I expect the kendama/county cricket fanbase crossover is pretty small, but since I've made this thread, I might as well put them all here.

Flat throws, strangely enough. I must confess, the only reason I was landing them with small lunar seemed to be that 8 times out of 10, that was the cup that came up!?!
Just tried these. Came close, but not quite. Seems like a flat throw must go to Opposite Lunar though, no? Needs a 1.5 or half-spin to go to Lunar, unless I’m not doing exactly what you are.
 

It's quite a late throw after the tama swings back up; at the most, the ken is doing a quarter turn I guess.
okay, cheers, I think I get it. Although I've not got it yet. :-)
Managed to get it a couple of times. It seems to come out to Big Cup most often for me, and with a half spin. I guess it depends on how you catch and/or release the ken. It was a little easier once I got the ball to rise up higher on the swing. Phew, it's hot out there... :-)

A live stream (archived) from earlier. Skip to 27:45. Unfortunately, the sound's terrible, & it's not zoomed in enough. :-(

179. [from Back-of-weak-hand Lighthouse] > Throw to Loaded Back-of-weak-hand balance
- Throw the tama (with the hole facing upwards)
- After it has turned 180°, catch the tama on the balanced ken's spike
- Maintain the balance, *still*, for 2 seconds+.

RULES
Anyone can enter. Just join this forum!
Trick Rules
- You should start the new transition from the finish position of the previous trick. i.e. You can just place the kendama into position. You don't have to do the previous move, but you can if you want to. But if so remember to...
- Hold the start and finish positions of the combo still for a couple of seconds please.
- You must wait to have your attempt verified by the previous setter before setting the next step.
- Use any competition-sized kendama. (16cm ken, 60mm ball)
- You cannot reply to your own trick.
- You must wait to re-enter until 5 other people have done a combo after you set one.
- Your trick set may end on an active ballance (i.e Candle Balance) but you can use an active ballance in a transition of a trick/set
Video Rules (To help for a nicer compilation video)
- Make sure you have adequate lighting. Please film in daylight if possible. Clips usually look very poor in artificial light.
- Please film in Landscape, not Portrait, not Square.

KenSan, Jakub Z, Woodsy, John & The Void must sit out this round.
@Dimensions is now allowed back in.
The EC has stalled again. My fault for setting a hardish one maybe, but I've got it twice when I've had a go. So, I challenge @Dimensions @kendamatty @I.A.M @paulsayer @mreasyguy @Jak  to get it done! Hold still to finish...
