Ah, I was wondering if you'd let Matt get away with having the spike on the opposite side of the fingers to the picture, but didn't want to say anything to jinx it. But you approved it, so cool, onwards!

Yes indeed. I didn't specify which cup or which side.

Raises an interesting point though. I guess for precision we'd specify the cup and side in future e.g. Big/Small Cup Inner/Outer Pistolero - all just variants, all pretty tricky!

Well done again Matt.  :)

Ah yes good spot void! I suppose it would be difficult to shoot a pistol with my fingers on the other side of the trigger..but thanks to kev's leniency/lack of gun knowledge  the show goes on!

And yes for style points,  trigger fingers straight in the future!

Next trick for #107:

Pistolero > lighthouse.

So ken does a 180 degree turn to land in the position and hold for your usual three seconds

It seems easy enough,  but after a few tries, keeping the ken tame for the lighthouse catch wihout making the string taught (so it jaunts away) can be a little tricky...

Best of luck to all!

Next trick is:
107. [Pistolero with Dropped Tama] > Fast Hand Lighthouse
- Start on a Pistolero with the tama hanging
- Throw everything upwards (so the ken rotates 180°)
- Grab the tama
- Catch the ken on a lighthouse position
- Balance still for 3 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.
[user]Sonicpearse[/user], [user]Dimensions[/user] [user]Kendama+cliniK[/user], [user]Kev[/user] & [user]kendamatty[/user]must sit out of this round.

Tricky little beast. Just spent 10 minutes on it. "String-pings" got me several times....

Ha I love the "string ping" phrase.
A tip for all you budding pistolero folk; for me the longer I leave it till catching the tama the better,  to give maximum time for the ken to rotate freely. .

Obviously 10 minutes was clearly not enough, and it needed another 3.

A touch out of frame at the top... Any good [user]kendamatty[/user]?

Looking good void, nicely executed! As it didn't go out of frame at a crucial moment in the trick (catch or release), then we shall proceed!

What's next?

Here's the video - after I did today in our meeting without camera, I tried to repeat that at home - after only about 20 trials it worked. Hope it counts (even with the stupid face and the not so many seconds I held the lighthouse):

Move away left arm and throw ken 270° counterclockwise, then catch ken (spike points down) with the left hand (like aeroplane)

So, you swap the ball into the other hand, underneath the flying ken?
