Title: Trick of the week by Spintop.cz - 2nd Year [1. 1. 2018]
Post by: Hrosik on February 13, 2017, 02:41:49 PM
Hi guys!

as the original topic (http://www.ta0.com/forum/index.php/topic,4172.0.html) got pretty long, we decided to make a new one. And why right now? Because todays TOTW starts the second year of this series! Look for new tricks every Monday right in this topic.

About:
This project is called Trick of the week and I think that it speaks for itself. Every week we are going to upload a video of some interesting trick or variation on our YouTube channel. You can expect POV videos with slow-motion footage at the end. This topic is here just to let you know about new tricks, but feel free to comment them or let us know about something new to try.

Here is a list of all the videos: https://youtu.be/w1tnTlGkqBc?list=PL-XAs_P0_hwWjdBKNyDHQh3DbdbNZpSA3

Trick of the week number 54 is here, it contains one of my favourite tricks, Finger Nest, with a little sketchy addition at the beginning. Don't be afraid to try it!

PS: That winter jacket makes things a lot harder but that snow just doesn't want to melt. I haven't seen winter like this in Czech Republic in my whole short life.

Happy second year Trick of the Week! You have been an inspiration!

So, you added a hand transfer at the beginning. Fixed tip, I imagine.

Paraphrasing the motto of the US postal service:
"Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these players from the swift completion of their appointed tricks!"
We really appreciate that!

Good work.  Looking forward to another year.

I just tried it several times to see if I could brag before Jack did, but I hit my fingers with the top rather painfully, so I will try it again later.  ::)

Mondays wouldn't feel the same without a trick of the week!  :)

That's a smooth combo to include in a freestyle.

Takeshi also calls straitjacket his behind-the-back boomerang-to-lasso going from left to right (so his throwing arm is across the front of the body when he releases the top).

Ha! Barely back from EYYC and you still don't miss the trick of the week!

Nice trick! The fake whips is a yo-yo thing (how do they call them?). Jan did some before a horizontal whip on his freestyles. You did the finger nest on your freestyle. But this video is by Jakub, isn't it? Czech dominates Europe top spinning. But Hungary, Spain and France might be rising to challenge you!  :D

Yes, it's me  :) The trick was recorder a week ago and it is a coincidence that Jan did same whips in his freestyle  :D I'm not sure if yoyo players have name for it. It's great that guys from other countries also started to attend competitions.

I've heard from French guys that they are thinking about organizing French spintop nationals next year.

Trick # 61! Whoop-dee-doo!

I'm personally not a big fan of translating yo-yo string tricks to tops, so I was not planning to do it. But this morning it occurred to me that I could try it with the Chico 2.0 and its oversize tip. It makes it easy! After less that 10 tries I could do two from the same throw! By the way, after watching again your video I realize I did them backwards, with the tip pointing away from me.

Hi guys, I finally got to film another episode of Like a Footbag series. I'm really proud of this one and I hope you'll like it too.

Pro tip: Tight jeans make things a lot harder if you find it too easy ;D

Well done!
Don't you find the Giulia too heavy to do footbag tricks? I am sure you have filed the tip very well or your thighs would be full of bruises.

I am lazy practicing footbag tricks because I generally wear sandals and I need to put on tennis shoes to do it.

It is quite heavy but that means it is easier to control and it holds better on the shoes. I think it would be a lot harder to do with for example Trompos Cometa top, therefore I sacrificed the bit of pain. The tip on that Giulia is pretty worn out and not as sharp as it used to be (also newer S8 tops have more rounded tip).

This trick is probably not very innovative but I've learnt recently BtB passes from left to right so I wanted to use it in some combo :)

The key observation which might not be visible in the video is that in the end of pass you have to properly cross arms, one arm is crossed in front of your body and second arm is crossed behind the back. During right to left pass the BtB swing is done in the end of rollercoaster round but during left to right pass the swing is started in the beggining.

I just did it!  :)
Bazan might have done it in a freestyle. He wore a glove on the grinding hand, but I think it was more for show than because he really needed it for the trick.

