[TRICK] - The Lazy Start
« on: April 07, 2012, 12:54:11 PM »

Hi all!
Since I can't snap start AT ALL (yet), I made up a different way to quickly start a top without having to fully wind it...
As I mention in the video, I hope I am not claiming someone else's invention for myself! If so, please just consider this a tutorial  ;)

The Lazy Start

Happy Easter to everyone!  ;D

Thank you guys!!!
I take it it didn't exist before then? Nice! :D

It really is a faster way to start a top, even though I will still keep trying the snap start until I can get it right and consistent...

Grazie Mojo, the SuperS8 T-shirt is way cool! ;D

Nice thinking out of the box!

I often start my Sundia monobolo with owb the "ripcord" way as it is easy to hold the "tip" with the hand.  And at last year Flatland I showed a method of starting by holding the owb tip of a STB (already on the string) with the fingers and snap starting with the left hand.
