I was playing around with a split bottom mount and thinking of what I can do with it. Being the amateur I am, I just did a string of moves and boom!
Step 1: Split bottom mount.
Step 2: Do the first “double on” from ripcord. (NTH index pressing onto the two strings the TH index is holding making an inwards trapeze)
Step 3: Bring the yoyo back over your TH index finger landing on to the back string
Step 4: Flip forward and you’re back in a split bottom mount.
It almost feels like a Buddha’s Revenge but not really. I also managed to replicate this on the side mount or more specifically a variation of the trapeze and his brother mount.
Step 0: Throw a trapeze then stick your TH index finger under the string going across (making the trapeze).
Step 1: Get into your brother mount. If you skipped step 0, you can slip your TH index finger under the string.
Step 2: With your NTH index, press on the strings from the mini trapeze your TH index finger is holding and “double on”. (kinda like ripcord)
Step 3: Flip the yoyo over to your TH hitting and ultimately landing onto the top string.
Step 4: Flip yoyo over again but over both hands to your NTH (kinda like Buddha’s Revenge) and you’re back in a brother mount.
I’ll try to post a video if clarification is needed. Yes, I know some of these steps seem useless but I found them easier to get back into the older mount instead of simply reversing the “double on” parts. Warning: yoyo may bind/snag.
I’m not sure if this has a name but I think it’s a cool trick for amateurs and easy to learn for beginners. crossing my fingers in hopes that I created a (simple) trick
EDIT: Oh yeah, it’s not that smooth of a trick.
EDIT 2: I’m a lefty so that may change things a bit.
