It really is very noticeable the difference in video quality between youtube and vimeo. All my youtube vids are going to be transferred for sure, take a look at this vimeo download and you can see is so much better than the youtube compression rate.

Community & Events / Judging Diabolo Freestyles
« on: March 12, 2008, 09:47:09 AM »

Feels kinda weird to be the guinea pig for the first to try diabolo freestyles at a yoyo contest. Been working with Stu from the Spintastics Diabolo Team last couple weeks to develop something that would make sense and be a fair way of judging diabolo without trying to turn it into another yoyo style based freestyle(like that would be bad though right!?).

The Diabolo judges for MoYo States:

Michael Hagerstrom-Circus Day
Josh Parker-Independent
Stu Stupendous Branoff-Spintastics Diabolo Team
Doc Pop-Independent

Here are the rules which will be updated to soon enough........


- Each contestant shall have 3-minutes to perform a
freestyle routine to his or her choice of music.

- Any style and/or number of diabolo(s) may be used
(bearing or fixed axle).

- Any style of diabolo play may be performed in the
freestyle (loop/single string diabolo, 1 diabolo, 2
diabolo, 3 diabolo, etc.).

- Only diabolos pre-positioned on stage before the
start are to be used, and diabolos that leave the
stage during the freestyle may not be returned during
the 3 minutes.

- All music must be considered G rated (appropriate
for all audiences). Contestants with inappropriate
music (obscenities, ethnic or sexual slurs, etc.) may
be disqualified. If you are unsure about your music, a
judge will be available to listen to your music and
make sure it is appropriate.


Scoring will be based on a criteria system with judges
being asked to focus on specific elements of a
contestant's freestyle. After a freestyle is over,
the judge will record that contestant's score on their
criteria score card. Only the overall freestyle
scores may be adjusted by the judges to allow for a
more fair comparison between freestyles. All three
criteria scores will be worth the same amount in the
overall freestyle score. When all judges have their
final scores, all scores will be normalized to
represent a portion of 100 points.

#1 Proficiency - competency, tricks or elements
completed/missed, and overall command of the diabolo.
Judges will score positive points and negative points.
Positive points are given for completed tricks or
elements. Negative points are given for missed tricks
or elements and loss of diabolo control. Negative
points will not be given to contestants who change
diabolo styles with control. Such as changing from 1
diabolo play to 2 diabolo play with out losing
control of the diabolo.

#2 Difficulty - originality, creativity, diversity,
and newness of tricks and routine. Judges will score
positive points only. Points will be given for each
completed trick or element. With more points being
given for more difficult and creative tricks or
elements. No points will be given for a trick or
element that is repeated despite its difficulty or

#3 Presentation - smoothness, style, flow and stage
presence. Judges will be watching each freestyle for
smoothness, style, flow and stage presence. A score
will be given to each contestant based on the judge's
opinion of their overall presentation.

Judges will be split up evenly to judge either the
Proficiency or the Difficulty of a freestyle. All
judges will record a Presentation score for each
freestyle. For example: If there are 4 judges, 2
will judge Proficiency, 2 will judge Difficulty, and
all 4 will judge Presentation.
