    I made a border balance set up today, and started grinding. Got it for about 2 seconds a few times, but wasn't able to finish it.

    Around Stall Nod off Stall. Base Cup to Handlestall gets me every time. -_-

    P.S. Around stall nod off stall goes like this:
    -Small Cup, Nightingale
    -Nod off, nod on back to nightingale
    -Big Cup, bird
    -Nod off, nod on back to bird
    -Base Cup, Handlestall
    -Nod off, nod on back to handlestall
    -In.

    I went for some late slings today, specifically 1-turn swap late sling and juggle late sling. These things are HARD! I always miss the spot for the juggle and fling the ken up in the air for the trade.

    Have you tried around nod on stall? It’s what you described but minus the initial stall. I feel it is slightly easier but presents a different hole-control challenge. You should try it!

    Yeah late slings are tough but keep practicing them! I was trying to get a late sling between airplane juggle airplane. Hopefully I can hit that one today.

    Working on some KWC tricks. Can land all of 1-4, and some of 5, 6. Working on swirl swap spike, ghost lighthouse insta, underbird nod off, swivel down hand-> swivel spike, and candle kenflip downspike of level 5, axe barrel roll, hanging inward 2-turn lighty-> dub inward in, base cup-> ghost lunar-> basecup-> ghost inward lunar, and dub slinger kenflip-> dub sling kenflip of the others. Level 10 is insane, especially herold's trick.

    Ben Herald’s is the only one that’s possible for me at the moment. Oh and also Lyndon’s isn’t too bad. The rest are insane.

    You forward sling under the big cup with your middle finger then regular sling under the small cup with your index finger. Your index finger should land perfectly under the small cup after the forward sling because it all happens fast.

    Missed the falling in on two inward lunar backflips. I also chased inward lunar cushion but came up way short. Inward lunars are possibly my biggest weakness

    I had my longest and most frustrating grind ever jamming tap-> juggle spike. It was a solid 45 minutes and I didn't get it once.

    1-turn insta lighty-> juggle lighthouse. For some reason, I have a ton of trouble juggling to lighthouse from lighthouse. Got really close a good 5-6 times though, so hopefully I'll get it soon.

    Lol yesterday I tried to land 10 Lightning Drop swap Downspikes in a row for the KROM #kensistent IG contest. I almost got a chip on my basecup for my trouble.
