Gear / Diabolo customization.

After a while your hands get used to it and you don't get blisters. :wink:

My main problem is that my hands sweat really badly when i'm usings the Diabolo so i find it really hard to hold on to the dense foam grips and they are always slipping out my hands so i would imagine it to be impossible to keep hold of plain aluminium sticks! :p

Whoa wierd mod Mr Pink!
I changed all of my cups around on all 3 of my finesses, but then didn't like it so had to change them all back i like them better that way, i pretty much kept my alu sticks normal but did add white tape to the bottom of them.

P.s arn't the bottom of the alu sticks bottom part made out of dense foam not silicon?

Cool! One handed sprinkler passing! With the cool suicide exit! ( suicide while the sticks are in one hand) Since i only found out about them yesterday :mrgreen:
Now i've got to work on passing it around the back and legs, and a little trick where you throw the whole thing up whilst it's sprinkling and catch it all again.

I found it quite confusing about what happend during the sprinkler part where you bring it behind your back, but now i fully understand it and have tried it a few times but haven't been successful with it once! :x

Hope your having a great birthday and well done on your 3 low :wink:

Tricks / Re: 3 diabolo shuffle: help! (wrap start & asynch shuffle)
« on: May 21, 2005, 12:22:24 PM »
Oh yeah steve, correct me if i'm wrong but i think that the Diabolo that falls off at the end is the one which you kept in the stopover at the begining, so i carefully watched the stopover and realised that the Diabolo inside it begins to tilt as it's in the stopover, is that a one off:?:

 If not perhaps you could try working on keeping it straight and well balanced whilst it is in the stopover.

any help appreciated!

Steve Arnold

Well i can't do 3 yet, so i can't give you any help there, but i'd like to say how good you 3 looks!
I have heard alot of peoples first 3 trick is a sun, you shoud try to wrap the slow diabolo to give it a bit of speed, or even try corrections :D  
It looks like your doing really well! Your shuffle looks cool :wink:

How long have you been learning 3 for?
I remember at the bcc you practising 3 and it looked good there too, how many shuffles did you used to be able to do then?

Oh yeah and whats with the post subject : "tie ur left hand to ur foot!". ?

Sometimes when I suffle, one diabolo stays still and the other satellites it like around the leg.  Is that a trick or an error?

I think it's called something like orbitors, i know theres other people here who know more about it than me.
It usually happens to me if 1 Diabolo is going really quickly and the other is going really slow and the fast one circles it. :wink:
