Super interested to see the submissions for this one, have fun everyone, let’s rock this! :slight_smile:


This week looks tough! I know a few, and I’m scared to do shoot the moon.


It’s the grand finale! :slight_smile:


First vid!

This is all 5 trick ladder tricks. I’m on vacation this week and don’t know if I’ll have time to learn Velvet Rolls.




Super hyped for this week and hop people at least give the rolls a try. :blush:


Yo I just want to make a couple notes for anyone that wants to give the velvet rolls a try and hasn’t ever played the style before.

Most people will probably want to shorten their strings to a length shorter than used for 1a or 0a. Some ppl go as low as 65 cm but somewhere between 70-90cm is recommended for beginners. I’m 5’10 and use 72-76cm for 3a. fwiw. I’ve just seen a lot of people start right away by using their 1a string length and wanted to preemptively make that note.

Also, just want to say that the strings do not cross at all for velvet rolls so y’all don’t need to worry about knots as much!

Good luck everyone! Just wanted to chime in bc I don’t know how many people play the style.


To add to @GTDropKnot note ask questions here or on the MRM G2 thread but any further interest or advice on 3A or velvet rolls go to Save 3A discord. They are awesome folks and some real talent there with some solid advice to give.


Wow, fun trick list this week! Excited to try them. Thanks to all for putting together the last two months. What a fun way to play. Cheers. :v:


Anyone else find it amazing that @Ardeus can film a 2.5 minute tutorial in a single uncut shot and make no mistakes? Even with a slingshot slackicide in there, first try. Amazing.


I think that every dang time.


Everyone was impressive the quality from week 1 of far to week 4 of mrm is night and day better.


I will definitely second this. I know I am doing things now that I wasn’t before we started this. And many have shown tremendous improvement. Then there are those who just make it look like artwork. Thanks to everyone, because no matter what your skill levels are, it has just been super fun hanging out. Again just a huge thanks to all who have juggled until they couldn’t feel their arms anymore to make all of this happen. Also huge thanks to all who have participated, the joy this brings makes all of the hard work worth it for those that have given so much time over the last 2-1/2 months for this. It really has been a lot of fun and filled with excitement. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.


Hey thanks, man. I appreciate it!

But sorry to disappoint, it did take multiple takes. :face_with_peeking_eye:


Wassup here’s all 6 tricks. Responsive velvet rolls hard lol good luck everyone! This month was really fun!

Please see below for submission, all 5 main tricks, Velvet Rolls Guest Trick is real sketchy as this was my first foray into 3A, I’m personally not counting it unless someone states otherwise, but was fun to try!
Bonus Scenes in beginning and end this time! :stuck_out_tongue:

Thank you all for the fun and excitement over these couple of months, proud to be part of this all. Similar to FAF, I feel like I’ve really Evolved from where I was at, and have friends who have Raved about how great this was as well. It’s been a ride, but the Boomer in me is ready for some rest, haha! Especially that shoot the moon, my shoulder is in lowhp mode right now too, lol.

Thanks again, and on to the grand finale!!!
