Just realized i was not letting go of the string on my TH while trying to pop up into the GT… ok now let’s try again!
This one is going to be tuff for me. I can’t seem to manage my string tension all that well. It’s really amazing how clean he makes it look. This one is pretty advanced!! Good luck everyone.
I broke my phone and got locked out of all of my accounts. Finally got everything back up. # best thread
Whew. I’ve been stuck on this part for a bit, which made it even trickier to debug the inverted GT… so decided to check back in on this thread. I’ll give it another go with this as my reference! Thanks!
Just a status update so the thread gets some footage. First part now goes pretty consistent and working on the other parts .
Alright, so I got mega-confused on the setup, roll, and then inverted GT portion so I focused solely on that part today. Hopefully this is correct and helps some folks. If I’m goofing on some part, please let me know.

Inverted GT Steps
Step 0: Do all the Angel combo leading up to this point.
Step 1: Get into this mount, with twists on each index finger with horizontal string on the outside and vertical strings on inside:
Step 2: Roll yoyo clockwise and inside over throwhand index finger, while still holding section under pinky and letting that come up and over TH thumb.
Step 3: End up in this formation
Step 4: Launch yoyo upwards into top horizontal string while dropping front string off TH index finger
Step 5: Let yoyo fall inside/behind strings.
Step 6: Carry on with Angel combo, my wayward sun.
Omg! I got the inverted a GT and exit correctly! So sloppy but i got it once! I’m gonna need another week at least!
Im struggling to even get to the inverted GT so far. This is showing me how bad I am at slack management lol
Haven’t tried this one too much as it’s pretty far outside of my skill level. Got the first half down this morning but probably not going to complete it. Looking forward to tomorrow’s trick though
Anybody mastered the whip after the inverted GT?
IMO the hardest part. The last part is ok but the „double/720 whip“ is intense.
Just a fun trick idea I had will practicing:
This part has got me pretty stumped.
Up to that, i feel like a ninja.
This was a beast. It’s not super clean or as flashy as Angel but I got TAW week 2
Yeah pretty hard. But I really learned a lot from this trick how to whip/throw and build tension on slacks.
Will potentially take a year to digest all of this and get it smooth .
omg! Finally getting to the inverted GT, its slow and clumsy but reliable lol
So i got the inverted GT this is as good as I’m getting it… well keep at it but i was pretty happy to hit this one so i filmed it.
Good Friday Trick-a-Week crew! My good friend @hesperaux showed me a very cool Ping-pong trick and i found a tutorial on it so i wanted to share it. It’s a bit easier then last week so I’m hoping we can post some videos and get back to last weeks trick for those that want to complete it.
Excellent trick choice! This was quick and fun, I’m sure my ping pong will smooth out a bit more over time. Almost as satifying as Boingy Boing!
I’ll admit, I’m still struggling with “The Angel”, but I’ll keep at it for sure.
Friggin’ love fake knots, here’s my Week #3 submission:
That was fast! And i like the pac man insert! Well done very cool!
Exactly im hoping this gives everyone a victory and a chance to get Angels combo a bit more.
