Thanks i will check out the sites fore mentioned.  to answer above i am using two of the different weight and it doesnt seem to make much of a difference but that may be because there are quite similar is size and weight.  but it does come to be a pain when tricks are involed because you can only use the bigger of the two successfuly or with any intent to complete the manover.  So yeah thanks.

Hey Joko, there are some great threads going beyond the 2 diabolo shuffle in the "tricks and video archive" sticky at the top of the forum.
http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=149

I attached your thread to the most relevant one.

Does a difference in size and weight between the diabolos matter much? Im thinking of getting a new diabolo and wondering if it would work well with my current one.
http://www.diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=733 Should answer your questions about that.  If you think about it, trying to do anything that's supposed to use two or more objects at once is tricky if they aren't the same, like chopsticks.

I followed the tricks on 2diabolo.net and learned them near enough in the order they are in on the site. I learnt to start with a throw start, then learnt to start with a wrap, then learnt the rocket start. THen i learned to accelerate (long before i learned to correct) using warp accleration just once at first, then every other pass, then every pass. And somewhere in between all of that  i did corrections. I didn't rally think about learning corrections, i didn't spend a day learning to correct i just did it gradually while llearning to accelerate. For quite some time i could only correct one way.

um... alex... I can do transfers, ping pong, double sprinkler and many other things but I can't do mini columns... They are just starting so mini columns may not be the best thing to try....  Try cross stick sun sprinkler, over leg orbits or anything really.

Yeah i been looking through thoses sites above and the Videos how long have you guys been Diaboloing for, with two i mean?  ive been at about three weeks now, and havent got much to show for it yet.  But i have jumped forward with tips from thoses sites. I have been trying two high recently but they are always flying off in different directions. Is this because im throwing them too hard or just the way I start off, because im using a wraped start to begin with then moving straight into two high?

Move your non dom hand up and away from the shuffle.
Do some 1d orbits (and leg orbits) look how you change the paths.

First, see the PM I sent you.

Second, running 2d is a big step and you shouldn't expect everything to be perfect right away. It takes a fair amount of time to run 2d without problems.

Some people have some good advice in the starting and correcting 2d thread and it is probably worth a look even if you think you know how it works. Someone will say something in there that helps 2d click.

Woah.  Please try to use the spell check button, and try to type clearly.  Not everybody here has english as a first language, so it really doesn't help if you talk whatever kind of slang that was.  ANd have a look at the posting etiquette thread too.  Thanks.

Here's a thought:

Why not make the reply-thingy automatically spell-check before submitting the reply?

So, someone writes a reply, the spell-check automatically reads through it, and if they made any spelling mistakes- a pop-up comes confirming that they want to submit their current reply before editing it...?

Not the best explanation, but I'm tired so there ya' go  :P

Any more info you want on two High, probably the Two High Thread a good place to start

I'm probably missing the glaringly obvious here, but that link doesn't seem to work

is there a more recent two high thread? or another link?

You have to replace 'viewtopic.php?t=' with 'index.php?topic=' (both times without the quotes ofc), then it works.

I've only actually been PRACTICING 2D for a few days, that is, the time I spent trying to expand my skills. I'd been repeating the same stuff over for a while longer, but not trying to learn in that time.

Anyways, over the course of a couple 'days, I've nailed corrections, just today got good at sprinkler-suicides (All thanks to Sundia Carbons), learned suns in both directions, grinds, some slack-whips, sprinklers, wrap accelerations and developing Chinese accelerations.
Oh, and transfers.

It all isn't really that tough, it just takes determination and lack of frustration.

That left wrap is caused because you aren't unwrapping both diabolos from the sprinkler, just one. Either do a fan/transfer to get out of it, or work on exaggerating the unwrap motion to avoid the wrap entirely.
