I performed at the Lausanne circus festival with Double Face in 1999, and yes, there was a big difference between the promo image and the actual act.  I mentioned them as they were the first "Western" act that I could think of who were performing four high.

As for four high solo, without being "fed", then yes, Alex (Xelo) was probably the first.  Sad that he is no longer with us...

Well, I wasn't really worrying too much about self starts vs. assisted starts. Here's where I was starting from.

First to do five diabolos high.Tony Frebourg
First to do five diabolos low. Robin Spinelli (2013)
First to do a five diabolo pirouette. Tony Frebourg 2010

So, not caring about self or assisted starts and wanting qualifies, what can we agree on? I don't have to have answers to all of the categories, but at least a few would be good.
