General / Genocide, Suicide, Homicide
« on: May 18, 2006, 05:49:40 PM »
@frank, i get people saying diabolo means devil but the funny thing is, it doesn't. Diablo means devil, but I think you are right about the diabology that does seem to mean the study of the devil.

Also I was a bit confused about deicide? But is it about the murder of a deity? thats what i figured.

I do find it quite pointless to change names for things like this, the reason people may get offended is because they don't understand. If they spent the time to understand what they hear rather than jugde early and get angry about it we could still live in a world that isn't controlled by stupid politically correct bullsh*t.

anyway, rant over.

On another note, the Buddahs revenge is a cool trick, I was well chuffed when i learnt it!!

Cool topic.

I thought vertax infinite suicides wouldn't be possible due to how they work and like the small effect that gravity has on us..... god im in awe of Tempei, such a talented guy, also a very nice chap!

I need ot practice my vertax alot.


Gear / Length of sticks
« on: May 05, 2006, 10:37:19 PM »
short carbon fibre sticks are my favourite because they have great control with one and two diabolos and are alot more comfortable to use. I advise against fibre glass as they flex too much especially when doing two,and even more so if you are using circuses rather than finesses. I see no benefit with the long sticks as they are quite cumbersome to use and I end up holding them in the middle anyway to get good enough control on two diabolos.

Sorry for the long reply.

Hope it helps though


I'm New / How to throw in the diabolo when you are a leftie?

Which is the wrap start ?

probably the one where you wrap the diabolo to start it ?  :roll:

if you thought about that before you wrote it you mite have realised that floor starts also involve wraps so that doesn't help anyone does it frank.

The wrap start uses a left back wrap on diabolo you are about to introduce into the shuffle and is 'hovered' by using your left hand. I write this as if i was left handed so im assuming this would be how you would do it.

But I guess Mattias just explained it better. :)


I'm New / Can I use different weights for 2 or 3 diabolos?
« on: May 02, 2006, 06:14:04 PM »
I agree with the others, it is possible to learn with two differant weights but you are only making it harder for yourself. I did it and it took me ages to learn but once i had two finesses i picked it up in a few hours


I'm New / Catching the stick (was: need some advise!)
« on: May 01, 2006, 09:02:28 PM »
if you are lazy when it comes to catching properly your style must be quite sloppy and inaccurate.

I'd advise to practice catching the stick clean as this is what your aiming to achieve if you practice other methods it may become harder to unlearn them.

Uusing chinese suicides is a good start for the suicide catch and them move on to regular suicide.

Also dont throw the stick let gracity work its magic and let it get taken from your grip.

hope this helps


I'm New / How long does it take to learn 2 diabs ?
« on: May 01, 2006, 08:58:22 PM »
@ crazy clown :its a joke, when people ask you how long something takes to do, you can reply saying "how long is a piece of string?"

@williewonka: it depends on too many variables.

ammount of practice, confidence, self control. and of course some ammount of skill with one as well in my opinion but too what extent is yet another personal preference.

It took me about a month but i started learning it with two different sized diabolos, which I strongly advise against!!!! I found the wrap start easiest and just kept trying till it worked a few times and so on and so forth.

Bane: That kid with the handsticks doing the "Have you seen my string trick?"


he also did the 'would you like to see my card trick' and was the only person at bjc who got on my nerves

he wouldn't leave me and my mates alone with his card trick, coin trick or his diabolo handstick tricks! he didn't seem to do anything else apart from that.

I loved the BJC I met alot of the people from the forum and saw a few others and was really glad I got to see them. I learnt a few tricks from people as well. I can't wait till the EJC now!

General / t-shirts (now with a proposed design)
« on: January 18, 2006, 10:17:55 PM »
i think eggys idea with the 3 high or the passing is a very good idea,im pretty sure most normal people can tell u cant juggle three balls like that,and who the hell thinks about juggling footballs when you see three objects in the air?!?!?

i also like the small with flag and either the avater of the flag or i think the three white g2 would be good,especially on a black shirt,white tops are a bit gay and hard to make the pic on the back stand out i woulda thought.


Tricks / Re: Infinite suicides
« on: January 17, 2006, 08:49:19 PM »
i've been practicing for awhile now and can do the right hand infinite suicides, also the genocide from it and also the kinda grind then duicide then carry on infinite suiciding. if you get me :)    

i am now on a quest to find more to do with them, does anyone else know other variations? i am think about Antonin's genocide but with the stick going infron behind and then infront of the body before cathcing it. it's on diabology anyway on Of baguettes and diabolos. But unfortunately i fear for my life when a stick is spinning hta fast near to my body in every direction  :lol:

anyones variations would be welcome,im really liking them now that i can do them. :D

yeah i guess so,it would be cool to have it on as the small logo with the site name but i think it'd be excessive to have a huge canadian flag on it, everyone would be asking why there is a canadian flag rather than whats that white bell shaped thing. :lol:

coming from a british point of view i think it would look better if it didn't have a massive canadian flag on it, i like it with the and a flag at the end of the writing with the three white g2's underneath it as the front on the chest and the back should have as dynamaniac and others have said, a image of 3 hi or some immense trick. also i think black and white would make it easier to make and almost everyone like black and white.

i think this would be an amazing idea and a good way for sean to get the money he deserves for running this site, and also get alot more people into the world of diabolo aswell.

i reckon the three white diabolo picture would look immmense on a black t-shirt with on the back across the shoulders.
i dont no if anyone else thinks that would look good.

also the donations would be a good idea.


p.s. i would pay anyting to get one of the shirts!!!!

Videos / Double stopover magic knot?
« on: January 13, 2006, 05:29:45 PM »
i dont no whether its just me but, a second diabolo didn't get mentioned in the trick. and it is basically a fritz release but just involving turns. as long as it is done from a back hand it will be released from the string.
