Hey Rob, since catching the ken could be seen as the next "static point", we're going to tweak your description and say that the Drill must be done immediately after the catch. (i.e. Continuous movement required) Please watch out for that when approving any attempts.

[user]DamaLife24[/user], [user]The Void[/user], [user]Dimensions[/user], [user]Kev[/user], [user]kendamatty[/user], [user]SamB[/user], [user]mreasyguy[/user], [user]Dimensions[/user], [user]the milky oolong[/user], [user]jsirois31[/user], [user]shalafi[/user] & [user]donald grant[/user] are now entered into the prize draw for rounds 76-100.

Next trick is:
93. [from Back of Weak Hand Inverted Balance] > Drop to Fast Hand Drill
1) start in a Back of Weak Hand Inverted Balance - balance for at least 2 seconds
2) drop everything and catch the ken
3) Immediately do [noembed]http://juggling.tv/13953[/noembed] (20 degree margin of error)
4) catch the drill and stay in that position for a few seconds
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, not Square.
Successful entrants get put in the prize draw.
[user]The Void[/user], [user]shalafi[/user], [user]donald grant[/user], [user]DamaLife24[/user] & [user]Dimensions[/user]must sit out round 93.
Good luck everyone!

Had a go at this tonight - i love the trick but it is very hard - but I'm determined to get it (even if I'm not the first to post a video)! Another try tomorrow...

Sadly, the promised Mystery Prize was never delivered. So, a little late, BKA presented [user]Sonicpearse[/user] with this Play Pro K as his participation prize for #s 51-75.


Thanks [user]Kendama Europe[/user]!

Tried my hand at it even though I knew it was way out my skill level. I'm impressed that I can balance it on my weak hand, and drop and catch, but I ain't getting that drill anytime soon.

Unfortunately I am unable to continue my quest to get this trick on the grounds that I can hardly walk after a suspicious'pop' in my knee yesterday.
However, I can report that my mystery prize has arrived! (From endless combo #50 - #75)  I think it had got lost in the great GB postal service so many thanks Cliffdama & congrats on the wedding!

As no one else has posted, I guess I'm still in with a chance of nailing this trick - the knee is on the mend so further attempts will commence presently...

Blimey, well done Sonic!
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!

Nice, nice. Just to be sure, that means what others are calling Lunar, right?
