Hi guys,

I filmed this over the last 2 years and after realising that I will only be able to practice 5 diabolos assisted once before EJC 2016 I decided that I may as well post it publicly, the video ends abruptly to symbolise how this is a work in progress that is to be continued (or because I had this video and I couldn't be asked to edit another one better, whatever)

I hope people appreciate the music which I chose, it might remind some of you of a certain other diaboloist for whom Folkert threw diabolos in *cough* Dodson *cough*
Also, sorry the the quality of my personal best, it's a GoPro Hero 4 (I promise!) but it was filmed at 120fps so the horrible lighting makes the image very grainy when played back at 30 :-|

Not that I didn't know, but this video emphasises how much work goes in to nailing a skill like this. Crack on!

What the heeelll duuude!  :o
At 0:53 you actually have a really stable 5D low shuffle... That looked SO insane!
Now I really have to say, 5D low is so possible. Even though 4D low is super-damn-crazy hard.
Keep it up dude!  :-D

PS: I wanna see the first 5 low self start someday :P

Crazyness. At 3D a while back I thought the limit was reached. At 4D surely this must be it...then you go and film this. Looking really smooth at points too. The 64 I don't even... :o

Just a reply not intended to take away focus from Ronnies awesome video/achievement but this looks promising for a self start (4 minutes in):

Thanks for showing me this video, this guy is amazing!
And this actually looks like a really promising 5D low self start! Still, he didn't got it :-X
PS: Did you ever try this @Ronnie?

Thanks for that video Diabolo88. Trying that on stage...

Just tell us how many diabolos are not spinning before your self start, Ronnie. To have some hype :)

They are all spinning  ;)

P.S It is a different one to the one I was working on back in EJC 2014, after a year of trying that one I gave up on it, this one might still work once in a thousand times but at least it's more than never

Can I guess...hand + leg stall then stopover right handstall into 3D shuffle with left handstall still holding the fourth then grab fifth and hover start like 4D but with fifth ready to go in from the left? Am I close? Very curious. :)

Kinda close ^^ , the problem with that start is that in order to shuffle 3 in the 4D hover the left hand needs to move up and down which would screw up the one in the left hand

Won't take another guess save my curiosity for the next vid. :)
