whats the name.......
« on: January 12, 2015, 09:44:36 PM »

i cant remember the name for the trick where: right after a roller coaster you bring the string taught under your upper arm and pass the top over your now horizontal bicep to the line on the other side. the trick that daniel and tyler do so well, anyone know what the trick's called? or better yet can anybody give me any tips on how to best go about doing them? i can catch this trick about a lil over half the time but i feel theres something im missing about it  :( thx

I believe the trick you're referring to is the spintop equivalent of offstring yoyo arm orbits:

As a yoyo player first, this trick came naturally to me. The only advice I could give is to try and catch the top as close to your hand as possible. This ensures greater accuracy in this (and other) trick(s).

Jakub was the first one to do this trick with a top. I think he just called it Around the Arm. It is originally a diabolo trick.
I was with Gus when he tried it for the first time (inspired by Jakub's video).

Actually, if you can catch it "a lil over half the time" you are doing as well as I am doing... I need to practice this trick more. Then there is the one over both arms...

It is really easy to do with a diabolo. Learn that first then it should make the top easier. The important part is getting the string under your arm in the same place each time.
