new trick
« on: August 11, 2017, 12:14:36 AM »

hey everyone just wanted to say hello and get my first post under my belt.  I've been throwing tops now for about five months and cant get enough.  What's great is i was able to get my brother hooked aswell so it keeps us motivated.
This forum has been a great place to get answers on our questions as we learn too. About a month ago my bro came up with an idea for a trick, we have been calling it REENTRY. I was hoping the community of spin top enthusiasts could tell me if they have ever seen this trick.  I can't find anything that looks like it. Hope to get some wisdom on the trick and maybe some pointers on how to clean up my throw. this is my first video and it seems to me i could smooth out my style.
Heres my video     https://youtu.be/k5vOD1CMmJo :)

Wow! Just 5 month and you can roller coaster like that! :o You are a future freestyle competitor!  8)

I called the trick: "walk the plank". You can see it in the Over the Top video:

Welcome to the forum!
If you continue practicing like that I will see you in future nats/world contests  :)

Good work, Jatt!  You are progressing nicely.  I enjoyed the video and also enjoyed the dog in slow motion in the background!
