One stick with a loop of string attached? I've played around with that a little; you need to orbit to get speed which is hassle but duicides (one stick duicides... hmm) are fun.

Sort of,   I have one end of string in stick like normal, And the other tied to end of grip (Half way along the stick)

Some cool tricks to be done with it, Especially with 2d imo.

A GT like I've never seen before.

I've also learnt to envy legault's long string...

beni is it the law that you have to post at least every third comment?

so you know its reasonably easy to get double/triple slacks, like diabolobro did in snowbound but try doing it in one motion so it atchually looks good. ALL about style folks.

i just learnt to....... do loads of slack/knot tricks

mofro
**** fixed and bring on the slack!

Woo practiced for about an hour and a half today. I haven't done that much since Manc convention months ago. Got about 10 new excalibur tricks and my three high has hit a wall at 20 catches. Also got some new suicidey genocide stuff.

Don't envy it, just use it.  ;)
My string is from the ground to slightly above my forehead, tied to the sticks.
Its fun to use but makes vertax genocides, very, very hard- In fact for some reason, it makes multiple vertax genocides slightly easier if you've already learned to do them(I think its because you throw the out farther).

Seriously, I am really wanting to film now...Wishing i had a camera.
I'm not really a editor or clean trick person(Most tricks i learn, i just learn and go past i don't get clean exits(Caught, but not totally clean, so when i do make a vid it'll take a while showing clean tricks and combos......maybe i can get Moffett to edit for me...If I'm lucky and he's feeling generous.

Uhoh, a 5 post gap!

About the double slack thing, it's possible to get both slacks around the diabolo with no excess. Kind of hard to explain, but you know when you do a double trapeze slack there is a lag and it actually takes quite a while to do it in terms of slack whips? Well you can get the same speed with a movement of the left hand. I have a achieved this once.
