GAH  that was really fun! I wanna play again!

We should name this whole combo something unique to the forum, and then it will trump the tunbridge wells ridiculousness for the craziest (named) combo! How does "around the web/internet" sound?

Or "around the ridiculous!"

But

The combo already has a name: "Endless Combo".

And that's presumably "Stab -> Fast Hand Lighthouse". There are possibly different ways of interpreting that, depending on how you execute the move....

It seems to me that after the stab they switch to ball grip on the hand. Is that correct?

My initial understanding of the trick is that you had to throw ken and tama, then grab tama, then lighthouse, but in the video I can't see the ball leaving their hand.

I asked Rod the same question and he said that he slightly throws it, but its such a small motion it would be hard to tell/wouldnt matter a huge deal (imo). I personally think its a little easier to give it a slight throw. It is a hard move though, getting it to stick once its on the tama is difficult

Okay how about i switch the trick to something easier? How about a horizontal earth turn in pen grip? Almost like a ufo but with the tama instead of ken. I can post video if anyone is confused, really not that hard of a trick though.

That I can do :) not sure if I'll have time tomorrow, but on Thursday I should be able to record it.

I said it too quickly, the horizontal earth turn on Pen grip is quite more difficult than with normal grip, but definitely doable.
