It is all just practise, but if the diabolo is going off balance then you probably don't have enough speed, by the way what kind of suicide are you trying to do?

Just the basic chinese suicide =/ Its too bad too, i probaly couldve had a lot more down by now, but in six years of diablo, I didn't know anymore then just basic throws and catches till about 6 months earlier, after seeing some inspiration, and found diabolotricks.com

Swing as if you were to do a sun, release the stick at "9 o'clock". CATCH!

Will_ thats great advice for a regular suicide ;)

I find one thing that helps on nearly all suicides is to have the stick you release in line with the string and to release/swing that stick also in line with the string.

For regular suicides having the stick you hold in line also helps but for Chinese suicides you want to keep the stick that you are holding pointing straight forward, if you don't the triangle of string grows, hits the cups and causes the diabolo to tip.

And a small little tip that I never seem to learn: Watch the stick! I never watch the stick, I always watch the diabolo. How stupid can someone be?

Well, i think it might be the sticks im using, there big wooden sticks, and a bit heavy compared to most diablos, without push, i seem to drop them and they flail, but im getting aluminum sticks soon, so that might help.

Look at this. I know it's a bit of a ugly tutorial, but it's great to learn a normal chinese suicide with!

To do infinite slowcide what you need to do is rewrap the diabolo as the wrap on the diabolo is taken off. As you rewrap the diabolo you should lift up about 80% of the time, and then quickly go around the diabolo again.

When u let go of the stick, i feel it's better to put a bit of force on it, it makes the stick going smooth and in a better looking circle

When I was learning I found that helped a bit now I just let go my stick. So when you are learning give the stick a bit of force but not a lot.
