    Ron usually recommends flipping naked. Has a whole routine he does on his lawn apparently.

    That’s part of the ‘special’ catch at the end.

    Naked Flipping? Is that a thing? Sounds like a good way to inadvertently curcumsize yourself...

    it's just as well.

    i tried using the search function to find the thread i saw it (flipping the dark) mentioned in and i failed miserably.

    i just wanted to thank whomever it was.

    this was far more rewarding.

    Y'all are crazy. I Tried it.....imagined I was a real ninja....then my 8yr old knocked on the door. But I can definitely see the benefits of doing it.

    I tried it (in the dark) w/my cheap-o trainer the other day... it is NOT easy... kept messing up the twirl & y2ks to no end (could do some)... gotta keep on practicing (both, w/light & in the dark).

    Hmm flipping without sight founds fun... I assume it is to help your fingers with muscle memory to do the combo without backing up of sight... I have band aids on standby

    I don' recommend doing it until you're very confident but even then I don' think there's a reason to do it. I have a few times but I'd you'e at the point where you can comfortably flip in the dark, there isn't much reason to.

    I put on a blindfold and flipped about 30 mins it was interesting not being able to see but nit to hard overall once you have muscle memory down.

    I have said it in some threads not to long ago trying to help some one improve along with tip about either using land lotion or wet hands to practice.

    Thank you for the tip. I couldn't for the life of me remember who had said it and our search function is for shit.

    I in fact enjoy flipping blind sometimes and it does help muscle memory a lot.
