This morning I learnt an "easier" (same knot only less stringlayers involved) version of trap door.

All about the left hand and practice. All you wanna do with your right hand is wrap then start pulling, your left hand has to force the other 2 diabolos down into place, the timing is tricky to get.

Ive learnt the fan hyperloop thing, getting out of its hard tho

I learnt to diabolo again. The weather has been bloody awful, so I haven't had much practice over the winter. Things seem to be picking up a bit now though.

Hell yeah, good to hear you finally cracked that gunner :D

The hover trick got it working for Tijn too!

Yeah, it feels amazing. It's still a bit dodgy with my short string, collisions happen more often than never. However, the diabolo that's hovering in the wrap needs serious correction and I don't have the time to do that while hovering. Also, I can't figure out the correct timing to unwrap :P

Anyways, my 3 low wrapstart looks and feels way more relaxed after Duncan gave me some tips and figuring out some problems myself. It's not consistent yet, after say 10 perfectly timed unwraps in a row, I can't seem to find the right timing again, which is pretty frustrating. When the wrapstart does work, the shuffle is hard to maintain because the height and alignment can totally screw you up. I'm sure that's just a matter of tweaking over time when my start gets solid.

Do film!

Today I managed a run of: 3d low hover start, 3d sun, up to 3d high, held that, back to 3d low, another 3d sun, drop it all and scream like a school girl. Anyone who has seen the agony I've been through knows that's a huge step for me! I even landed the first 3d sun I tried in my cramped office today. I think they're here to stay.

No you don't. ;) There isn't even room to set up a camera and get in shot.

I wrote a bit here. Some day I'll make a video, but I'm too busy at the moment.

solidish fts 2-2-3, better understanding of 3D unfeed the sun, ive been unfeeding way to soon in the suns rotation making 2-3-2-3 almost impossible, ive learnt to unfeed earlier, it feels much smoother and ive landed quite a few 2-3-2-3 today. Almost landed 2-2-3-2-3 but didnt get back to shuffle cause i rushed the last 3* in a panic.
