I'm working on getting my 3b palmspin CCW on the right down so I can do a 4b stack, eventually with a thumb lift. Good to have one goal eh? Anyway, when I do my spin, I can't get a smooth and constant rotation, and the balls click a lot. I think I'm fairly level, but those are my problems. If I keep practicing, will it get smoother and more one? I don't wanna muscle-learn any bad habits that I'll have to break later.
THanks

as long as the balls stay level with each other, the clicking doesnt matter a whole lot, as long as they arent moving more than a few centimeters away from each other

Millimeters. Arnar means a few Millimeters. Do still strive to keep them together though.
You're on the right track. Level is the key. To get good spins I recommend learning how to turn them 1 third rotation. Break that down and really study what your fingers are doing. Then do three perfect 1 third rotations in a row and that makes a full rotation. Repeat repeat repeat etc and now you're spinning flat and with minimal clacking.

That CM to MM mistake is easy to make eh Arnar, I've done it thousands of times.
Nugens - really work your 2 ball till it is super smooth. be aware or your posture and go as slowly as necessary to get it smooth.
