The trick-set for these trick tutorials was thought up by 2011 World Yo-Yo Champion, Marcus Koh, and the elements in these short tricks are still used by Marcus in his contest freestyles.
For the fourteenth trick in the Trick Tutorials line-up, we have a cool, 'banger-esque' trick from the new school generation of Spinners. Presenting to you, the Reverse Brent Stole! The trick Brent Stole became really popular during the mid 2000s, and variations to that trick was slowly developed. One of the cool variations was the reverse version of the trick.
This trick will become easy to pull off when you understand the main concept of how to do the Brent Stole trick, and then understand how the Reverse version works. We won't go into a step by step description for this trick, as it has been explained well in the video. However, one major thing to remember whenever you are doing any Brent Stole variations, is that for the yo-yo to get into a Green Triangle, the string segment that is attached to your throwing finger MUST be in between the yo-yo and the string slack.
When learning this trick, be sure to understand how the Brent Stole works first. Once you get that perfect, give the Reverse Brent Stole a try. You can practice on a dead yo-yo first to simulate the motion and momentum of the whole trick setup before trying it spinning. This trick may be a tough one to get in your first few tries, but as long as you got the concept down, you will be able to hit it sooner rather than eventually.
This is one of our favorite tricks to do, and it looks really impressive when demonstrating tricks to friends or family. Be sure to learn and master this!
As always if you have any questions, you can hit us up on Facebook, Instagram, drop us an email, or come down and ask us (or the Throw Revolution team) on how to perfect this (or any other) trick!
Have fun practicing, and keep spinning!
