I just thought to add that I would really appreciate doing some sort of 4D endurance competition  :-D

Gear / Re: Broken Sundia Evo G1 GOLD, someone else?
« on: April 13, 2016, 08:16:33 PM »
Sundia Evo all the way, they are by far the best fixed diabolos out there (in my opinion  ;) ). I never had my cups break although my axle did bend once (no biggie) and I know that just a couple days ago one of Tyson's Sundia EVO G1 diabolos broke as well.

I would highly recommend the EVO G2, they are exactly like the G1s but more durable, the stability rings do not deform, since they are made from resin instead of metal, which is a huuuuuuge plus for me since it means grass, mud, sand, small rocks and other small debris cannot get caught in them. Also the cups are made of a slightly softer plastic, nothing like the finesse diabolos although probably comparable to Taibolos and Epics (if not a tiny bit firmer than them).

Daniel Dodson actually did this back in 2009 with fixed axles from shuffle

Don't forget about Zack, he didn't do it as clean as Dodson but he did it way back in 2006, nearly 10 years ago!!!

And then he did an even cleaner version at the BJC in 2008:

Also Tino does similar tricks pretty much on a weekly basis thanks to his weekly series, although he usually unwraps the sprinkler with the diabolo that goes by instead of using his hands.

Don't get me wrong, it is a beautiful transition into the vortex, especially since you are using bearings which make the 'elevator' part of that trick much harder, the thing is that is isn't a new concept, just an awesome variation  :)

I still suspect he is not using bearings... but I can't be sure

3:06 gives it away that he is, fixed axle diabolos do not last that long. Also the beautiful fts combo before it is certainly possible with fixed axle diabolos but the way he only needs to accelerate it a bit to go into another combo doesn't seem right, I would also be expecting the diabolos to wobble waaaay more than that and the suns to be slower, those kinds of very fast suns are a result of using bearings. There's also the fact that he uses his left hand quite a lot during his shuffle, likely due to the fact that he is using bearings.

sorry if my sentence was misleading  :embarassed:

Haha no problem, I probably read too much into it, although I am waiting in anticipation for sundia to release that functionality some time in the [hoefully near] future  ;)

This time the axle set is switchable between 5 Bearing and Fixed axle  :-D

I have to make sure before I get too excited, does that mean that if I felt bored of using bearings during my session I could just flick a switch and have a fixed axle diabolo? Because if so...

Videos of the Week / Re: VotW compilation 2015!

I think that the problem with doing the voting for the editor this early in the year is that many people will decide to leave the filming to later and eventually they will forget about it after a couple of months. Another solution could be to try to make the collab bi-annual (since 6 months is an arbitrary a measure of time as 365 days :P) however I doubt that there is enough activity here to make 2 great videos a year. Also doing 2 videos a year would probably take away from how special the collab really is, I always view it as an early Christmas present  :-D .

Personally I would love to have you as an editor, your 2012 video has amassed 750,000 views (actually 741,626 as of me typing this, not that I am counting...) and it is my favourite collaboration to date  ;) although that is just personal preference ^^

For those who expect numbers I am planning to shoot a more technical video in the following months.

Best Christmas present I could imagine  :-D

EDIT: That is not to say that I didn't like this video, I loved the trick at 3:25, I just really want to see how much has changed since '8 siteswaps with 4 diabolos', if that was back in 2010 then God only knows what stuff you can do now  :o

Very useful and illustrative contribution. Thanks, Ronnie!

Thanks Wis, it took longer to figure those entries out than I thought it would  :)

f you want to run the ones that contain [], you need to remove the [] marks.
Also I think it is worth mentioning that the reason they are in brackets is because that part can be repeated indefinitely, the other numbers are the entries and exits

Tricks / Re: Two Handed Diabolo Siteswap Notation
« on: December 05, 2015, 05:18:39 PM »
Ok I have spent the last hour trying to figure out some patterns and I came up with these:

Shuffle (5) = 3B7

64 = 93B53B

753 = b3B73B33B

8642 = d3B93B53B13B

56[73]45 = 3B73B93B[b3B33B]53B7

574[73]635 = 3B73Bb3B53B[b3B33B]93B7

567[82]345 = 3B73B93Bb3B[d3B13B]33B53B7

58483[82]72625 = 3B73Bd3B53Bd3B33B[d3B13B]b3B13B93B13B7

Also there is this massive combo:
3B73B73B73B73B93B53B73B73B73B73B73B93B53B73B93B53B73B93B53B73B93B53B93B53B93B53B93B53B73B73B73B73B73B73B73B73B73B73B93B53Bb3B73B33B73B73B73B73B73B73Bb3B73B33Bb3B73B33Bb3B73B33Bd3B93B53B13Bd3B93B53B13Bd3B93B53B13Bd3B93B53B13B73B73B73B73B73B93Bb3B33Bb3B33Bb3B33Bb3B33Bb3B33Bb3B33Bb3B33Bb3B33B53B73B73B73B73B73B73B93Bb3Bd3B13Bd3B13Bd3B13Bd3B13Bd3B13Bd3B13Bd3B13Bd3B13Bd3B13B33B53B7

I think that although this is very complicated compared to DSSS I can see it being more useful for things such as reverse throws and things like that which I am going to try doing right now. I recommend setting the speed to 7.5 beats per second and setting the dwell beats to 1.0 for a more realistic looking shuffle ;)

I am so sad that I missed it this year, everyone has gotten so much better!
This is a great video, the filming and music are amazing and I think this video highlights just how amazing the EJC is!

I can't wait to EJC 2016 in the Netherlands, it is going to be amazing :-D

why did you cut off the beginning of my trick Max?  :-D

I was wondering that too but then I remembered the magic or youtube's 0.25x playback button  :-D

Awesome song and great editing!

Sebi and Folkert's 3D tricks are the highlights for me  :-D

Also, props for editing it so early! I was expecting it to be released in December!

Anyone in the UK who's looking to buy one of these, get in touch with nev, you wont be disappointed at all.

Nev is the best haha

could you compare it to the fixed axle sundia EVO and other bearing diabolos.

The evo G2s are NOT bearing diabolos, I will compare them with the G1 EVOs but that's it, I don't think I use bearings enough to be able to compare them, that's just not my jam  8)

They are all so nice, I am tempted to buy some but they are quite expensive, especially considering considering they come without the lighting kits  :-| I might post a review of the G2s
