do you think it is possible to do 3d with different weighted diabolos?
maybe someone who mastered 3d could try because if it is just impossible im just wasting my time trying!
thank you very!

Yes it's possible, you will however be wasting an astonishing amount of time if you bother trying!

and: after unwrapping the third one, when should i start with the shuffle motion, when the first, the second or the third diab is touching the string?
thank you more! :D

The second, or perhaps the first, but not the third :?

That's looking really nice! :D
Your pattern is sync so you should see improvement by using your right hand more and your left hand less.

Wow! I had no idea I had TOTW until someone asked me to demonstrate it at Nottingham convention on Saturday and all I could offer was a blank stare :roll:
Anyway, the entrance is a feed on the darkside, the exit is Johns(Gherkin) many thanks! and Mynci:

Hi Josh,

Just watched the video, familiar problem, we've all been there.

You need to concentrate on bringing your left hand down quickly after each throw. This will help the diabolos go more vertically and keep the space between them.

Keep at it!

You can also try to put 2 lbw's on one diabolo, and double vortex it out. Good luck!

I've been trying these recently and triples too, It's not too difficult so long as you're quite smooth.

I find it easier if I whip up and to the right then down and to the left rather than trying to go straight up and down. I use the small jerky whip by the way.

General / Diabolo Styles & "What is your style"?

I think us Brits have a different style, it tends to be quite cheesy.

You can thank Donald for that :wink:

You're right tho' we do like tricks that are amusing as well as impressive.

Tricks / Standard 2 diabolo sun
« on: September 02, 2005, 11:38:49 AM »
As has been said, the wrap comes because the second diabolo is not passing through your arms and is instead falling short.

As far as the right hand goes you may well be moving it to the right too soon at the end of the sun. Relax, just let the 2 diabolos fall before you try to recontrol the shuffle.
As well as thinking about the right hand (where the problem appears to be), you need to think about the left hand too.

You should select a diabolo to start the sun, drive it under the other with the right stick, then, this is the important bit, give it a relatively long, controlled pull, upward and inward with the left stick. This will lift the first diabolo a little higher than swinging alone and the force will pass onto the second diabolo which will then be more likely to go where you want it to.

I hope that made sense

The thing I like most about this trick is that it's obviously not going to work, but if you ignore that and just chuck it, it does! :D

Very well done mate!

Does anyone have any advice on how to actually DO a sun, or are you just not telling :wink:

I imagine (not that I'm gonna try it) it would be like mini columns or more like ping pong.  As the one flies over the top, pop the other one up just a lil and let the other travel under it.  I can't do mini columns, so this is beyond me.  Though others are much more versed in it.  Norbi did a whole video full of columns.


It's actually more like "over the leg" and not much more difficult, just drive one diabolo harder than the other.

Good to see you've got it down to a state of zen like composure 8) since I witnessed it last at Magna.

Annyway I got another Idea for an exit, it involves one of those freaky swinging fans that JGherkin does in his fan-video.

Thanks Mr Pink it works a treat :D and it's actually much easier than the swinging fan!
