Okay, then I'll jump in with one:
(First half of the video)

Let me know if you need clues...

Hold on Void, after a difficult song like that I think Duncan at least deserves to suggest a video, no? :P

Can I guess...hand + leg stall then stopover right handstall into 3D shuffle with left handstall still holding the fourth then grab fifth and hover start like 4D but with fifth ready to go in from the left? Am I close? Very curious. :)

Kinda close ^^ , the problem with that start is that in order to shuffle 3 in the 4D hover the left hand needs to move up and down which would screw up the one in the left hand

Just tell us how many diabolos are not spinning before your self start, Ronnie. To have some hype :)

They are all spinning  ;)

P.S It is a different one to the one I was working on back in EJC 2014, after a year of trying that one I gave up on it, this one might still work once in a thousand times but at least it's more than never

PS: Did you ever try this @Ronnie?

Let's just say I got 11 catches from a different self start  ;)

I saw Arthur at Camvention recently and with your description he ticked all the boxes

822 sounds reasonable, i suppose you would do it by transitioning from 62 like this:


So no biggie  ;)

I also think it would look nice with suns, i always imagined the way to do fts 1-2-3-4 is to do:


I will get on with both of those asap, though i imagine they will take quite some time, Robin's 84242642 looked hard enough, i cant imagine getting 8 repeatedly and precisely will be easy.

Anyone want to see 8 siteswaps with 4 diabolos in low?

Hi guys,

I filmed this over the last 2 years and after realising that I will only be able to practice 5 diabolos assisted once before EJC 2016 I decided that I may as well post it publicly, the video ends abruptly to symbolise how this is a work in progress that is to be continued (or because I had this video and I couldn't be asked to edit another one better, whatever)

I hope people appreciate the music which I chose, it might remind some of you of a certain other diaboloist for whom Folkert threw diabolos in *cough* Dodson *cough*
Also, sorry the the quality of my personal best, it's a GoPro Hero 4 (I promise!) but it was filmed at 120fps so the horrible lighting makes the image very grainy when played back at 30 :-|

I guess many are thinking "this has to be bull****", instead of typing.

I guess I fall under that category. First off I dislike the methodology, it isn't exactly very scientific. Nonetheless, even if the bearings by hyperspin are better the duration of the spin isn't the only important thing. Although I do not do much vertax, galexis or integrals, I do think that the overall weight as well as weight distribution and build quality of the diabolo are also (if not even more) important, which is why I consider the EVO G2s to be flat out the best fixed axle diabolos out there.

That being said, if hyperspin are really just a great company then congrats on making such a good looking and spinning first diabolo, it's better than some companies have done over a couple of generations. I hope to test out these diabolos at the EJC in Holland (if anybody brings them that is)

I won't be the first one putting a hard one

I remember that this song was also used in one of Dodson's 4D attempts videos, which is sadly not available anymore :(

Ouuuuu  :-| I'm sorry for this inconvenience. Next week we will send the new J-SLIDES Pro for you Ronnie.

Thanks for that kind gesture Tomas :)

Just in case anyone else is wondering, the other stick is absolutely fine, which I believe proves that it was a defective one and not a flaw in the design.

Gear / J-Sliding sticks grip
« on: June 30, 2015, 06:12:55 PM »
I was really excited when I saw the J-Sliding sticks and since I recently lost my grip to one of my Deos sticks I thought I may as well go and buy one of the J-Sliding sticks and see how they go. They arrived promptly however withing half an hour of using them the handle untangled itself like this:

Is this a common problem? If so how do you fix this? I must say I was expecting a bit more from sticks that cost this much  :-|

It's just a 4 but you can also do 52 if you want to be fancier

The exit can be 2 or 41

Does anyone mind writing a short (or long) review of them? I'd like to know how they act computer to Epics, suns, taibolos and so on. Thanks!


It would be my pleasure...

