Nope. as in you do a rollercoaster, you pop up then you thighten the string ( without releasing the string ) then you catch with the string that's thigh and then go into
another one...

A video would probably help more than me trying to explain it :P

EDIT: video incomming

Does a rollercoaster to string WITHOUT releasing the string something that has a name ? It's so satisfyling to pull out... It's kind of waves ( of Neff which is Jocker-chocker without releasing the string )...
Well done! It's a nice variation to try. I don't think it has a name.
Those who use the ring at the end of the string (e.g. Mexicans) often do not let go the string during roller coasters. But they do it differently, by re-grabbing a second time close to the dominant hand.

Anyone that can pull it off, try it, it's quite satifying... ( there is a lot that goes into it... b/c you need to give slack to the top as soon as it touches the string else the top bounce of the string :) Also pulling too early lead ot tangling :P

Anyway... Cheers y'alls!

Possible to pull off on a bearing top.. but harder as 'regenerating it' does not stop precession... Have a vid incomming... will post it tomorrow most likely

Thanks both of you!!!

To be completely fair, I really recorded it in one take.. I can do better I'm sure :)
I'll probably try to output 1 video per week, just to document more my progress ( and it's fun :) )

Cheers y'alls

Hey y'alls,

This is more a Q for Ta0 than anything else but anyone else can chime in... My plan is to try to record a couple of
videos per week just to try to get more visibility on spintop tricks and freestyle. I plan to post them on this forum
when they go up on youtube for your viewing pleasure ( I hope :P ) At least in the beginning I don't plan on editing them.
More like straight from my phone onto youtube and see what happens... If any one of you want to subscribe my channel
is  : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXUm3dnH8eLSH-K4fOk8AbQ  .

So now the question is ... should I continue growing this post or should I make another ? I was planning for now to just
post in here the new vids as they comes out if that's okay with you guys !

On the video note, tonight I was the gym class of my dauther and the flooring is nicely padded so I worked on 2 nice
lil' tricks that I was able to pull off in front of the camera. I will upload them tomorrow. Last thing is that I'll try to record
a couple of tutorials on stuff that is not obvious in spintops... like how to balence a top.. this sounds stupid but especially
with top like spintastic. They need balencing =)

Anyway. So long. Keep an eye out tomorrow for the videos :)

That's fine with me.

Maybe simple in the sense that they are short, but not simple in difficulty.

It's always great to see somebody posting new tricks or trick variations. Well done!  8)
