so i was wondering if anyone thats uses the first method of corrections can tell me if they find it easy to correct tilt or not?

I use the method your on about and i find tilt quite easy to correct, if the cup towards you is tilted up then i find that harder to correct than if it was tilting down if it make sense.

i nailed the shuffle in about 5-6 days. (that was a week ago :P). The shuffle itself isnt hard, in my opinion, but its the correction thats driving me nuts  :-[

I had the same thing ives been doing 2d for about 2 months now and finally have nailed the corrections and starting to learn some tricks i can do a sprinkler and double sprinkler, grind , suicides and this wierd thing where i do a trapese with one and a inverse trapese with the other pretty sweet trick though and trying to master 2d high

My finesses are fine to do ufo grinds ive never had a problem except when i was beginning to learn it. basically practice and you will soon get the hang of it. Dont be discourage by others saying you cant do it cos finesse diabolos dont work. i tried the trick and it was fine.
