Spinworkx First Mount #13 - Green Triangle

Just ask any modern / new-skool Spinner about a yo-yo trick known as Green Triangle, and they will know it instantly. The Green Triangle trick has been well known to be one of the mounts in a combo that is the climax of the entire combo, and many Spinners have thought up many variations on how to get into a Green Triangle from Lacerations, Slacks, String-trick Combos and more.

Here, we will be demonstrating the simple method of getting into a Green Triangle. The Green Triangle trick was invented by Duncan Crew USA member, and trick innovator, Paul Escolar. It has been around for over 10 years now, and still remains one of the most popular string tricks / mounts in the Spinning world.

Let's go on to a step-by-step breakdown on how to perform the Green Triangle Mount.

Firstly, the Green Triangle is yet another Sidestyle trick, so throw a Breakaway. When the yo-yo is swinging from your throwing hand to your non-throwing hand, let the yo-yo swing over with the string resting on your non-throwing hand index finger just like performing a Trapeze Brother mount.

Once it is resting on your non-throwing index finger, let the yo-yo swing in the opposite direction from the initial throw and swing over towards your throwing hand.

When the yo-yo is moving towards your throwing hand, instead of letting it swing over your index finger and into a Trapeze Brother mount, swing the yo-yo over your throwing hand wrist and land the yo-yo onto that same string.

Once the yo-yo lands onto the string and is sitting comfortably on the string, let the string drop off your wrist and onto the connecting string segment and you should see the 'triangle' formation that your string makes.

There you have it, the Green Triangle mount.

**Do note, when dismounting the Green Triangle mount, hop the yo-yo off the string from the BACK, not the front, so that you do not get into a knot.**

A few pointers to take note of when learning the Green Triangle Mount:
1) Remember to aim the yo-yo to land onto the right string.
2) When swinging the yo-yo over your throwing hand wrist to land onto the string, remember to allow a slightly longer string segment before swinging the yo-yo over your wrist so that the yo-yo is able to have enough string length to land onto the string.
3) When dropping the string off your wrist to complete the Green Triangle, remember to do it slow and steady to prevent the yo-yo from dropping off the string entirely.

That is all for this edition of the Spinworkx First Mount Project.
