It is essentially the same move as the propellor. Place the balls on the palm of your right hand, two on bottom, one on top, your left hand should be holding the formation from the top. Now start spinning the balls like in a regular propellor, except now rotate your hands so that the left one is on bottom, right one on top. This also makes a rather interesting 4-ball transfer from one hand to the other. it's a three ball iso. but it also works exellently with a 4-ball stack.

anyone trying higher-ball count ratchets? 2 and 3 are cool, but could you ratchet a pyramid?

The pyramid ratchet is actually much easier than this, and looks almost identical. The 4th ball goes just behind the centre of the 3 ball triangle, and helps by giving support and acting as an axle for the other 3 to pivot around.

Yup. Thats pretty much about it, or You can ratchet it from the bottom as a palmspinning deal. works best as a curl.
