Also genocides from Vertax Inf. suicide.
Cool, really cool.

As for myself I am still struggling with vertax genocides. I can hit the diabolo pretty well, but I launch it too far away and the diabolo gets shoved as the string fails to wrap the axle. Have to try with a long line. I always fail to adapt my launch...

Uh.. Not really making a good name for yourself? 

Thought that the smilie made it clear that I was joking and that the last line in my post summed it up well. Was there something else?

Dunno, maybe diabolo is not their thing, maybe it is and they think 'speed kills'. maybe they spent the last 4 days stood up juggling and that was the first time they had a comfortable seat. Maybe, like it did for me, standing up meant a chance of falling 90 foot to the auditorium floor. Plenty of reasons including the outside chance they knew it would wind up someone who would be so offensive as to describe their actions as 'crippled or retarded'!  >:(

I am really sorry to have offended anyone, it was meant 100% as a compliment to William. But I agree that I went too far... Although, even if an act isn't my thing I would stand up either from cheer excitment made by others doing so or from curtesy, as most others are standing up. No idea how the auditorium looks like so I forgive myself there. But ofcourse, no idea why I am defending myself, should get an (unpleasant) spanking for using crippled and retarded as an offence too... So I will shamefully retract them.

And change them to rude, lazy and cowards  ;D

To sum it up without the rabbling. I am sorry. I really am.

Umm, whats up with 1/3 of the audience, they are either crippled or retarded. How the hell can you keep sitting after that?

Gear / Re: NEW DIABOLO'S - Grand Contenental Diabolo (Tiabolo brand)
« on: July 02, 2007, 03:43:53 AM »
So the inside is the same colour as the rest: Shiny and no yellow washer?  :)

I didn't see anything mentioned about vertax, any thought on that, as the fly got super rewievs on that area I am curious how this one compares. I am curious as I am definately getting one or the other most likely the Tiabolo.

Thanks Nev for doing this, I have been thinking about ordering some Diabigs but ordering from Japan scares me, and now when I have better ones(!) available just one timezone away I can't miss the opportunity :)

EDIT: Oh, and for new colour I would vote chrome/Silver with the same pearl effect as the purple one. Come on, screw pink go with something new :)

Got a 3d sprinkler armstall into a double armstall into a onehanded stall yesterday (damn that´s a long name ;D) which is so far the longest 3D combo I´ve ever done. Managed a double with a stalled pirouette into onehanded today. Have been trying to put in a double with the leg as well as the others in a combo but the diabolos lose speed too fast.

Also been messing around with a stalled 2D pirouette under the high pop in a 3D double, but not even close at the moment. Maybe from a normal armstall it would work, but that´s almost like cheating.

You now you are the most technical swede in the world when it comes to diabolo, right? Jönsson has been doing the same thing for like 10-15 years so he nows his stuff, but it is not alot of stuff.
So take pride in that. I hope I can meet you, and maybe film you some day as you seem unable to.

Thanks for the answer!
It is strange... I wonder what they thought about when they decided to differ the colour on the hubs and have a yellow washer... So white washer won't be available at all?

Question about the colour after changing to non-bearing axle:
If I buy white ones, they come completely in white except the metal axle and the yellow washer. Then if I change to non-bearing. Will they stay all white or does the non-bearing come with black hubs? To sum it up. Does a Fly with bearing look the same as one with non-bearing? And wouldn't spray-paint work with the yellow washer? As it is hard finding permanent markers with white colour.

Cool, but what were they thinking with those red diabolos? Probably are more visible live but still, red clothes, red background, red mat, red diabolos, a blur of red red red.

Haha, yeah I know I am so lazy.
Thanks for the tips though! You arent heading to Luleå anytime soon? Would be cool to meet you as you are easily one of the best diaboloist in Sweden with Jönsson being your only competitor.
I am thinking three high will get some heavy attention in this summer as that is less patience demanding than low. Enough of this off-topic talk though. I am probably to lazy to ever get the hang of three low on my own. Not having a diaboloist friend makes it kind of boring sometimes. Thanks again 88!

Sigh, all the amazing progress you all are making makes me want to get back into diabolo, espcially start with three... But when I just tried I feel like an idiot I might as well just tighten the line and throw them all up in the ceiling, thats about what I can do... For how long must I live with only doing 1ott before crashing? Say if I give it a minimum of 10 mins a day? I just need to see some progress for me to get patience enough to get it fully. With juggling it comes so much easier. But increasing one diabolo is a total change of technique, a technique I dont have...

To participate in the thread, I mastered the vortex like 6 months ago. And yes I really should do more two, but I am a number idiot so I think I will only do 2 diabolo stuff that helps with my 3. Tips?

Now that I look back at what I just wrote it is kind of OT. In short it is mainly a "nice progress, I am jealous"-post with a plea for some help. A plea that can be ignored if you wish.

A guy in my class kept laughing when I messed up with sprinkler suicide exit, so the next time I tried I just didnt catch the stick. One diabolo just hit him spot on in the crotch, very funny, especially his raging afterwards trying to tip over my locker... Heh, he is a good guy though, so it was all fun :)

Right click on the track. Click Apply Velocity Tape. From there you can drag it up or down to increase or decrease speed of the playback.

Hi, Im about to buy 3 of these from naranja as I get paid for a medicine study I'm participating in. Anyway, I am either going to get white ones or black ones. I am leaning towards the black ones but I am just wondering how much the shine of the colour dissapear after time. Ofcourse I need to stay of asphalt and things like that. But does it scratch and fade from corrections with aluminum sticks and maybe a drop on a indoor tennis court now and then. Any info on this is much appreciated!

I agree with Matt on most, if not everything.
About the music though, everyone have his or her taste so if you like polka with your juggling, use the polkiest tune you've got and disregard **** you hear about it from 50 cent fanatics or whatever. A thing I find fun in a video is if you use a tune that is not heard by many. This way people can discover music that they like(I discovered Cat Empire from a Wes video), and also can concentrate on the music as well as the juggling making it more interesting. I for one will live by this hardcore-style(:P), and try to use music that only my friends have produced and that has only been heard by a few hundreds. This makes a video more rare than if you would use, say Freestyler or anything of the sort. Good luck with your video, just follow Matts advice, although do not be afraid of using music that you like, and you'll be okey!

About exiting I find it helpful if you start exiting as you see the "wrong" diabolo go over the top and down. By the wrong diabolo I mean the one you are not supposed to backwrap/trapeze exit with. For left backwrap I believe it is the left diabolo that is the correct one to exit with. As for my method it helps getting the timing and it doesn't get as stressful as quickly trying to exit as you see the correct diabolo passing and then quickly backwrap. But I am probably not the right person to speak of this as I am also in the basic fan learning process, and enters from a right sticktrap. Just have patience and you'll do fine. Good luck

Hey, 88, do naranja have trouble shipping to Sweden, or what went wrong? Because I'm trying to get my hands on some Diabigs and Naranja seems to be the best choice, but if they have trouble with Sweden I need to start looking too.

Probably frontwrap-backwrap double sprinkler with double duicide exit (Jako's trick), I have lost it now though bit I am going to start working on it again.
