Ooh, how does that work.? Thats nice, thanks for sharing that with us.

BTW  Mike, is that tape, rubber, plastic tubing or paint on the sticks and why (if not just visability)?

Great!

I'll just go file that one in the "Other cool tricks I'll never be able to do" section of my computer then....
It takes 24 muscles to smile, 42 to frown, and only 4 to hit someone in the face. Luckily for you, I need the exercise.

Thats nice... what about if doing a knotstealing ending??
Not to open the "knot" from RH but closing it to a BW?

Btw... If you have any intresse my suicide (not normal) is a bit better than in that last video www.kolumbus.fi/diabolo/suncide1.avi

It is deco, the same stuff that you would find on juggling clubs.  Vanillatown Always performs with deco-ed wooden sticks.  It makes it much easer to see suicides and stick tricks.  Plus the reflective properties look wicked in the stage lights.

2D slackknot explaination
« Reply #10 on: December 14, 2004, 05:55:36 AM »
It will help to have the video play while you read this

In hopes that others will learn and expand upon this trick I have the explaination for the exit to the knot.  Obviously the hard part is throwing the knot.  (If anyone would like video of the 1D knot throw I can post that too)  After you have the knot thrown, you should be on easy street.  The exit is simple but hard to see in the video.  A good way to learn the exit is with 1D.  Throw the knot with the right hand,  then use a clockwise wrap around the axle with your left handstick.  Now simply slide the string off of the bottom of your right handstick.  

When you adapt that to 2D the sequence goes like this:
1.  Throw knot
2. Left handed clockwise back-wrap on free diabolo
3.  Carry the left hand diabolo over, then under the right hand diabolo
  (at this point the left hand diabolo should be free agian and the right hand diabolo should have the slack-knot and a clockwise wrap around it)
4. The final step is to slide the string off the bottom of your right handstick.


This explaination may be really good or really bad, I can't really test it on anyone locally.  Which is why I will freely answer any questions about the trick.

If there's already a topic for shut this one down, I couldn't find any

Does anyone can give an explanation or a good tutorial for this trick, I just can't do them with 2d  :?
