Thanks, it’s so satisfying to pull off.
Rewind is proving to be tough, but I wanna get it down!

Oh man. Oh man oh man. After giving up on it like months ago, I just buckled down and successfully learned how to whip into the kamikaze mount! Which is great, because I was just thinking the other day how much I appreciate kamikaze for being such a fun, flashy, sort of impressive little trick!

Given you are now so string-rich, imma need you to repeat that with like 5 strings on the yo-yo at once … :wink:

Haha! That would be amazing! I’ll get to work on that.

I rewatched Mr. Matio’s tutorial for a Zach Gormley slack trick. I hadn’t been able to do the last part for a long time. All I was missing was pinching the string with NTH index finger against my middle finger. :expressionless:

Finally completed it, and with good flow!

Today I landed 3 suicides in a row, on one throw. By no means mastered, but I feel pretty good about it.

Holy hell! That’s an awesome accomplishment! :smiley: Congrats @OriginalEnvoy

Having fun with Gondola Suicides myself. They are less knot prone than Green Triangle Suicides and you can do the whippy flair thingy out of the Houdini mount in the beginning. With good string tension the structure holds up well when doing multiples in a row. Super fun
