How to throw a Taiwan spin top
« on: August 01, 2018, 04:33:05 PM »

I got one of the large Taiwan spin tops. Is there a video on how to throw it? I know how to wrap it I think. I just need a video or something showing how to do the under hand throw. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Might as well get right to the best: From Taiwan, the Spintop Snipers.

Yeah that's how I would like to be able to throw it. I like the palm down under hand throw, but I can't find anywhere that teaches it. I tried wrapping it holding the knot between my pinky tip facing left, and then underhand throw it with no luck. It's like I am missing something.

Perhaps this video will help?
It shows grip and throwing in the beginning and at
around 4:20 into it are the target throws....
