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).
