Step 2: The Catch

If step 1 was done correctly the pen should have done a 360 degree turn around your thumb as if it was magically glued but how do you catch it?

As it comes around from the intial spin back to where you started just take your index finger and try and catch the pen in the same place you started from.

If you require more help or wish to further learning more tricks ( yes there are more =P) go to upsb.info and register on the forums.

Do you know how to twirl it around all fingers, because most of the time i see them twirl it around all fingers. I dont mean that i dont know how to do it but, i think you could make a good instructable on keeping i twirling with all but you thumb. I cant make one like this, because it would need none computer generated images, and i dont have the right plugs for a camera, i tried it in all of them, but it doesnt fit.
I can twirl it around my fingers, thumb, wrist, arm, AND LEG!
I learned this in a half hour!!!

I'd have to say, the video helped a ton. I was slightly confused until I watched that. Now I just have to practice catching it. XD

I am [mumble] years old and I still can't do the pen spinning thing. I've tried a few times, to no avail. This looks like it's going to help me get it, finally. But we'll see. hehe! Thanks very much! By the way, is it too weird for me to say that you have a lovely hand? :)
