Does Flipping Make Zippo Tricks Easier?

Was checking out some zippo vids and I'm starting to
get interested in them. Just wondering if flipping
experience makes them easier to learn or if it's like
night and day and you pretty much start from scratch.

Re: Does Flipping Make Zippo Tricks Easier?

any type of manipulation can help....not just in the actual mechanics of the moves..but in understanding performance and presentation and routine building with linkage and flow.

I've relied alot on my experience with card manipulation to make the transition to balisong manipulation.

while i used to do quite a few zippo tricks years back and have that dvd "50 ways to rock a lighter" i have been thinking about picking it back up again. was looking to order a new on tonight. I still have my old zippo, but i stopped cause the hinge broke while i was filming a zippo routine a couple years back...so in the middle of my routine you see me completely change up everything cause the lid was about to fall off at any minute.

Yeah I'm with Logan and Vincent on this one, the flipping improves your finger dexterity which is needed for zippo manipulation...

[Speaking of which, I neeeeed something to do with my fingers...and penspinning is too damn hard.]
