2d stall on string (was Random tricks help)
« on: May 08, 2005, 06:31:33 PM »
I thought it would make more sense to have 1 topic for lots of tircks than starting a new topic, every time some-one needs help for a different trick.
So any trouble with any tricks, just ask here and someone will answer.


I've been having trouble with the trick that Baptiste (and eric) do on diabology where they just have 2 diabolos on the string not moving at all or doing pig pong. They just stay still. Bapiste enters it from a stall over his leg and Eric does some weird knot.  When i do it they roll and hit each other.

Any help? :D

A possible problem with that idea is that it makes it difficult in the future for people to find info on different tricks combined within a single thread. best bet is to create a new thread for tricks that havent allready been covered  (or dont relate to a trick allready covered)

Now back to the trick. Sean told me once he had a really hard time getting this trick. heres the secret ;)
get one spinning well, turn around 180, sort hands out, start the second. so you have the diabolos spinning in opppsoite directions, they wont collide then.

took me a while to figure out, but the video of Takahiro's performance from a while back shows him spinning one diabolo the wrong way and then turning round, that's what did it for me. I dont remember Baptiste doing it, i'll have to take a look-see

Baptiste does do it in Diabology. Maybe the EJC section? I can't remember.

Here's a video I made in the distant past of this trick:

Took me a month to figure it out.  :oops:

My favourite entry is Yabe's UFO grind of one diabolo 180 degrees.
