Tricks / 2 sided diabolo siteswap notation
« on: April 19, 2006, 08:01:27 PM »
mod edit - first 5 posts were cut from the 3 diabolo cascade thread -Sean

Balljuggling siteswaps applied on diabolo.

(if im reinventing the wheel pleas tell me)

When i read this tread about the 3-diabolo cascade an idea poped up into my head.
The cascade is a balljuggling siteswap known as 3.
We have two handsticks and we can trow the diabolo/diabolos  from close to either stick and catch close to eiter stick. So in theory at least we shold be able to do some balljuggling siteswaps with diabolos.

0 Doing nothing without diabolos
1 would be swiftly passing the diabolo from one stick to the other on the string.
2 just holding the diabolo close to one stick for 2 beats. a bit of a problem if you shuld throw from the other stick...
3 is a throw from one stick to the other lasting 3 beats,
4 is a throw to the same stick lasting 4 beats,
5 is a throw from one stick to the oter lasting 5 beats.
And so on...

One and two ball siteswaps shuld be quiet possible to do this way.
The usual 2D high pattern would probably be described as 31 thinking this way.
501 is a cool 2ball siteswap that shuld be doable with diabolos as well.
300 is a simpe 1 ballsiteswap (one out of the cascade) that can be done like this.

The Nordic Juggling Convention 2006 will be arranged in Jönköping  Sweden on May 25 - May 28 2006
I know there is a lot going on down in europe at the same time but it would be great if some other diabolists came to this one, and see the lovely lakes, a moose while you are about it...
The convention is located in a nice town in southern sweden and the people who aranges it are also nice, as well as most of the participants.
There will also be people repesenting the swedish jugglingparty there trying to raise some votes for the uppcomming election...
There is a website for the convention at

Gear / titanium handsticks ?
« on: January 31, 2006, 02:46:03 PM »
I would love to have a pair of handsticks made out of titanium.
So i consider building myself a pair sometime in the future.
Not only would they look cool they wuld be strong as steel and ligth as aliminium.
I was wondering if anyone here have done this before. Or thougth about it and rejected the idea for some reason. And third i've heard that titanium is quiet expensive and would like to know if annyone has a clue how much the material would cost. ( if ill have to pay 1000$ for apair ill have to wait a while   :( )

Tricks / Ideas on fans...
« on: May 16, 2005, 06:48:27 PM »
I started to work on fans a little while ago.  
I was just wondering if there has been anny atempts to do a fan while in the sprinkler/hyperloop possition? Or even a "doublewrapped s-fan".
It seems to me that this would be possible in theory and amazing in real life...
maybe trick of the week some day eh???

Tricks / I just learnt to... (2005)
« on: May 04, 2005, 08:51:39 PM »
When you lern a new trick you want to show it and tell others that you have achived someting new. This is a thread where you can tell about your latest achievements, doesnt matter if its the stringclimb or a solid four diabolo shuffle you just lernt, tell us about it! And let others be inspired by what you do!

Edit by Sean, November 12 2009:
This is one of many "I just learnt to..." threads which was started by mrbpink back in 2005 (in fact you are now reading the original!). Its intended purpose was as follows:

When you learn a new trick you want to show it and tell others that you have achieved something new. This is a thread where you can tell about your latest achievements, doesn't matter if its the string climb or a solid four diabolo shuffle you just learnt, tell us about it! And let others be inspired by what you do!
The original "I just learnt to..." thread wasn the most popular thread on the forum. Long forum threads induce an extra burden on the forum database server, so to keep things running smoothly around here I have started archiving these threads by year.

If you really feel like reading them all, there are about 1000 posts per year (2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005). There may also be more years of threads since this message was written. Have a look around. Otherwise, just post in the most recent version of this thread. It should be near the top of the Tricks section. It almost always is.
