Yeah, that was a big surprise! I've fluked it once before but I don't think it's a trick you can get consistent at (?) - that kendama, a completely beaten up Oase promod (not mine), was strung really long and had a very notchy base cup. But that being said I didn't get it again after you left Sam!

Also I once fluked this:

Cool move!

I'm even more impressed with the levitating book in the first pic. I know you're good [user]Dimensions[/user] but that's magic!

Yeah, I did it a couple of times in Still Seeking Six, but a beat-up base cup sure helps. You can get "more consistent" at it, but "consistent" is probably too tough. String control!
If you don't want to buy my books, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!
