GO THE STRING CLIMB!!

Cool stuff! Nice crowd performing then getting into the more tech stuff! Really good! Two in one hand- always a pleaser ;) Double genocide good enough for stage is awesome!

As for the second video- YouTube says its not online yet? Edit: Its working now. Awesome stuff!

Good stuff! Can't wait to see you at circus fest!

The Integral to genocide lovely move*. Good to see you giving the crowd what they want (and making them realise what they want).

That looked like a really tight area to work with in the second video Jester, I enjoyed watching those vids.

I know this sounds really simple, but I really liked the effect the stripes of your sticks gave on the black background. Did you do that on purpose, or was it just lucky?

I see you were using Harlequins. Gotta be painful with all that weight (I can't use them anymore)

*will be stealing that intregal to genocide move now  ;D

the stripped sticks are an idea i got off this site somewhere

harlequins ARE my diabolo of choice

integral to genocide to stick release (as done in 2nd vid) is definitly my drop trick

i'm calling that sequence the apocalacide  :)

tight space, u better believe it, but thank goodness for all the excalibur living room practice which fine tunes the control

cheers guys
I went on to preform a slightly updated version of this at the National circus conference of australia and have been slowly tweaking and changing the routine ever since
do it, do it ,do it, DO IT!

Nice performance, I was dead bored tbh till the integral to genocide, lol, awesome trick.
Still wont get you away from the fact that harlequins suck!
But I suppose personal preference is a funny thing.

ps: *whispers* Harlequins suck. Nuff sed
Out of focus lovin', Mark_BMC you legend!

Yeah Harlequins aren't that bad although they aren't my first pick. But think about this- When you start practising 3 (Or 4 ;) ) high you would come and absolute tank  :P

Nice performance. It's good the way you made the audience know what they wanted as sean_ said. The gasps at the string climb made me smile, there aren't many routines in which you get a string climb and an integral (or a double excalibur genocide.

harlequnis ar just what ive always used, i own some finese G2's but i can't handle the lightness

you must have string climb its the law also note high throw at beggining of routine obligitoryness

extra weight = spins longer and hyperloop has more inertia so is more stable

working on 3 low at the moment doesn't, feel like a problem

used to hurt in my first couple of years of diabolo but i got over it

mabye the rest of the world is just wussy

:p

do it, do it ,do it, DO IT!

High throw comes mid to later for gp in my mind. Throw high, Higher, Higher with behind the back catch...present... step forward, kick the knickers and hotel room keys of the stage, wait for the bouncers to remove anybody who has stormed the stage. only then are they ready for 2d ;)

What is the trick you are doing at 45 seconds, it doesn't look hard but it looks neat. How do you do it?
By the way cool videos.

no no diabolo class :(

i knew quite a bit more diabolo than our diabolo tuter

45 seconeds in the first vidio?
put your arms into "around one arm" position and then do a wrap catch with your non driving stick let the diabolo carry round and over your driving stick then pop it off the string rinse and repeat
do it, do it ,do it, DO IT!
