Performing / Re: What would be good for a talent show?
« on: March 18, 2012, 04:57:47 AM »
How do u mean ur not sure if ur doing it right n a video of what u got so far would help
I have read somewhere on here that high throws and suns are good crowd pleasers

When I say I'm not sure if doing it right is the fact that whenever I try to throw it (besides a cradle) it always seems to trail off forward, which makes me have to go after it, and makes me look really bad.

Include only tricks that you are 100% safe in. The philosophy of a good performer is "Make easy tricks look hard, and make hard tricks look easy". Any trick like high throws, suns, elevator, around the leg/arm and such are good crowdpleasers. Suicides work great too if you're safe in them. If you can do 2d sprinklers, they are going to amaze them. As long as you include safe, spinny and flashy tricks you'll do fine. No need to include wild 3d siteswaps, since Mugglers won't notice how hard they are. Try to show your tricks to family members or friends and ask them if they look nice.

Build up your performance so that you start with easy and mild tricks, then go bigger and more flashy during your performance. That's a pretty safe way to do this.

I kinda...can't do 2D. I've been at this for years, and I think I've only just scratched the basics of 1d.

My school is having a talent show, and I'm trying to plan out my act, but I'm not sure which tricks I should do. I'm not particularly good, I haven't gotten much practice in lately and I'm not even sure if I'm doing it right. Someone please reply soon.

Purincake if you are looking for a cheap beginners diabolo that is really good I would suggest a Henrys Vision diabolo. They are a bit lighter than usual, but I think they are pretty good for beginners. Dont get a renegade if you are a beginner.

Ahh, thank you, but i think that the vision would be to light for me, since due to an error on my part, my first diabolo was a finesse G3, and now i have a G4. But thank you, i appreciate the help from all of you.

...Well, all i really wanted to know was are they worth really 37+$ hard earned dollars for a beginning juggler with not even a year's worth experience. Or should i wait a while till i can actually do some of the intermediate/difficult tricks?

Well, actually, i can say that i got an answer, seeing from everyone's experiences with them, i'd say i might have to wait.

History/collecting/memorabilia
They are pretty rare. I don't think they have been made in years.

Most diaboloists these days would find the axle strange

I was wondering...

We've all heard of the Renegade diabolo's, right? Well, i was wondering, is there any reason to get them? I heard that they're good for two diabolo stuff, and then there's that little finger spinning thing, but is that it? Is there any other real reason to buy them?

If any of you have something similar, please tell. I could not hit 60 mph in baseball last year, now I can hit 90 mph in a batting cage. It's even more incredible because I didn't do baseball at all from when I started juggling and diabolo, to when I could hit 90 mph.

Lucky, last time i went to a batting cage, the ball shot down, bounced back up in the most uncomfortible spot you can think of!! (i wish i wore a cup)

But i see your point, i've been a bit stronger from the hours i spend practicing. and my coorination has slightly improved as well.

« on: September 19, 2010, 02:40:26 AM »
you do have a point with the wraps part, but with the hubs spaced so far apart, getting into vertax will be virtually impossible.

yes, i know. Well, if anyone noticed, i kinda took the hubs off the list as well as the chinese yo-yo, acrylic handsticks, and so on. Is there something that i should get that i haven't put on the list?

P.S. Which type of handsticks should i get for the long run (just in case something happens to my aluminum ones)? Fiberglass, Carbon, Xtreme, or Energy? I hear good things from all of them (for the most part) and i don't know which ones to get.

P.S.S. Forget that, i found something good.

What are you going to use it for? (:

And I think that evo 7 by itself is great. Don't see why you would want the evo 1 with it.

I'm obviously gonna hotdog the fact that it spins like a top. Everyone i know is mesmerized by my plain Finesse G3, so imagine the 'ooohs' and 'ahhhs' if i get one that spin likle a top and can do most of the tricks. Besides, aren't some of them unbalanced to make it spin sideways better? I figure with that, it can help me with the vertax's.

And with the Evo 1, not only can it do the whole finger grind thing, with a longer axle, i'm sure wraps would be easier with more space, especially when breaking in new string. with it not tagling up during wraps as much, i'm sure it too could help me with the vertax.

If I were you I would wish for another red G4, freestyle kits and possibly weights for both of them as my first priority.

