Gear / Which bearing Diabolo for me?
« on: October 27, 2011, 02:51:27 PM »
I currently have two taibolo glary diabolos and I read the thread on bearing vs fixed and decided to upgrade to a bearing diabolo of some sort.
Being nearly sixteen, I don't have an enormous amount of money and was wondering which of the options below would be best for me.

1. Ship over a couple of taibolo bearing kits for cost of $50/£31 + £? shipping to UK extra cost.
2. Get two sundia shining diabolos for about £88 from
3. Get two sundia suns for about £60 from oddballs.

Any advice appreciated. :)

Videos / my first Diabolo video

This is my first video.
I'm not very dedicated or skilled, so creating a video was for my benfit rather than anyone else's.
Please feel free to say how amazingly talented I am.  ;)
I can now do tomicide, and am working on genocide 2d high, 2D sun and Sprinkler.

General / Juggers, diaboloists and other circus skills
« on: August 29, 2011, 06:52:34 PM »
I was just thinking about how there are a lot of diaboloists who juggle (and vice versa) but not very many who do say baton twirling, poi or other circus skills.

I searched the forum and only found one or two poi related topics, and none for staff twirling. There were a few yoyo related forums, but i think the amount of juggling there dwarfs all of them.

I dont think this is a bad thing but i was wondering why juggling and diabolo were so closely related.

What are your thoughts?

General / New method of combo notation

This is just an idea I had, and  I don't have enough knowledge of tricks to make it complete, but I think if some people took it and edited it themselves adding their own ideas/ things I have missed it could pretty much encompass every diabolo trick.
Half the trouble is finding names for the tricks.
Some things don't work as well as others (e.g suns)

Green tricks can be continued forever in that position but red tricks can't.
Tricks in italics can be done both on the left and right side. Blue arrow tricks have a suicide version or are suicides. Bold tricks have an alternative in the alternatives box.

Please could people update this version using whatever image editors you have (I used publisher  :-| ) and add their own tricks. Feel free to disagree with anything I've already put down.

Also could be done with 2d or 3d?;sa=item;id=522
