i got corrections and accelerations down pretty much but the only trick i can do constantly is a suicide!

whenever i exit a sprinkler one of my diabs has a left wrap, any suggestions
Or perhaps if you can already suicide you can do a suicideexit. Aaron Z´s advice are good otherwise. Jump the first diabolo out of the exit over the one with the wrap and then unwrap it with your left. This is the most basic way to exit that probably.

Leg stall? for me I get a nice slow shuffle, hold it at a reasonable height, pop one up and wide, bring the knee up so that the diabolo in the air will land after the knee makes contact with the string. I seem to recall that some people feel comfortable just bringing the leg forward in a goosestep but when I do it this way it doesn't feel as solid so I have to raise the knee..

that was a good explanation seán_. an easier way to get into it though to get the feeling at first would be;
1. right backwrap one diabolo
2. do a sticktrap on that side
3. put your knee in the middle
4. drop the sticktrap
5. re-right wrap the right diabolo
6. unwrap back into shuffle

YAY!
I have 2 diabolo corrections and accelerations down and I can consistently do a leg stall, hyperloop, and suns.  After I learned those tricks,  I kept trying new ones but to no avail.  I am wondering you guys could give me a few more tricks to work on at this level.
   Thanks.

When i learnt, i grinded one diabolo, pushed my leg into the string, then slipped the diabolo off the grind onto the string, then just took my leg away and shuffled.

I'm having trouble catching the diabolo in a wrap to do wrapped acceleration do you just do a normal throw in the shuffle or does it help to throw it a bit higher/lower left/right? I can do wrappped start so once I can learn to ctchit but also having trouble doing the similar trapeze stall on the dominant side

i've been doing 2 for 6 months now and i still cant do a good trapeze stall all the time on my dominant side, don't worry keep practicing and it'll come.
when you wrap it you wanna pop it off the string instead of letting it just go over. try popping it multiple times until you can see when it kinda slows down at one spot in the air. thats what i did to learn it :)
