Hello!
I've been lurking on these forums for a while, just reading posts to pick up tips and tricks, and figured it's time to actually participate. :P
I've been CJing for around two years technically, but sporadic practice over the summer months has left me mostly back at the basics. I do mostly single ball work right now, and am trying to learn headrolls+bodyrolling with a Dube contact stage ball I got for my birthday. Otherwise I use acrylic.
So nice to meet you all! I can't wait to actually figure out what I'm doing.

I hope you're including butterflies as "bodyrolling" since learning them with an acrylic will cause it to become, um, slightly broken.

Welcome!

That sounds like a challenge!

Oh, I already know how to butterfly and do some basic isolations, but I know what you mean (I learned with a lacrosse ball, for the most part). Acrylics are scary when they drop!

And whenever I'm leaning anything new, I practice over the large, empty spot of carpet in my basement. :)

Oh ha, that was the part where it was early and I didn't read that you've been at this a couple years.

Don't see how it would be possible to palm iso a pokeball, too many tell marks (obviously)

Starmie or Gangar are the best pokemon every btw.