Since I layed my eyes on them at BJC 2015 I knew that I would love them. I think that the style is very subjective, I love it because I feel that it looks very modern however I know others that would beg to differ. The metal ring is the most eye-catching of all and find it to be very functional too, the weighting just feels perfect. The only reason why I stopped using my suns was because I found them too heavy, it felt like the axle was heavy and as a result the cups had to be heavy to compensate for it, whether this was the case  I have no idea, I'm just wildly speculating. In any case that has definitely changed, the axle is (I believe) partially made of stainless steel and partially made of aluminium which makes it very light compares to the older one. I find the colour scheme to be very compelling, It sort of reminds me of the fascinate diabolos, in that the colours on the outside are more like accents as opposed to dominating the whole diabolo.

That's enough about style though, you can probably make your mind up from the pictures. How they compare against other diabolos is what the review is meant to be all about. Well they have been the only diabolos that I have been using for the last half a year (which is saying something, the last time I used a diabolo for this long was when I used my epics. They are much shorter than epics (and by much shorter I mean a centimetre or two) however they feel much better weighted. They are also much lighter, people think that the aluminium rings will make them much heavier however this is not the case. Sometimes when using epics (and typhoons for that matter) I got the impression that the the diabolos tilted just from using them and I found myself needing to correct them which is not that helpful when doing 3, 4 and more (teehee) diabolos. This may just be my imagination but I feel that (in the case of the epics) it is because of the large hubs, they make it easier to catch the diabolos however if they diabolo lands on them then it can turn, this can be a plus however, especially when doing diabolo high. One thing that I was afraid of was that the string would get caught on the aluminium rings which has unfortunately happened in the past when using the Finesse diabolos with the JC ultralight kit, however I am glad to report that there have been no such problems,

The name is good however it wouldn't have been all that bad if Sundia had called them the Sun Gen II, they are flat-out the best diabolos when it comes to doing suns with multiple diabolos. The first thing I heard when I gave them to Robin to play around with was that fts 53* felt just like 42* (after which he went on to do some insane 4D fts combo while riding a unicycle on a tightrope and disproving Fermat's last theorem, If I recall correctly) which is something that I completely agree with. I had a problem before I started using them where I could so multiple suns (basically a c-fan) with 3d and suns with a pause where 2 would go bye and then do another one, however I just couldn't do proper beated suns which was a real problem when I wanted to do continuous 53*, however after a couple of tries I got the hang of them,which came as a real relief.

In summary they are, without a doubt, the best diabolos I have ever used and I wish that I was better at integrals to give a proper review of them from other perspectives however numbers is what I do and they have served me well for that. At least this gives others the opportunity to contribute as well.

I hope that people have found this review helpful!

Robin showed his 5 low to the world the first time at the end of this video (but he could do it since 1 year before the video):

Don't, mean to be too picky however it has been more than one year, this is a video from when he did it in EJC 2011 in munich, 2 years before the Black sheep:

I would also like to take this oppurtinuty to say one thing about the hover start with 4, I know that I am (relatively) new to the diabolo scene but this is the one thing that I actually know about.

Many people credit Robin with being the first person to do the 4 diabolo hover because of his video 'Alibinbin and the 104 hovers' however even in that video he stated that Alistair is the inventor. I do know for a fact that Alistair developed the 4D hover start without the help of anyone else and without the knowledge that there was someone else out there that was able to do it, however I believe that the first person to do the hover and get into a shuffle is Jonas Körner who was working on it from before 2011 (If I am not mistaken), he did however keep it a secret and I know that to this day his shuffle isn't as stable as Alistairs.

I think it is also important to mention that there was a man (who's name currently escaped me) who tried to do the 4 low wrap start back in Diabology however I don't think that it was meant to be anything more than a silly attempt.

I know that it doesn't directly relate to the original question but I think that this is an important story to share and this is a suitable thread for this answer if I've ever seen one  ;)

You might give Robin a run for his money, and how did you start four low, full stall stopover, hover ect

He started with the wrap start and then moved onto the hover, not surprising since he is the inventor :P
