thats sweet!! only comment i have is try not to reach for your suicides(the last trick in the vid,i think) just let it come around and catch it in a more natural place,makes it look nicer i think, but thats just my view on suicides. lol. i need to learn reverse over the arm tricks.

well done

Name: Adam Gale/Fadge
Location: Southampton, England
Age: 17

1. How many years have you diaboloed for? errr i think its more like 6months now.around that anyway.

2. What or who got you started? My mate Joe had a little diabolo and we used to just throw it around in the park,we then looked on and got really into it, then diabology was even more of a hook.

3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general? Its something i'm getting good at and enjoy it at the same time,also not too many people do it locally so is a bit differant.

4. How many hours a day do you diabolo on average? from 1-3 hours i think.

5. Do you ever perform with the diabolo? not really,sometimes infront of friends though i guess.,if i get alot better i might think about it

6. Do you juggle other props? If so: balls, clubs, rings, cigar boxes, devil sticks... ? i can do basic 3ball juggling,tried contact juggling and soon to use rings and mayby even devilsticks. cigar boxes look good but wouldnt no where to start with them.

7. What are your favourite diabolos, sticks, and string? I use a red and blue Mr. Babache Finesse G2's, mite get a white one soon.

8. Do you like working with 1, 2, or 3 diabolos the best? i like using one because im best with it at the moment,but want to learn two even more,3 is what i dream of!!!

9. What is your favourite diabolo trick that you can do? errrr, with 1d probably the tomicide,or some of the japanese whips and mini-genocides, with 2d i love the sprinkler.but thats about the extent of my skills with 2d,lol

10. What is the most amazing diabolo trick you've ever seen done? probably the integral suicides, in their varying forms. or any tricks with 3d.

11. What tricks are driving you nuts right now (what are you working on)? Vortex and some hand trap suicide thing with 2d, and right handed infinate suicides with 1d.

12. What other diaboloists have inspired you? Norbi, TMFP but especially JiBe Eric Baptiste and Antonin but also Martijn and Arjan have had an effect on me, all of these people still inspire me to get better everytime i see another video of them.

in reference to the 'ranking' business i dont think it can be related to certain tricks you can do, i think it is to do with the way you can link them together. for example i have been learning tricks i see on 'pro'videos, but i am nowhere close to pro. I have trouble linking tricks and making them all flow,i believe you are only pro when u can have seemless runs and jus make them up. much like how people improvise on guitar, then i think it comes down to personal methods too. Some people can just pick things up quicker than others and have a natural grasp of certain aspects more than others.

An example of this is that my mate picked up infinate suicides almost straight away and im still slaving away trying to get them too work,but i can do mini-genocides better than him,while he is still learning them,even tho we are of the same ability and been practicing for the same length of time.

As for three, i dont think you need to be able to do any tricks to start,just need the enthusiasm to keep dropping two after speeding them up,again and again and again. :lol: but i guess corrections and speeding up the diabolos are quite important,or 2dhigh. seeing as these are more relevant too 3d than any tricks are.

Sorry for wasting you time in this long post, but these are my views on this anyway. :lol:

yeah i think it would look better without the writing on the back.also with the pic on the front, which is soooo sweet,but, it is a lil hard to see what hes doing with the other stick, i was a bit confused for very nice tho. have u got any pics of it with the black and grey? that would look best i think

hey sean,i saw the pic of ure broken sticks, this happened to me too. but i have found a way to fix them, if not make them stronger,

if u drill out the plastic from the sticks and the tip(which is awkward) u can then screw a bolt into the stick, if it is a tight fit, it creates its own thread(if u get me) then u saw off the bolt head and can file it down to smooth it out, then re-thread the very tip of it and you can then put the tips back on. mayby need some teflon tape to stop any un wanted unscrewing. but apart from that they are back to normal and alot stronger.

hey man that video is awesome, its inspired me to try and think up some  combos, but sadly they are my weak i can do some average tricks but when it comes to linking tricks it jus falls apart. do you have any advice for linking tricks or a kinda theory behind your mastery??

any help would be grately appreciated.

Great music too.
