General / Re: What move caused your addiction?

Many years ago I went to a happy clappy activities camp with my school in year 5. In between the activites there was spare time to do whatever you wanted so me and a friend found this old diabolo in this barrel and used it every day. I only learnt to throw it extremly high and catch it but it was enough to get me hooked, even though I didn't use another diabolo for about 2 years.

Many times I have lobbed the diabolo very very high in the air and had it land on my face. I have white scars all down my arm from doing arm orbits tricks. Also I invented my own trick for maximum destruction in a crowded area. Get the diabolo spinning very fast then right hand loop it once. Throw it all up in the air and the sticks spin random directions in the air around the diabolo...deadly. For some reason the skin on my hands has gone realy crusty, most likely due to the constant use of my aluminium sticks.

I have done diabolo in my physics lesson one time when we had this bad substitute teacher who couldn't control the class and I have also done it alot on the train while traveling to oddbals in camden. I do it alot at my school and one time i did a 'on the spot' performance to my class.

Yeah, Like Chiok said, push the stick slightly to help it circle around twice. Also for triple or ,if your string is long enough, quadruple Chinese suicides it helps to move your right hand up and down very slightly. Move your right hand up very slightly when the stick is directly above the diabolo and then move your right hand down slightly to give the stick move swing around the diabolo so it continues.

'Henrys' green diabolo string is the best I have used. I would avoid 'Firetoys' diabolo string because I found that it can be too thick and 'rolls up' after about 7 power orbits. It also seems to become very fluffy.

Gear / Light Kits for White Finesse G2
« on: December 23, 2006, 06:13:23 PM »
Firetoys claims that a light kit for a white Finesse G2 diabolo will not illuminate the whole diabolo because it is opaque. Does anyone have any pictures or videos they can post below to show me how they look different from normal light kits and if they look any good. thx.

Check out this video I filmed and edited about the Diabolo craze me and my friend started at our school. Ignore the nose bit, its an 'in-joke'.
