continuous mini-g's
« on: August 10, 2007, 05:16:35 PM »
Hi,

I saw the video of seán_ (http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=3200.0) and I thougt: "Wow, how does this gread trick work?". So I went out and tried it, but I didn't get it.

Well, now my question:
How can I swing my stick around the Diabolo, like seán_ did it? Is there an tuturial? What's the name of this trick?

If you are talking about the continuous mini-g's then how I do them is I put it on a darkside, wrap the diabolo, and let go of the right stick. Then just catch the stick and stop. Once you are good at that try to do it from a left hand darkside. THis time drop the left stick and as it is unwrapping switch the right stick to the left hand. Once you can do that then as you catch the stick drop the other one and switch hands. And keep doing that. If you mean the overcide then I think the easiest way to do a basic on of those is to do a normal suicide but catch the string. Wrap it around the diabolo and recatch it while it is wrapped. Then rethrow the stick so that it is swinging in the other direction, as it comes off pop the diabolo up and catcfh it with the string.

I have a problem. I searched in the forum and in a dictionary, but I didn't find out. What exactly do you mean with "darkside"?

I have another problem  :-[   When I let the right stick go, the diabolo and the stick fall on the floor. I tryed it in diffrent speed levels, but when it's very fast the string furl, when it's very slow the stick falls.
What do I have to change, so that the trick works?

I'm guessing that you're not pulling hard enough when doing a mini-genocide, so that's why the stick and your diabolo go *plop*

You need to do more than just let the stick go ;), give it a bit of a tug and swing to get the diabolo to jump up enough to get caught on the string again.

Here's a continuous mini-geno's tutorial that Tim Ellis created

Yeha! The trick works!  ;D ;D ;D

I can do it one time. When I try to do it more times serial, the stick get faster and faster and the string wrap around the Diabolo very often before it falls on the floor. I think my string is to long. It is as long as it was, when I bought it (226 cm / 7.4 foot). How long should it be and how long is your string respectivly?

you use a 7.4ft string?!  :o

mines 5"2 and i still think its long

Re: continuous mini-g's

wow...7.4 feet string, that is long. usually what is good is you measure the string from the ground to your chin to mouth area. or you can measure arm length wise.

Do you mean with or without the sticks? My string with sticks (the string goes thru the sticks) is 226cm / 7.4 foot. Every stick is 41cm / 1.35 foot long. So the string between the sticks is 144 cm /  4.7 foot long.
I myself am 180 cm / 5.9 foot big. So the string without sticks don't goes to my chin. :-\

OK, the trick works now  ;D (for all, who don't belive me: here's a video http://felix.weidinger.net/diabolo/g.avi (sorry for the sound in the backround))

So tell me, what is the best step to do next? ??? I will learn to throw one stick away and catch the other.

It is not continuous mini gonocide but it is infinite suicide.
