@Dimensions Right royally done, accepted!

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!

@The Void just for some name clarifications: I called 138 "Static Leg Chop" as the end position is as if you have just 'chopped' with your leg and thye static part as its the ball which moves and not your leg - unlike a standard chop.
139: A nanchuku aeroplane is just the last move of the sequence so I called it "Nanchuku exchanges [plural, obviously] to nanchuku aeroplane".

There is a prize of a Royal Kendama for one random participant between tricks 126-150.
Currently in the draw: The Void, KenSan, Peat, mreasyguy, BenPycroft24, shalafi, nemo, SamB, s070s, Dimensions

Next trick is:
140. [from Aeroplane] > Tap Back Jumping Stick
- Throw The ken 90°
- Tap the end of the ken so it rotates in the opposite direction (450°)
- Catch the ken back in aeroplane

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.

SamB, s070s, shalafi, The Void & Dimensons must sit out of this round.
Good luck everyone!

@Dimensions Re 138, fine, sensible.
Re 139, I was going to set "Nanchuku Aeroplane" and went to find Cima's video as the demo. I was surprised that I hadn't remembered the exchanges were part of the trick, so I set "the trick in the video", i.e. Nanchuku Aeroplane. But after reading your comment, I went back to look at Cima's entry in Click, and that doesn't include the exchanges! So he's contradicted himself! Ha ha. So, errr, okay, fine! :)

Ha ha. Cheers @Dimensions I got a bit carried away with that stare. I was brewing a cup of tea and hadn't expected to land the trick again that quick once I started filming.

Anyway, keeping with the tap theme, how about for the next trick a Double jumping stick! But instead of the regular way, throw the ken straight up out of the tama and tap the spike to get the double rotation!

Great! By the way, your face on landing the penultimate trick was absolutely priceless!

Ok, next trick, if I may be so bold:

loaded Tama grip > Jumping Stick [interrupt Captain Hook] Reverse Build the Lighthouse:

Throw the ken as per Jumping Stick.
When the Big Cup comes around, interrupt the spin with your index finger, rotating the opposite way to the ken's Jumping Stick rotation.
Release and catch in Lighthouse, as per Reverse Build the Lightouse/ Reverse 1-Turn  Lighthouse.
Hold for 3 seconds.
No rest between interrupt and direction reverse should be necessary, the whole motion can be done fluidly with a bit of practise.

Well done - I had to slow down Youtube to 25% to see what you're doing.

About your trick, one question: in loaded tama grip - which cup does point towards you? Does it matter? (well of course it does, but what would you accept?)
One more: And how do you interrupt? Push the ken? Or the cup?

Interrupt with a Captain Hook. I know you know what that is, so I don't understand what you don't understand...?
If anyone else reading this doesn't know what a Captain Hook is, search the forum or read my books. :-)
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!

One more: And how do you interrupt? Push the ken? Or the cup?

In loaded Tama grip, the small cup should be facing you, as if you have just landed a properly-executed Airplane.

You 'interrupt' the motion of the Jumping Stick roughly half-way, by catching the ken in Captain Hook and changing the direction of the spin to sort of 'Reverse Build the Lighthouse'. There is no easier way I can say this, and I don't really feel it requires a demo, but will upload one if @Dimensions  or BKA says I should.

So, again, launch ken from Tama, small cup facing you.
When the big cup comes around, use your index finger to hook under the big cup (known as Captain Hook, popularized by Donald Grant).
Rotate finger in opposite direction to the direction of the ken.
Release ken and catch in Lighthouse (the ken will have travelled as per any Reverse Lighthouse trick.

Hope this helps!
