I updated the diabolo page a couple of days ago and see you reverted it. You correctly noted that Jan is hovering.
However, is there any reason to assume that the other records as recorded on IJDB didn't do that? And should there not be a mention at least otherwise of the longest time keeping 2 diabolos in the string, which at least we have video evidence of now?
PS: I probably wont see a response here, I'll try to think of checking in later but feel free to also PM me at Object Episodes or send an email: email@example.com
I'm not a diaboloist, but it seems to me that a record for a shuffle should require keeping all the diabolos going in the shuffle the whole time. Is there any reason that shouldn't be required? (The notes on some of the 2 diabolo records on IJDb do suggest that they weren't necessarily always done that way...)
Depends on if it is a "2 diabolo in string" record or a "2 diabolo clean shuffle" record. I'm not a diaobolo player either, but from the attempt that Jan made I would imagine it is difficult to run 2d for a long time without hovers. With hovers, 30 minutes is hardly impressive, as you see in the video. Maybe this is one for future recordbreakers to figure out what they want to call it, but until there is proof of someone doing a 30 minute 2 diabolo shuffle without wraps, this should be the 'official' record?
I think the low diabolo records on Juggle Wiki should be just for continuous shuffling. If someone took one out and hovered it in the middle of a 3 diabolo run and kept shuffling with just 2, I wouldn't count that as a 3 diabolo record.
Hi Alex! Sorry it wasn't letting me reply to your comment on the Mills page. With regard to counting, it may well be that under that method I only got 21 catches, but in that case, wouldn't Bar Mualem's run only count as 19? We both revert to catching with our arms straight immediately after our final throw in a cross-armed position, which would be 27 for me and 25 for him. Also it appears to me that my catch 22 is caught in what would be the correct position for a catch were I continuing the mills pattern, though catch 23 does not appear to be. Sorry to be nit-picky, I certainly don't mean to unjustly deprive Bar of his record, but I think I have a reasonable case that my run is at least one catch longer. I'm happy to defer to the judgement of the admins, but wanted to at least plead my case.
