Throw in methods

There are lots of ways to throw the second diabolo in. Any method that gives it enough spin to start going will do. Here are the methods I could think of while I had a camera handy! They all work best if you rotate your wrist a lot as you make the throw.

Top edge pinch grip - This is the one I use most.
Bottom edge pinch grip - Not as good as the first one, but works OK.
Whole cup grip - Works well if your hands are big enough!
Axle grip - This one works pretty well. It seems to get spin more easily too - maybe because you're applying spin right in the middle of the diabolo.
Left hand axle throw - This one gets a lot of spin too, and can be very convenient, especialy for throwing into 2 in 1 hand.
