Grinds are more a group of diablo trick rather than any specific trick, however this will attempt to teach you the basics of how to perform a simple grind with a diablo. A grind is basically when you balance a spinning diablo on one of the sticks, like you would on the string.

This is how I do it

  1. get the diablo spinning fast(it tends to slow down when its on the stick) and do a basic toss — though not much higher than your sticks (because you don’t want it bouncing as it lands)
  2. Turn one of the sticks inwards(so its parallel to the string) and try to catch the diablo on it, so that it lands as it would have on the string
  3. Point the knotted end of the stick upwards (because the diablo is spinning if you don’t do this it will go flying off, aim to angle it such that the force of gravity pulling it down the stick matches the spinning trying to pull it forward, its something you get used to)
  4. When you ready (probably after a few second to start with) tilt the stcik back down again so that the diablo can roll off back on to the string — alternatively you can flick the stick up so that the diablo goes into the air and catch it again like normal

This trick will take a while to master, it took me sometime, but once its done it will look pretty good. At first you may only be able to keep it there for a few seconds but with practice you can extend this time, concentrate on keeping it under control so if it begins to wobble return to normal even if you’ve only just go it there.
