Things to do when throwing a Top down?
« on: June 18, 2018, 09:21:44 PM »

Hello! I am Anthony DeFoe, I am new here.
some of you may know me from certain things.

I was wondering what kinds of tricks could i do from throwing my top down, i have a bearing top by the way.
any links of videos teaching me any tricks from when the top is like this



maybe some things Chris Neff did in his 2016 performance would be cool.
but anyways thank you  :)

Welcome Anthony,
From your picture it looks like you want to learn tricks from a trapeze mount. Have you tried the Spintastics trick patches yet? There are quite a few tricks in there that require a trapeze mount and there are many trick videos out there of people demonstrating these tricks. Check out the patches tab for more information.

Welcome Anthony,
The list of tricks that start with a trapeze throw is very long.  The gateway skill for these is to learn how to control the angle of the top while hanging on the string.  Move toward the point to make it stand up. Toward the crown to lay low.  A short list:
Trapeze to hand
Around the world
upside down merry go round
elevator (manual style)
High toss
whip catch
tip grab (bearing tops)
drumbeat
hop the fence
Also try to learn to drop the top from your hand (regular throw) onto the string.
