What tricks do you guys stay away from? For whatever reason. Me. Slingers. I can do them when holding the tama in my left hand and starting in 'Sling' grip. Can kinda do it starting in ken grip while still holding the tama. Can NEVER do it from starting position in ken grip, let alone Whirl Slings (or whatever name @Heshisfresh is comfortable with). Haven't really tried to grind it out during a practice sesh, and they are super cool to watch and I bet just as satisfying as many other tricks, but just haven't really bothered to get anywhere near it.
