It's all about what you prefer yourself. though for 2 and 3 you don't want a very short string. i usually make the string the length of the floor to just below my armpit, and thats good for 1 and 2 (can't say about 3, because i can't do 3) this is sometimes concidered long.

what you could do is make it  a little longer, and than shortening it until you find the length that suides you best.

Longer string means "slower" tricks, especially when doing suicides or genocides. if you use a very long string I wouldn't recommend light sticks (carbons), because they tend to fall down when they are swining around.

Pick something between armpit and nose height and use it for while. Then when you need to replace it, think "would I prefer it shorter or longer?" Adjust accordingly.

Most people find the early stages of learning 2 and 3 diabolos low easier with longer string. The opposite for high patterns. Once you are competent at the patterns you'll probably pick something different that suits your style and preferences. There is no right or wrong length, so experiment and find what works for you. Never stop experimenting as you progress.

In an ideal world I'll bet many people would prefer slightly longer string as they go up the numbers; however, most people happily come to a compromise with a length that works for everything.

I'm new to this but, in Mr. Babache aluminium  xtreme stick papers there's a range on how long the string should be:

for 1D the length of the string should be from the floor to the middle of your chest.
for 2D the length of the string should be from the floor to your shoulders

The above measures do not include the string spent on knots so be careful.

greetings and good luck

Have you ever seen the light?

I always wondered where those recommendations came from. I assume through the MFP as they were working together at the time. However, I find it hard believing that any of the MFP would have recommended using a different length string for 1 and 2 diabolos. Unless you're trying to promote the usefulness of your new sticks that you can buy multiple sets of tips for. Hmmm...

I go floor to throat and then adjust it after what I feel like for the day. Sometimes longer string feels better and sometimes shorter. I think between collarbone and chest is usually preferred.
