General / Be grateful for what we have here.

Imagine if there was a community where Ronaldhino helped high school soccer players with footskills; or a club where Lebron James helped ten-year-olds with their foul shots.
        This is truly an amazing community we have in D.Ca. Someone told me in passing about a diabolo-based website that he had found while surfing. I decided I'd check it out and decided to join the forums.
        I was surprised when I was searching for interesting articles and posts and I found posts by a few familiar diabolo names. As I looked into it more, I found some of the best diaboloists out there helping people just giving it a try with difficult tricks and concepts.
       I just recently started diaboloing semi-seriously and the wealth of knowledge and astounding videos found on these forums is amazing. Here's to seeing this community grow and advance for years to come.

Gear / Homemade handsticks tutorial...?
« on: August 30, 2008, 03:42:18 PM »
Hey everyone! I just recently made my own set of handsticks. I'm sure they're not as good as the expensive ones or whatever, but they cost me half an hour's time and probably less than $1.50 each. They hide the knot well and they have a nice grip. The nice part about them is they can be modified to be heavier or lighter to match your diabolo. I made a pair for my old spinabolo and a pair for my new, shiny Finesses because the spinabolo pair actually weighed a little more than the Finesse itself.

Basically, I was just wondering if anyone would be interested in a tutorial (typed or video) because I don't want to make it and have no one use it.

This is mostly for newer diaboloists, but I really like the sticks and I love being able to modify them to exactly fit my style. Btw, you can make them look cool too. One pair of mine are Uv reactive and I'm working on a lighted pair.

Just wondering.

I'm New / Odd cradle: can't figure it out (lamecide)
« on: August 26, 2008, 05:23:44 PM »
This might make me seem kind of nooby, I don't know, but there's a slick cradle where the strings are held and the sticks are parallel over the diabolo. I've seen it in many a video, such as the beginning of Pranay's JIF III and I can't figure it out and I can't look up a tutorial because I don't know what it is called. I have googled and searched diabolo.ca and diabolotricks.com and I can't find it anywhere. I was just wondering if anyone could help me out. Thanks.
