Don't know if this trick exists or not...(suicide variation)

I made up a new trick today whilst experimenting with the right backside.

You go into the right backside and start crossing your arms (right under left) so the diabolo gets to open string.

You continue the clockwise movement of the diabolo and let go of the left handstick (actually on the right due to the crossed arms) like a normal Suicide.

Whilst the stick is swinging over, you hand the right handstick to the left hand and catch the falling handstickk with the right.

Any good? Been done before?

I quite like it! As far as I know it is an original trick. It is one of those tricks that make your think "of course! why didn't I think of that!". Thanks for sharing it.

dont pass the stick across and catch the suicide in the same hand that it started in, in a cross handed position. A little something i found (although i think its in one of Donalds books) in Sheffield whilst i was bored.

Yeah, I suppose that would be good if you wanted to link it to another backside trick.

Ok, still dunno if this is original, but if it is then it's called the Darkcide (On the 'dark' side of the string, plus my user; cheers seán_) and i'll try to get a video of it at some point.
