Hell yea im racking up the first 2d tricks.

left sun and double
hook stall
alternating trapeze stalls
arm stall
sprinkler (just about)

all today
and other various variations of those tricks one after the other.

sounds pretty lame compared to the stuff people are coming up with now but you gotta start somewhere so woo hoo.

Sounds like you just had 'the day' Don :)

For myself, 2d with fire diabolos for the first time (allways helps to try something for the first time in front on an audience), no tricks yet unless you count backwraps.

441 for the first time ever in high. I still can't get more than about 15 catches but if i just try to get the 441 in i can do it and carry on afterwards. Did it 3 times today.

And believe it or not i did 3 ott in 4 low. Not very impressive but it was definately 4 low. I think it is possible but the rotation must be bigger, i did mine too small and i had a collision after 3 ott.  I have winesses who all agree that i was actually doing 4 low even if only for a second or 2. I swear to god this is true. I am determined to do this. I will keep trying.

If you can`t really do 3 high, then how did you start 4 low? Because I think people have the closest chance to "do 4 low" when going from 4 high into a lower pattern.

My friend threw one in to me. I know it sounds dumb, someone that can't do 3 high trying to do 4 low. But i really did it.
Fair enough, i agree it doesn't really count as "doing 4 low" but its a start. Anyone who has learnt 2 or 3 knows that at first you can only do 2 or 3 catches.

If you did it from (and to) and open string then it was a fan. If you hopped it over on to the back of the string (and had to use some funky exit), then it was an s-fan.

3 high is getting easier, already got 10 catches with clean finishes 3 times already. And 3 low is having some real slow progress, but it is getting better too. I am also getting a routine together for a "talent show" type thing at my school that I am hoping to get into. Also, i learned that 2 diabolo isolation stuff where you have a hand stall on both and they get swung around kinda like raving.  :D

Ah you say that.  I'm really starting to get annoyed at the chair in my room.  The amount of times my aluminium sticks have hit the back of the chair during a minigenocide, a suicide or the such is innumerable.  As such my lightshade has bore the brunt of it as I kinda ripped it in two with the swinging stick.

Being a rented room, I taped it up and changed it with one in the hallway.  God bless Ikea and their uniformity.

(btw, I've learnt to do that trapeze over the head jump over 2D isolation that I've learnt from -Fred- and Trash)

Sprinkler Suicide release oo yea.

Is there any way of holding a sprinkler longer from a left back wrap. Cos mine are really short at the moment.

It'll run for longer if you get the diabolos spinning really quickly.  Sounds so obvious, but I was surprised at the difference it makes.
