Someone is trying it, but personally it's motion that makes a butterfly possible. I don't think it can be isolated.

I don't isolate...not even balls themselves. Erm...wish I could do it a little better tho.

I don't think it's gonna look good but whoever is giving it a try - wanna see!

Im pretty sure you can isolate ANYTHING if your good. But, I also think you would look silly doing it

While I'm nowhere near good enough to do this, I can kinda see how... You need to keep your wrist nice and loose. It kinda helps to be hypermobile too.

I reckon it's so do able.

I'd figure it helps if you can hold a two finger balance solid from a rolling start. Also, if you can make your butterfly super slow. Then it would surely just be a case of rolling along the fingers nice and smoothly, then holding the two finger balance, then a slow descent.

As for how it looks... I reckon it would look the sickness. There's no need to be stood still in Contact anymore... the ball is only on your fingers... think what else can be achieved with the rest of your body.

On a side note, I managed to strobe a butterfly the other day.

Um...

Imagine a strobe light. Now imagine someone is doing a butterfly under that strobe light. All you can see is the move at little intervals as the strobe light quickly flashes on and off. Now, take away the strobe light, but the move still looks like there is a light strobing...

I still dont see the physics behind it. Stalling it only works for one point of the butterfly, and thats when the ball is centered over the fingertips. I admit, It would look cool, if it were possible.

I can isolate an index flip, and kind of isolate the spined butterfly (more like isolated with respect to a vector. . .Twist, that should make sense to you, lol)

But isolating the regular butterfly has always eluded me.

congrats LTC on the strobed butterfly. you ever played around with strobed palmspinning?
