Tony's really something, isn't he? Inspires me to work on my high more.

Ah, and I'd also like to thank Martijn for sharing. Thanks!

Sick! Does he 'just' work on high stuff now?

There's little else to say really...

Somebody's been practicing. Wow. It's easy to lose sight of how hard this stuff really is.

It's amazing but... it's not a difficulty I can really relate to. I prefer his acro/diabolo fusions with 1 and 2 diabolos.

What????

So you're saying that doing diabolos high is not diabolo. Its still diabolo, its just a different group within the possibilities that diabolo holds. It's still making use of the fact that it spins and is on a string, and uses handsticks; all these things make it possible to throw so highly and accurately.

If you don't prefer it that's fine but it's an essential part of what diabolo is. It is really diabolo; he's doing something with some diabolos...

That makes no sense...

Ha! Even the master of creativity says so ;D

I've heard some lame statements about technical juggling in my life, but yours Beni... ;) Come on, you know better than that.

Oops yeah, just read back on my post... it was a little stupid. Disgruntled from coursework I guess.
What I meant was that watching a video of lots of 3, 4 and 5 high sort of makes it look easy to me. It's the same with juggling videos — if I watch a 5 minute video of juggling by the end a 5 ball mills mess doesn't amaze me at all, despite the fact that I'm not even close to that level of skill.
Tony has shown us that all this is possible, but I can't aspire to learning 5 high. I respect him as an immensely hard working and creative performer, and I guess I'm just annoyed that something like this doesn't wow me as much as a fancy 1d integral.
Some of my post was just stupid, I was tired and angry and in a rush. I'm so ashamed I think I'll edit it.
MY BAD.

I get Beni's point

I do a lot of surfing and i enjoy watching surf videos where people are surfing waves like the ones I ride or at least in the same league.
I have a very short attention span for watching people surfing massive waves even though they are risking there lives and are hugely talented. i appreciate there commitment courage and skill but I just cant relate to it so it doesn't really inspire me.

Huge respect to all who push the  limits and thoes who push their own limits

That was absolutely beautiful.  His four was solid but the siteswaps.  So beautiful, 7531, repeated 4 ups!, 62, 53, 60, 5 high oh man.  I really wish I had my 3 high better but it's coming along nicely.  I would love to try some of these siteswaps.
