Tricks / Re: I just learnt to... (2008)

I just learnt that I'm now awesome at yo-yo and am not as interested in diabolo anymore.


P.S. Don't bother trying to hunt me out, I have changed my address.

Why the hell do I even bother... *Goes to throw diabolos in the bin*

Seriously now, that was the MOST INCREDIBLE thing I have ever seen in my short 13 year life. How is that humanly possible, (we know that you're a precision engineered robot really, no need to rub it in) I can do some basic slack suicides but what the hell.

Duncan FHZ, Dif-e-yo Konkave Bearing, 100 Blue Type 8 Slicks, Alchemy Shims, Alchemy silicone O-Rings, Flowable Silicone, 8 Duncan Friction Stickers and a Magnum Classic. It's not diabolo related but who gives a damn.

The oddest dream with diabolos in it I've ever had was a few nights ago. In the dream I'd just got Super Smash Bros Brawl after looking for it for weeks, when I got home I put it in my Wii. As the loading screen came on my two finesses and my fly appeared and shouted "Betrayer!!!", then they flew into my face and exploded...

Weird, huh?

Don't say that I need to go to a psychiatrist, I already have.


P.S. I wonder if it means something...

Most peoples hands have four fingers, the diabolo is balanced on the thumb in case you hadn't noticed...

« on: July 20, 2008, 09:43:29 AM »
Just thought it could be something for you to mull over.
I did and it makes sense, the amount of gear combinations is massive (although I only have 3 diabolos in usable condition)
1D Sticks: MB Xtremes Foam Grip, Henrys Carbon Short or Sundia Carbon Short.
1D Diabolos: Finesse, Fly Bearing, Fly with Finesse Wide Axle, Sly (thank you langerz), Sly with Finesse Wide Axle, Finesse Wide Axle, Finesse with Harlequin medium Axle.
1D String: MB Yellow, MB Pink, Very thick string from a hardware shop (great for slack, I can whip it round my head no problem)

2D Sticks: Sundia Carbon Short, MB Xtremes Foam Grip.
2D Diabolos: Finesse.
2D String: Broken in Henrys (any colour normally orange or green)

Vertax: Any sticks, any string, Fly or Sly
Loop: Any String (preferably MB), Sly


I'm New / Re: Working on a combo
« on: July 19, 2008, 11:12:57 AM »
No problem. ;). You might want to use the orbits halfway through the combo to speed the diabolo up, you're making good progress, I didn't start making combos until 3 months in. (I've been doing it for 8 months now)

« on: July 19, 2008, 10:17:01 AM »
Suns are good as are orbits, suicides and pretty much anything, yeah just stick to the basics get them down fast and smooth in whatever order you want. When you get better put some slacks in the middle as well as some more advanced suicides. By the way I'm not a fan of long combos with different types of trick in, so this advice is pretty rich coming from me. See you around.

Wow your dedicated, mind you I can diabolo 5 hours straight, no breaks. Never been bothered to actually count up the amount of time in a whole day though. I'm hardcore.

That would be an "Integral Lamecide". I'm not entirely sure who invented it it, think Garner came up with the name (not 100% sure though. Duncan, please have me shot if I'm wrong. Thank you in advance).

Slackwhips, especially into knots, lacerations, oh and 3rd Base Slacks (mind out of the gutter :P, 4:24 CaRnAgE if I'm wrong ;D)
