#1

i just thought of a really cool idea maybe just maybe it might be a division (6A) 1 day ill post the video when its uploaded ;D ;D

::slight_smile:


#2

It better be pretty darn good if you have to give us such an enthusiastic warning.


#3

YEAH its fun if your skilled but its hard if you just started i created it a couple of minutes before the video so dont expect the video to be good its just a demonstration on how to do it

What is it?


#5

its like CW but without the counterweight and the string isnt tied to your hand ill post the video as soon as uploaded


#6

This style is known as flying eel and came out in around 1998.

This is my source.


#7

I thought that was called Mobius.


(Raphael) #8

Sounds like Mobius to me. Do you land on the loop?


#9

Mobius is when the slipknot comes off your finger and is actively involved in the trick.

What he described was 5a but without the counterweight.


#10

When did it change from slippery eel to flying eel?


#11

I was under the impression that they were synonymous.


#12

moebius is more of a 1a variant, whereas this is a 5a variant.

unfortunately though, pretty much everything has been thought of. so it’s pretty difficult to come up with a new style of playing.


#13

its almost the same thing it just has a wierd sliding motion like when your in the trapeze you grab the string in the other side then your in a GT


#14

um ???


#15

example when your in a trapeze slide the slipnot through the middle the middle while still holding the other side then your in a GT


#16

flying eel. sorry, no new style


#17

well at least i learned a new style so its still a NEW STYLE FOR ME :wink:


(Zammy Ickler ) #18

Moebius tends to mix both. :wink:


#19

if you spin your own string you can tie it in such a way where two yoyos are on the same string… slip knot or freehand


#20

I thought of this a while back. I guess it is gaining popularity.
