« on: December 16, 2005, 12:17:45 PM »
2 light bulbs in the last week - one was from a trapeze trick and the oher was attempting a whip catch. :wink: And now my light fitting wobbles more than it used to... I've stopped doing throwing tricks in my bedroom now  :P Trouble is there's much more stuff to break in the rest of the house, and as has been said, it's too cold o;utside. Though today's not too bad. *goes outside*

Gear / New Henrys axles

Sorry for a noob question, but what is the advantage of the concave curve on the Allround hubs? I can see how wider hubs could help, but it seems to me as if the curve would be a disadvantge compared to the straight-edged wide hubs, as it would make it harder for the string to reach the axle when catching etc. Could someone clarify this for me?

1. How many years have you diaboloed for? I started ages ago - probably I was about 8 but I can't remember - but I've only been doing it regularly for a year or so.

2. What or who got you started? My brother (that's je4d for anyone who's interested - he's been pestering me to join this forum for ages :)) basically. He started, I copied :)

3. What do you like best about the diabolo or juggling in general?
Making up new tricks (most of them aren't actually new, but that's not the point :)) and the feeling of achievement when you finally get something

4. How many hours a day do you diabolo on average?
Not many. Maybe a couple of hours a week. I practise more when mr bro's around.

5. Do you ever perform with the diabolo?
No, but I busked in portugal once :)

6. Do you juggle other props? If so: balls, clubs, rings, cigar boxes, devil sticks... ?
Never have been able to juggle. I'll have to get around to teaching myself sometime...

7. What are your favourite diabolos, sticks, and string?
Henry's Circus and yellow string - I haven't decieded on sticks yet, but I'm getting some Mr Babache xtreme sticks for christmas :)

8. Do you like working with 1, 2, or 3 diabolos the best?
I can't do 2 consistently, but I'm getting there :P The feeling of shuffling is really cool though

9. What is your favourite diabolo trick that you can do?
I've made up a couple of cool combos - I can't think of a favourite single trick offhand

10. What is the most amazing diabolo trick you've ever seen done?
Things from diabology... I couldn't name them cause I don't know what most of them are called :?

11. What tricks are driving you nuts right now (what are you working on)?
I've been practising 2d when I have access to 2 diabolos, but that's not very often

12. What diaboloists have inspired you?
My brother obviously, and the woman who used to run the Circus Skills hobby at my school. Also the Mad French Posse with Diabology.
