Just to douse the unanimous state of  jubilation: today I fumbled the Falling Down (ken falling clockwise) part of Around the Pitfall (http://www.kendama.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,940.msg6853.html#msg6853), that being the penultimate stage. Urgh.

I just landed a trick but I don't know the name. I think/hope it's called  Earthspin Bird Over the Valley.

I landed bird, and than when I threw the ball to do Bird over the Valley the tama made a 360 like when you do a Earthspin.

Over The Valley tricks end on the Spike, so if you add "...and Earth Turn to Spike" to what you did, you get "Bird Turns Over The Valley".
Well done.

I landed...
Bat
Falling down
Jumping stick (I've done it before but it is much more solid)
Base cup whilwind
Down stab
Base cup - down stab
1 swirl with in under the leg catch - swing in
A jumping stick, but when the ken is at 90 degrees the tama hits the ken and it bounces in

+
I've decided what combos I'm going to do for the collab

Had a few hours to spare at work waiting on a delivery - happened to have my kendama with me so had a session in the sun and managed Big Cup Fast-hand Lighthouse, some nice Reverse Jumping Sticks, and even got Stilt (twice nice and clean). Pure joy!

Shalafi, don't know if this counts for everyone, but when practising consistency with Jumping Stick, try to hold your stance after the first caught one (keep your feet placed where they were with the catch). Now you're in. Next bend your knees, and catch the next ones a fraction of a second after your maximum 'flex' as you rise. I find I can make chains of seven to eight Jumping Sticks with this technique quite often before the string gets too knotted and ends up affecting the spin. Shame it's not transferable to consistency in other tricks!
