uh- i do this weird combo that involves a couple of things but if i were to pick just a single type of diabolo trick- i would have to say the whip catch & and variation.
Dancers leap?? what is that

fire is the light that shines in all of us. Be sure your light shines brightly wherever you go.

I'll tell you haow to do it.

Hold both hand sticks in one hand (i use my right) so you are holding the 'Holding' ends (not where the string is tied on) both sticks should point outwards (1 left and 1 right) this should make an upsidedown triangle/ a diamond. jump throught the 'shape' and pull the sticks up over your head trying not to hit your back with the diablo.

The smaller the space you jump through the harder and more impresssive the trick. Give it a go.

If i were to limit it to one specific trick it would most likely be the genocide just because of the whole bizarreness of it and because it incorporates not only a suicide but also a kind of one string whip catch as well as a infinite suicide.

But the move i do the most is a simple transition from a umbrella to a left inverted stopover with a behind the back to the left release.

I still cant fully visualize the dancers leap, any chance of some media to explain?

the trick at 3:08 is lovely as is the little sequence at 7:20.

and even though i couldn't spot who you are on about mech, i doubt if its me seeing as i wasn't actually there...

however, the bloke at the end of the video juggles an 80+ catch run of 7 clubs and he has the same last name as me - i also copied him and bought the same clubs so watching him is almost the same thing as watching me wink

Im downloading it now.

I shall look out for your "twin" Cole.

I shall also look out for the diabloistical bulldozers and the jugglerisation of bats and spheres.

Yep it's the whip.
My favourite trick would be the sun and all it's variations. Though not impressive it's a great trick to link your tricks. Sun in and out of everything and you'll get a more fluid style. So that's why I think the sun is one of the greatest tricks.

Hmm, there's gotta be something round and shiny, I can play with

my fave trick is a combo of sorts: left sun into a stick grind, throwing the daibolo up and whipping it back.

for a single trick i like catching the diabolo over the top as it opens up so many possibilities.

huddude22 whats this double suicide mind bomb all about?

If hope can grow from dirt like me.....It can be done.

My favourite trick is really simple but so much fun to do.
You throw it up, catch it on the underside of the string, then cross your arms and throw it back up!
Its extremely satisfying when you get it right.
I also really like body wraps. Round the foot, knee, figure eights, knee and head and then flick it from behind your back! Awesome!

Time...Line?? Time isn't made of lines! It's made of circles! That's why clocks are ROUND.

Ive been diaboling for a little over a year.
My favourite trick I can do with 2d is either a double sprinkler suicide with pirouette, or a 2d mni-gen. With 1d my favourite stuff is all the body combos I come up with, especialy my newest one.

Favourite trick I have ever seen is either a sextuple vertax genocide by Ben Langholz, 5201 by Priam, or recently the 2 diabolo airwrap/hyperloop by Busk.
