The Troposphere

Pen Spinning Website


The Troposphere Pen Spinning Website (by nhk9) has Relaunched!

The Troposphere is a 1st-generation Pen Spinning website founded back in 2003 by Darren (nhk9 & formerly nhk_9), the initial moderator of the Universal Pen Spinning Board aka UPSB. The Troposphere is one of the original Internet websites on Pen Spinning.

In 2019, The Troposphere was relaunched to promote this aesthetic hand sport through videos. You will find Pen Spinning videos from the archives as well as more recent videos. You can watch pen tricks like Charge, Sonic, FingerPass, ThumbAround, BackAround and Infinity. For the latest videos, visit my YouTube page. Enjoy!

Normal Pen: Zebra 3000*F

Simple Pen Spinning Tricks can be done with any pen. I use a pen that requires no modification (i.e. "pen mods" or "pen modding"). Pen Spinning is a beautiful hand sport because you can learn Pen Spinning easily. Start Pen Spinning today!
