The Toss

Get the Diabolo spinning.

Pull the hand-sticks apart with an even snap. The diabolo must be evenly spaced between the hand sticks.

Launch the diabolo straight up. If the diabolo is off-center, it will fly to one side.

To catch the diabolo, hold the string taut above your head with your lifting hand higher than your holding hand. Look through the string to sight on the axle of the diabolo.

Try and catch the diabolo closer to your lifting hand. Immediately give the string slack, or the diabolo will bounce off the string.
