FYI - you can practice gt suicides with a red triangle.

I'm working on Enigma. It's a beast.
Well, for me anyway.

Yeah, it's cool.

There's just one spot at the end that's killing me!

Is it the last hop? For me it's the most difficult part of Enigma - so hard catch the yoyo on the correct string to finish the trick.

That one is tricky, but it's the one before that where you have to stick your thumb in the formation in a weird spot.

I FINALLY figured out what to do, now I just have to do it. Tongue

I'm finally getting the final hop of Engima consistent. What is working is keeping the string coming from the TH tucked under all the fingers (ugh, how do I explain that in words?) and this spreads the strings out and sets up the hop to land on the right string consistently.

I have several I've made up, that I just can't seem to ever get all the way though consistently, or at all. By that I mean, I can do all the elements with varying degrees of consistency, but rarely make it all the way through the entire trick.

I'm sure there are many on this forum who wouldn't even find them very difficult, but I just seem to go month after month with little improvement. It blows my mind how some people can post up trick after trick!

I just want to get these recorded and posted, and I'm trying to stay focused and positive... Maybe I need to force myself to concentrate on one at a time, until I can't get each one documented.

edit: Apparently, all i needed to do was whine about it. Suddenly, I'm getting close on a few!

There are two basic tricks that I have neglected..

Suicides and Brent Stoles

For suicides, I just don't have a good method down *insert nerd emoji* and I'm unsure of where to keep my eye focused in order to complete the catch - do I follow the loop of string all the way as it rotates around the yoyo from the release to the catch or should I keep an eye focused more on the very end of the loop or...? The way I'm practicing them is to do a double-on 1.5 mount to suicide (those are fun) then a normal suicide from trapeze followed by suicide from iron whip - if I can get this consistent this will be my little suicide combo.

For brent stoles, I used to be able to do them better. Probably overthinking it now because I'm too focused on the mechanics of the trick because maybe it needs to be more intuitive - just a timing thing that will get sorted out with practice and trial and error. It's the whole part where the loop flips around the string to form the triangle that I am not timing correctly (like uh... that's the whole trick, right? aha)

Time to put in the work and get these consistent.

Zipper (for some reason, Iím trash at hitting it reliably) and just learned Wormhole. Gonna hit Pop Ďn Fresh next.

And then my eternal challenge of landing trapeze straight and binding out of it reliably 😝

Plastic Whip. Finally 'got it' yesterday and am starting to hit it whilst feeling like it is my own skill doing it rather than pure luck like before.

It's unpossible.
