Oh, some very nice stuff in there! I really like the jugglingish, manipulationish how do I need to call it stuff, and I am (if you don't mind ;)) going to see if I can try a few of your stuff out for myself, especially that 1:58 thing of course :D

Gear / Re: Henrys Diabolo Vision a new Diabolo from Henrys
« on: February 16, 2009, 01:46:46 PM »
I always wanted henrys to make a new diabolo, but maybe until now.

I love the thick colors (henrys have the best diabolo colors there are (untill they get dirty)), but now they seem to go over to some finesse style color :(

Also, the weight is probably now too less again. (also finesse style?) Adding weight in the middle does not give much more stability, so I hope these do by themselves.

Anyways, of course I will have to wait how it plays before I can say more.

Thanks, both of you for your replies :)

They sound all great!

But I guess I am going for the diamonds. I can not get them another way than by order, and I have been thinking about them for over a year now, so I will have to buy them someday anyway. Next weekend I am going to a juggling weekend, and I guess a vendor should sell the MB extremes, so I can try those out there, and ill wait with the sundia untill I want to order something there anyway or I wait to EJC09 :) (if I can be there..., its way to early!)

Thanks again for your replies :)

Hello all,
I have got a bit of a problem :p, I want to buy new sticks but I don't know which ones

I have browsed trough a lot of threads here but I can not find the things I want to know.

I have henrys allus now and I am pretty happy with them. But they are getting old, and also I want to have a second pair ready when I create a big knot or so during an act or whatever.
What I really hate is that the tips get dented if you play on concrete. If any replacement could make sure I can play on concrete as much as I want it would be great :p

Things that come to my mind:
The diamond sticks. I don't hear much of them anymore lately but I guess you can still order them? I heard the tips can break off, how much does this happen and does everyone still think that they are as good as people thought in the beginning?

The sundia allu's: Whats the difference? Even the length is the same? Anyone with experiences?

Sundia short carbon: They have some nice colors :D, but being stylish is not important for me now. Do they differ from henrys carbon? (which I hate, both short and long, but long especially). Are they string wasters?
Also the handles seem a bit short on the pictures, but that could be just me too.

At last the Taibolo carbons. With just 3 cm longer than the other sticks, which is maybe just perfect (or maybe not?)
furthermore same questions as about the sundia carbon.

Any sticks I forgot to mention? I don't know much about the mb sticks btw. Do they have anything compareable with the ones named above, at good quality?

Please give me as much information on the sticks and your experiences as you can :)

Just bought 2 taibolos (thanks Marijn), they are great :D

I don't see what's wrong with loop diabolo. It's descriptive, unambiguous, and commonly known.

It's like the whole vertax/excalibur thing. A descriptive name is generally much more useful (and easier to explain to newbies) than some word chosen at random.

Indeed more usefull.. but isnt it boring?
Ah well, its probably waaay too late to give it another name now..

« on: March 11, 2008, 10:29:07 PM »
I got my bearing fly delivered today :D
its great, but I would never do an act with it. I see it as a practice object. You dont ever need to make speed, but it makes a terrible noise, and alot of tricks harder.
Its great for Excallibur, and practicing new tricks. If you already have circusses this will probably be enough, but if you really want to step over, I would take the suns. I never played them, but it just sounds better.

« on: March 11, 2008, 10:25:17 PM »
I have no idea how its called
but today I figured I should not wait when I do a 2d left trapeze (out of a 2d right one) but swing it back immediately to a right trapeze.. I can wait with a right trapeze, but somehow the left trapeze always goes weird and weirder.. but now I do it quick I can do this trick I don't know the name of!

Also I can do a crossed-stick sun 2d (I never tried before utill yesterday.. I was able to do it yesterday XD)

« on: March 11, 2008, 09:24:06 PM »
I think you are doing great, if you started only 5 months ago...
I learned the same in 5 months too.. but I had 10 years of diabolo experience (but I did not know much of these cool tricks) before!
So if you compare it with that, you atleast do better than I do.

But I agree with the others, you have to figure out yourself if you are doing fine or not.

hmmm cooler name, the circular vortex of death and destruction.....with a diabolo spinning on it ;D
Circular vortex sounds nice, but its too long

I find just 'Vortex' sound great too! and it has a nice grammatical connection with Vertax too :p

Tricks / Loop diabolo discussion
« on: March 08, 2008, 10:23:01 PM »
Hello everyone!

