In honor of one of the oldest, and probably the most exciting speed ladders out there, let this post be your go-to, to discuss the many aspects of Speed Trick B, and to also post your record runs! DS Speed Trick B records : (Only JKA certified completes are allowed) 1. 42s / @azleonhart / 20170903 2. 43s / @TheWickEffect / 20170826 3. 4. 5. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ So, what is Speed Trick B, you ask? Well, it's a series of ten tricks, a speed ladder designed to test your proficiency and consistency in all the basic tricks you've learned up till now. These ten tricks (and their Japanese names) are : Candlestick (前ふりろうそく : mae furi rōusoku) Swing in to complete the trick. Around the Prefecture (県一周 : ken-isshū) (Base cup, spike) Around Japan x2 (日本一周 : nihon-isshū) After spiking the first time, continue into second time without reset or touching the ball. Around the World x2 (世界一周 : sekai-isshū) After spiking the first time, continue into second time without reset or touching the ball. Around Europe (ヨーロッパ一周 : yoroppa-isshū) It is possible to start with big cup, but the JKA prefers small cup first. Earth Turn (地球まわし : chikyū mawashi) (Swing-in spike, earth turn.) Bird, in (うぐいす～けん : uguisu ~ ken) (Begin from pull-up Bird.) It is not required to stay still after this trick. After the tama hole has contacted the edge/rim of the big cup correctly, spike it right away. Jumping Stick (はねけん : haneken) (Begin from airplane.) 1-turn Airplane (一回転飛行機 : ikkaiten hikōki) Falling in (さか落とし : sa ka otoshi) (Begin from pull-up Lighthouse.) If the Lighthouse is in proper contact with the tama, it is not required to stay still for this trick. (For Speed Trick B, all tricks require a tama/ken reset.) Here's a video example (thanks to the JKA!) : _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ What else do i need to know about Speed Trick B? Only JKA approved completes are allowed (i mean, they did make this, d'oh). Try it slowly first. Focus on completing each trick, without flaw. Then go faster. Repeat #3 and #4. Profit ??
