Question about a trick
« on: September 14, 2008, 10:07:46 AM »
Hello im new to this forum and im not sure if I am posting something that has been posted before(sorry if i have). I recently purchased a new book called 'Diabolo 2: Crazy cradles and baffling body moves' by Donald Grant and I learnt how to do the trick called 'rip off'. I went on to the next page and found out how to do 'magic knot' and then it turned out they are done exactly the same. Am i doing something wrong or are they supposed to be done the same? ???

Thanks :)

Welcome Hyun,
I don't have those books with me right now - I lent them to a friend a couple years ago and still need to get them back. Not sure what the "rip off" refers to. Maybe someone else has a copy, or if you're lucky, the man himself might notice this thread.

With the rip off, the diabolo ends up on the backside of the string - if you just let the string slip off your sticks the diabolo will fall to the floor.
The Magic knot, when you slip the string off the sticks, the diabolo remains on the string.

Hope this helps.
