Coo, it's really close on the final switch.... When judging, I often adopt the line of "Are there any reasons why I should fail this?", and in this case....

... I don't think so, so - You're good!! :-)

So, what's number 55?
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!

So next (#55) is something like a whirlwind swap and pop:

1. In tama grip, throw the ken and tama up
2. Grab the ken with your weak hand
3. Drop the tama and pop it back up
4. Throw a whirlwind from your weak hand to your strong hand
5. Catch tama in base cup.

There is some creativity possible with the grips. Just take what goes best for you, if the above steps are in it..you're good!

Nice idea!

Okay, so Joris, Sonicpearse, Void and Hans are now all in the draw to win the Sunrise or the Mystery prize. Meanwhile...

55.  Weak hand Aeroplane > Whirlwind Swap and Pop
RULES
Trick Rules
- 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.
- You must wait to have your attempt verified by the previous setter before setting the next step.
- Use any competition-sized kendama.
- 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.
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.
[user]HansNickmans[/user], [user]Cliffdama[/user], [user]joris.schweppe[/user], [user]Sonicpearse[/user] and [user]The Void[/user] must all sit out round 55.

Good luck everyone else!

Good to have a couple of new players involved since #50. If you've never "Endlessed" before, join in!
Yeah, looking at you, [user]RodDama[/user]! :)

The trick is the difficult bit. This should be the easy bit.

I did state that the final catch had to be in base cup. Although I like this way of catching the ken and going into whirlwind.
Trying it myself, I caught the ken in a pen grip, flipping it into a whirlwind with my thumb and index finger, catching it in another pen grip.

Not saying that it has to be done that way, but I did say base cup...

- Dimensions, I'm gonna try your way this evening, looks nice -

Sorry for the late reply

Looks good to me! The whirlwind was possibly a little short on rotation, but I'm going to allow it, since the ken did go full circle. 

So, what's the next move Mark?

Awesome! :D

Okay so the next trick is.....

Make the ball drop down and swing to Bat

Relatively easy I guess, but I really can't think of anything else!!
