Balance, Flip, Re-balance
Starting with one club balanced on another, give the balanced club a little flip so that it turns over in the air, either through 180° or 360°, and catch it again in a balance:
First practice this trick using only one club, balancing in the palm of your hand. There are many variations of spin, direction and angle with this trick, some people give the club a normal spin, some give it a reverse spin, some make it spin in the body plane and others go perpendicular to it. As always, experiment and see which is the best one for you.
A good hint is to start by watching the end of the club that you intend to catch, and the moment that you make the catch shift your attention to the top of the club to maintain the balance. Also, you probably need less spin than you think you do on the throw.
Some other ideas include:
- Continuous 180° or 360° flips, so that the balanced club is moving continuously
- Throwing the balanced club straight up with no spin, and instead flipping the club that is in your hand
- Flipping both the balanced club, and the one in your hand through 180°