I would forget about the spinabolo, acrillic handsticks, monobolo, chinese yo-yo (waste of money if you arent going to use it alot?) and Evo 1.

The fly is a good diabolo but I recommend getting a bit more known with your finesse before starting to explore that area too much.

You might want to get yourself a roll of henry's string so you are sure to have plenty of string.

-Tipper

Why the Evo 1 and the Monobolo? and the roll of string is definitely being put up!

Would this be for yourself or for the club? Either way I would say that depending on the number of people you expect to have you should maybe get more diabolos (vision diabolos are a nice start). If you are looking for something yourself you should get good quality diabolos that will last you a while like the circus, finesse, sundia. Club members typically dont need the top notch gear if they are beginners, just something to start them off with and let them use during meetings. Let them worry about getting their own high quality gear if they like juggling/diabolo enough. I have been diaboloing and doing club things for about 6 years, you will build up a collection of gear, just takes a while if you are poor like me :P

Nope, it's all for me, i haven't even started the club yet (since the year just started). Well, i'm kinda poor, but i get enough money to buy a new diabolo atleast every 2&1/2-3 months.

not the acrylic sticks. stuff made by jugglingstore isn't always that good. u don't need evo 1 and 7, they do the same thing.

Oh, really. I just picked them 'cause they looked cool. And so they do the same thing, then i'll just get the first one. I'll edit immeadiatly...tomorrow...

Ok, well, i decided to take diabolo juggling seriously. I've been going as far as to try to start a juggling club in the school. As such, i've been putting together a wishlist of several thing i might wanna get, but, are there somethings i should take out due to price/unimportance, or any recommendations that might wanna add?

Here's the list:

1 Black Sundia Fly (long axle):http://diabologalaxy.com/product_info.php?cPath=9&products_id=16
1 Finesse G4 (White): http://www.jugglingstore.com/store/detail.aspx?ID=176
A blue Monobolo: http://monobolos.com/product_info.php?cPath=1&products_id=17
Super Grind Carbon Handsticks: http://www.oddballs.co.uk/super-grind-carbon-diabolo-hand-stick-p-2959.html (Thanks to rochdalejak, for making the post in which i saw these handsticks)
Finesse Evolution Kit 1 (Wider axle): http://www.jugglingstore.com/store/detail.aspx?ID=462
Finesse Evolution Kit 3 (6g/10g weights): http://www.jugglingstore.com/store/detail.aspx?ID=461
Mister Babache 4-Diabolo holding bag: http://www.jugglingstore.com/store/detail.aspx?ID=278
Roll of Henry's string (orange, changed my mind): http://www.henrys-online.de/Webshop/contents/en-us/d45.html (Thanx to Tipper)
Diabology Dvd: http://www.jugglingstore.com/store/detail.aspx?ID=445

Here's what i have so far:

Henry's Aluminum handsticks
Five Yellow Replacement Strings
1 green G3 Finesse diabolo
1 red G4 Finesse diabolo
2 wooden sticks (i don't use them, they came with the diabolo's)

I go to juggling store alot.

I heard that the G4 is a 11g heavier and and it looks a tiny bit taller. If one were to get the 1st and 3rd evolution kits, would it make up the difference on a G3 diabolo?

« on: September 15, 2010, 10:46:47 PM »
I got two:

2 Finesse's, 1 green (which was my first one) and 1 red (just got it)

I'm pretty sure that the green one is G3 and the red on is G4, but that won't stop me!!!

You might wanna add what it is you're having problems with, otherwise we can't really help you out. xD

Oh, right. Well, currently, i'm wanting to learn to excalibur, infinite suicide, genocide and the monorail. Like some people (from what i've seen here), those tricks are the ones i have the most trouble with. Well...not so much the monorail as i just gotta learn on exiting the backside without using the cats cradle.

But the other stuff, i have a few problems with, especially the excalibur. I've almost gotten it before, but the diabolo just never goes upright. I've seen tutorials on it, but i can't seem to get it right. And with the infinite suicide, the stick just goes to fast for me to get the timing right.

The genocide, however, my aim is just off, but i've gotten lucky a few times.

do you have any friend, who also juggles diabolo? maybe he can help

btw what tricks are learning?

Friends who diabolo? I wish. The only person i know whose ever even gotten spinning (besides myself) was one of my teachers at school. I have a friend online who used to play, but they're overseas, so that doesn't really help.
