Because I can't beat any of the current records (80% skill 20% short attention span) I started a new one:

BATON TWIRL ENDURANCE

I'm laying down the very beatable score of 20 rotations because thats the best I did before my forearm started to ache too much.
The rules are:
1. The twirl must be at a decent speed
2. No touching - as soon as any part of your body e.g. hand, arm, face, teeth, touch either ken or ball its over.

I counted every time my hand came up and I counted 20 but I await verification.



The gauntlet is down!!!

F.A.O. Greg the Strangler: I had Napalm Death on whilst filming.
BKO 2011 - 2nd, SRC 2011 - 2nd,  SRC 2012 - 2nd, EJC 2012 (unicorns) - 2nd, SRC 2013 - 2nd, BKO 2013 - 3rd - Always the bridesmaid...

I think you're counting "1" as you start the trick, but that's before you've done a full rotation, so that should be "0", and we'd call that a total of 19.

We'll count "0" at the point where the ken is horizontal, and in front of your left shoulder (as seen in this video) for the first time. Up to that point we consider that you're still in the 'entry' to the trick.

Still, well done for setting a new record! :-)

That's some impressive control! Interesting that he doesn't seem to take any effort in his set-up... just straight into the next attempt as fast as you like.

If your friend joins the forum, we'll add it to the list in the first post of the thread.  :)

PS Aren't they, strictly speaking, Spacewalk 1-Turn Lunars? You could conceivably exit the Spacewalk without the extra rotation on the ken, but it would probably take a lot more accuracy for the landing?

Was flicking through this post having a go at some records and then realised that this record hadn't been set.

So here is my record, which will be beaten pretty quickly i expect: 22 Around the Worlds.

P.S... sorry about the music, last.fm on in the background.

Congrats sir! Added to the first post.
This makes us realise we have not yet distinguished between "Consecutive tricks" and "Consecutive connected tricks"[1]. We'll have to update that at some point.
 1. Your ATWs are "connected". i.e. You did not reset to start position between each trick.

No need to apologise, nothing wrong with either method. It's just that the differentiation hadn't occurred to us until now.
Some tricks would not be connectable though... eg Slip Grip Special.

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!
