Gear / 2 Diabolos, importance of weight.
« on: June 20, 2005, 01:23:47 PM »
The generally accepted theory is that yes you do definetly want to have the same weight.

If the weight difference is big then its quite a comic motion

but even if its small it can affect you
I'v heard it said
a finnese G1 and a finnesse G2 have enough difference to mess with you

so when u get really good at 2 diabolo and want to mess with the dynamic then having different weights might be a good idea

but i would say for learning u definitly want to make the road as easy as possible

or u could just practice more to compensate  :lol:

so i've been just playing round a bit

i normally max out at 3 reverse hyperloops but mostly its two
i have in the past gone above this but they need to be really tight or touching a bit

i found a new release i was using for an old trick, to get out of the reverse hyperloop i'm now working on wraping frontwards and backwards at the same time since the hyperloop is a lot slower u can leave them just hanging in the air and tale the string down to catch them both when they fall

Hyperloop, trapeze, Double suicide stick realease
gives a really slow double sucide with two diabolos very easy to catch

I think mabye it helps that i use harlequins

i belive a sprinklers stability derives from two forces, the spin of the diabolos and the inertia of the pattern.

so if u really shunt a fat bethemoth, inertias on ur side

another trick i have been working on is go into hyperloop then send the hyperloop over in a trapeze then back out of the trapeze then wrap out

yeah i think that the grind entry technique works best because the diabolo
is thrown up into the pattern which means the hyperloop doesn't have any weight on it, the retro-Hyperloop sure can't just sit there like a normal one but u can get 5 or 6 rotations while its weightless

i find the exit difficult i sometimes have one shoot out a couple of metres above my head

now theorectically if we could go nto a retro-hyperloop grind we could send it back again into a normal hyperloop, in fact if u could get to the grind it would fall in really naturally  

Rinse wash and Repeat      Just imagine

Also another varaition i'm working on is froma normal hyperloop throw the patteren up and unwrap frontways and backways simultaniously trying so not only do u get out of the hyperloop but u unwrap the diabolos right off the string
i'm having difficulty with this though because the diabolos in a hyperloop are pretty much always moving in opposite directions so getting a good looking catch is hard

something i've been experimenting with is reverse hyperloops or "Retro Hyperloop" i like to call. it since the move is just a loop around the diabolos u can make it rotate eithier way so i've been finding ways to make it turn anti clockwise

sure no one but an experienced diaboloist knows u've done anything different but thats not what this is all about

i've got two ways i've been trying to get into it

Left hand trapeze, throw it out hard and wrap over the top with the right stick ( doesn't seem to work that well but u can get an idea)


Do a normal hyperloop, go to a hyperloop grind, then throw the grinding diabolo on the stick into the string on the left. then unwrap the thing before it collapses left hand anticlockwise ( this way gives a longer one)

wow my hurting the audiance forum was more populur than i thought it would be  :lol:

in terms of damage i reckon an umbrella could be up there in the most dangerous moves and now that i think about it Excalibur Genocide to the face or round the neck to a choke hold ( sounds like a mortal combat move)

i remember whgen i was first learning genocides and then throwing up the infinte i ended up with some crazy stuff like i'd throw the pattern in the air and both sticks would wrap up round the diabolo tranferring the anguler momentum of a 2.5 meter pattern to a 2 foot one. visulaise a one of those spinning ninga stars but coming down above ur head  :shock:

i got out of the way ok

( but i wish i'd somehow caught it, got out of it, and filmed it)

So the other day i was practicing my double Hyperloop Quadruple Suicide (i luv saying that name) on concrete and when my wooden stick came round instead of catching it, it hit the Concrete ground and ended up with a huge crack down one side

now i've had these sticks for years and they've been through heaps without almost a scratch so i'm guessing the speed on it must have been pretty intense and that got me to thinking what if i'd hit someone with that.

diabolos don't really hurt cos they're rubber so if a non-juggler gets hit they more likely to be freaked out but a supersonic Stick on the noggin  :shock:

how fast would it have to go to be fatal  :twisted:

anyway apart from sharing that experience i wanted to ask how have other people Hurt eithier their spectators or equipment?

what moves have the most fatal Capability?

I've ordered a new nesbitt  + 2 G2's + mod kits

Feels good   :evil:

i've been playing with my 3 halequis for ages and there a bit heavy for some things
i think i'll be able to do a bit of stuff i've been trying for a while with the new ones I really want to get into some Excalibur

So i'm wondering if anyones ever experimented with Flaming Excalibur
I'm sure its gonna be even heavier than the halequins but Just Imagine  :shock:

Wouldn't have to be much just enouh to catch on vidio

First I got Given a Harlequin

Then I wanted to learn two So i ordered another

Now I'm Learning Three

But I'm Hearing about this Finesse G2
It sounds like its the shiznic

I certainly don't know any locals with one but cause of all the talk I might consider just ordering a couple (and have to learn to do two all over again)  

Where's a site for ordering G2's?

I haven't grinded a drawstring but one time my diabolo managed to catch the drawstring strong on my sweatpants and yanked it right out

unfortunetly my pants didn't fall down

imagaine that for a routine finisher

crowd would go  :shock:

I Hear Dreadlock Grinds are pretty good as well

I've considered just growing one long manky piece of hair just to do grinds on. that would be commitment!

I'm interested in what things or places u guys have done grinds on
the scope of possobility is practically endless.

 a couple of years ago I used to amuse my self sending my diabolo away from me on a tightrope grind and letting it grind back. (not so original)

I also have managed to grind a ridiculusly long surf casting fishing rod
which looks really cool cause it bends in half and ur diabolo is kept on by the little ringlet thing on the end (slightly more original)

But what got me started on this is a couple of days ago after I joined this site I was diaboloing in my room and managed to do a beanbag grind  :shock:
so I tried it again and then flicked it up with the end of the stick and kept diaboloing  :D     (very original)

Look forward to hearing ur crazy stories!

After watching a Vid of someone doing a one handed whip catch through their legs I tried it once and managed to punch myself in the nuts  :shock:

I never did get back to learning that trick
