Title: TA0's Trick Patch
Post by: ta0 on October 30, 2014, 09:02:36 PM
Here is my patch:

(http://www.ta0.com/tricks/images/ta0-patch.gif)


After about 15 years of playing I wanted to make a nostalgia patch with tricks I developed over all these years. There are no new tricks on the patch, they are all tricks I posted video before (except for a variation of drum roll that I put there as optional). As far as I know I posted the first videos of all of them, gave them names and made them known. Some might have been created independently by somebody else (I bet the boomerang pirouette had). I had quite a few tricks to chose from, enough for at least three patches, and deciding which ones to leave out was sometimes hard. In the end I decided to have alternative tricks for each of the 8 tricks for a total of 16. I left out double-tip tricks and stacked tricks as not everybody has the tops required. I did put Pencil Sharpener because it can be done with several other tops besides the HP.

To obtain the patch you only need to do 8 tricks, no matter which ones. That gives you the right to a patch with a white belt. If you do one trick of each number, you can put the green belt. Every trick of one of the two lists (a or b) gives you the right to the brown belt. If anybody ever completes all 16 they can use the black belt. I will have some real patches made with a white edge that you can paint accordingly.

(http://www.ta0.com/tricks/images/ta0-patch_white_m.gif) (http://www.ta0.com/tricks/images/ta0-patch_green_m.gif) (http://www.ta0.com/tricks/images/ta0-patch_brown_m.gif) (http://www.ta0.com/tricks/images/ta0-patch_black_m.gif)

(for the forum signature you can incorporate the color on the background of the outside letters to make it more compact)

The tricks are:

1 a. Staircase to Heaven
At least 3 wraps. Important: The top has to end spinning on the hand above the head. Throwing the top in the air is not valid.
1 b. Reversible Corkscrew
At least 3 wraps. The top needs to go around the arm or hand, it cannot end doing MGR below the hand.
2 a. World Hitchhiker
At least 3 revolutions around the stretched finger. No more than one-and-a-half twists around the tip when you start it.
2 b. Boleadoras
At least one revolution on each side and above the head.  No more than one-and-a-half twists around the tip when you start it.
3 a. Upside Down Corkscrew
At least 3 wraps.
3 b. Vortex (Horizontal Corkscrew)
At least 3 revolutions around the arm (this means 2 wraps while setting up the trick).
4 a. Wizard Gyro
At least 4 reversals, each time the top stopping for one second with the crown pointing towards the camera.
4 b. Flip Flop
At least 2 flops in each direction, alternating front and back. Top controlled after each flop.
5 a. Spinning Spider
At least 15 reps. Can start from throw. Fixed tip.
5 b. Drum Rolls
At least 15 reps. Can start from throw. Fixed tip. The 2-arm version is optional.
6 a. Upside Down Boomerang-Lasso to UD Crazy 8's
At least two complete UD Crazy 8's.
6 b. Pencil Sharpener
If done with the bottom of a Mexican top I won't require inversion, just to keep it 2 seconds.
7 a. Jump Rope plus Circular Saw
No more than one-and-a-half twists around the tip to start.
7 b. Lasso Pirouette
From boomerang.
8 a. Loop Regens Over Hands
At least 15 reps. Fixed tip.
8 b. Crossover
Can use Spintowin bearing-tip-points when they become available.

Of course, all the tricks need to finish spinning on the hand. Below is the video. But read the descriptions carefully as on the video I many times do more repetitions or wraps than needed.

The first video compilation of tricks I ever made I called it "over the top"!  ;D

The original thread for Spinning Spiders is here: www.ta0.com/forum/index.php/topic,352.msg2769.html#msg2769
I was trying to figure out how to do Salvador's trick Fishing Spiders and came up with this version. The thread has the original video and Salvador's explanation of the differences. I generally don't have trouble finding names for tricks but this time asked for help with possible names for my variation and the winner was one of the Neff proposals, Spinning Spider  ;D

The best tricks and multiple ways to earn a patch.  Thanks Ta0 for pushing us all to be better.

