Hey, I can now do (sometimes) the first part of Wormhole.  :) Getting the two tops going in the combined crazy 8's is exhilarating. I think for me that was the biggest stumbling block of the patch.  Chris, are you going to change anything?  Can you clarify the rules for Legs?

Well done Ta0!  My best tip for wormhole is practice with poi (i used racquetballs in the original Wormhole video) until the pattern is automatic.

I don't plan to change anything, but I still want to re-shoot the video to clean stuff up.  Legs is one of the tricks that needs a better view point and from start to finish.  Basically it is Joker Choker between the legs, from both sides of both legs. Overhand catch (Rollercoaster) always goes from the left side of the leg to the right, and underhand catch (Drumbeat) always goes from right to left.  And you weave it between both legs.  I like to do it in this order:
overhand catch under right leg from left to right
underhand catch under left leg from right to left
overhand catch  under left leg from left to right
underhand catch under right leg from right to left
That's it!

Something aside that has always been: I use the "Show unread posts since last visit" button a lot.  If you are the only new post, the topic is not listed  ???  It IS listed in the "Click here to try all unread topics"  No big deal, you have plenty to do, just thought you would want to know.

This weekend I added the patch do I have almost done, I have to train more trick 8. Wormhole. As for trick 7. Whip Wrist Wrap the only difficulty I see is that is best done with a thick rope wound on the forearm faster because it weighs more, but I do it with a normal rope and a big top.
I hope to upload a video next week

Un saludo  ;) ;)

Yesterday I filmed a provisional video for the Neffy patch.  I decided to just post it or I wouldn't be able to do it until after worlds (spintop and football).  But some of the tricks are not as clean as I wish.

I'll also add the patch design to the final one.

Thanks guys.

I find these patches a good motivation for practicing new tricks out of my comfort zone. I don't know if I would have ever attempted Wormhole if it wasn't for this patch, it looked too frustrating to learn.  The Legs trick gave me fits as it forced me to pass the top under the leg in a way completely different to what I do automatically.  And the Finger Curl in Liberty is something I always had wanted to practice, since I saw it on the Spintastics site a dozen years ago, but never got around to do it.

Chris,
I'm working on the super 8.  On the second transfer the tip has a full wrap on it. Is that right or am I doing something wrong?
Kirk

You can keep it from wrapping around the tip.
I guess you start your crazy 8's by going under the hand. That puts a twist on the string that is untwisted when you go over.  If you consistently transfer on the switch from over to under the string will not accumulate wraps. So you should go: U-O-U-O-U-O-T-U-O-U-O-U-O-T-U-O-U-O-U-O-T- .  .  .  You start the transfer AFTER completing the Over loop.

I finally got a chance to watch the video -  well done Jorge!  Thank you especially for demonstrating that the tricks are attainable.  I accept all tricks as presented.  I like to start Zorro from the opposite direction, but with your way the Z is correctly oriented for the audience - I need to try it that way.  And I need to work on the patch design!  Yikes!  Keep on me about that!

Thanks!!!!

Ha! I did not realize I had done the Zorro in the opposite direction!

I suggest a big N with a top in the background for your patch.
