Beni, well yeah. I hardly do slacks currently so i don't know what that
crossed armed slack whip does. But like i said to the same figure you
can get by doing inverse (or therefore anything that can be substituted
by for inverse).

For the picture i did plain inverse with my right hand. And then i just put
my "free stick" in the middle of the knot and took the two nearest strings
on the "free stick". There you go, low and behold the star. And it opens
from the outside.



So do this with good technique and some style in stage and you're not doomed.

IMO lacerations are when you do an inverse trapeze, then throw the diabolo up into the left string and when it is up in the air (darksided) you 'lacerate' by moving the right hand stick to the left of the string and trapeze motion it so that it is in a fritz release.
make sense?
i know what you mean but technically this is not a laceration. watch the vid that nick posted and you'll see what he means.

^ langer please correct me if im wrong (i know u will) but as its a diabolo trick it can be called whatever? as the trick that ben is talking about cannot be performed on a yoyo? so its a seperate thing alltogather.

but the name stems from a false interpritation of laceration, which was nicks point and i'm sticking with nick i'm afraid.

i was wrong so i think everyone else should admit defeat too.

Marko: With Nick's permission I can send you the video, or if it's still up you can watch it online.  I think Nick took it down though.
Mofro: Ben's trick can be done on a yoyo. Check out the "absolute zero" link. Nick also pmed me a link to a classic yoyo laceration video a while back... I deleted the message d'oh.

I think you can simulate the classic laceration trick with two sticks in the right hand. You just whip the string around your left hand fingers making a trapeze. This is sort of 3rdB as you are making a trapeze without any need for the diabolo to move.

Beni, cool. Just send a private message and link for that video. It's
hard to know how things are from the picture. But yea, i doesn't sound
like very handy knot if it doesn't open. It's like doing overhand knot to
your diabolo, no use in doing that. So i'll be again waiting for a video from
you Beni ;)
