If you want to have some stringing but still be 99% freehand, just learn butterflies. 99% of the time people will say "OMFG WOWZ DAT R TEH AWEZUM" but if you want more depth in stringing, actually put effort into it and look for some other moves.

 

I, myself, do stringing. As soon as I got the hang of stringing and got the feel for how the weight worked when it's spinning, I moved straight to handles.

_____

 

The main thing with stringing is people think they're going to hit themselves so they end up hitting themselves. There's a key solution to that - think you'll be awesome.

 

End rambling...

okay

some basics for stringing that are kind of a must are in wes's tutorial

umm... it includes weaves, alternate arm wraps (which i reckon are pretty awesome because they're good to work with), windmill and butterfly

 

for freehand

you should learn some threads, more body traces, tosses and yeah... be creative =]

tosses look really good if you can pull them off good and smoothly =]

 

if you dont know what some are just ask

I can't find my strings (which is a shame because they're perfect length) but all I know is they're approaching (if not at) twice the length advised for handles... lawl. pretty fuckin' normal.

 

Doesn't that show how often I string if I don't even know the length of my handles-ropes xD

 

BTW what do you people use? I use nylon tent ropes with melted-to-fuse-fluffy-ends-together to prevent them from fluffing up so I can put other glowsticks on.

But if you guys wanna meet up at an event or just a chat or something feel free, daniel.veljkovic@hotmail.com
