Start penspinning ?

Okay guys so other than my intention to make the firstttt ever thread in the 'Flipping Everything Else' subforum... :mrgreen:


Since I quit on bali's for now, I still miss doing cool stuff with my fingers and showing off on people. I wanna do something with my fingers that still looks cool, and is the most convenient one that my mom can't give me shit with.

After watching a couple of Asians with pens in their hands, I've gotten the inspiration. Penspinning is pretty tough, but heh I can learn it.

Anyone here that can do more than the basic ThumbAround ? Good tutorials ? Advice ?

Thanks guys

Re: Start penspinning ?

I've messed around with it an the first thing i'd say is make yourself a specifec pen that your gonna spin with it needs to be longer than normal to make it easier there a few tutorials on making the pen on yt other than that its pretty much practice practice practice dude good to see you getting your spinning fix somehow dude, hope we'll be seeing a pennspinning vid from you soon dude :TU:

Re: Start penspinning ?

I have some nice pens for spinning somewhere in the house. I dont really know to many tricks but I felt cause of the bali work that I overpowered a lot of tricks... so just be easy when you try tricks.

theres a few pretty sick penspinning forums out there. check them out.

you have the dexterity to do this thats for sure, just based on how good you are with a balisong.

Re: Start penspinning ?

Wow they have a forum on it too? That's nuts. They have a forum for everything these days.
I'd like to see some vids from you str8. Maybe a tutorial someday.

Penspinning is nice cause you can do it anywhere (unlike the bali) and it may just help you in
your balisong skills too.

Re: Start penspinning ?

Thanks for the kinda and inspiring words guys, yeah KZ it's something I can just do without having to worry about anything...and it looks flashy as well :TU:

Taking Logan's advice I made modified pen for penspinning...which doesn't feel to bad in terms of the weight :) Thanks for the heads up dude I'm sure using a good pen will enhance my learning

And now, I'm off to see some tuto's ! Heh, vid, soon enough I hope.

just googled it, and yeah it still seems to exist.

What's the best forum you guys recommend ? You know, I don't wanna end up in too many, and I don't plan on wasting time either...just like I'd rather be here on FA then on a place like bladeforums :?

Re: Start penspinning ?

yeah upsb is pretty much the main one, as well as the best one out there.

jamie enns on upsb used to be pretty damn sick with cards and was one of my favorite card manipulators before he become a penspinner only kinda guy, he's pretty damn good with pens as well.

Thanks for the recommendation guys, I joined up on there and it seems like a cool place. Of course, not cooler than here though. :happypills:

Re: Start penspinning ?

Okay, so I just got my first piece of bullshit from UPSB.

I joined last night, and tried to follow the rules and I introduced myself and stuff. In my introduction I mentioned that I was from Jamaica, and then the admin himself started to talk like a Jamaican and we were joking along in that thread. I made my posts very friendly and relevant, because I wasn't sure if I could fuck around over there as much as I do over here.

I even brought about some important questions, which were actually crucial to the board...I brought about a suggestion for change...and they even TRIED it. Their "Shoutbox" which is the equivalent of our Czat went the other way around...meaning the newer posts were at the top and the older ones at the bottom. So I asked why it was that way, and asked if it were possible to be switched around like a regular chatroom.

I posted in other off-topic threads and contributed to some questions and statements.


Now...I log in this afternoon and I get a PM. This is what the PM says...

Stevieboy7 Posting, Yesterday, 11:37 PM

Post only when absolutely needed.
Almost all of your posts currently are spam.

For reference, a regular user makes 1-2 posts a day MAX, and this is mostly because theyre asking or answering questions.

You however have made around 10 posts within the last hour. If you continue at this pace, I WILL Permanently ban you immediately.

This is your first and only warning.

Thanks
-Stevieboy7

What the fuck ? Seems like I'm gonna have to go there just for the sake of checking out the tutorial threads rather than posting. Since I'm restricted to one or two posts a day. :roll:

This is why...FA4LMF!!!

Re: Start penspinning ?

What? Spam is advertising and non-relevant posts. If it's relative to the forum/topic
a person could post 50 times/day and as long as he's not redundant I don't see the
problem. Do they have an issue with space on their server or something? A post can't
take up that much anyways. That's quite retarded.
