First - [user]kendalex[/user] needs to verify [user]mreasyguy[/user]'s trick
Second - do you mean a double gunslinger around the big cup or double gunslinger > big cup
(My second interpretation won't be allowed as that would be a 3 trick combo)

[user]dimesions[/user] [user]kendamushroom[/user] [user]kendalex[/user] [user]mreasyguy[/user] and [user]jafish41[/user] are all locked out for now

To keep things moving along, BKA will step in and say

KendAlex's trick (#25): verified!
mreasyguy's trick (#26): verified!

And for clarity, we assume jafish means either
- Double Gunslinger (ball stays on the spike) ... and then... --> Big Cup 
[which would not be allowed as that is two moves]
or
- #28 Double Gunslinger (ball comes off the spike as the gunslinger is started) --> catch the gunslinger/ken while the ball is flying, and then land the ball in the Big Cup.
[Let's assume this is the case until jafish confirms]

[user]mreasyguy[/user], please verify jafish's Whirlwind Spike!

@BKA Yes your second interpretation was correct. From the Spike you do a doublegunslinger and from the gunslinger you land big cup so you do not end the double gunslinger in a spike

I've not done a lot of double gunslingers, but I gave this a go, and I managed to get it after 5 minutes. Then I realised I could come back in. Shame I wasn't videoing, d'oh! Oh well, maybe tomorrow, if it's sunny out...
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!

Well, I've done it, on film this time. But
A) It wasn't sunny.
B) It was a bit cack-handed, so it might not be accepted anyway.
C) I've already been in 3 times, so I'll hang back from posting it for now.

Some of the most wonky birds in here but i finally got it (for the second time, first one the ball went out of shot)



this turns is turning away from your body like frontspins, i asked to do a double backspins, like roll it up agains the spike so the ball is making backspins
sorry, Mreasyguy

Huh? But you said
and as next challenge i like to see a double backside earthspin over the valley, so the hole turns toward your body.
The hole does turn towards his body. If you wanted the ball to turn in the other direction, that would be in the same direction as a standard Earth Turn. So then why did you say "double backside earthspin" when you could have said "double earthspin"?

*confused face*

Im confused too.

I eathturned by pulling back so the hole came towards me not away from me hence the backwards movement of the ken rather than pushing forward.

I can slow it down for you alex if you would like to double check?

*Edit*

Slowed it down...

thats also what i understood, and what i did at home for fun and what mreasyguy did....no trouble here, moving on! haha
what is confusing is that "backspin" term...technically and earthturn is a "backflip"....so the reverse of it would be "frontflip"...so if anything this trick should be called, double FRONTspins over the valley. :)

Okay, so it seems Alex was using skating terms that were very unintuitive to kendama players. So, from now on, let's all just use the words "reverse" or (if necessary) "normal" to describe a kendama trick's direction, yeah?
So... What Alex wanted was "Double (normal) Earth Turn to Bird".

So, are you up for re-filming that, mreasyguy? (Better lighting would be nice, if you can manage that....)

Apologies to Alex for us butting in to verify someone else's trick. Our bad!