Just out of curiosity could we have a rundown on which tops you chose for the tricks?  Many styles may be more suited for the trick than others.

Very good question, Rick.
I mostly used modded Hollow Points (a red and a silver one) for the fixed tip tricks and Giulias for the bearing tricks (I replaced the yellow with the nice dye job for a blue one if I was concerned of the top flying away and getting marred). The exceptions were the following.
For Staircase to Heaven I wanted a better walker than the narrow tips on my HPs, so I used a stock QSH with original tip.
For Flip Flop I believe a thicker neck gives you more torque for the flop, so I used a QSH bearing (it makes little noise because I took it from my display case and the bearing still has grease).
On the video I do the UD Lasso with an HP but I also recorded it with a Giulia bearing tip. I also recorded Pencil Sharpener with the bottom of a QHS bearing.

Now, a top that would facilitate significantly some of these tricks would be a Chico 2.0 because of the super-sized head. I would recommend it for the around-the-world tricks and the upside-down tricks. Also, an oversize/heavy top (e.g. a 3" or 4" Markus HDPE) should facilitate the regen tricks.

well done sir! 15 years of hard work have made you a world expert and that video proves it. i enjoyed watching that immensely. my training for your patch begins..........NOW!

I recommend you start with Reversible Corkscrew as that is a trick everybody should know. Then learn Wizard Gyro, which is probably the easiest one.  The around-the-world tricks (2a, 2b, 7a) are the next ones, but only if you can practice in a park where a flying top will not hit somebody or get lost! I guess they are more summer tricks. From there, perhaps Staircase to Heaven or Pencil Sharpener, but they start to get more difficult. Leave for the very last Vortex, UD lasso, Drum Roll, and Crossover as they will probably be the most frustrating to learn.

Good job! It's really great patch, difficult and interesting tricks. Division to classes A and B and more difficulty levels is also good idea. I hope we'll get black belt soon  >:D

 :) I think that the black belt is as difficult as learning Czech .  .  wait!   :P  To tell you the truth, I have seen Daniel and you do some of these tricks on freestyles, so I fully expected you to be the first ones to achieve it.

You are the first one to try it, congratulations miguelanchelo!
It was a very good attempt. A few of the tricks need a little more work.
My comments in the order that you filmed them:

1b- Reversible Corkscrew
Very good.
3b- Vortex
I wish the video was more clear. It seems to me that at least the last one goes in front of the arm and not around the arm. I would like you to record it again.
3a - UD corkscrew
You invented a new way to get into it! I can accept it. But if you are going to film the tricks again, I would prefer that the top was more vertical and that you clearly completed at least 3 turns (looks more like 2 and a half).
1a - Staircase to Heaven
I said that I was going to be picky on this one (Zenith already had it on his patch). On the first attempt you come down below your head. On the second one you throw the top in the air and catch it again. It was very close, but I want it a little better.
5b - Drum Rolls
Very good (this was one of the ones I considered difficult).
4a - Wizard Gyro.
Very good.
4b -Flip Flop
Very good.
6a - UD boomerang/lasso to UD crazy eights.
This trick requires the lasso to catch the top upside down. You cannot lasso and then reverse the top. This is a difficult trick.

You did a great job. Four are perfect and one acceptable. You are very close on Staircase to Heaven and probably on Vortex.
If you replace 6a by 2a or 2b you should get the patch soon.

