Another variation of this is the Limping Butterfly, ie tipping the ball right back onto the other hand's palm, on the same side it started, so it's "knocked" back down and never makes the other side of the arc at all, all while the hands smoothly cross in front of each other like a regular b-fly pass. It's like the ball's hitting a wall halfway through the arc and bouncing back down. Excellent ball motion vs hand motion contrast. http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=34183#34183 Loom Mon Jan 15, 2007 12:52 pm http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=34183#34183 [ KB ] 1b Fingertip-Palm Pass http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=33712#33712 <br /> Author: <a href='http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=7263'>Loom</a><br /><br /> Posted: Tue Dec 19, 2006 1:38 pm<br /><br /> <br /><br /> I learned this pass at first while keeping my arms still...looked neat but not as fluid and smooth. Just a hint to those learning: The liquid-esque look is achieved by pulling your arms the opposite way the ball is going, like pulling the rug out from under it, rather than giving it momentum with your hands like the traditional version. This "pull" can be exaggerated to the point where your hands are up along sides the ball with your elbows as high as eye level. Looks neat, like a big ribbon shoe-shining the ball. http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=33712#33712 Loom Tue Dec 19, 2006 1:38 pm http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=33712#33712 [ KB ] 1b Finger Flurry http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=33195#33195 <br /> Author: <a href='http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=7263'>Loom</a><br /><br /> Posted: Tue Dec 05, 2006 7:11 pm<br /><br /> <br /><br /> A neat variation on this is to alternate the flurry from palms to the tops of the hands and back to palms. It creats a ruffled yet symmetrical spinning of the hands around the isoed ball. It actually looks neat bobbing up and down a little bit, like those water fountains. http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=33195#33195 Loom Tue Dec 05, 2006 7:11 pm http://www.contactjuggling.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=33195#33195
