UD Crazy 8 on Fixed tip ( with diabolo tip )
« on: April 06, 2018, 10:13:58 AM »

Hey, I've been playing quite a bit with my bearing QSH and I'm able to hit quite consistantly UD Crazy 8 for a couple of reps and I've been thinking, is there a way to get into UD crazy 8 with a fix tip ? It's probably from the trapeze mount I presume...

Cheers,
paxl

The UD crazy 8 can be done with a fixed tip.
From a trapeze you have to be quite fast in turning over the top. Going over the arm while pushing towards the crown is probably the fastest way.

The best way to get into it is directly from a UD boomerang/lasso, as there is no loss of spin in the set up.

Jakub Konecny had an amazing video on vimeo with nothing but UD tricks but it seems to be gone. Sadface.

Great video.  Lots of terrific stuff and a very realistic ending.  The top is always pushing to get back to that state of rest.  We are the few and the proud who challenge it to dance.

Small update: Today while playing with my trusty QSH, I was able on a fix brass diabolo tip to do a UD boomerang to lasso to crazy 8 / MGR and get back in hand.... that felt surreal!

Thanks for the tips!!!