How does it compare in difficulty with the normal around the arm? The setup is more complicated but perhaps there is more control. I am still working on getting more consistent on the regular one, and I hit the two-arm version once in a blue moon!   :-[

For me the crossed arm version is more difficult because it feels like you have less control during catch. You are controling string with crossed left arm so it is not very accurate but I practised crossed arm version much less than regular one so maybe it will change after some time  :)

There might be a possibility of using a string loop in a freestyle for sure :D

Nice trick!
Looks easier than To-Hell-and-Back, so I may switch to this for a while  ::)

Double Loop Race Track? I think Spiral Race Track would be more descriptive.

You're right about that name, I'll change it in a moment and thanks for the tip!

I wouldn't be so sure about what's easier. If you know the right movement (for Staircase to Heaven) to get the top all the way into your hand even though it's not spinning fast, To Hell and Back shouldn't be so hard. And since you invented it, you probably have that dialed in. The Spiral Race Track is a bit harder when managing the string's length and trying to hold everything tight :D.

I started working on Hell and Back since I saw the video you posted. So far I have only made it to purgatory and back ;) Meaning I am only using one wrap for the Staircase to Heaven part.
I will be working on this one as well.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Just did 73 using what I would call a left-hand string steal.  >:D
Well, actually it is more a trapeze into a loop than a whip. I need to throw even higher . . .  ::)

I'll give it a try but I'm not sure, if I can get the top high enough. Should I do everything with my right hand or can left hand help a bit with making a loop for a whip? :D

And new TOTW is right here!

I was trying to do it as close as yours, so I "stole" the string with the left hand while the right hand helped open the loop.
It should be easier to do the whip with the right hand, while the left hand opens the loop.
But doing all with the right hand and using something similar to a ghost catch to make the loop would be the best trick.

It is possible to throw a very high (starting) trapeze. The timing of the pull is different than for the normal one.

Mike, If I'm not mistaking, 6 years ago, at the 2011 Worlds, you were seen bouncing your top off of all sorts of upper body parts, as seen in this video.

Way to go Mike!

New one as always! And notice that that top is with fixed tip, I just find it better to control the angle. You can try it with bearing tip too but it will be harder imho.

It is interesting that this trick would be more difficult to do with a bearing top than a fixed tip top. I need to think about that.

That's a unusual combo and setup. Nice!
The most interesting part to me is that you figured out how to end with the correct wrap around the tip to finish with a gyroscopic flop.

I guess if somebody was using a the ring at the end of the string, they could do a regular corkscrew and finish with a ring flip.

You may seen Jakub's version that is a bit different. He does the Suns behind his hands but these are done in between hands and back (a bit harder in my opinion). But go ahead and try both!

Thanks Daniel for posting this! It's an honor to be a guest in the TOTW series!

I told Daniel about this trick in Reykjavik and in a few attempts he could do as many as I do on the video. I had the idea years ago (I showed it to Gus in Orlando), but I have not been able to do long runs because of misses. It's surely a regen trick, basically a Joker Choker around the body (I thought about naming it Joker's Revenge, but decided to go nice and called it Joker Hug  :P ). The only doubt is if it would be possible to stay facing the same direction at the steady regen spin or if the precession would force one to turn. It ain't easy, but I really look forward to seeing somebody do 20 or more catches in a row. That's a challenge for all you out there!  >:D

10+ Joker Hugs? Wonderful! If somebody can prove it regenerates is you. Maybe I should stop trying to keep facing in one direction and accept the rotation as part of the trick.

The wire walker around the leg doesn't look very difficult, but looks must be deceiving.I will definitely try it.

Good idea ta0!  :) We were also thinking about it in some way. For example choose 10 tricks to make level 1, choose next 10 tricks for level 2,...

We'll see if we can make it  :)

Number 90 is here!

Thanks for posting these Daniel.  Most of the time these tricks are above my current skill level, but I was able to do this one (#90).  Getting the jump part without the top falling off was tricky at first, but now I am more consistent with this part, getting the top to tip back up when it is behind my back still gets me sometimes though.  I look forward to getting better and trying more of the TOTWs.

Love it!  8) Very original!
Now you can add a move (e.g. a behind the back pass or a pirouette) between the wrap and the lasso and it would be super impressive! >:D

Those red tiles are rubber tiles, aren't they?  :-\ You wouldn't play the STB 2.5 over a hard surface with all that grass available.
Did I see a big wheel scooter?

