Thats just to do with the timing of when you move your hand away from the string. I had this problem when I first learnt them and it still happens occasionally. With practice and time that will eventually go.

Or you could do what i did and move your hand closer to the diabolo so that you get the string wrapped around and then you can reverse it under control (can produce some nice combinations).  Now i bring my hand back towards my body slightly so that there is no/very little chance of the stick hitting my hand.

I was working on mini-genocides today, and I couldn't figure out why I couldn't let go of the left stick and unwrap a right backwrap, until I saw that I was still throwing the left stick as if I had a left backwrap on it so it would always go around the wrong way. So I threw the stick the other way and bam, the stick swung around the diabolo flew off the diabolo, but missed the diabolo. It was still a great achievement for me! So I ended that practice on that good note.

 Any genocide where the diabolo is caught from above rather than below, so for a full overcide release later so the diabolo travels across the body and the string recaptures from above.
see 1.46 for a mini overcide and 2.13 for a string bounce mini overcide both by Spink (or 6.04 and 5.34 on the reverse count)

I'm sure you can find something on this rather than making a new topic.
But here's what I do anyway:
Follow the method for a normal right genocide up until where you let go of the right stick, then immediately grab the string with your right hand as it comes up, the bit between your hand and the right stick will whirl around in a smaller circle than with a genocide and then it's just practice to get it right.

Thanks Seán_'s great explanation about mini genocide, now I can do mini genocide :)
 but my mini genocide seems strange, after i let my right hand stick slip from my grip, and the string start to encircle the axle of the diabolo, the problem is sometimes the string left backwrap the diabolo, and sometiems the string right backwrap the diabolo, I don't know which one is correct.
I've read Chiok's great explanation about this problem:http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=64.45
but i am still not quite understand it, i don't know the reason why sometimes i left backwrap the diabolo and sometimes i right backwrap the diabolo.
Could anyone please help me?(i don't know whether it's too late to post it or not)

Thank you!

When doing a mini-geno you should bring your left hand closer to your body after the release and when the string hits the diabolo immediately let go of the string with your right hand.

This way the part of the string between the diabolo and the left stick should be angled towards your body and the flying stick should pass it from the front side always creating a frontwrap.

At least thats how I do it and it works...

Basically the right stick just flys between the left part of the the string and your body...

When creating a frontwrap it flys from the front of the string...

It doesn't matter which wrap it is if your only doing normal mini-g's but if you want to do continuous mini-g's you need to know which wrap is around the axle, because you don't have the time to look at it.

Thanks a lot, karatepekka. :D
Can i ask one more question? is there a way that I can control the kind of wrap--I mean when I want the mini genocide to end with the right backwrap and I can do it everytime. because the stick just fly so fast, i can't even see which way the stick will fly.

Thank you!

You can always get a frontwrap by doing as I told in my first post, but for backwrap I don't know I haven't really tried, but it should work if you keep your left hand further away from your body than your diabolo is. That way the stick should fly under your left arm rather than from the front of it, creating a backwrap.

I don't know if it works though I haven't tried... But it SHOULD

But there is a diffrent about the release of a normal mini gen and the continuous mini gen. You can't do continuous mini g's from a normal mini gen can you?
