A few clean flashes. But what I consider better for catches re-juggled, were upto around 15 throws into collapse, and a good 13 throws into like 7 (or even 8? not sure) gathers.

Terix on 7b_wizard's log 2018-06-19
What is your record with 9b?)

Guili on Guili's log 2018-06-18
:-D

Terix on Guili's log 2018-06-18
If you could do it, it means that was just not your good day for juggling) Good luck with 7b!)

Guili on Guili's log 2018-06-18
thanks mate! I know I might be asking too much of myself... it's just that I hate when I can do something one day, and the next seems impossible... haha...

Terix on Guili's log 2018-06-18
I think even 9 catches is nice - my record with 7 is 6 catches :D But not every day is good for training, tomorrow it will be better^^

7b_wizard on Terix's log 2018-06-11
All good, then ;o) okay, thanks!

Terix on Terix's log 2018-06-11
because people were kind and I would say „crave“ to try to juggle, so they liked workshop and me too, because they were very skilful)

Terix on Terix's log 2018-06-11
weather was a little windy, so as always there were few falls, but I think that a lot of people have this problem. If I will train more it will be better) But in general it was marvellous

Terix on Terix's log 2018-06-11
Thank you that you have asked, it was great (as people and organizer said), also I have enjoyed it, but I wasn´t satisfied with my show (I was never satisfied because I know there are people who can juggle more tricks with more props etc);

7b_wizard on Terix's log 2018-06-11
So, what was it like now, the show, .. wind, right arm, tricks, an' all?

Guili on 7b_wizard's log 2018-06-06
What are log-friends for? ;) keep up the good work!

Guili on 7b_wizard's log 2018-06-03
with the amount of practice you put in, you'll surely get it man! Just wait for it :D

7b_wizard on 7b_wizard's log 2018-06-03
But you're right, I'm expecting the 13 catches that I want anytime in a good phase now [ #prediction lol ]

7b_wizard on 7b_wizard's log 2018-06-03
haha thanks! .. but when doing bad under not so good conditions, it's not worth neglecting 7b for it. And also it's been like that (8 g) for a longer while now already ..

Guili on 7b_wizard's log 2018-06-03
no 9b today? come on man! you allmost have it! 8 gathers it's no joke!°

Guili on Guili's log 2018-06-01
:-D

7b_wizard on Guili's log 2018-06-01

When passing with someone who can't do a cascade yet I usually start with 5-ball 1-count, so they don't have to catch their own throws. ;)

Maria on 7b_wizard's log 2018-05-07
I usually start with passing the first ball (doing a up-down-pass move with the right hand to sync with the other juggler) and then do a rhythm of 4-count, 6-count or 2-count, if the other juggler can do a cascade. 3-count once the 4-count works (to get passes from both hands).

Maria on Maria's log 2018-04-26
Yeah, but I mean, 534534, I can usually get that at least half of the times... But then suddenly there is a few days when I try 10-20 times without getting it.

Guili on Maria's log 2018-04-26
just keep on trying! :)

Guili on Maria's log 2018-04-26
"Why can't tricks just keep being easy once I think I have learned them? ;)" hahha! totally! I allways say: it's harder to do a trick for the 2nd time than for the first!

Guili on Guili's log 2018-04-22
but my run still counts! :)

Guili on Guili's log 2018-04-22
haha! totally right! ohh... I thought i was free of that... haha... but you're right, of course i should train that... thannks!

Orinoco on Guili's log 2018-04-22
Hi Gulli, are you training for the IJA numbers competition? If not, don't neglect training the collection. A short run with a clean finish looks much better than a longer run ending in failure.

7b_wizard on Guili's log 2018-04-18
Ah, I see, .. "where you stop", "what you're going for" pure flash or qualify. Okay, makes perfect sense.

Guili on Guili's log 2018-04-18
correcting. in the qualifying run its one rethrow per ball, but i meant that in both cases, after throwing them, you catch them all and stop throwing.

