    What are some tricks that you've either 1)never landed or 2)only landed a few times that you feel like should be well within your skill level to hit consistently?

    The two huge ones for me are lunar tres and juggle to airplane

    I can’t hit a lunar backflip to save my life; I can do inward lunar backflip occasionally but have yet to do a normal

    I feel that. I still haven't hit inw backflip but for some reason it makes more sense to my brain than the reg backflip

    spacewalk, idk how i can never spike it! the catch is there and the spike just misses or the ken flips around everywhere & juggle to spike/multiple juggles/jug to anywhere but big cup... i can’t seem to get the hole around to spike the jug lol but i got lucky once & multiple juggles i guess my hand gets too eager and i flip the ken too early and the string tightens, or i can’t consistently catch the bottom of the ken. don’t even get me started on a double j stick ...

    For some reason, tama grip swing to trade spike is impossible to me. I can do lots of other trades that would be considered much harder. Jumping stick trade spike is super easy, even though it's almost the exact same trick. I don't understand what the hangup is. Even juggle to spike is no problem in comparison.

    1.5 Swap Spike.
    Have gotten it maybe 3 times, and the tama swap is the same movement as a trade spike which I have down pat but for whatever reason I can't do it when trying this trick.
    Also Juggle to Spike. Single or Double whether it's pull up or from spike or cups. It's a trick that I am confident I can get 1 out of 10 tries as opposed to 1.5 Swap Spike which would be more like 1 out of 30, it's just the tama control/tracking that I'm still working on.
    There are more but these I've been working off/on for the last few weeks after slowly starting to play more after stepping away from it for a while.

    Juggle to spike.. lightning drops.. and def Whirlwinds! I catch a whirley once in a blue moon it seems maybe 1/50 or so. The trick should be so easy for me, earth turn with a Ken flip.. But it’s not ‍
