Figure 8 variations video!
Aug 24th, 2013 at 10:13am
 
Hey guys, finished this video yesterday. My apologies for the low quality. The nice camera's card was full but I'll definitely empty it and use it next time.

Here's some variations of figure 8 including no-drop, Balearic legal, flying, big drop, sidearm release, knee drop, regular, and double tap (speed slinging).
Music is TSFH Army of Drummers.

Nice slinging, but with that quality i´d say its not worth the effort to film it. I would have just enjoyed the slinging and make a good qualityvideo later.

BTW. I would REALLY love to see a GroPro itself slung Wink Especially pointing to the hand while slinging and in slowmo of course. That would be a great angle  Cheesy

like the taiko drumming Thumbs Up
And the kneeling down shot - great way to lower your aim without losing power.
Bending your legs at release has the same effect for those of us with buggered knees Smiley

But is it just me or does the vest and shorts make you look about 12 noidea

But you did miss out an actual variation of fig 8

checkout this guys sling golf technique with a very long sling.
I keep meaning to try it out. But either don't have along sling on me when I remember or don't remember when I do.
Looks good too - kind the fig 8 version of the balearic showboating Smiley

Alright, the nice camera is ready to go now so I'll get some much more clear video in the near future.

CA, wearing sleeveless shirts and swim trunks might make me look younger (or more likely its the 240p), but there is truly no more comfortable set of clothes in the summer time.  Smiley

I'll definitely try out that version of figure 8 sometime.

Good slinging, Dan, even if it seems to be just a little hard on the camera.   

C_A, is he doing a figure eight motion in front of himself, also?

   Great video, Dan.  My Byzantine has somehow morphed into Figure 8.  I never intentionally learned Figure 8, it just happened, very recently.  I still have to perfect my timing to get full power but so far I'm liking figure 8.  I guess I'll have to work on the Greek styles after this since they're all that's left for me to learn other than Pirouette.  In that I walk the Huskies while I sling it's not likely I'll be adding Pirouette anytime soon.  Anyway, once again, great video.
