Wrist Double Slack

This is a fun little move I came up with while playing around with getting in and out of wrist mount. This is similar to a move I've been doing for a while but without any slack. It's good fun and looks really slick. Not to mention it's quite useful when trying to move from wrist mount to man and brother.

The only thing to watch out for is to let go of that first pinch early enough for the slack to disappear. It only looks like its doing a revolution. Pretty simple stuff.

Appearing GT

Happy New Year! I'll just stop counting weeks now since I've clearly not managed to post one per week. There's a big backlog of tricks though, so I think I've managed 1 every 2 weeks. Which isn't that bad considering!

This trick is one I made up while messing around. I got tired of seeing tons of tricks where the GT was just the end of the trick and not an integral part of it so I decided that I'd make up a trick where the GT was right in the middle. I've mostly succeeded, although I still end in a GT (sort of).

The hard part to this trick is flipping all those string layers back onto another string without causing a bind. You'll probably need a very wide gap when first learning this. Enjoy!
