Tricks / Yo-Yo Like Start
« on: May 23, 2008, 11:57:59 PM »
Here is a cool diabolo trick/start based on the offstring yo-yo forward pass start.

1. Hold the (not spinning) diabolo on a half-string with both sticks in your left hand (assuming right handedness- lefties reverse instructions)

2. Do 2 right backwraps

3. Do 1 left un-wrap, you should have a crossed string (as if you have done a sun)

4. Keep winding the string in an anti-clockwise direction, keeping hold of the string in your right hand the whole time, until you have no string left to wind.

5. You can now let go of the (small) loop of string in your right hand, the sticks should be touching the hubs/axle on the right-hand side

6. Either of the below options works well.
 a. Set the diabolo on the floor and pull up with your right hand to send the diabolo rolling down the string, when it nearly reaches the bottom give a sharp tug up, the diabolo will come off the string, catch it.       
 b. As above but start with the diabolo in your left hand in place of the floor.

This can be a little hard to time but is well worth it.
Have fun with this!
