Regeneration Style Tricks
« on: July 27, 2017, 06:17:40 PM »

Hello Everyone!

Long time no see, but I will have you all know I have been very busy with performances and have been practicing heavily. I am very interested in some fancier "regenerative style" spintop tricks. Something that might be a nice crowd pleaser? I have seen some Colombian regenerative tricks but I forget and cannot find the videos. I believe it was something like "electric spider"? I don't remember at all!

I would appreciate your help!

Thank you,

The Colombians don't do much regeneration. The Electric Spider is a regen trick from Salvador, aka Huitzi, who is Mexican. But I wouldn't call it a crowd pleaser.

Regen tricks are not in themselves the most showy but of course they allow you to do a continuous routine.
The general public tends to prefer top tricks where the top remains vertical, like a normal top, instead of horizontal. If you don't do right-half-orbits already, you should learn it.
Do you do any of the string-behind-the-neck regens (neck-tie, hummingbirds or bow-tie)? I think those are kind of showy.
Do you do the Wheel of Fortune (regen suns) already? I put up a tutorial recently.

For inspiration, not necessary regen tricks, you have to check The Trick of the Week every Monday!

Dear ta0,

I do not know what any of these tricks are, haha. I have found a video for "turbo pascales" and am currently working on this trick.

You are most likely correct, however, I would like to incorporate some "regen" style tricks into my routine to demonstrate the variety of styles and what can be done with spintops to my audience.

When you say "Half left half right" are you refering to the "joker choker"?

I do not know what any of those tricks are, so I can safely say no, I don't know any of those tricks.

I cannot find any information on the neck tie, or bow tie, or the hummingbird trick on the forum, except that the hummingbird is similar to the "turbo pascales"

Will you please post a link to the wheel of fortune? I am curious to see this trick!

I will keep an eye on the trick of the week monday! I already use many of these tricks in my routines, though most of them are not regen tricks.

Thank you!


Hello Jack,

You are a wizard! But can anyone post some videos of spider drums or sunspiders? (I can do under the legs style tricks already even hackey the top and catch it)



Mermouy,

Me three!

Thank you all for your help, I already havee a lot to work on!

I said, "right half-orbits". I already pointed you to a video by John Buechele with many of them.

Those tricks consist on holding the string on each hand, having the string go behind the neck and catching the top alternating between the left and right side. If you catch both sides trapeze style it is called neckties (corbatines) and was invented by Gustavo Castro. I you catch both sides sewing-machine style (underhand) it is called hummingbirds and was first done by Salvador. If you alternate the catches like in joker choker, I called them bowties when I started to do them.

On this video I made for Adrian's patch you can see:
Righ Half-Orbits at 2:00 and 3:45 (called them Crank on the video to match Adrian's name on his list and to include the wire walker at the start)
Wheel of Fortune at 2:26 and 4:18,
Bowties at 3:00 and 4:46 (called them Neckties on the video because I used them to replace that trick on Adrian's list)
