Thanks.

Hey thanks for that :P
And im trying alot right now and its got alot better, letting go at about 3oclock and keeping my sticks inline with the diabolo but now i keep catching at the tips of the string coming out of the diabolo so... im just missing the sticks by next to nothing! :<

Please pardon my ignorance but whats a Duicide?

I wish some one could enlighten me, you see I'm very bad at some of the trick names in English you see as I am from Malaysia and I learnt it in Mandarin...

Sorry to derail this thread though.

A duicide is when you swing the diabolo to the right and let go of both sticks. This is a tutorial I found for it, although he refers to it as a jamicide. I think it's the same thing though:

Sometimes referred to as a no-handed suicide as well. There are 2 ways I know of doing the trick. Easy and harder (i call it harder instead of hard becuase i personally find them both simple).
The easy way is whip the diabolo and don't let go till it swings back foward. The harder way is to let go of both sticks on the first swing. Another tip when throwing is don't just let go of the sticks. Throw your sticks up while pushing down slightly. Too much force will give you many roations (which can be cool to learn it properly).
Once you get good you can also do 360s, 720s etc while the diabolo is in the air.
Sorry if that sounds confusing, if you want i could make a video?

Hope that helps!  :-D

i'd love to see a video of it because my duicide is still not good enough to do a behind the back catch

Oh I see...but I do that trick on the right side...is the one what William Lin always does right? Then he do a 360 while it's in mid air.

i tried some duicide to behind the back catch and they are not to difficult but the only problem is one of the two sticks I always catch the string so thats anoying and its cold outside so when i get hit by the sticks  :)

If you release in the direction your non dominant hand (so not the way most people release), the sticks often swap due to the diabolos spin so you get a wrap, which can be either a good or a bad thing.
Generally with the sticks, if you've guided them through the swing carefully and let go gently, then the sticks will keep position relative to each other.

There's a way of 'knitting' your sticks together if you want to keep them neat for the Chinese style big duicide throw to kneeling/smiling finish.
