Adrian's custom trick patch
« on: May 26, 2012, 11:41:32 AM »

The 10 year old prodigy Adrián posted a few days ago the tricks needed to earn his patch:



I feel a little hesitant about posting this, I don't want anybody to be discouraged by how good this kid has become in no time.  The list of tricks is:

       1- Wire walker followed by half orbits
       2 - Hammers (Martillos) x 5
       3 - Wheel of Fortune/Regen Suns (Bastones) x 12 continuous
       4 - Snap Start: choice between Foot Start or Upside-Down start
       5 - Upside-down orbits/magnetic wire
       6 - Corbatines x 5
       7 - Walking roller coaster x 4 (counting boomerang, 4 passed under the leg)
       8 - Triple-Turn combo: pirouette boomerang + around the head MGR + around the world
       9 - Body bounce combo: foot + knee + elbow + hand around the top
 
And this is the demo video:



I believe he is the first one ever to do an upside-down snap start  :o

Earning this one is going to be hard   ::) ::) ::) At least the dancing is optional!   ;D

not bad. i would like to see more bearing tip videos. i mostly see fixed tip play. i have nothing against fixed tip play but i prefer bearing. it seems to me that the tricks differ from fixed to bearing. even if the trick is the same the top rotates in a different mannor from bearing than fixed.

I am still amazed by this video. 

I think one day we should have a video contest with the title: "Dancing with a Top"

Later today I will post my video of Adrian's patch, but first here are two who posted videos over pulp's forum but were never added to the thread:

Javier F. :



Practicing for this patch was great as it has been challenging and that is what one needs to improve as a player.

Nice play by everyone!

I'd like to just clarify some naming conventions and distinctions between tricks for myself.  The Spanish player all do "Martillos (Hammers)" per ta0's list #2 with the top tip away from the body as the top passes above the button hand while ta0 does "Hammers" per the label in his video with the top tip towards the body as the top passes above the button hand.  I thought the version ta0 performs was called 'Arachnids'.  I find the button hand action is different enough to merit a distinction between these two tricks.  Are they just variations of the same trick called "Martillos" where the emphasis is on the action of the non-button hand?  Is there some additional subtle difference that separates Arachnids such that ta0 is not doing Arachnids?  Maybe someone could do an overhead video of the distinct tricks to highlight the differences.

Thanks for the comments!

You have a good eye, John!
I was going to comment on that, but I did not want to do it right away with the video.  You are right, according to Salvador those would be Arachnids as the tip is pointing towards me instead of away.   But when Salvador does his Arácnidas, on the upper part of the movement the top stands up like in an MGR, while I keep it horizontal (like Cuper did in the Trompo Mágico video).  Salvador distinguishes between several different tricks, like for example Relámpagos (Lightning), that for Gus are just variations of Martillos.   I am more with Gus, to me they are variations of Martillos (Hammers).

On the Corbatines (that I am calling Neckties) I don't do the standard trick either.  Gus created the trick by landing the top trapeze-style on both sides.  Salvador changed the trick to catching the top Sewing Machine-style (or Roller Coaster)  on both sides, and called them Hummingbirds (Huitzime Quetzálcoatl).  I found that I needed more regeneration, so I am doing alternate catches, a la Joker Choker.  I don't think Adrian actually regenerates when he does the trick.
