Which tricks are cool now?
« on: June 29, 2021, 10:17:18 AM »
What are the cool tricks now? Are we still on the integrals and feed-the-sun combo boat? Any new trends?

These guys are amazing, only creative stuff. Very underrated. Even the PAO judges gave Luis the lowest points in creativity during the classification.
They need more coverage, this a flagrant case of underappreciated art. I get following so many different tweaks of whips and fans is arduous, but come on, do your homework! :P

---- More serious answer ----
To me, it seems that most fashion is the same as you left. 1D genocides. Sometimes it feels like if we were all secretly longing to play poi. And old players might feel forced to learn all the variants so kids don't laugh at them in conventions. I might be one of those.
The battle for 5 low was super intense last years, and I feel it is getting calmer. Probably people are creating tricks and storing to hit big before the next Top 20 diaboloists from 2021 from Chloe and The Diabolo Prince (Damian).
There is a real bunch of players exploring slacks in ultimate ways. Easier to follow than Langerz. This guy is gold
Takuto does everything:
The 3low tricks ladder is so deep that the rabbit gave up long ago. They are happily sailing forward, headed by Sebi and others, and creating an incomprehensible mass of 3d low tricks. You name it, 3d is the new 1d. But people in Asia don't come back to shuffle after FTS combos, disgraceful. I think it gives so much value to the already insanely good for its time with Feed The Suns (the guy with a mask and synchronous shuffle)
For high Damian claims it is quiet, people accumulating tricks I hope. Same bosses as before, Robin (seems less active), Ronnie, Jose Concha, Damian, Pieter (rather inactive), ... probably I miss very important ones.

One diabolo Body combos are also a bit down. Ivano is great at them. The Taiwan raising star

And vertax is, well, distance itself from the concept of rubbish as constant and far as possible. Mad stuff.
This guy is VeRy good:

Now please, everybody, correct and complete what I wrote, nice topic :)

So that thing Fernando is doing of turning the diabolo while catching releasing minigenocides is quite trendy now. It at least got to, or was initiated, in Asia.
Also Fernando has that family of fan variations that is a complete new trend. Problem is, it seems too hard that nobody follows it. Short like with Joona and Eljas. You could like the tricks, but make them, or evolve them... good luck with that.

What Ivano does, Guillaume with the popping dancing and so on. That is rather newish. Ah! Of course Willem as an amazing amount of body combos and creative stuff. It is gold!
