Title: I accidently shot & edited another video. ::)
Post by: Neff on December 05, 2009, 06:14:57 AM
All tops this time, two things I haven't seen before but I doubt are new - sort of an aerial wire walker (skywalker?) and suns with a release.

Music kicks in after a few seconds...

You are such a smooth player!

The "Skywalker" is really impressive. It starts like an elevator but I don't recall seeing the high, airborne, release.  It may be a new trick. The suns-to-trapeze do look familiar (Gerardo?)

Thanks a lot for posting this video!

PS: I'll add Vimeo embedding support (and perhaps video in general) in the future).

Great stuff...Love the Skywalker!  The released Suns look like a lot of fun too...and a more manageable way to keep them going than the regen version that I totally suck at.  I'm gonna havta try those out.  I'm also impressed with the fixed tipped corkscrew.  I haven't had any luck w/that yet.  The top always flies off in the direction of my face  :o

I know, right?!  Grazed my cheek a couple of times.  Sharing what I've learned - a not-loose well-spaced wrap seems to help, so does starting it with the top leaning slightly right rather than left, minimal force to get it started on the spiral, and NO arm motion as it goes down.  It's probably not smart of me giving fixed tip corkscrew advice; in the event somebody follows it and gets smashed in the face I'd be obligated to send flowers, at least.  :-\

You are a very smooth player.  I applaud you for your continued work with the top.   ;D

0h! The skywalker was my Apollo 11 secret trick! :( Congrats!

Very interesting the trapece catches to cable car or to elevator.

Some smooth snap-start and a incredible flow with Jocker-Choker to long-lasso.

The weel of fortune to Roller coaster combined are surprising to me because is another way to  flow that trick.


And working without shoes! Your feet fingers are lucky boys! :-D
