Yesterday I had a short session and got:
- 2-turn airplane
- 1-turn reverse airplane
Really satisfying tricks when they click into place :-)

Lighthouse to lighthouse is what im assuming you did? Good job! Havent been able to do that one for a while!

EDIT: You inspired me to try it! Im happy to say after numerous failed attempts, i have managed to land two (one was spiked, the other only held for >3 sec then failed spike).

Thanks for the indirect motivation!

... replaced my medium blue Ozora by a new blue Ozora. It's a little bit too dark to my liking, but the old one was just to beaten for the EKO13. I think I start practicing with a new one not too late. Otherwise it won't work properly ...

Of course, the old one remains respected and cherished - too many fond memories are attached to it

Last week I brought an old kendama to work. I was planning on trying my lunars during break time. But a co-worker found it and started to play around with it.

Today, I have three kens at work and the kendama-moments seem to grow every day. Yesterday it was one co-worker trying it, and some others joined in. Today, everybody stopped working and watched while they took it in turns trying to spike it.

My boss decided to make it a contest: the person who can spike it ten times in a row on friday, gets a free lunch. Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to compete :-)

Yeah Lh to LH . And no problem for the motivation haha. The one thing i can't seem to find out is how to double flip. 1flip i can see, 2flips are going to fast to catch. So need to find out where the catch point is :)

yeah i know what yah mean. I have a feeling for most double tricks its all in the knees and finding ways to allow the most time to do the trick vertically - if that makes sense. By doing that you get more time to do the trick slightly slower... might have more force from gravity when the ken lands on the tama though :?


Got this today! Gonna be part of my first actual edit which i have started working on :) Is this a double kenflip or 1.5? Im not sure, all i know is it had to go a lot faster to land it

... stopped the time for the "Intermediate Speed Ladder" for the first time. A whooping 05:04 minutes :(
I spent soo much time with Earth turn and Jumping stick. But I still have some time to practices

Knees and perseverance! And of course more knees!

Painted my tribute and now it looks and plays like a new '13 model! Got some nice tricks on it yesterday in the car park.
