Extreme Pen Spinning/Advanced Pen Spinning Tricks

The most Extreme Pen Spinning/Advanced Pen Spinning Tricks are presented below. Some of these Pen Spinning tricks can be slowed down, and can serve as visual Pen Spinning Tutorials.

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 it can be done anywhere pens are found.

Extreme Pen Spinning: Cont. Backtap


Easy Pen Spinning Trick times 7

This is an extremely hard trick to do with a real pencil. Some other videos that you see on the Internet are done with pens as long as drumsticks/chopsticks. This is done with a normal-sized pencil, which adds to the difficulty.

Extreme Pen Trick: Backtap Harmonic

BakTap Reverse and BakTap Harmonic (Combo) are both Troposphere Original inventions.

Extreme Pen Spinning - Counters

ThumbAround Normal, Thumb-Tap Reverse, Thumb-Tap Counter-Move, Fingerless Semi Reverse, Backaround 1.5, Half-Tap, Reverse Thumbaround 1.5, Side-Spin Normal, Variation of Corkscrew

The beginning of this freestyle combo features the Kaiwen Zhang's (aka Zombo) concept of the Counter-Move. In simple words, the Counter-Move is a type of trick that reverses a trick when the trick is still in progress. In this video, you could see that the Thumb-Tap is interrupted abruptly with the Counter-move initiated by the thumb.