Were you using a Energia Elec-Trick top for some of the tricks?
Title: Re: TA0's Trick Patch
Post by: miguelanchelo on January 19, 2015, 08:00:57 AM
si, estaba usando el trompo de tamaño normal de rodamiento, de energía, el juego con el es bastante bueno.

oh great ta0 i beseech thee! i hath done my best and i here presenteth it before you for review! that being said....this really was good fun, i had a great time learning the new tricks and a couple of them were ones i was meaning to learn for awhile and this gave me the final motivation to learn them, thanks ta0  ;) im afraid i had to film this half one day and half the next day because of film time constraints and the fact that even jack cant perform very well for extended periods after 3am :( well hope you enjoy and thanks

tops used:

staircase to heaven: stock trompo grande (fixed)
reversible corkscrew: QSH (fixed "C" tip)
wizard gyro: stock QSH (bearing)
flip flop: QSH (bearing, with a modified BK cap)
drum rolls: stb 2.0 (fixed)
upsidedown boomerang to upsidedown figure 8's: QSH (fixed "C" tip)
pencil sharpener: QSH (bearing, with modefied BK cap)
loop regens: stb 2.0 (fixed)

Well done! You got it!  :)  8)

You really surprised me with the one-hand loop regens! You can call that variation your own! It was funny that you had to use one hand to protect your teeth. The reason is that using one hand the "gear ratio" is lower and you have to swing the top much faster than with two hands.

I wish the camera showed the catch on the UD boomerang and Pencil Sharpener (and with a faster shutter). On the Staircase to Heaven I would prefer that the spiral goes over a good part of the forearm and not just around the wrist.

I'll resize the white-belt patch so it matches the rest of your patches (but at the rate you are going you will need to make them smaller pretty soon  ;) ).

If you mean actually making a cloth patch, look for a custom embroidery shop (busca: "bordado de escudos").
I will send a cloth patch to whoever obtains mine.

If you mean, making your own virtual trick patch, you just need to come up with a list of 8 tricks (they don't have to be original, they can even be classics), video them and make a design for the patch. Anybody can propose his own trick patch (I want one from Mark Hayward  ;) )

I have been waiting for some videos from the Czech Republic  ;)
I believe you mentioned on another thread that you were missing World Hitchhiker and Boleadoras.
The trick for doing them is: wait for the precession of the top to approach the position where the tip points in the direction you want to swing the top. The faster you swing it, the smaller the angle between this direction and the tip when you start. Then it is just a matter of having confidence and don't stop. It is just that. Of course, you need a place outdoors where you won't lose the top if it flies away.

 :D Thanks for info, I found similar one about month ago in some thread and I understand it but it's still not working well. I'm able to do Hitchhiker maybe twice from 10 and I've never done Boleadoras. Next week I'll have to do final state examination for Bachelors degree and I also want to make two videos for boomerang contest before deadline  :) Then I'm going to start practising again, weather is good so it's not problem to practise outdoors :)

Wonderful! They are spin perfect! Both of you are officially spintop black belts!  ;)

The quality of your videos is so good that people should watch those instead of my original video!

I will order the cloth patches very soon.

For others: no need to wait until you can do all 16 tricks and earn the black belt. When you can do 8 tricks post a video and get my patch.
Also, anybody can post their own patch list. The tricks don't have to be original. By the way, I need to work on Miguelanchelo's patch.

I particularly like Jakub's jump rope: he starts immediately from the trapeze (half a twist of the string). That is better than mine.

Well done, Miguelanchelo!  8)

I believe you did 12 tricks there.
These are very good: 1a- Staircase to Heaven (perfect!), 1b- Reversible Corkscrew, 2a- World Hitchhiker, 3a- UD corkscrew, 4b- Flip Flop, 5a- Spinning Spider, 7a- Jump Rope + Circular Saw, 7b- Lasso Pirouette, 8a- Loop Regenerations, 8b - Crossover (nice!)
I wish you had filmed Vortex a little closer because I cannot clearly see what the top does.
Drum Roll kind of looks like left handed half-orbits. What top did you use? I am sure that with a heavier top you could pump and make it look more like my drum rolls.

Anyway, you earned the white belt for sure. Congrats!!!!
I am sure you can easily do the rest of the tricks and get the black belt.
Title: Re: TA0's Trick Patch

Drum Rolls is the only one I don't like too much, but you don't need to redo it. I would like to see a closer view of Vortex.

