The Scissors Catch by Michael J. Stillwell


Frame 1: From a cascade, throw a right hand double straight up. It should be slightly underspun.

Frame 2: Slap the left hand club into the right hand alongside the club already there.

Frame 3: When the descending club is at chest level and the fat end is pointing straight down, thrust the clubs you hold forward to trap the descending club as shown. You'll have to practice to get the spin right. For an advanced version, try this trick behind the back, under the leg or with pirouettes!
