"42" Help!!! (with video)
« on: February 05, 2005, 04:13:54 PM »
Hi !!

Now my 3 low is getting better, I try to do a "42" in the 3 shuffle.
However it's not that easy. everytime i want to throw a "4", the diabolo go far away to my left.
Did it happen to somebody else?
what must i do to avoid that?
I filmed me this afternoon to show you what exactly happens: here (right click, save under... (it's mpeg format))

Thanks a lot if you can advice me.

see you

Hi Vincent,

You've obviously been doing a bit of practice since I last saw you!  Are you back in France now?

Anyway, yes, I know exactly what you mean.  However, whenever I've tried to do it, it's always flied out to the right, not the left.

Hi Guy

Yes, i'm back to Bordeaux (there's a really good juggling club here too, with Priam, Codfish, and many others). And you, are you still in your "Yoyo-period"? (and Aza must have an amazing level by the time)

Anywy, the one i wanna throw higher go to the right and only the next one fly out to the left actually. (I understood it later)

Not gonna be as helpful as Fred or Sean, but here's my two cents:

If your doing a synchronous shuffle, I can't help; watch trash in diabology. If asynchronous, use your right hand less and left hand more, making your pattern more of a circle. Once you do this, just pulling up harder makes it go exactly where you want. Hope that was helpful :D

Your 3 diabolo pattern is interesting. It looks like somewhere between synchronous and asynchronous (a sign of the future, I think, when we will no longer talk about synchronous and asynchronous, people will do whatever works for whatever trick they are doing, just like with 2 diabolos now).

To me, it looks like the diabolo you tried to throw the 4 with actually went to your right and then the next diabolo missed your string and went to the left.

I would try thinking about lifting your left hand earlier in the pattern than normal to throw the 4. Maybe also think about lifting your left hand straight up or even a bit off to the left. If it still goes to the right lift your left hand off to the left even more.

Also, have you tried 441? I find that much easier.

Good luck! I look forward to seeing a video of your 42. :)
