The "I Finally Landed It!" Thread

A polo garbkomal double slack. Took me about a day for a good one

I am currently trying to hit the plastic whip!! That is awesome you hit that sideways!! I love to throw sideways

Starting learning hidemasa hook last week. Nailed it four times in a row this morning. Pretty stoked, Now I’m going to start trying for doubles.

Finally landed some tension hooks (the double or nothing -> ripcord type) and found I can transition from the resulting reverse hook mount into beefhook gunshot pretty easily. Really nifty to chain them together!

I can only imagine how cool that feels

Watched Andres video on here about the matrix last night and I got it shortly after. It’s sloppy as all get out, but I can do it. Hit a few pretty cleanly this morning.

Yoyo-ing is fun


One trick I’ve never been too fussed about is the finger spin, it is something I have attempted every now and then but somewhat half-arsed. Earlier this evening however I managed to land a few and had them spinning on my finger tip and this was on my Shutter.

Still not overly fussed about the trick but nice to know it is something new I am getting the hang of.

Edit: I’m not yet able to get it back with a bind however

I’ve been hitting these tiny Hidemasa hooks pretty consistently lately. Just like a regular Hidemasa hook, but the yo-yo ends up anywhere from a half inch to an inch below my non throw hand index. Risky and satisfying


I’ve managed to do a basic Suicide a few times which I find quite exciting. By basic Suicide I mean this one:


So I tried learning how to complete a whip from a trapeze into a kamikaze mount… after 20 or so mins I managed to get it down relatively consistently.

However, I’m now trying to do the whip as the yoyo lands into the trapeze mount… this seems impossible… any tips??


One trick I never bothered learning until recently was The Matrix, I have pretty much nailed it and am now working on just getting it smoother and smoother. It is incredibly satifying to perform too!


And now Skin The Gerbill :slight_smile:

and I think I successfully did cold fusion

I’m getting the hang of White Buddha.


Just landed my first 10 Eli Hops…feels good man…such a simple trick yet it demands slick hand movement, very excited to master it >:)


Im starting to get consistent with man and his brother stalls on fixed axle. Seems like basic stuff, but it took me about a week to get the ‘brother’ stall more consistent than 1 time out of 10.


This and “Roller Coaster to String” on a spin top have been two tricks that have just frustrated me for years! I’m starting to be able to land them!

The hand motion felt very counterintuitive at first.


Still feels that way a little bit, I’m throwing an OD Parlay so the high walls don’t make it any easier to catch (though i believe this will help me master it quicker in the long run) - my success rate is currently 4/10 tries

This suicide thing that goes into a double slack that I’m making
