Tricks / 3 Diabolos Low: Throw Start, Anyone?
« on: November 13, 2004, 10:31:13 AM »
Throw-ins are old school, wrap starts are the way forward. Check the vid of Guy Heathcote doing the throw start on Barnsey's site. But i tell ya, wraps are where its at. Theres a reason people use it.

Tricks / three high to three low

y'not wrong. Yeah thats exactly the trick. seems like a bit of a hard way to go, surely a lowering aerial would be easier, doesnt have to be gradual, Tony does it in a couple of throws.

Yeh that 3 diab suicide is crazy (you may even notice it as the best trick i've seen)

I know this may be a pointless post, but....
To anyone that cant be bothered to work with siteswaps or work out what séan meant...

-Do 3 high
-instead of throwing 1 high (like a regular 3 high) you throw it real low like a slow 2 diab shuffle
-throw next one like a 3 shuffle
-do 3 low

tada. hope that helped anyone that was confused.

Tricks / 2 diabolo mini-genocide

I thought the question asked what the best u had ever done yourself. I quickly changed it to 3 diab suicide. The 2 diab mini geno i am talking about is a trick i created a little while back but cant do it much becuase of a  grinding problem that messes up one of the diabolos, maybe some new-skool sticks would be better instead of my bits of dowel. I decided not to keep it till Vegas, i'm gunna post a video of some new stuff soon, 1 and 2 stuff (maybe even 3!)* It will include silly stuff, better stuff, stupid stuff, 2diabminigeno (ooooooh) I havnt watched that vid you posted cos i'm still downloading the chinese birds. I'll post that vid soon though.

*probly not 3
