If someone ever finishes learning, perhaps they'll be able to tell you.

Have a look at the 3 diabolo threads linked to here: http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=149.0    You'll be able to see some people's progress reports on learning three there.  It's impossible to say how long it takes.  It depends on the time you put into it, the way you approach it and think about it, how ready you are for it, etc.

I just don't get why people always keep asking how long something is going to take. Just go out and diabolo! You can count the days you practice, but it doesn't make it any faster.

You know, Vitamin Guy, I think it's just a product of how busy people are and have to have things that fit into tiny pockets of space. Like how music is delivered on iTunes so you can buy just the songs you like, rather than being forced to sit down and listen to an album. Or how everything is calculated, instead of looking at a roadmap and going (or guessing), you can go to google maps and have them tell you exactly how long it's gonna take.

So in this case, it might be one of those, "it takes a year? pfff" and then he gives up. Or maybe he was hoping for like a month or a week or something.

Or maybe he was just curious about what other people thought. Who knows.

Well, I learned it in about 10 months.  Most my progress was made in the summer because I was able to concentrate on it alot.  Sander however got it working about 3 months?  Dunno it really varies.
So I guess around 3-10 months?

I've learned it in 3 months, but then you only have a shuffel. If you have it very solid you can learn tricks

HaHaHa - or a LOT longer! - I had the wrap start nailed before you did Josh - that bit only took me 3 weeks to get about 90% solid - the rest however has taken the best part of a year and ................. well lets just say I still have a solid wrap start!!

Personally, about 1 year. I ve got 3 years of diabolos, so 1/3...I think it's good. It is frustation for myself...You know, you think you have it, but no  :-\

But now I ve got it, with many work, but I ve got it :).

I think it is question of time and will, yes, will :).

Hey Josh - I think you mis-understood me - I was just comenting on the fact that your 3-10 months statement may lead people to think that it should take them between 3 and 10 months to learn and some people may be discouraged if they have not got it by 10 months of trying where the reality is that some people may take a lot LOT longer (if ever).  I know some people learn stuff way faster than others (I know of at least one person that had 3 low of 50+ott in less than 2 months of first trying - others take years but may be just as good or better in the long run).

So I think the timescale should be 2 months - never.

A piece of string is twice half its length

As for me it took me a year to learn 3d. But thats just to get 20 ott. I find it incredible that people get it in 3 months, but well done to them. Then again it took me a year to learn 2d so....
 Its a very variable thing, theres no guidline amount of time to learn any one thing in, its just comes to you when it does, but no doubt, if you keep at something, you will eventually get it.
