I don't think this should be called "reverse" butterfly, as the butterfly itself is reversable, and it's reverse doesn't look like this. Not sure where the delay is either, but I like it anyway. Personally, I think I'd call it a Spined Butterfly, but my names for moves tend to be like that...

I would have to agree with Kae on this one. It is a combination of a ‘Flip-flop with a lot of butterfly arm movement. This is the sort of thing I do walking down the street close to people and open sewers. (that will swallow a ball in a moment, ask Maxime) it is a fairly easy move for the advanced Cjer but it is good that it was posted. KS obviously practiced his peanut butter and jelly sandwich with a cradle held ball. I like the fact that the left arm is behind the back. Shows confidence in the movement! Remember people, you can break the plane of a ‘Butterfly’ anytime you want, and KS gives a Good example here. KS straighten out those fingers in palm! Or ljane is gon'a ride your ass *G* Sorry Jane, couldn't resist that one.

I was reading James Ernest's description of a butterfly on the wall plane as being "palm-down inside, palm up in the outside movement" so I just reversed it to be palm-down outside, palm up inside, and being as unimaginative as I am, I called it "reverse" butterfly, but rename it to whatever you think is good. Don't ask me where the delay came from, I think I had two GIFs like this in the zip file one without the delay, and I have no clue as to what in the heck I was thinking. The tandem movements are based on this. And more are coming.

This can also be done with two balls going in and out at the same time. I may post a GIF of it, if you all (and Kae) think it's worth it

I am a new cjer and i was playing around with this move today. I thought it looked interesting when you did it as a "Plane-breaking" move. Check it out. I will register soon, i promise.

This also gives a reason to learn to palm-palm pass from fingertip to fingertip, so you can continue across to the other hand.
