@the milky oolong I sent you a clarification PM but never got a response - could you please clarify this so I can (not) edit this official post if needed

Next trick is:
123. [from Backhand Clifftop] > Big Cup Triangle
- Start from a ken grip Clifftop (outer ring)
- Throw everything and grab the string
- Catch the Tama in the big cup then let the string hang (pinched string or looped finger)

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.
Dimensions, The Void, shalafi, KenSan & the milky oolong must sit out of this round.
Good luck everyone!

Huh? Thought I responded to this PM. You're absolutely right, no ' bounce' so-to-speak allowed, a clean drop into hanging big cup start (triangle like you say), no problem with it being a bit wobbly on impact but tama should be clean in the big cup and the string straight over finger/pinch.

I had a very quick go the other night. Didn't get very far. Seems odd! Very "soft" drop required?
But then I'm not allowed in anyway...
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!

If anyone is still trying this, work out the point on your string that allows the tama to sit comfortably in the big cup while hanging. Focus on this bit and  set up a Clifftop, with the string facing in. Bend your knees, give a little push, grab this bit and follow both bits down.
