How to save a trick:

Jake landed this nasty banger and managed to get some air time whilst doing so


If superman could play kendama, he would probably land this first

Cool! Pretty awesome how he realises he's hit the light house, leaves  the ground and holds it all together!
Couple of questions.
Was he probably intending a multi turn aeroplane?
With one turn stuff you can quite easily see the landings but with multi turn stuff is it more luck?
Also with the multi turns how do you know how many turns you've done? Surely it's impossible to count unless you have slow mo video!

KenSan, don't really get your point, was more than 1-Turn from the get-go. If he was going for a xTurn Aero and had the sense to catch a lucky xTurn Lighthouse, that just makes it more crazy, but as with juggling, when working with numbers, after about 100 attempts, it suddenly becomes possible to sight a 5, 6, 7 flip anything, and I'm ready to believe that was an attempt at a 7 Turn Lighthouse. Did you see Dave Mateo's 9-Turn UFO? There was nothing 'hit and hope' about that one, you can see it in his eyes and then the smoothness of the catch. Catching a xTurn Lighthouse upwards of 3 turns requires immense instantaneous balance skills, so no wonder this one wanted to get away from old Jake.

Hey Milky I wasn't trying to make any point, I was just trying to get some perspective on these sorts of tricks. And Luck was probably the wrong word to use. Even with my short time playing I can see that there is a lot more involved than that.

Also I just watched the Dave Mateo edit and see what you mean about his assuredness in the catch.

Hey KenSan, no problem, realize that sounded a bit abrupt with hindsight! Glad you saw the 9-Turn UFO too, bonkers, right?
