Thanks for all the nice comments  :)

That was far more than slackisfactory! 4:28 was phenomenal. Loved the back and forth finger grinds with 2d earlier too. You've definitely taken it to a new level.

Lovely forest at 3:08. Did you dye your flys or are those new light purple coloured ones? Or are they triple bearing? They look lavender coloured and I don't recognize it.

I think I've been waiting about 3 years for a comment like that! As for the diabs they are standard Fly's and that's their original colour. Thanks Sean.

Jem you idiot! I've been taking medication for an hour and a half and I still haven't fully recovered from the shock and pure amazement this video has caused! But somehow, I'm still looking forward to your next... somehow...

Keep taking it till the next installment!  ;)

Jem that was superb! Loved a lot of the 2d stuff I've been playing with similar things but come up with nothing, you have now given me something to play with! I to liked that 2d finger grind thing. Some really really nice concepts and generally nice moves.

You making it to the BJC?

Thanks Hath. Actually I saw your practise vid recently and I think you've come up with a lot more than you think! I'm looking into the BJC and look forward to seeing you there if Igo.

i am very VERY impressed! a lot of nice webs performed with grace, style and flow. nice video indeed squire.
I know i cant officially give them out but i think it is well deserved...... 'CLICK'


Thanks! Not sure what you mean about the 'CLICK'?

Lovely job Jem, a fine video you have there sir.  Loving some of the new concepts you're experimenting with, can't wait for an inevitable jam sometime soon.

Thanks Loobs. That would be good although I'm on the other side of the bridge now Boyo! (Only 40 mins from Bristol though.)

Lovely video Jem, beautiful mounts and string compositions. My favourite was the 2d eiffel combo!

That was also the hardest Tijn, you wouldn't beleive the amount of times a tried to get that grindy -switchy bit smooth and still not perfect.

mmmm 3.39, you've got style coming out of your ears! lovely all in all, a very enjoyable watch. well done.


I thought you might like that combo Lz  ;)

Thanks again everyone, I'd just like to say it's great to be making contact with the community again after 4 months of being offline at home.

Never been to a BJC or spent any time around the Ponte/Leeds lot?
Clicker Training is a way of training animals where you use a clicker to indicate positive behaviour. Applied to diabolo, you could be practising a trick and every time you did it correctly someone watching would give you a click. If you did it badly, no click. Eventually you become conditioned to do the trick the right way every time. I think Donald Grant ran a workshop about it at BJC 2007. "Click" became a bit of an in-joke to describe something good.

Back on topic, Great video. You really seem to be crafting a style all your own and that is always nice to see. Kudos.
