Talin wasn't sure of this trick's name:

Instagram link!
(<--Instavid)
I was going to say it's a Turnover (See "Spike!"), but then I realised he's doing a variation. His is:
Turn, Release (throw, if you like), Catch
as opposed to the 'standard'
Release (throw), Catch & Turn (in one move).

So... "Talin Turnover"?

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!

Really nice trick, surely you can go into loads of variants from there. Thinking it would be amazing with a cheeky JS at the top.

I suppose it's a "part curl"? Not really sure, as I can't see if you're doing a grip change or not.

Was trying to look through this thread and couldnt find it. What is the official name of the trick where you hold the tama-> airplane but instead of spiking it you land the ken on top of the hole balancing it? Someone called it a "bellyflop" but I know there's a different name for it.

And i'm going to leave this here for everyone to watch, i'm beyobd hyped that i finally did it! Can you help me name this @thevoid ?


Hey, @Cliffdama , pretty damn neat trick!
Great trick!

Personally I'd call it Aeroplane > Gear Change > 3 Turn Reverse Aeroplane.

#AeroGearChangeTripReverseAero
Wouldn't it be Reverse Gear, @Kev? :)

Well, Snapback was suggested for the immediate-pull-back-to-spike trick, but it seems that has become known as Yank[1]. That trick involved tugging on the string to reverse the direction of the ball, so I think your trick would be...

1-Turn Yank Reverse 3-Turn Aeroplane

It's debatable whether "Reverse" is needed in there, but I suppose it should be. Theoretically, you could Yank to re-spin in the same direction, right? (I'm pretty sure someone[2] has done something like that...)

Nice work.
 1. Because polysyllabics bad?!
 2. @Dimensions ?

Ha! Could be. Thing is, all the kendamas I own only have 2 gears - forwards and backwards so Gear Change = Direction change for me  ;)


On a serious note, I think trick names should:

1) Give total clarity of what the trick actually is.
2) In as few words as possible.
3) Sound good.

Ideally, yes. I don't think 1 & 2 are often mutually compatible though! :)

You mean something like
1-Turn Yank 1-Turn Yank 2-Turn Aeroplane
...?
That'd be neat!
