There's plenty of time during school to pen spin, and it's not like you have to focus solely on penspinning to be proficient. Constant repetitions will help you get combos and tricks down, and that can still be accomplished while focusing more on other things like bookwork or to a video and such. And 4;eel24, not to be rude, but I doubt you can do just about every trick for just one year's worth of practice.


lol yeah it's such a waste of time during school. I'd rather have spent my time paying attention in class though when I was learning new tricks.
you can probably learn tricks easily after learning the basics

fyi, UPSB v3 moved to another forum, v4 (forum.upsb.info).
If you're looking for tuts for pen mods or tricks, look there  :-P

Just got back into spinning after like a 5 month break. Just learned twisted sonic to thumbaround release, took me forever to get it down.

i spent some time back in middle school (5+ years ago?) learning some of these tricks. upsb was v2 then.
i think i can do a TA, TA 1.5, sonic harmonic and shadow 21-32.

eh not really, not too much momentum
imo rsvp mx's/cx's are pretty good if you can't get a KT or waterfall

edit- lol my post up there sounds like I'm trolling =/
I meant "it wastes a lot of class time when you don't want to pay attention."

nothing in particular- if you can buy an rsvp and "back cap it," that'd work. A g2 is ok also, just not great.
rsvp mx's are always "the first pen," but imo the lemon and waterfall are much better. (although, I don't think a beginner can find all those pen parts =/)
if you're interested in making different mods, look at pen wish to find parts.

tricks, again nothing in particular, BUT you have to know some tricks in order to do others-
charge
sonic
thumbaround
fingerpass
infinity
(and their conjugates, i.e. their reverses and on other fingers)

penwish or jetpens
penwish has premade mods already

hint if you want to make a mod right now by going to staples or something
back cap a pentel rsvp (you might need an extra grip)
an rsvp mx- you need a Pentel hgg and Pentel rsvp/sunburst. Problem- you can't really find hgg's in USA stores anymore...
an rsvp CX- you need two rsvp caps, two grips, and one rsvp body. Problem- you need a saw and/or drill
remember, you can always substitute parts.

if you really want a good mod- try and make a KT, Waterfall, or Lemon- see upsb(wiki) for details

Hey guys, I wanna try this too, what is a good pen for beginners? And do you guys know a store in europe that sells premodded (penspinning)pens?
If there is no good store in europe I have to order it from the us, so I can probably only order 1 maybe 2 pens so I need them to be good at any skilllevel
 All yoyos have one thing in common... None come with 'tricks included' lolol..

uh you can buy comssa's online. imo I prefer lemon over a metal comssa

and europe- you guys can make a couple mods actually (from the pens in your stores). There isn't a store that sells premodded pens. Only PDS and Penwish do that. I think there is a French pen-parts store online (or something of that nature). They could have premodded pens, but idk. I haven't used it.
