are you talking multiple trapeze slacks? if so then aim for different points(front and back cup of diabolo, tip of either stick, fingers etc) then you'll get some nice webs.

if not then try chops which is great fun:D

Variations on tricks are best made by self experimentation. Unless you ask for a specific tricks it's kinda hard to help you. There are quite a few knotty trapezey tricks to be found. For some inspiration have a look at some videos, take some ideas from then and see what you can do with them. Watch some of LaNgErZ' videos in slow motion in VLC, there are plenty of tricks to be explored in those. -I'm not suggesting that the tricks in those are purely remixed trapezes, there's a lot more going on than that, but they are a good place to start with these sort of tricks.

If you find a variation you need help with; post it here and we can help.

Good luck!

i think that the most advanced way to get into a trapeze is a slack, but its harder to get out of without the use of lamecides or cradles
can't believe its not butter

Thats only if its not actually a trapeze but something that looks like one.
You can get into a proper trapeze with a slack with some know-how.

Yup, c-whip/overwhip. Yeah if it needs a lamicide or cradle then you haven't got a trapeze...

chops are (correct me if im wrong)
dominant hand trapeze
pop the diabolo up
nondominant hand trapeze
this is a terrible explanation someone please do a better one. i think i did a single chop, a 2d version anyways on the funtys house video around 2.35?.... absolutely no help.

Thanks for the attempt, but I really hope that's not quite it, it just sounds like alternating trapezes at the moment.

Examples, anyone?

It's not really alternating trapezes. You put the diabolo in a trapeze on one side, throw it straight up out of the trapeze so that the diabolo has a wrap on the axle and then chop the other stick into the string and under the diabolo. You will land the diabolo in something that looks like a trapeze on the other handstick, but with a twist from a sun.

I can't really think of a diabolo video with it in. If you're not sure what I mean by "chop the other stick into the string", try watching this video of a yo-yo trick called "Eli Hop Chops". Chops are the parts where Jack pops the yo-yo up into the air and then cuts his finger under the yo-yo, catching the string and landing back in a trapeze.
