The 4 sprinkler entries: a short tutorial
« on: November 25, 2004, 09:51:29 PM »
I was discussing some sprinkler entries with Norbi today and the uselesness of words to describe these moves soon became apparent. I grabbed my camera and filmed, edited, converted, and posted a short video in 30 minutes. Then I figured I might as well share it in hopes that it will help others.

http://diabolo.ca/video/sean_4sprinklers.mpg  (5mb)

mirror: http://66.49.236.16/temp/sean_4sprinklers.mpeg

The 4 entries shown in approximate order of difficulty are:

1. Left hand backwrap
2. Left hand frontwrap
3. Right hand backwrap
4. Right hand frontwrap

The resulting sprinkler position is the same in #1 and #3 as well as between #2 and #4. It was #4 I was discussing with Norbi - it's by far the hardest of the 4. There are two versions of #3 (the right hand backwrap). The first is an aggressive version where a lot of spin is required and the sprinkler is 'squished' at first. The second is a slower non-swinging version in which the sprinkler is not 'squished' initially. You loose less spin with this second version. If you want to get triple backwrapped sprinklers you will probably have to adopt a less aggressive style like this one.

If anyone wants to do a video tutorial at this point let me know. I think Arjan and Norbi have something up their sleeves right now.

Cheers,
Sean

I didnt know there were so many ways of getting into sprinkler!

Hmm, what I really want is a few simple 2 diabolo tricks slowed down and explained (arm stalls, vortexes, magic knots etc)

If you could do that, it would be great!

Thanks

P.S. Is excalibur hard? I can nearly get it horizontal and spinning

Nice video Sean!
I always have material to show... but not right now, after Norbi I guess.
I know there is a 5th way to get into the sprinkler, using a knot transfert.

I`m exited to see that movie of Norbi to!!  :lol:

Very handy video Sean.

Arjan, a sixth way, from a left stick trap.

Norbi I wouldnt mind a tutorial on your genowind (leg kick trick), I picked up a lot of tricks from your videos but I got nowhere with this one. Though I would say that any tutorial would be welcomed.

Oli there is a nice slo-mo of a vortex as part of Seans Fan tutorial video, I would also recomend you have a go at the tricks on Barnesys site (if you have not done so allready)

Also there is a link to VLC a media player that will allow you to slow down videos.

Try speeding up the diabolos for a bit more time before you attempt it.
 I find you need a fair amount of speed if you want to pull them off for any length of time whatsoever.

Is it that the diabolos are falling out of line or is it that the hyperloop collapses quickly?

You need A LOT of speed. Generally you will need to whip the diabolos to get enough speed for a good sprinkler. Unless you're Finnish apparently - check out some of the triple sprinklers these guys pull off with no whipping!

Other than that, the motion you use to get into a sprinkler can make a difference. Ultimately, it comes down to practice. Mostly practice at getting 2 diabolos to a very high speed (which is a good skill to have for all tricks).

aha i will have to practice diffirent ways to get into it shown on the vid. cheers for that its cool to learn new ways to get into the same trick it helps when your trying to link them together

i  have difficulty getting into a double though, are there any tips, like does a new string help etc? also does a small exploded sprinkler help it to last longer? i have tried getting them both inside a trapeze ie a sprinkler with your stick in the loop but with no sucess, does this work at all?? if not is there a way to open it up if the diabolos are spinning fast but still gettin close together?

cheers! :)

so do you mean do a sprinkler then send it over into a shuffleover? I just had a crack at it but unfortunately ran out of string length. Ah well, wouldn't mind seeing if this is doable.

I think both string that is too slippery (new) or too old can make sprinklers a bit harder but should never make it impossible. Having string that is long enough helps too. Speed and practice are the key elements.
Quote from: nik

Interesting idea. I've been playing with that recently. If you get the rhythm just right you can sort of 'pump' the sprinkler and keep it going longer - similar to a synchronized driving of a two diabolo shuffle.

You may notice me doing something like that in the last sprinkler entry on the video. In that clip the spinkler starts off crooked and I'm sort of pushing the sprinkler over with my left stick to straighten it out. I can't really explain this all that well, but it works. Maybe I'll shoot an overhead video of it someday if anyone's interested.

I´m Finnish... but I can´t do same speeding than Aaro (the finnish guy in those videos). He tried to teach it to me in last 531 (one juggling featival, by ville walo and others...) here in Finland. My physics just can´t do so fast armwork, so I stay in whipping. And I want to learn that style what Aaro uses because with that you can do very cool under leg and stuff...

ah quality stuf!

at the moment my shuffle is pretty much spot on, and with a good throw in I can keep the shuffle going for some time... but as ofyet im not really getting anywhere with the corrections.

I was going to force myself to learn corrections before I learnt any tricks, but thats meanaing im just spending a lot of time doing my pretty much perfect shuffle waiting for the diabolo to go out of correction!

I'm had a quick go at a stopover, and ive heard a grind is a good starter trick, im also keen to have a go at the hyperloop / sprinkler, however ambitious it might be :P but I cant find a good guide or video how to get into it.

