Gear / Diabig / Yoho Jumbo
« on: September 23, 2005, 10:22:48 PM »
Sorry if this has been discussed, I did search this one.  Where can I get ahold of some Diabig?  I have seen pictures of them with what appear to be transluscent shells, like what is on the diabglo. (Incidentally, does anyone know upon what kind of diabolo the diabglos are built?)  Is the diabig the same as the yoho jumbo?  I want the fixed axle and in the cool colors!

Gear / Taking diabolos apart
« on: May 08, 2005, 06:15:54 PM »
I've had my circuses for about 6-7 years and never taken them apart, nor have they become loose.  I want to take the cups off to clean them, but how will they stay tight once I replace everything?  For instance, I have a spinabolo, but it comes loose a lot and I don't want that to be the case with my henry's.

Tricks / Regular Umbrella

Would someone please be kind enough to do a tutorial or an explanation of this trick?  Not the excalibur version, just the one where it is going left to right in front of your face and over the sticks.  I've seen a few pictures and videos of it, but no good description of how to do it.  By the way, how do you know when you're ready to learn excalibur?  That looks wild!  Thank you! :)

Tricks / Diabology and speed ups?

Hi, I have been trying to diabolo for quite some time now, but I've been limited in my learning resources.  I'm very glad to have found this site.  Thanks Sean and everyone who contributes.  I'm sure these questions have been asked, and I apologize.  First, any word on when the Diabology DVD will be released in NTSC format, and will it have English translations?  Second, until recently, my speed up method was just to do a right wrap and pull.  I've been trying the wrapped orbit method and the chinese whip thrusts.  Should I be getting a faster spin with those two than with the right wrap pulls?  It seems to be about the same.  I see in the videos, people are doing the whip thrusts very quickly and about 3 or 4 thrusts...  How the heck do they get so much spin out of it?  I am using poor string, but I'm afraid that that is actually helping me (more surface area).  Well, thank you all.
