For only doing perfect infinite suicides, your alus will not break, but if they hit the ground hard they can bend.

I use henry's short carbons and they work fine for infinites. Have smacked the floor several times and haven't had any breakages. For some reason the weight of MB sticks seems way out and I can't get infinites with em no matter how hard I try??? BTW, whats the easiest way of catching the stick after an infinite to genocide? The free stick seems to achieve warp 9 and I wondered if there was an elegant way of controlling it. 
Dude, not on the rug.

i use carbons too for infinite suicides but it's tricky to do a complete 360 turn due to the light stick and the fast rotation of it.

Are you using wooden sticks? If so, that's the reason why.

If you mean that everything wraps up into a ball it could be old string that is too grippy. If it's just wrappping around the stick then what Matt_ said.

Right now I can do this fairly well, but most of the time the stick swings around the diabolo faster than normal. Then the diabolo falls off. So therefore I am thinking that my techinque is incorrect in some way. Is there a way to correct this? I have tried wrapping faster, but the stick swings around even faster, so it doesn't help much.

nice and steady pull upwards for 80% follwed by a quick rewrap. during this rewrap you also recover the 'drop' of the diabolo caused by the pull upwards so that you keep the diabolo fairly close to your right hand. If you dont do this the diabolo falls further and further and you have to make huge circles to keep the move going

Basically you dont want it to get to the point where its wild

Amen to that! Wink But, come on... join the aluminium side: the benefits of the carbon sticks but no risk of breakage and less string usage. You know you want to...

Anyway, I was looking on my harddrive to see if I had any old closeup footage of me doing an infinite suicide that might illustrate the pause on the upstroke and the rhythm. Didn't find much, but I did find two short clips which I quickly put together with some catchy music. I tried recording them in slow motion, but the interlaced effects on the video make it shake all over the place and make it generally hard to look at, so this will have to do. In particular, have a look at the 5 to 6 second mark. I think that's the best segment in terms of the ideal hand motion.

(I know what some of you are thinking: Sean's showing a video of him doing a one diabolo trick - I thought he could only diabolo with 2 on the string at once!? Well, I'll have you notice that the first trick is a 2 diabolo entry and the second clip starts with 2 diabolos but I'm in the middle of dropping one. So there.)

Just bumping this back up to get someone to possibly temp load the video up again please *cough* Sean *cough*... Would be GREATLY appreciated!! Or if anyone else has since made a nice tutorial... Please share it!! Love you long time  ;) ;D

Okay i had all the same problems.. i tried infinite suicide normal way failed it.. i did to wild
So i tried it true trapeze i got the basics true there and now i have the feeling to do infinite suicides.

What you must do is do it SMOOTHLEY dont try and wrap it around wildly just..
Wrap the diabolo then hold the sticks in normal position.
You let go of the left stick and you try to find out at what time it is the best to re wrap it
But after you let go of the stick pull the diabolo up! with your right stick then make a circle around the diabolo so you rewrap it. But remember hold the diabolo close to your right stick.
Then just simply stop the re wrapping and catch the left stick.

This is how i do it.
Dont say you cant do it you just have to find your own way to do it..
And dont go wild and get crazy just smoothely and you will lurn it. :D

when infinate suiciding i can do all of it until the stick is orbiting the diabolo, when the string just unwraps itself and falls out of the string ???.
thats the clearest i can think to describe my problem but any suggestions?

Yes, you must rewrap the wrap you just wrapped before it unwraps ;)

Say that ten times

I do it a bit differently to most others. I don't wrap the diabolo first, I swing the diabolo anti-clockwise and then once it reaches about 2 O'Clock I let go of the left handstick and finish the wrap with my right handstick I then continue with infinite suicides. With that method I learnt the trick consistently within a couple of hours.
