ooooo im so very happy to report ive finnally got the hang of regenerating with the "sewing machine" type catch (does that make sense? i think that makes sense......mmm ya i thnk so  :-X ) and currently my only limitation for keeping it going is consistency of catching it (currently at about 6-8 reps and then i usually miss  :'( ). i would like to thank the following people for helping me with encouragement, advice and tips on how to regen spin:

mr. Tao
mr. Neff
mr. Ketzaltlipoka
mr. Kevinm
mr. Jim (in paris)
mr. Joss
and mr. Earl (of whirl)
 
i cant thank you all enough for your help in furthering my understanding and skill in this very important aspect of spinning.

p.s ill upload a vid of this acheivement soon hopefully as "proof of life" lol :D
thank you for your support guys

omg!!!! i forgot to thank mr. Jymmyvespa, im so sorry por favor perdóname  :'(

well guys i realized tday that mr neff was right about what he said about practising making things that seemed impossible become possible. i shot this video tday waiting for my sister to get home, without the support and help from u guys here on the forum that which seemed utterly out of my league (yes yes i know experienced spinners will think the idea of re-gens being difficult utterly retarded lol) has become a reality and while i know that i have many years of hard work ahead and this is just the beginning of my journey i still am enjoying marinating in this success @-@. so id like to say thank u guys couldnt have done it without u............and never give up!!!!!

You got sewing machine! From there to doing roller coaster is a very little step and I bet you will find it easier and more fun (specially playing with the Ripcord).

I remember Jim Schrieber's instructions.  "More lift with your left hand (being left handed) and throw the string out each time.  Also keep the balance by adjusting your hands in and out."  He said, "It will feel natural after a thousand misses."
  And you know, It worked. ;)  That was about 50 years ago. :-[

I think most people (by this I mean me) end up merging the two and are doing some kind of "sewing coaster" or "roller machine" with some vertical top catches with pumping and some horizontal top catches without pumping but mostly tilted top catches hoping to gain some speed to move to another trick.

Looking good.  When I first started, I just kept telling myself, "I'm going to get better, eventually, I'll be doing ..."

Keep after it man!