Today I tried loop diaboloing again (I tried once before, but I never searched the internet on information about it). When I am browsing to the little amount of tutorials and video's, I have the feeling I am almost able to do every trick there is (1D), and that in only 1 day!
I still have to start with trying vertax and 2D, but maybe ill do that tomorrow.

However, I guess there is lots and lots of information still to be found! And there is not even an active topic about loop diaboloing!
Thats why I want to discuss this subject with you.

The questions that have to be answered:

What kind of tricks can be copied from stick diaboloing?

What new tricks can we think of?

Should loop diaboloing get a cooler name?

What benefits are there for using a shorter string and what for longer ones?

Trick listing:

Accelleration, let the diabolo make circles about both hands

Trapeze left or right landing on both strings. Hold the string with your thumb on the side you want to make a trapeze.
Trapeze left or right landing on a single string. Same as above.

Sun? Release one hand and continue making circles

Suicide/Duicide? Start with preforming a sun and release other hand too when the diabolo is going up, catch with one or 2 hands

Orbit around the left or right hand upwards, throw the diabolo inside the loop to the upper string in the direction of one of the hands and let it circle around it
Orbit around the left or right hand downwards, swing the diabolo to the hand, let it circle around it and then drop from the upper string to the lower one
with both of these tricks you can make a figure of 8 if you change the hand the diabolo orbits around every circle.

Orbit around the leg, place your leg above the diabolo and under the upper string, and start accelleration.  Hands can be removed if your string is short enough
Orbit around the neck, same as around the leg but than with your neck

Wrap, just the same as normal diaboloing

Double loop, drop the diabolo when its under the topstring in a lefthand wrap onto the lower string. than put both loops together as one

Whip catch, the same as normal diaboloing but now you hold the string in your hands.

If you have anything you can do yourself to add, please write it out and post it!
What were your experiences with loop diabolo? What do you think about listing these tricks? Can you answer the questions I asked? Any idea's?

Everything is welcome :)

1. How many years have you diaboloed for?
10 now.

2. What or who got you started?
Well, 10 years ago me and my family were camping on some island were diabolo was a big rage that year. My mother got inspired and bought one too, and I played with it aswell. (I guess you could have hardly called it diaboling when some 5 years old boy plays with one but ok this was the start.) We came there every summer 4 years long, and I allways played with it. When I got 11 or 12 I got a henry's circus myself, and I kept playing the diabolo every summer.
Now this year (thats already half a year ago) I started on searching on the internet for more tricks (I was able to do all tricks I knew.) Soon I found alot of information, more tricks I could all easily learn because of my 10 years diabolo experience etc. etc.

3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general?
Exchanging tricks and tips

4. How many hours a day do you diabolo on average?
well it was a hour a day for a while, now its atleast once or twice a week, but I do more juggling and devilsticking and rebound juggling and other things now.

5. Do you ever perform with the diabolo?

6. Do you juggle other props? If so: balls, clubs, rings, cigar boxes, devil sticks... ?
Balls, devil stick, bouncing balls

7. What are your favourite diabolos, sticks, and string?
I like henrys circus above the finesse, allu's en henry's string are great too. But maybe it changes soon, I hope I get my sundia fly delivered this week

8. Do you like working with 1, 2, or 3 diabolos the best?
Well I would really like to learn more with 2 diabolo's, but even most suns are too hard now. so I guess that will be 1 diabolo.

9. What is your favourite diabolo trick that you can do?
I guess thats the genocide..

10. What is the most amazing diabolo trick you've ever seen done?
I don't know. I have only once been to a jugle convention, and for the rest I have not met any other good diaboloers.. I dont know what the most amazing trick was.

11. What tricks are driving you nuts right now (what are you working on)?
I really working on improving my genocide (still working on stopovers, started only last week with practicing this.

12. What other diaboloists have inspired you?[/url]
None special, but I remember some vid of some guy who did not use handsticks but only string, I really want to try that someday, and I have the diabology dvd here, witch is a very inspirating dvd.
