Double Fisted Mantis Suicide (Invert) – Steve Brown
Double Fisted Mantis Suicide (Invert)
For a few months, way back when, I got really excited about the trick possibilities of suicides. And, as most yo-yo players do, I immediately set about figuring out the hardest possible ways to throw a loop and catch it.
A Double Fisted Mantis Suicide is the mount for Legend of the 7-Fisted Mantis, one of the hardest tricks I’ve created. The invert version of this is a massive pain in the butt because it requires you to throw the loop, push the string with the finger that threw the loop, and then move your right hand around the back of the loop while in motion, coming around to stab it from behind. The regular version is actually easier because the movement your catching hand makes is actually more natural.
