Re: Starting over

Had a bit of time after work today to kick some. Wasn't really much time, tried to film a bit. Barrage bsos, double pickup bsos. Almost got atomic butterfly bsos. Getting a bit more consistent with atomic sets. Tried a few links that didn't come off like guay > ss whirl or op whirl. Got some half de...

Re: Starting over

I'm fairly proficient at sewing, so I've just decided to try and learn to make my own footbags. Read up a bit on the old posts on here to get a pattern that seemed good. Got a sample pack of ultrasuede from fields fabric, upholstery thread, and some tungsten shot. Here's the first attempt, its not t...

Re: An Unfortunate Turn

UGH, really sorry to hear about the injury! You seem to have a very intentional and well thought out approach to footbag, I'm sure that will help a lot with a speedy recovery. I've really appreciated the videos and write-ups you've been doing. Footbag has really helped me deal with all the crap this...

Re: Rotor?

Looks a bit like rotor without the dex? Woah, cool, never seen that. Hmm, well, they both have a dex, rotor looks swirling gyro inside stall, what I was trying to do was a butterfly dex but instead of clipper you do a gyro inside. So the dex and the inside stall are the same foot. Still havent got ...

new trick attempts

Thanks for the recommendation! No, definitely not attached to lead, prefer not having it. I'll try to reach out to him. Maybe I should just try my hand at making some too, have a decent amount of time on my hands with everything still shutdown.. I've been thinking about moves that end with a gyro in...

Re: De La Sole

:arrow: New trick. This event you have to do a trick that is new to you. Thats a pretty cool idea for a competition :). Nice video! Really liked the run starting with the flurry near the end. Its funny to me what a difference there is between uptime and downtime components, but its definitely true ...

Re: Starting over

Messed around with barrages in the last session, but was only able to hit a near barrage from clipper set. Had a session today in socks and hit: pixie op barrage BS pixie ss barrage BS fairy op barrage fairy ss barrage weak fairy is still garbage, and some of these are a little thin, but some felt r...

Re: Kankeri Japan

EDIT: Here is one video in the interim, one I think we can all relate to. :lol: I agree wholeheartedly with Taishi, this is my favorite video. Appreciate all the notes you're writing down here, definitely going to try some of these drill you've been doing. Especially the spinning/gyro ones. gyro cl...

Re: Starting over

Also, love the toe tricks -- incredibly smooth form on everything! You make it look way too easy I agree with this. All of a sudden you are hitting three dexes?! Great stuff. Thanks! Yea, that was a fun session, but I think I should keep those to a minimum or else I'll end up really frustrated when...

Re: Olav

Wow! 8O That true quasi set was unreal! I remember seeing Milan Benda hitting mid-time thigh-dexing quasi in this video at 1:04 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilPa7d0E5X4. I didn't think doing this as a truly uptime dex was possible. Definitely agree with the feeling that trying to stay away from i...

Re: Olav

I agree entirely with your critiques of modern information processing. I am really concerned about the effect that all these platforms have on people's attention spans. It is so easy now for people to break their train of thought by glancing at their phone and watching a 5 second video. Modified is ...

Re: Worlds 2020 final show

Blocked in the US too. Probably going to have to mute one of the routines and reupload (if thats possible with live streamed things?). I think someone in the chat said it was going to get a copyright strike when the music came on during Tina's routine, so maybe that was the one that did it.
