Many thanks Sean! I've seen that trick in many videos, but never made the connection.

Why don't you go to the DSSS and try it?

^OK, finally learnt 2D Eiffel fairly solid + new slackcombo from it yesterday. Now could you please cut me some slack (oh the hilarity of that pun) and say what it means :-D. It´s driving me insane not knowing.

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 ^_^

It's the trick d'jour... It's the family of suicides where basically you hold the string and both sticks swing. A well known one is a 'Tomicide' search for that on youtube.
Somebody will be along in a bit with some video examples no doubt.

Cups - The outer bell shaped shells that make up the majority of the diabolo, made in a plastic or rubber material.

Hubs - The inner cones that the cups attach to, made in plastic or metal.

Axle - The bit in the middle that string sits under.

Is there a preferred way of writing fts combinations? Wondering because someone (think it was GuiZ) recently posted in the "I just learnt" thread about having learnt 1-2 fts but it was hard to know if this was 2D or 3D until it was actually written out.

Would you write 2D 1-2, or maybe the 2D pattern is within parenthesis (2) or maybe there is some other way? Is it considered standard to write out fts all the time?

And how are you supposed to write the siteswaps that are taken down from high or taken down and then back up again? I still can´t figure out the siteswap for these and they don´t work in DSSS but is there a standard way of marking in writing that the pattern moves between high-low in the middle of the combo?
