Failed Sprinkler Exit
« on: August 21, 2008, 01:39:52 PM »
Hello.

I've been practicing multiple sprinklers recently, and one very frustrating problem that keeps coming up is that when I try to exit the last sprinkler (Right Front-Unwrap from a Left Backwrap entry) I sometimes end up with a strange knot.

When this happens, one diabolo is suspended above the other, caught in a small tangle of string while the other sits beneath it on an open loop of string.

Could somebody please explain why this happens?

You've unwrapped one but not the other, right? The one in the triangle is actually sitting in a twist of string I think. Sometimes it helps to put the diabolos down on the floor and try and work out what could be happening in slow motion.

Explaining wraps through text is horrible I find. Is it similar to the one in Makky's FEDC routine?

I've unwrapped one, but not the other as Sean said.

I either get this wrap, or get a left backwrap on one when I fail an exit.

I might take a picture of the wrap if I can get it.

Exagerate (sp) the motion, make the circle bigger when you unwrap it

Suicide exits make it way easier.
