinese acceleration is more efficient, because the diabolo is speeded up during the move up, and the move down.

The same with the wrapped orbit, ain't it?
That's why you wrap it.  :wink:

I myself think Chinese whips are pretty impressing to lots of undiaboloing people, but since I use the orbit my string don't breaks that often inside the sticks (henrys fiber)...on the other hand the orbits seemed to roughen the string (hhhmmm "roughen"...know what I mean??) where it's wrapped around the diab. But I guess that's caused by technique. The same reason for having the diab running straight up to the stick while acclerating.
Guess that happens when "both" strings overlay each other or at least touch each other pretty hard while the diab is wrapped.

You can prevent major accidents and material injuries by listening to your movement.
You must know what i mean. Do you?

Listen to the sounds of rubbing and correct slightly with your hands.

Doin' the left outside 2d sun for about a couple of weeks now...yesterday I rather mechanically (accidentally so to say) did it the inside way and it worked the first time. Seems to be much easier too, because you don't have enough space to do artistical string moves to catch the diabs. You simply "catch" them and go on...

Also trying the sprinkler but don't get out of it without a mess.  :(

when I was quite young on the diabolo (well actually three or four months ago) and still whipped to get spin (without a wrap or such experiments) I occasionally got my fingers trapped in the string and messed it all up...
one day I decided to turn the annoyance into something useful and invented a trick I haven't seen from anybody else yet...I haven't seen that much tricks though...well I have seen DIABOLOGY...but the trick:

start a trapeze to the right - grab the right string with a finger or two (actually you end up with "both strings" caught) - let the diab swing around the stick - let go of the right stick - now you got the diab in a sling on the string and the right stick loose - *pause* - swing the diab same way back - it should hit the stick - stick follows the diabs path - catch the stick with your right - do a clockwise sun in front of the sticks

Is there anything better than a pause?!

Very smooth track with a lots of edges to be used for all kinds of easy going tricks...

got it with two jazzes today (no circus around)
mayhap you can learn it with the unlike brothers but it is easier with twins at least you got me!!

I also enlarged the string about 10 cm to embed them out rather fine. thank you.

thought so...but on the other hand...can't help...feel a strange motivation approaching now...could borrow one indeed but...what a feeling it must be to end up with all those differences smoothly encircling each other...oh ENCOURAGED me...whaaaahhhhh...
