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 sixteenth trick in the Trick Tutorials line-up, we have a hop trick that was made popular by 2011 Asia Pacific 1A Champion, Christopher Chia. The Eli Hop is a simple yo-yo hop that yo-yo players around the world has come to love. But in 2011, Christopher Chia did a variation of the simple hop, adding the Inverted Eli Hop into his AP winning routine and that made the trick famous.
Now, from time to time, you will see this trick performed in contest freestyles all over. Again, just like the Over the Arm hops, we recommend that you know how to do Eli Hops, and do it consistently. Once you have got that down pat, the Inverted Eli Hop is just a slight modification to that trick.
This is yet another 'big' looking trick that is excellent for freestyles or performances. So be sure to master your Eli Hops, and then the Inverted Eli Hop, and these tricks will visually add more to all your freestyles!

Have fun practicing, and keep spinning!