I was mystified by hyperloops and I was determined to learn it, I learnt it quite early (within a week).
The way I learnt them was to think of it as a short sun with 2 diabolos.
http://www.diabolotricks.com/Suns.htm

Make sure both diabolos hit the string or either 1- you will get tangled or 2- one will go into a Left wrap.

To unwrap it, you need to do a right hand front side unwrap- sorry I don't know how to explain it, watch a video of someone.

Give that a go. I learnt tricks and corrections at the same time so I didn't have to wait for the diabolos to go out of line.

Hope this helps
Oli

bite the bullet and work on corrections, honestly it pays of quicker than you think.

Theres some threads on hyperloops allready, you'll find links to them in the tricks sticky. basically you will want speed so will benefit from knowing how to do backwraps, and really good alignment (corrections come in helpfull here),

The wayI learned to do hyperloops came after I learned short suns to the left. The motion i like to think of for doing it is sending both diabolos over the left stick as if into a stopover (if you keep the left stick pointing forward you get a shuffle over, if you angle it the string slips by into a hyperloop).

Others find it easier to think of the entry to be thought of as putting a wrap around both diabolos. any way, check the videos and good luck

(and work on the tricks on www.2diabolo.net if you are short ofideas)

oooh, i think i just did the sprinkler, it didnt last very long but that might be cause i didnt have enough speed, i will work on it more. thank you so much you guys, i love this trick

the other problem i just noticed is that the whole thing seems to go my right, and sometimes one diabolo misses the string, but besides that, it's coming along fairly well.

I had those problems, Punk, you will never miss it after a few weeks (on purpose). And I find that I move my left stick up slowly becuase this keeps it going for a little longer - maybe that why its going to the right.

Well done for getting it, it was the trick I always wanted to learn.

im still having problems with the hyperloop :(

I (think) I understand what i'm meant to be doing, a half sun to the left, but simply sending both diabolo over instead of just the one, but im not so sure at what point in the shuffle I need to "send" the diabolo, im sure that why im ending up with a complete mess instead of a hyperloop :P

admitedly I havnt tried loads, but at least I go back to uni soon, someone there can put me right ;)

I have a question regarding the hyperloop (or sprinkler).  I have become consistent with getting into the trick, but I have loads of trouble getting out of it.  My current technique is to just quickly unwrap the diabolos.  The result usually is that the diabolos just slide and crash together, tying a nice knot.  I imagine it is a timing problem... I need to just wait for the proper moment.  I have noticed that most people who exit this way (instead of the stick throw method) bounce the diabolos a little at a certain point, then unwrap.  

I also have trouble keeping the hyperloop going for more than 2 or 3 "orbits."  Again, the diabolos just slide together or move along the string toward the right stick (I'm right handed).  

Thank you for any advice you can give.

cycle, you need more speed on the diabolos to do a sprinkler for any more than a few orbits.  A lot of speed is needed.

As for exits, I learned the suicide exit first.  I think it's a lot easier, you just let go of the stick, and then grab it as it comes around.  Your hand barely moves.  Keep in mind that it tends to come around fast, though.

Yes, speed is very important for sprinklers. If the diabs aren't spinning fast enough, they just crash together. The more speed, the more 'orbits' the diabs will make.

I learnt the suicide exit first too. It's easier in the beginning, just let it go, and catch it again when the diabolos are unwrapped. If you want to use the unwrap-exit, you should unwrap it entirely. If you don't do it right, one diabolo ends up in a left backwrap (if you're using the left backwrap entry), so when that diabolo travels to the left, you have to unwrap it with your lefthand. That's called 'stop the sprinkler' (which is the exit that I prefer :) )

Good luck with it!

Agreed, I too first learnt the 2D sprinkler as a suicide exit when I first was going (only a few months ago).  Everytime I got into a sprinkler, I instinctively let go of the stick because I wanted to get in and out as quickly as possible.  Of course I would only be able to catch the stick every so often because it does fly round at a great speed and using wooden sticks doesn't help.

I too have had the problem of getting out of a left backwrap sprinkler by front unwrapping with the right, but I end up with one in a wrap and have to quickly sort it out, or mess it up.
Now I've discovered it is much easier for myself personally to get into a sprinkler with a left front wrap (same as a right backwrap) as I can do a double sprinkler and also an exploded sprinkler from this position.  Also getting out of it conventionally is alot easier as it is a right hand back unwrap.  You can't suicide out of this one as easily though.

That's aaro allright in those videos. I'm practicing triple sprinklers also with just wrapstart and shuffling (merrying) like a maniac (should we start to call this a finnish sprinkler entry :D). You get enough speed with that technique also.

I also start sprinklers comletely different than in those videos. It's more like... umm... really can't explain. But just a wrap with pushing your hand downwards, no pulling diabs in any direction. Let's see if I could make a video out of it.
It's just a world spinning around your diabolo

It helps to have the diabolos spinning very quickly.  

Also, you kind of need to get the feel of it for yourself, but I think it helps to start with if you try to keep your left hand high and the right hand low.

