different ways to enter 2 diabolo sprinkler

Hey

I can do a 2 diabolo sprinkler then suicide out. I saw Ofek Shilton in the
Shiltons video #2 do a very nice entrance to the sprinkler trick, the just
unwrapped to get out, instead of having to suicide out.

In the video it is at 3:25, if anyone can give a good description of this
trick or provide a link, that would be great.

Thanks

Static

Ofek entered into the sprinkler with a right hand wrap instead of the
normal left hand wrap. It's sort of a backwards entry as the wrapping
motion is counterclockwise as opposed to the clockwise motion of the
diabolos. If you do it while swinging the diabolos from the right to the
left you get the appearance of the diabolos "popping" into place in the
sprinkler. I find it requires a bit more spin to get an equivalent right
hand entry sprinkler vs. a traditional left hand entry. This method can
also be used of course for double and triple spinklers too.

When I enter this way I think about making a large enough circle with my
right hand and obviously timing it correctly. Once you're in the sprinkler
it's the same wrapping struture as if you wrapped with the left hand over
the front of the diabolos. You can suicide out of this too if you'd like -
but the stick must travel on the opposite side of the string than usual -
or you can catch the stick on the other side of the string to avoid this.

I believe I used a number of "right hand entry" sprinklers in the last
diabolo video I put together - "A Man's Chew". The suicide out variation
is at 1:14. My website (diabolo.ca) is down until the end of the month,
but you can find it here for now:

I can not add to what Sean said because I'm struggling to get this trick
at the moment myself but I just wanted to point out that if it is purely
the unwrap you want to get, then you can exit the sprinkler you already
can do using one. Just pick your moment and circle down below diabolos
and in front of them (the same as unwrapping a frontwrap with the right
hand but a bigger, lower circle).

Sorry if you can already do this exit but I wasn't sure if you could
only get out of hyperloops/sprinklers by suiciding (*only haha*). I
learned the suicide way first but found the unwrap method not too bad
(and the way I use if I'm in doubt).

Thankyou Sean for the tips on this trick I'm gettin closer to getting
it now.

Thats okay, you don't have to. I can watch videos in slow motion as long
as they are in quicktime.
