yes i pen spin, i picked it up like 3 years ago in summer school. It's really hard once you get into it. takes alot of finger dexterity. perfect for anyone that contact juggles already.

sorry to bring up an old thread, but i had some interest in it. For xmas i got some RSVP's and an article on how to do a simple mod. Anywho, dad saw some vids and thought wanted to see me do it so now im interested. Anywho progress vid at http://youtube.com/w/Pen-Spinning-Newb?v=ZPe6aTy9LHQ&search;=pen%20spinning%20newb some awesome vids there. I wish the UPSB was up because now i cant find out how to do any mods other than RSVP v1 or where to get thouse double ended caligraphy pens. Anywho, some awesome stuff. If anyone here spins let me know how im doin seeing as i cant do much more than thumbspins and fingerolls.

Anyone have links to tutorials? I saw a guy who could do thumb rolls back in college and I always wanted to learn how to do that.

Sorry i dont know the move names very well. Whats the finger flip?
I ruined my spinny thingy. I had a firberglass rod (got tired of pens and pencils breaking in my pocket, i move around a lot) with a pencile eraser on each end along with a grip from seme mechanicle pencils. I loved it, it looked nice, was strong, the right weight and diameter tube, and then i dropped it and it got ran over I'll have to make a new one once i can get some more grips.
