I've just stretched my Diabolo 700 to an 800 and I'm having issues getting my belt tight. While I'm flying, I can hear the belt slap the boom and I think it's tight as I don't know what but it still slaps. I have the shock absorber to the last to the last hole and I'm lost. Any help is appreciated.

You cannot get the belt tight enough that it won't slap. All you will accomplish is stretching the tooth spacing. You can either listen to it (not dangerous) or put the card board tube that came around the boom inside the boom to silence the slap. Anchor it with a little Goop at each end. The cardboard is Gerd's preferred solution.
