Great pics, LB and Zren.  Points, as usual.

I don't care what color the blade is, your spinning is always fantastic.  I don't know how you make it look so effortless to spin with both hands.

You and me both.  I've been wanting a Flamberge SE in CG for some time.
Thanks sfd, and I agree that spinning looks incredible and he makes it look so easy that I have to remind myself that, to his credit, there has probably been a lot of practice. I don't have many dueling opportunities where I live, so I really need to get into spinning.

Yeah, orbits/spinning is one of those things you can work on all by yourself in privacy.  In fact, when you're trying figure something out, it's probably best to do it in seclusion, so that nobody can ridicule you for messing up. Tongue I need to work on more of that myself.  Aside from looking cool, it also helps build spatial awareness and coordination with the saber.

I've been at it about a year and some months.  You just have to put the effort in.  That and ask questions.  I literally learned from forum members.

Great advice.  Cool  I have a question: do you prefer midgrade or heavy grade blades for spinning?

One thing I find helpful are tutorial videos.  Darth Cephalus and others have videos on YouTube showing how to correctly stand and move the saber about in your hands.  Even Darth Nonymous from TPLA touched on that in a video, even though they focus more on the combat side of things.  I did find out after watching his video that I was doing some stuff wrong with my hands when I was doing even basic spins, which took some time and repetition to correct.  (build new muscle memory, and all that)  But, I'm going slowly and trying to get each bit down pat before even attempting to connect stuff together, much less do stuff as complex as many of you do.

I was doing some practice of some basic stuff earlier, crossing over my body in the front.  Aside from whacking myself in the left knee once, it went pretty well.  Cheesy

Blade type depends on the hilt in my opinion.  My guardian and flamberge use heavy blades and I use mid in everything else.

Making tutorials is harder than it looks.  I've wanted to but every time I'm like nah...this isn't going to help anyone.  I may do a video showing some coordination excercises though.

Great.  Thanks for that bit of information.  I've tried spinning some of my Aeon and Sentinel hilts with a 36-inch heavy grade, which I find somewhat blade heavy, but I find a 32-inch HG to be better.  However, I have a 36 midgrade that I'll have to try in those hilts.  Of course, my Electrum Wind is a different story. Wink

Yes, indeed it is.  I'm an amateur 3D artist and I've been asked to explain how I've done things in the past.  Making a tutorial for just that was a long and involved process, to say nothing of having something that requires someone filming me.  My hat's off to anyone who makes these videos, and I greatly appreciate them for doing it.

Thanks guys and everyone else to had seen it at the time I posted that video of me. I'll be posting some more later on! I might do some outside when it gets warmer since it's still cold this time around here. I can definitely go wild and more all out if i'm outside whereas since I'm in a room I'm restricted to only doing certain moves and spins and can't really toss up saber in the air otherwise i'll be breaking things haha.

Anyways I shall post it here again for those who missed it. Enjoy! Smiley
