I learnt a new trick! Excalibur genocide to "infinite" suicide. But how the hell do you guys (Pranay, with a friggin Finesse!) keep it going for so long? My record is like 3... if I give it loads of spin, it'll only climb up to my left stick, so that ain't helping much either. Also, the stick often hits my body.

But yeah, it's a nice addition to the genocide.
I usually get hit by the sticks, too :(.
Dunno if this would help, but doing mini-infinite suicides seem to increase the amount of rotations for me. Maybe it would help you out, too?

And what Matt says seems to be right since I use Aluminums (my other sticks are wooden or broken :'() and the string always get wound up when doing infinite suicides and sometimes with mini genocides

Over The Top means exaggeration ex. doing a octuple vertax genocide when a triple is suffient =b
Oh... Well, it still kinda sounds strange to me for some reason...

Oh right, forgot to say what I learned...

Finally bothering to do more 2D stuff since I'm rather lazy about practicing it more often than my 1D.
2D continuous suns are shaping up, minicolumns, sprinkler-suicide exit, and finally a siteswapping thingy: 31 (tried to keep going, but it didn't work too well :()

And then a magic knot going under the body/between the legs and then catching it in front.
Sort of like a rainbow kick in soccer/football, but with a diabolo.

I got some cool vertax duicide moves.
siteswapping thingy: 41 (tried to keep going, but it didn't work too well :()
31 siteswap?

Like in Capitaine Buisson's video perhaps I can.
But it should be possible with any type of gear, shouldn't it? Don't blame your material, to quote a wise dude... ;)
Agreed ,it should be possible with any type of gear after some practice, but when you're learning it could be easier to do the trick, if you use sticks that make the trick easier. Less momentum from stcks circling the diabolo gives you the extra hover because the diabolo has the dominant weight and isn't affected by a heavier swinging stck. This can increase the length of string between the stick and diabolo and cause the diabolo to hit the controlling stick.

Ah well. Getting off topic. Maybe someone should dig up a topic about this and continue there.

A new (for me anyway) 2d mini-g and 50 OTT of 3 low. I wish I hadn't learnt it though, about 20 mins after my good runs started I managed to chip a chunk out of one of the hubs of one of my diabolos :( so I can't use it now -I bet I won't be able to do three for as long now aswell.

Looks like I might end up ordering some Flys before Christmas afterall!

Oh, right, 31, finger must've slipped or something...
Dunno, I haven't seen that video yet.
I'll go look it up.

I learned not to go and practice 2d again just cause my blisters feel a little bit better. Also I learned how to keep 2d going.....for a little while. fail at big suns and can sometimes do sprinkler, but with my ridiculous looking diabolos they tilt really bad from the sprinkler unless they go in perfectly aligned.

Add up all the numbers and then divide by the length of the siteswap sequence.
eg. (4+5+6+0+1+4+1) / 7 = 21/7 = 3. So it is a three diabolo siteswap.

This one isn't valid , it's a sort of mix between 45501 and 4560141 which both are valid.

WOOO!
Of course none of these are solid, and some aren't caght in the right hands, but i finished them all with out any spins(end over end) of the diabolo

Vertax duicide variations=Duicide to genocide, duicide to duicide, over and underarm suns to duicide, duicide to under and overarm suns, duicide catch left handstick, continue like genocide,Duicide from btb throw, and......360 vertax duicide(not official really since i think i caught the wrong handsticks, and the duicide didn't spin, but it's a start)
