Today I landed 7 jumping sticks in a row. I usually fail after 2 or 3, so very happy

And I just did Speed Trick B in 1:42, my personal best and at the first try :)

Best part is: I felt that I could do better.

...landed Half-Swirl Aeroplane with relative consistency...
...but I can't seem to do with without a kind of upside-down tama-grip sideways Scoop Spike (Stunt Plane type as the American guys are calling it). I think it looks pretty cool and it feels great, but is this still considered a Half-Swirl Aero?  I mean, in a tournament situation? Or does the string have to be between the finger and thumb, so to speak? :o

If you're asking us, Half-Swirl Aeroplane and Half-Swirl Scoop Spike are different tricks. Grip may be varied, but angle-of-spike-at-catch may not go over the horizontal.

Ah, thanks, [user]BKA[/user], so I think it's ok, as the catch is either perfectly horizontal or higher, the ken exits sort of like in Spacewalk > UFO. Maybe if I get time I could upload a decent bit of footage, but that'll do for me right now

Today I landed 'around the moon' :D Don't know if that's a trick name, but small lunar -> 1/2 barrel roll (to big lunar) -> lighthouse -> in. 10/10 would do again.

Today I landed two 'similar' tricks -

Aeroplane -> Base Cup
Spike -> Base Cup

I also did my first attempt at Moshi Kame, strung and slow just to get a feel for it.  I started slow for now and only got about 10 before I dropped, but I'll keep practicing it and see how faster and longer I can get

I think it was called something like "Inverse Around the World" super cool trick. There is a thread about "Inverting" tricks.