Thanks guys  ;)

ta0: Red tiles are rubber. You can't see it in the video but there were quite wet conditions so moisture and mud would quickly mess up the bearing.
It is this scooter (https://www.kostkafootbike.com/en/kostka-tour/543-kick-scooter-kostka-tour-max.html#/color-mystic_grey). I bought it a year ago and I really like it. It is really fast on the road and often more comfortable for long rides than a bike (of course a bit slower).

It was a warm weekend here and perfect to throw tops. A couple of tricks I practiced were the Barrel Bounce and the Whip to Corkscrew.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Let's bring some inspiration for next week. This one is not very innovative and can be done just with some buttons but it could be used as a transition between other tricks and you can modify it in many different ways.

Is that a dyed Spintastics button?  :-\

Spintastics buttons are my favorite, because you can change the string without having to tie off the end of the string and thread it through a hole. Now there is a second reason to like them  :) But I see some people in the future designing buttons specifically for grinds.

That is button from John Markus made together with that top I believe (it has the same pattern). Although you should know that better, you gifted me that top ;D. But the trick should work just fine with regular Spintastics button too.

New trick of the week is here! Quite a difficult one in my opinion, not so original, someone must have done this before me too, but I haven't seen it anywhere (if someone knows the right name, let me know).

I would say it's an UD blizzard. I just tried it with some success (completed the first 4 passes).
I may have included a between-the-arms pass here and there while practicing UD orbits, but I don't recall ever doing under one arm and then the other. I wouldn't be surprised if Gus has done it, but I haven't seen it.
Fun trick!

Yes, that's the right name, I'm always confused with these names. As I said, someone must have done it before, but it is nice to have it on camera in slo-mo. You are more skilled in these tricks than I am, I have to practice them a bit more.

#96, getting close to 100! This one could be executed a bit better, the end of the string got a bit tangled around my fingers. When you look at it, focus only on the button and upper part of string, the rest of the string is just a bit messy there. But still, I hope you'll enjoy it and give it a try!

What in the world happened to the non-button end of the string?   :-\ On the phone screen I cannot figure it out.

Try not to focus on the non-button end of the string at all. Just focus on the button ;D

And new one from Jakub is here. Very nice concept in my opinion, give it a try too!

I have to confess that even with the "Through" in the name it took me several views to realize the difference with Neff's Wrist Wrap Whip (http://www.ta0.com/forum/index.php/topic,2992.0.html)  ;D
It's a great "player's" variation, but the public will probably miss it.

98! Almost there!!!

It's an elegant variation of an open whip. Thanks for the Christmas present!
It took me some tries but I was successful on Christmas day!  :)
I also got by pure chance one in which the button caught the string going to the left hand so the top was caught at the bottom of a triangle.

Let's see, what number comes after 99 . . . ?  ;D

Happy New Year everyone!

We made it to 100 tricks! It was not an easy task and we hope that these 100 TOTWs brought some inspiration to your spintop tricks.

We prepared something special for you this time! You can do this trick alone but if you have a friend nearby, who throws tops too, try it together!

What a nice way of receiving the new year!   8) 8) 8)

Congratulations on your 100th Trick of the Week!  :o :o :o

Great idea of doing a team combo! What a pleasure to see (from their POV) two of the very best players in the world sharing a top. By the way, I think this is the first video of two players each with a POV camera.

This reminds me the legend of Cyclops with their big centered eye. They were tall brothers known for their strength and skill, who worked together, but I don't recall them playing with tops  ;D

Thank you all, guys! We appreciate your support!

We have a little announcement to make. Our Trick of the week project will no longer have a "video every week" format. We discussed it with Jakub and agreed that it took a different direction than it was supposed to take. In last few months, we created some tricks "because we had to" instead of "because we wanted to" and they weren't always that nice and that isn't the way we wanted to do it. You don't have to be afraid that the TOTW series has come to an end, there will be new tricks in the future (I have some ideas and Jakub too for sure) but they won't be released every week. We will then enjoy making new variations and combos a lot more.

This also saves us some time that we plan to invest into our website and e-shop to develop top spinning on another levels than just tricks, but that is another topic.
