is everyone here too advanced to have damaged themdelves just throwing and catching? I managed to land a very high throw directly onto my manhood. I was alone and cried silently to myself. Am I the only one?

Catching  the diabolo while pointing one stick to the axle doesn`t mean to point your own stick at it. Remember that, or you`ll be in a world of pain!  :twisted:

Ha! Damn Arjan, if I had a coffee at that time, I'd be wiping it off my screen.

Diabolo is rather exciting, isn't it?

Tell me about it, Chiok. Arjan was so rude at EJC at some point that it left me, John and the guys speechless! Actually, that was all we talked about the entire week! :P

Let`s not make this personal  :wink:  Or you can get injured by something else than just your diabolo  :twisted:

You we`re saying rude??  :roll:

The wounds on my arms from learning arm tricks are starting to fade now, although it does still look like I've tried to fight off a rabid housecat.

"Aha, yes, this trick is a personal favourite of mi-ARGH!"
My Diabolos are apple flavoured.

Hmm i got hit in the face by my carbon handstick after catching a quad genocide, the string wrapped and hit me in the face.  ;D
Also had a few near misses with organ grinds!
But my best one i spent a whole day trying chest high throws with a double pirouette and low catch, got myself so worked up i threw my diabolo on the floor, it bounced and hit me where it hurts ;) which made me more mad so i threw the whole lot as far away from me as i could, Needless to say holly trees are not nice to climb and untangle diabolo strings from  ;D And to make it worse it was a hot day and i was topless  >:(
Total damage for that day, Painfull groin region, scars all over upper body and a VERY dented pride!

I have had cuts on finger joints, scratches, bruises, etc...
the worst, though was when I ripped my thumbnail off from doing a leg trick.
This was all when I used a chinese yoyo, which has nice little holes in the side for fitting fingernails into...
Proves that diabolo>chinese yoyo!

I've got a solution for the blisters on fingers. Cycling gloves cover the joints and leave the rest of your fingers outside of the glove.
Behind your back is your front.

I was doing a very high toss and at the last moment the wind blew it into my chest and knocked the wind out of me. I also got many huge blisters on my hands. but now my hands are giant callises so I feel nothing on my hands now ^^

I was doing vertax/excalibur and I got a diabolo in my nose and once, when I threw it as high as I could, I misaligned the catch and it came down, full speed and landed behind my head and hit my back.

I've never done anything personally, but I've heard a story of a friend gashing his head open when he was attempting something, the diabolo got caught on the string and it coming up in contact with his head.

...I also wittnessed my best friend almost attempting the same thing today.

Do I need to tell you the rest? Suffice to say, I couldn't use my normal voice for hours! :'(
