Your a smurf because you are a smurf. Nothing you said has anything to do with it.

The reason I called you a smurf, is because you made a comment only a new member, who didn't do their research would make. Thanks for responding like a upset child, it just proves my point. :lol:

You're allowed to think it, I doubt anyone would disagree... but just keep it to yourself. That dude should get a little bit more respect for what he's done for Balisong. He's O.G... ya dig?

Well put. Exactly the point I was trying to make to begin with.

Re: Master of Balisong Clay- video compilation

i think the big thing some of the guys are missing is what time period hes from and jsut how old these vids aer also. lol i think like the 70's??? so ya and also Clay was a unique guy and a fucking genius with a balisong we should all praise him and just ignore the disturbing shorts lol and if he was still aeround he probably would still wear em and say "fuck u" to anyone who had a comment to maek about his clothes haha. my stand is if u can flip that good u can wear whatever u want......just make sure u wear somehting!!! haha :TU:

Re: Master of Balisong Clay- video compilation

Wow, I haven't seen Clay's work in a while. Perfect example of clean and excellent execution.
That guys flips to the 'T'. Not one sloppy catch, transfer, richochet. Everything is done with
precision. You can tell everything is very deliberate and not just spontaneous. People should
go back and review his work. Newbs have A LOT to learn from him. It's so funny how people
will make fun of him and then put on youtube videos of themselves flipping sloppy as all hell
with absolutely no form or thought into their routine. Or worse yet, they have NO VIDEOS.

Word of advice for all NEWBS/SMURFS/PREPUBESCENT flippers: Keep your mouth shut until
you have something worthwhile to contribute to the table.

Re: Master of Balisong Clay- video compilation

Thanks for this. Vids like this and Blasto's make me realize just how far flipping has come in general. Watching some of those older vids, they seem rather "plain" compared to say Fke's crazy-fast fingers. That said, he also slightly reminds me of V. Dark because he also did a lot of manipulations with the knives locked and you don't see much of that ever.

As for the shorts: at least they weren't beach shorts or some shit.

Well the thing is his old school moves will still beat a lot of new school flippers. Good example is when Fke went up against Greg.
Greg doesn't do much that is really "new school". All his moves are old school moves for the most part. Fke on the other hand is
the definition of a new school flipper. He has very high technical ability and probably one of the flippers leading the way. However,
who won that challenge? Greg. Why? Execution. It was perfect, it was deliberate, it was performed to the utmost ability.

My guess is Clay's routines would still win outright over a lot of newer flippers these days who are doing newer/more advanced
tricks simply because I think what lacks these days is a focus on execution. It's kind of a: Well I landed it so that's that attitude.

I agree, and have taken to watching GreG closely after hearing this mentioned a few times, and I'm picking up on it. Gives me hope that I can be a worthy participant sooner than I originally believed.

Re: Master of Balisong Clay- video compilation

Wow, this guy is great. i would comment on the shorts, but I'm too amazed by the flipping. So fluent and connected, its great stuff. Anyone know what bali's he was flipping? i know this was an old video, and i dont know if the 4x series was available back then, so maybe it was a PCC or something. I'm just a smurf, i don't know =D

Lol I don't know for sure. But I would say a balisong similar to a Jaguar, maybe a pcc, its hard to tell bc he flips so fast

I like the link to the step by step tutorials of dozens of moves broken down by category. It's too bad my connection is so slow.