Guili on Guili's log 2018-04-18
precisely! (though it may be wrong... ) I thought to make a flash, or a qualifying run, you should throw the amount of balls, and gather them all, without rethrows, right? so, in a run of 9 catches, the 7 is included, but you are not stoping there to gather. is it right, or wrong?

7b_wizard on Guili's log 2018-04-18
Otherwise said: where is your difference between "flash" and "cascade"? Is it collecting after 7 throws versus rethrowing \going on after 7 throws?

7b_wizard on Guili's log 2018-04-18
( I mean, you're not doing high up "flashes" like in 999999900 pattern, are you? )

7b_wizard on Guili's log 2018-04-18
Hi again, .. I don't understand what you mean by "flash, 6 gathers" (collect after 7 throws?), but "cascade, 9 catches" (throw more than 7 times?) .. I mean, doesn't "9 catches" incude a "flash" (= 7 catches) somehow?

7b_wizard on 7b_wizard's log 2018-04-15
But, hey, after failing and blundering on 9b a few minutes, 7b feels like only 5b. ( /\_(9>7) = "7=5" lol )

7b_wizard on 7b_wizard's log 2018-04-15
Also throwing the first of four balls in hand from weakhand is new and needs some calibrating before it comes fluent.

7b_wizard on 7b_wizard's log 2018-04-15
The first big challenge with five balls in one hand at start is to ``push´´ that first ball up well-aimed on an apt height with little contact from only one finger (index or ringfinger).

7b_wizard on 7b_wizard's log 2018-04-15
and thanks!

7b_wizard on 7b_wizard's log 2018-04-15
.. but it's doing those rethrown balls from a nice well-shaped, well-aligned and well-timed pattern launched that jus' feels great like indeed "juggling nine". ( no matter what exactly drops when exactly, .. I want more anyway ;-] )

7b_wizard on 7b_wizard's log 2018-04-15
yeh .. 15 throws is between at least only 6 catches, when already the 7.th launched ball drops, and 14 catches when the very last ball drops, which to keep track of I don't have any free attention left over for.

Guili on 7b_wizard's log 2018-04-15
well done anyway! now I have my new 53mm balls, and i bought 9, I'm going to have to try it :)

Guili on 7b_wizard's log 2018-04-15
15! that a lot! wait... cause you count throws.. i count catches like the TJE record keeper does... haha so,15 th it's like throwing the 9, and catching 6 of them?

7b_wizard on 7b_wizard's log 2018-04-15
yeah .. got it once with smaller balls a few years ago, and now once with normal size MMX1 last fall. But I've gotten upto at leat 15 throws to crash, which feels much more like "doing nine".

Guili on 7b_wizard's log 2018-04-15
you are so close to the 9b flash! did you ever get it?

Guili on Terix's log 2018-04-09
hit here! i can only say: keep on trying! the other day i've flashed the 7b for the first time. it took a lot of work, and a few months of mental obsession, but i did it! :)

Guili on Guili's log 2018-04-09
stephen, i'm aming to qualify in these next sessions, i'm not leaving it alone untill i do! why do you ask?

Guili on Guili's log 2018-04-09
special thannks to 7b_wizard for the advice and support! when the flash came i had decided to lower my throws a little more. now it's allmost like a high 5b.. :)

Guili on Guili's log 2018-04-09
thanks my friends! you know, better than anyone, how hard it can be... many people will never understand why we spend so much time throwing balls into the air.. jaja

7b_wizard on Guili's log 2018-04-09
yeah! f%§$k it di'n hit the ground - it COUNTS man !! :oD

7b_wizard on Guili's log 2018-04-09
hehe :o) yah, great! .. muitos felicidacaoes!

Stephen Meschke on Guili's log 2018-04-09
Congratulations. Do you have a goal for qualifying the 7 ball cascade? Like, do you think you can get 14 catches by May or June?
