yah, i started doing doubles on the one year aniversery of starting. to start you can place both batons on the floor in front of you with a handistick near the edge, bringing up the handsticks gets you started in a proppeler pretty easily. or what i do is basically the same thing except for the fact that i hold the baton near the edge and have the handstick in my hand. now the sticks are in a + position. then you can go into the proppelor.

supposeldy tick tocks are easier than propellors, but for me thats reversed, whatever type of ide trick you can do should work though. you'll also need to work with you left hand for a while. i worked on both hands the whole year and when i went the ren fest where another stick was availible i just picked it up and did doubles on my first try. after getting them started just play around with them and remember to work your left hand!!!! ubbrollsmile

Here's a short video (less than 1 Mb) of me doing double devil sticks this Monday: -



doubledevil.wmv



(right click as 'save as')



I shot several clips and picked this one because of the interesting frantic recovery when the first attempt at double spins goes astray.



I've never seen my double devil sticks from the front before and was surprised at how fast they look, when you're behind them they seem a fair bit slower.

I was at the Isla Vista Juggling Festival, and there was a guy doing the most amazing double devilsticks I've ever seen... doing tricks better than any single devilstickers I've ever seen, but in tandem.

But get this: He was also standing on a Rolla Bolla or whatever that thing is called... you know, that board on top of a cylindar that you have to balance on? It was absolutely STUNNING, I sat there and watched him for a solid 30 minutes.

i have tried to do doubledevil with not much luck so far, the videos i have seen are helping a bit, i guess it just takes lots and lots of practice ubbloco

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe: attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain...

I have been playing with devilsticks for a while and i really found just practice practice practice. It helps to develop your own style.

In saying that, i ordered a great dvd from stixguru.com last week and have been quite impressed. Basically the same as the clips on the website plus more smile

I was playing around with doubles for the first time last night, good good fun biggrin

I know this thread is really old but i was blown away to put on the freestyle section of the devilsticks dvd i ordered last week and see this exact scene... a guy on a rolla bola in a hallway... unbelievable.

Even scarier was that later on they showed footage of a kid maybe 7 or 8 years old on one spinning as well... crazy
