The laceration to pinwheel at the beginning I stole from Andre Boulay (http://www.yoyoexpert.com). I honestly can’t remember if it’s a direct pinch, or if it’s just really similar to something of his but I know that’s where it came from….because I made it a point to show this combo to Andre first because of it.
The grind is…well, a grind.
The pop to a thumb hold is mine, something I’ve been doing for years and years.
And the throw over to a suicide is so old that I have no idea where it come from…could have been me, could have been any of a dozen other people.
But the combo is mine, and it’s really irritating to hit consistently in a contest or performing environment. It’s a lot of tricks that aren’t *super hard*, but they’re the kind of tricks that sometimes just don’t want to land.
I showed this to Andre at Nationals after coming up with it the day before, and he got way more excited than anyone else. Thanks, Andre. 🙂
Today’s trick is brought to you by YoYo Factory and the DieNasty, my plastic throw of choice.