If you do left hand backwrap, then it's a right hand front unwrap to get out.  I can't do a RHFU very well and I always miss one of the diabolos.  If when it's sprinkling, you move it closer to the left handstick, then when you suicide it, it'll come round slower, or you can catch the string, whatever you fancy.

I do a lefthand frontwrap instead because I find I can catch both diabolos in and it's just a right hand backwrap to get out again which is much easier.  It's a compromise between getting in and getting out.

You sound like me, i can do it sometimes to, i think generally it is speed that i need and to keep the diabolos inline because sometimes i can get them to revolve around eachother for a while the one ends up missing the loop and it all knots up! It doesn't help that i have to use 2 completely different diabolos :( . But all that will change tomorrow.....yellow generation 2  :lol: .

hyperloop from a stopover
« Reply #41 on: July 22, 2005, 04:15:43 PM »
Do a left  stopover (this isolates one diabolo and allows you to treat the other diabolo as 1d) , send the other one to  join it, if the string stays over the stick you have a 'shuffle over' (shuffle in a stopover)  if you let the string slip off you have a traditional hyperloop.

This was hoe Dave P. developed hyperloops years ago I believe. part of the 'I can do a trick with one, what happens if I do it with two' method.

If you have a look at the 2nd leeds lot video you see how I  do a hyperloop from  a left stick trap, this is a development from the stopover entry since the sticktrap and stopover are fairly similar. (i think its in that clip)

i'm trying to nail a sprinkler after exiting a long vortex. I think I have enough speed but since the shufffle is in the opposite direction after exiting the vortex, it makes the sprinkler part very difficult. Does anyone have any ideas in terms of an easier entry/ technique to put forward as I would be most grateful :wink:

LFW seems to be the only one I can do half decently to keep it going.  My LBW sucks something powerful, and I've had a few successes with RBW which looks more impressive when you enter.  Just wish I could get sprinklers to hold.

Huge thanks to Martijn for the re-post.

Can now do all 4 though the RBW (the trianulated one) is very temperamental and usually ends in a huge knot.  When it does work its initially a very small loop (diabs v close together or hitting and causing said knot) until the speed of the diabs spinning pulls them apart into a wider sprinkler.  Any tips on correcting this problem??

Also does anyone actually use the RFW entry on a regular basis.  Can do it but cant see why anyone would want to as its not exactly visually pleasing now is it.

Sprinkler doesn't work
« Reply #53 on: October 28, 2005, 01:24:57 PM »
Hi,

I've problems with my sprinkler, it doesn't last as long as you can see it e. g. in the educational videos of tmfp.
My string is very new( i can't hardly do a wrap start :D ), but when the sprinkler starts it goes quickly to the right side.
When I try to keep both arms up, the sprinkler collapses.

thx for help

you say your string is veray new, perhaps thats the problem!
when I tried the sprinkler the first times I recognized that I needed much speed! Perhaps play a bit with this string and then try again or ask a friend to throw a very fast second diabolo in your string!

learn to speed up your diabolos very fast and dont use a too new string
and if you are using finesse diabolos you shouldnt wonder why you cant hold your sprinkler very long

I think you have to use your left arm to correct this, watch the video and look at the hand movements while he is holding the sprinkler (that worked for me)

Why doesn't the sprinkler work with finesses? Are they too light?
TMFP does it always with finesses... :shock:

i can do a double sprinkler easily with my G2s, and i suck at 2D :P it's a matter of speed, that's all. you gotta get em going crazy fast or else the sprinkler will collapse.

I think the trick is to get the diabolos moving as quickly as possible rather than getting them spinning quickly. Sync or right only shuffles are great for doing this.

you need quite a lot of speed, make sure that both diabs are in the wrap.   remember, practice makes perfect.

I've got the sprinkler with left frontwrap and I can get out most of the time but they seem to last for a very short time and when I see any videos they last much longer. How can I increase the length of sprinkle?  ???

My guess is More speed and make sure your string isn't too short.

New string also reduces sprinkler time. LBW sprinklers tend to last longer I think. More speed is usualy the key to them though.

Why would they? Except ofcourse if you have the technique for that better.

Maybe can someone post a video tutorial about how much speed you need...

That will many people help out.

How about a couple of video-less hints?

Typically, if the shuffle is carrying itself (that is to say, you don't need to drive it with your handsticks at all), you've got enough speed for a sprinkler. Play with getting your diabolo's spinning as quickly as you can make them and then trying the sprinkler - a really fast shuffle should have the diabolos nearly rocketing out of your string and banging into your handstick. Experiment with different speeds as well and see what suits your fancy.

And from our illustrious admin:

You need A LOT of speed. Generally you will need to whip the diabolos to get enough speed for a good sprinkler. Unless you're Finnish apparently - check out some of the triple sprinklers these guys pull off with no whipping!

Other than that, the motion you use to get into a sprinkler can make a difference. Ultimately, it comes down to practice. Mostly practice at getting 2 diabolos to a very high speed (which is a good skill to have for all tricks).
