my best moment was when my finesse diabolo fell apart during a vertax genocide. I missed, but the lower cup came off and the diabolo spun on the ground like I monobolo.
I wish i had it on tape.   :)

About the tutorials, if you want to make a helpful tutorial, you need to make it as soon as you learn it because then you no the difficulties, problems and solutions. You can prehaps make a sort of diary filming your progress and add notes about what you accomplished and how. This could get the whole diabolo community involved because anyone who is not so advanced can really help contribute.

Hope it helps

Tricks / Re: Integrals??? HELP!

The fist integral I learnt looks like this (0:12)
Diabolo Tricks

Here's how to do it.
1. You hold you right stick so the stick is facing downwards.
2. You let go, slide your hand downwards and grab the string.
3. You spin the right stick anti-clockwise (correct me if im wrong) and at the same time slowly slide your hand downwards so your holding the string around the middle.
4. Swing the stick so the stick wraps around the axle and release your left stick at the same time.
5. When the right stick passes 6 o'clock, switch the had that is holding the sticks.
6. Catch the right stick with your right hand.
7.Your left hand should slide upwards (?) and you should end up holding the string before the stick.
8. You should end with a left wrap.

In the video, I have used a different enty and I am a lefty but the slowmotion should help.
(I made this video 4 months ago so don't critisize me for the bad tricks.)

Variation- instead of switching sticks to a minigenocide!

Hope it helps,

Tricks / Re: Getting Into Vertax With Horizontal Power Whips???
« on: September 14, 2009, 04:25:53 PM »
Thats how I enter vertax- it gives me more speed.
Also, you can speed up the diabolo during vertax (its easier than the chinese whip acceleration)
All the same, you still need chinese whips at the end.

The other day, I was doing a Chinese Suicide, and the stick missed my hand and went under the axle. 

Under the axle? Chinese suicides end with open string so if you miss the stick you will drop the diabolo.
Can you post a video? It might make things a lot clearer

I've voted for finesse with a wide axle, but I think that no matter how nice the diabolo is, you still require practice to learn a trick. People say the taibolos are terrible but that doesn't stop ryo yabe from doing amazing tricks with them.

I created a 4 minute video using the free trial version of adobe premium elements. I have been diaboloing for 14months so I'm not as experienced as most of you but would appreciate it if you could give me some advice about how I can improve. ;)

Tricks / Re: "easy" integral (backside suicide combo)
« on: August 07, 2009, 08:59:09 PM »
I didn't mean I wanted to learn an easy integral but I wanted to learn how to do the integral in the video.

Also, I didn't call the trick easy integral because I though it was easy but because that's what the title of the video was.


Tricks / "easy" integral (backside suicide combo)
« on: August 02, 2009, 03:20:26 PM »
better version of EASY INTEGRAL
Can anyone explain how this trick works because from what I can see, he's starts with a mini genocide but instead of catching the diabolo with the suiciding stick he catches it with his other hand. After catching the diabolo, he adds a wrap and does the same thing all over again. Then suddenly he is in an integral! :o
