Tricks / Mini-genocide wrap
« on: December 11, 2020, 03:09:04 AM »
Hi all! I was wondering if anyone would kindly help me with mini-genocides. I can do them just fine, but I have no idea how to control what wrap I end with after catching the diabolo. Sometimes I get a left backwrap, sometimes right, and I don't know what exactly to do to get the one that I want.

Gear / Sundia Icy Triple Bearing Diabolo - vibration?
« on: June 04, 2015, 09:07:48 PM »
Hi, I just bought a new Sundia Icy Triple Bearing Diabolo, and when I speed it up real fast, it vibrates a lot. The cups are stable, the diabolo doesn't tilt/turn, but I can feel a vibration through the sticks. I have other bearings, single and triple, and they all have some degree of vibration but not nearly as much as what I'm experiencing with the Icy. Wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences, and if this is a problem or just normal for the Icy?
I've tried tightening the screws, that didn't seem to have any effect.


I have two separate questions:

Can anyone please explain this sequence to me, from 1:15 to 1:21?
I've been trying to figure it out for a while and I just can't understand it (especially the entry part immediately after he first wraps the string around his left leg)

Second question - how do you control how your string wraps around the diabolo when doing continuous minigenocides? My terminology might be off but I'm referring to doing the trick at 2:12 in this video continuously. I try to get right backwraps (string wrapped from the right side on the side closer to you?) but I end up with frontwraps most of the time instead.

Hi, I've been trying to figure out how to do this trick: at 3:39 of this video 2012 公開個人舞台賽第一名 Arata Urawa International Acrobatics Festival
I've also seen Norifumi Kobayashi do this trick, but clockwise. I'd really appreciate it if anyone could explain how to do either variation.

Thanks in advance!

Tricks / How is this done? (Minigenocide stuff?)

I was just wondering how this particular trick is done, in this video:

It's around 0:44, when the string wraps around his right hand/fingers. What wrap does that lead into? Because when he starts the continuous minigenocides (correct me if my terminology is off) after that, he'd have to have the string coming from the left side of the diabolo BEHIND of the string coming from the right side... right? (with the sticks in opposite hands). But every time I try that entry, with the strings wrapping around my fingers, I always end up with the string coming from the left side of the diabolo IN FRONT of the string coming from the right. So either I'm doing it wrong, or there's a way to do those continuous minigenocides with a... left backwrap, is it called? Sorry if that was a confusing explanation, I'm not sure how to say it  =/
