Continuous 2d suns and nearly c-fan(A few good rotations and then it whacked me in the face)

double genocide, nearly triple but the speed of the string threw the diabolo and kinda hit the greenhouse  ::)

This schoolholiday and the week before I´ve learnt:

4D:

Much better start now. A new PB as well in the most unstable pattern ever.

3D:

Changed my technique on the 3D sun(before it was solid but looked more like Yabes. Now it´s not very solid anymore but I´m trying to make it look more async). Started to learn fts. It´s weird, doing continous 5x isn´t so hard but just the exit is a big problem if anyone have any ideas ???.

Finally got the accelration into immediate 3 high somewhat solid. Also (inspired by the TND video) been trying to experiment with some sunvariations under a double armstall-start and box with some success.

2D: Variations on exits from normal sprinklers. That whip with pirouette under 1 high. Also started practicing the whip with a jump.

1D: Taiwanese legcombos (which I totally suck at :P) are getting better. Also got Williams inf. suicide exit variation with a genocide and a throw and a few selfinvented exits as well. Unwrapped inf. suicide on the right hand.
4 rounds of ropeskipping which I am extremely happy for(I am tall so any tricks involving physical speed are difficult). Also have learnt two stars, a vertical cross and a variation on the "triforce" stringtricks with whips.

^I was talking about 4 high. 4D low is still only a distant dream for me :-\.

I did get a fluke run of 4D low a few months back ago (by using a one-handed stall and throwstarting nr 4) of about 2-2.5 rotations but it was just so out of control it wouldn´t even count as a pattern. Diabolos just drove themselves and fell off. Haven´t tried it again since then and probably wont (focusing on 4 high now).

I was told by Angela about a month back though that her students were practicing starting 4 low this way too, so maybe they can already do it longer and with control?

2D minicolumns with a third in an armstall. And a 2d sprinkler with a third in an armstall. But the sprinkler died.

Got any tips for the 2D columns with an armstall? I have tried it before but never with success. The stalled Diabolo always fell off.

I worked on Fans the past week(s) and I can finally say I have a ''comfortable'' fan. Can start it from ackward positions, I am able to change the rotation speed if I want to and don't have to be really concentrated to keep 'em going =)

mwhahaha the word has spread!!! bet you can't do the funtycopter lift yet. that is a ridiculously hard trick to master  ;D maybe i should do a workshop on them at the bjc.

on topic ive got a great exit for the bow :)i'll show you at notts if both you and i are there, failing that ill see about recording for VOTW or at BJC

it's too good to be caught on camera, like the elusive dodo (or something better and more amusing)

Is that even possible? Your creativity baffles the mind. You should try it with one diab on the 'blade' in vertax.
