The "I Finally Landed It!" Thread


#3441

Just got dr strange yesterday although it’s kinda simple it has a certain type of difficulty to it getting the strings to stay right


#3442

got cold fusion down fairly solid. that was actually one of the easier ones.
still struggling with kwijibo’s 2nd hop. most always land on two strings.
gw

That’s cool :+1:. I’ve never heard of this trick. is there a tut on it somewhere?


#3444

Right on this site. Under the learn section, “advanced part 2”.


#3445

Oh ok cool thanks.


#3446

Yea it’s on yo-yo expert tutorial list


#3447

Landed ladder escape really smoothly last night. Felt good


(yospeedracer) #3448

started a couple months ago after 40 years of not throwing. nailed this bind last night after MATRIX but I don’t know how to show the 15 second video


#3449

Toru Miyazaki’s tech combo (specifically, the triangle at the end).


(yospeedracer) #3450

No


#3451

Try using your thumb to widen the area between the two strings, I found that helps with landing it.


#3452

I got a horizontal gt while trying to bind on a fingerspins.:stuck_out_tongue: I may try to develop it farther.


#3453

I land in that too sometimes. Paolo Bueno has a trick built off that!

thank you. i saw your thread last thursday, your excitement encouraged me. then i looked at the trick on YouTube under yoskills. did you do it with “shockwave” as a repeater? well it took a couple of days but i got seven in a row as a repeater last night. wow what a hard trick. love it


#3455

Thumb grind! I don’t know why this has been so difficult for me, but while throwing my new Endeavor, it just clicked. Happy dance! :+1:

Spirit bomb! Finally


#3457

I just hit Gentry Stein’s “The Drift” vertically with no mistakes, but it’s gonna take a while before I can hit it horizontally.


#3458

I finally landed trapeze! Took me forever and a day! I adopted a new rule frustration is no longer an option! 2 days later I did a forward mount!

Very nice. I too had such a hard time at first. Just think though, eventually you won’t even think about the trapeze because you will be practicing your next trick. Great job, good luck.
