Community & Events / diaboloists in Vancouver?
« on: February 05, 2007, 01:40:55 AM »
Hey everyone,

Just wondering if there are any other diaboloists in Vancouver, Canada.  I'd love to find some to practice with.  Thanks,

Julian

Tricks / Re: Starting and correcting 2 diabolos

You might want to consider learning some floor starts.


When I was learning two diabolos all I used was the rocket start.  It gets both diabolos spinning so you can practice shuffling.  The rocket start also launches the diabolos in correct alignment so they don't need to be corrected right away (this is plus when you're learning).  I found it the best way to learn two, but everyone to their own.  There's an animation of it on this page.  http://www.diabolotricks.com/2Starts.htm

Gear / Henrys Yellow String Emergency
« on: May 06, 2005, 02:38:51 AM »
So I tried the soap trick and my string shrunk quite a bit.  I started diaboloing and it is noticeably shorter.  This is the Babache yellow, does this happen to the Henrys yellow?  It looks like it shrunk up and got fatter.  It's thicker now than the stuff on the spool.  Weird.

Thanks, I'll give the soap a try.  This is my first time using Babache yellow so maybe I just have to get used to it.  It's just annoying that I can't wrap start or hover to start two because it's so slippery.

Gear / Henrys Yellow String Emergency

So my roll of yellow Babache arrived today.  I immediately started using it and found that it's way too slippery.  If I try to do a wrap start the diabolo just slides down and hits the other one.  I have never used such slick string, is there a way to break it in faster?  The yellow looks nice though, way nicer than dirty white string.

So you think it's almost the same as Henry's yellow, eh.  Have you tried the Babache yellow?  Do you know whether the diameter is the same as Henry's yellow?  That hot pink looks attractive too!   Hmm, which one to order.

Where did you finally get the Henry's yellow, Sean?  I desperately need string.

Martijn, the website is http://www.vicjugfest.com  

The highlights video tends to go on a bit long, but hey I didn't make it so I shouldn't comment.

The festival was excellent!  Unfortunately Sean couldn't make it at the last minute due to a family emergency.  We missed him very much, but still managed to pull of a great weekend.  Some highlights from the public show were Lana Bolin (IJA silver medalist), Maksim Komaro (amazing!), and an awesome diabolo routine from The Vanillatown Vaudevillians.  

In order to download those videos, first install Bitorrent.  Then open the .torrent files in Bitorrent (File -> Open torrent file).  They should now begin downloading.  Good luck.

Gear / Batteries for light kits

Hey thanks a lot milka!  That's way cheaper.  So, the LR44 are the ones I need for the evolution 4 light kits?

Gear / Batteries for light kits
« on: March 17, 2005, 04:52:07 AM »
Does anyone know of a cheap place to buy the little batteries for the Finesse light kits?  I don't want to pay $5 a battery; that's $20 per diabolo.  Also, the batteries have "GPA 76" on them, but I couldn't find an exact match at the store.  I found ones with 76 and other letters printed on them, but not GPA 76.  What batteries do people use?  Thanks!

I think I'm having the same problems as Martijn.   When I throw the frontwrapped diabolo, the other one doesn't come up and circle it.

I had a good laugh about Quebec too Sean.  Maybe we should tip them off that it's actually Canada, not Quebec.

That's great but there's no information about any of their products on the site.  What's the point?

Let me know if you do make it to Canada and if you are coming to the west coast.  If you end up in Victoria, you'll have to come to the university juggling club!
