Dang, wish I had a metal now.


#3

Ooooh, I can use my video editing software to cheat…

(You might want to add some sort of there has to be a consistently moving object like a pendulum rule)


#4

Yea forgot about that, added :slight_smile:


#5

Are gloves legal?? Because I can get a pretty long grind while wearing a glove. it seems slightly unfair.


#6

Nope hehe ;D


#7

I’ve been able to get some pretty solid grind times out of my Wrath and Wet Whistle. Maybe I’ll enter :smiley:


#8

I got a pretty long grind that I’m uploading near the deadline… Let’s just say you want to go for 10 seconds :wink:


#9

What’s the submission thing? Are you saying if 100+ people enter the winner gets the code 2 or what?

I GET IT EDIT EDIT!

You really think 100 people are going to enter?


#10

Nope, my bet’s on the protostar or dm2. The code 2 was just to get some attention. But I will give it away if we do reach 100


#11

Hmmm, this should be fun… Arm grinds or thumb grinds?


#12

Doesnt matter, just do your longest grind ;D


#13

My best grinder just stripped :frowning:


#14

I plan on entering, My BvM2 grinds really nicely!

Do we have to successfully bind it at the end, or can it just die?


#15

Ends when it falls off… You don’t have to bind


#16

Must be clearly still spinning though! I may have a punt at this too.


#17

I dont think it’s considered a grind if it’s not spinning? ???


(2Sick Joey) #18

This would have been cooler if it was the Best Banger that included a grind! I feel like way too many people are going to tie for the longest grind so I think that there should be a different approach that there is a clear winner


#19

I think he means that people could balance a yoyo on their thumb when it’s not spinning, and make it look like it’s spinning.


#20

since we have to hop into the grind, what about grind transitions? or would we have to hop between grinds too?