You need to do one of the number 6 tricks (UD lasso or Pencil Sharpener) to get the green belt. Actually, UD lasso would also give you the brown belt. The other trick you are missing is boleadoras, which is easier than many of the tricks you have already done.

Gustavo me ha hablado de ti. Está muy impresionado por lo bueno que eres. ¡Mejor elogio como jugador de trompo imposible!   8)

EDIT: You are also missing Wizard Gyro on this video, but that is an easy trick.

I really do try to make the boleadoras, BUT IS IMPOSSIBLE !!! The tip of the top facing the wrong side if you want quue is that spin around both sides !! Any advice on how to do? :P :P :P :P

the tip should be facing forward when you start the rotation, and the top should have a good amount of spin left.
its kind of a hit or miss type thing until you figure out the exact timing from experience

oh great ta0 i beseech thee once again to look upon this new video and pass yee judgment!!!

column (A)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BC4vdbM63o0

column (B)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8IyILtim-U

the pirouette was really fast so i made a slomo vid where the top is a lil more visible, i didnt really think it a good idea to re record with another more visible top as doing this trick once was sketchy enough from a medical standpoint (vp shunt)
dont worry ta0 im a big boy and so far im not feeling any ill effects lol  ;D

oh great ta0!!!! come forth to pass thine judgement sir!!!

edit: i forgot to mention: miguelanchelo you are a big inspiration for me and seeing you perform those super complicated tricks gives me motivation to keep pushing my limits. goodluck with the boleadoras and thanks budd

You got your black belt Jack!!! Very well done!!!  :)  8) 

I would have felt very bad if you had hurt yourself on the pirouette lasso. Specially because I promised you an alternate trick but I procrastinated too much. On the other hand, now it is done without change!

Did you lose the tip at the end of the Flip Flop?
Perhaps I would have preferred longer string on the around the world tricks but, considering the confined space where you did them, that was more than enough! Didn't you break anything?  ???

Miguelanchelo asked about the real patch. I have meant to make them since Jakub and Daniel completed the patch.  :-[ Now I am ordering them for real!

Congratulations!!!!

You start the swing with the tip pointing in the direction you are going. Jack started the swing towards the front, so his tip pointed towards the front. I generally start towards the back, so the tip point towards the back. Go somewhat fast without stopping. The rest, as Jack said, is timing that comes with practice.

Voy a mandar fabricar los parches ahora y los tendré en unas dos semanas. Te lo envío junto al de Zenith.

You should have known I'd come after you eventually Ta0  >:D.  Here's my white belt application, let me know how I did.  I've got a feeling I'm going to have to wait until all this snow melts to attempt many of your other tricks ha ha.  Got a dirty look from the wife when I tried a couple of the crazier ones inside.

Well done Jospin! All the tricks are clean. You got it! I'll mail you the embroidered patch in the next couple of days (and you'll get your ITSA patch too  ;) ).

Looking forward to your other belts. But, as you said, some are outdoors summer tricks.

Here is my video of the ta0 patch.
I'm missing the jump with a circular saw, because my operated knee doesn't let me jump yet.

Very, very well done! A pleasure to watch! 8)

Most of the tricks are a 10! You start with a perfect Staircase to Heaven. I'm surprised you got the upside-down boomerang so fast after I just pointed you to the instructions on how to do it a couple of days ago :o

I know you could do Jump Rope before you hurt your knee, so you'll get the full black belt once it gets better. For now you officially have the brown belt. I'll send you the embroidered patch.

Thanks for trying it, and congratulations!

thanks ta0. Your instructions for the inverted launch have been phenomenal, I have posted it on the forum to help everyone. Without the instructions I would not have been able to make the patch.

Ha! You did the Jump Rope on one foot!!!  :o

You got your BLACK BELT! Congratulations! :)
