Ok, so there is this thing where the diabolo will pull its self towards the left stick. I know how to prevent it, it doesn't happen unless I really screw up (Oh, the wonders of making creative new magic knots) and it isn't really common for me anymore.  I was just wondering, is there an official name for this phenomenon?  I've heard reeling up, biting, acting like an oversized yo-yo, spooling, and pulling the sticks in. What's this called? Thanks.

if you're talking about when the diabolo is in a loop (for example) but the speed is too much and whoosh! It goes up the string in what looks like a million loops (but isn't), I've always called it the diabolo catching the string. That's probably wrong though.

But I don't think there's an official name. :'(

In Finland we call that one "skål"

But in Norwegian, it is called "Ryssiminen, rökkö or nappaa kii"

Fail also always works.......  :embarassed:
