Trick list


One Diabolo:


Backside: Refers to the diabolo being on the backside of the string, a double unwrap will result in the diabolo being on the darkside of the string.

Grabs: Is to stop the diabolo spinning, and have it isolated by a bodypart or stick.

Grinds: To have the diabolo spinning on something other than the string, most commonly sticks or fingers.

Orbits: To have the diabolo throw around body parts and caught again: i.e. orbiting the body.

Magic Knots: Wraps and Unwraps around points other then the diabolo: i.e. Sticks, Fingers.

Slackwhips: Throwing loops of slack string around the diabolo, sticks or strings. Commonly used to make string figures.

Stick releases: To throw one or more sticks and catch them again, usually around the Diabolo(s). Also known as suicides.

Suns: To move the Diabolo in a (usually) circlular motion around or between the sticks.

Vertax: Having the diabolo on the horizontal plane. The name is derived from the diabolos axle being verticle eg. VERTicleAXle. Also known as Excalibur.

Whips: To catch the diabolo in a whipping motion, often in one hand. A full string slack whip.

Wraps: To wrap the string around the diabolos axle. Four main ways:
Right handed backwrap is where the string is wrapped around the near cup with the right hand;
Left handed backwrap is where the string is wrapped around the near cup with the left hand;
Right hand front wrap is where the string is wrapped around the far cup with the right hand - has the same effect as a Left handed backwrap;
Left hand front wrap is where the string is wrapped around the far cup with the left hand - has the same effect as a Right handed backwrap



Two Diabolo:

Anti shuffle: Same as your shuffle, but in different direction.   (Right handed = Anti clockwise    Left handed = Clockwise)

Anti-Suicide: A wrap is placed on the diabolo and throw the stick the opposite way you would a normal suicide (upwards and towards your non-dominant hand).

Fan: A fan can be seen as a continuous (no beat) antisun. There are many variations such as C-fan and S-fan. Other tricks such as 360's, swings and sprinklers can be performed in a fan.

Mini Columns: Each diabolo pops straight up and down a small height from the string.  Side by side. No diabolos swap sides.

Shuffle: Basic 2 diabolo motion, each moving in a circular motion around each other. If you're right handed the diabolos should be moving clockwise and counterclockwise for left handed.

Sprinkler: Wrap both diabolos in one wrap. It's a 2 diabolo shuffle inside a large wrap.  Can be done with any wrap. Also more than one wrap can be used. Known as Double, Triple, Quadruple (etc) Sprinklers. Also known as a hyperloop.

Stalls: Each diabolo is separated by string, sticks, legs, arms or other body parts that stops the diabolos from shuffling. A stall can also be created by a knot or a twist in the string.

Vortex: A Vortex is using the motion of diabolo to place a wrap and/or unwrap another diabolo. Many variations that are also known as transfers

Nice one... I wonder what seán will think of it ;D.

Maybe you should add that LHBW = RHFW, RHBW = LHFW. Also slack suicides.

I think this is a good idea. I do feel there's still a lot of jargon that needs to be teased out (which I've spent a few minutes unsuccessfully trying to do) so that it's completely understandable to a beginner, but it's a good start.

I did?
Wraps: To wrap the string around the diabolos axle. four main ways:
Right handed backwrap is where the string is wrapped around the near cup with the right hand;
Left handed backwrap is where the string is wrapped around the near cup with the left hand;
Right hand front wrap is where the string is wrapped around the far cup with the right hand - has the same effect as a Left handed backwrap
Left hand front wrap is where the string is wrapped around the far cup with the left hand - has the same effect as a Right handed backwrap

Magic knot could be just knot, not too much magic in those :)
Maybe you could also drop the hand from RHBW's, i think it's useless.
Othervice nice job.

I think it's said more "Magic Knots" then just a Knot.

You're saying there is no difference between left hand backwrap and right hand backwrap?

Example: You were explaining to some how to enter a fan with a LHBW, If you just said backwrap..They wouldn't know which side you ment..etc.  If that makes sense ^_^


Thanks.

Well, if you think magic is in the right place there...
But the other thing, i meant to drop the HAND, not left or right, please read my post. It could be said like "left backwrap" as i think there will be quite small number of people trying to do the wrap with legs or nose.  ::)

I have been talking with William about it, I think it's a good idea.
Sorting out the order and putting some links to tutorials etc might be handy.

No, I said LHBW = RHFW, as in it is the same wrap done by different hands.
I believe a magic knot is bringing a stick over and under a diabolo in equal amounts, all released into nothing (as Jake said). A knot could be anything; any mount, any wrap.

I'll also search for good tutourials or videos for each trick, Or even film small clips of each trick if you guys think it would help.

BackSide: Refers to the diabolo being on the backside of the string, A double unwrap will result in the diabolo being on the darkside of the string.

I don't think that clarifies the trick very much, since you describe the term by using the term itself in the definition. You know, a string doesn't really have sides. Maybe describing the way the string goes around the axle and noting the also the sticks.

Um, like "A position where string goes from righthand stick on over the axle to the lefthand side of it, and from there under it, to lefthand stick over the right side of the axle."

That sounds quite bad. Backside is the simplest thing, but a hard one to explain..

Other than that, this seems pretty good. Nice work and keep adding stuff to it.

Or just crossed string.
And I was under the impression that backside and darkside are one and the same.

Hey, I was thinking about adding a notation to make 2d high  etc easier my idea would be:

2h, or 2dh for 2 diabolos high
3h, or 3dh for 2 diabolos high
1v, or 1dv for 1 diabolo vertical
etc.
etc.
Diabolo Acquired - Thurday, 2/08/07
Vertax Skill Acquired - Thursday, 4/12/07
2 Diabolo Skill Acquired - Tuesday, 5/29/07
3 Diabolo Skill Acquired - Eh, No?
