I think I'm okay enough to start linking videos here.

(I was so frustrated with getting this on camera. I was working on it for like 15 minutes. Hehe!)

How am I doing so far?


#2

Wow!

That’s awesome!

ahahah the second vid u were like heck ya i just did that. what of it? hahaha

Very good. Being able to tilt the top upside down and back again at your command is a huge step. “Circuito” (spanish) aka “Racetrack” is a great trick. Do it without moving your hands to master the trick. What’s next?

I still have to move my hands about a tiny bit, so the top doesn’t just slam into my finger, right? Or will the momentum of the top coming around pretty much take care of that? I try it and it usually just falls off.

Those videos look so cool…nice job Patrick. :slight_smile:

I don’t know anything about spin tops, but it looked good to me.


#9

My hands move a little when I do it too, but I’ve seen others that do it real fast and their hands don’t move at all. Looks cool like that. What else you working on?


(DOGS) #10

Mostly sideways stuff. Braintwisters, around the worlds, whip catches, barrel rolls.


#11

You learning from the Spintastics videos?


(DOGS) #12

I’m learning from watching youtube videos, mostly. Is there a good tutorial series?


#13

Not yet…


#14

Wow that’s amazing one question can you get a spintop back up just curious…


#15

Do you mean rewind? Most spin tops do not rewind, unless it is a yo yo-spin top hybrid, like this one:
