    does a record still count even if you mess up at the last trick?

    example if I were to get to bust 7x but I mess up on bust 8x and drop the pen, does that still count as a bust 7x?

    Depends how hard you wanna be on yourself. I'd say to count it, but others may say differently.

    @kuro Kind of a late reply but I wasn't very active lately so I didn't see this when it was just posted, and I do think this is worth saying.
    Let's bring things to an extreme. Let's say that the world record for, since you already used them as an example, busts, is 100. It's obviously not but let's pretend for the sake of argument. So say that the world record is 100 and you do bust x10000 but drop at x10001. Do you now have the world record? It would seem like bs to not count that since you DID just do 100 times more busts than the previous wr, regardless of whether or not you dropped afterwards.
    If that applies in an extreme situation, common sense suggests that it propably applies in normal situations too. I say it counts, though it definitely takes away from the presentation/execution/style/whatever.

    InverseReverse I assume you mean thespyre pen modding website or by FPSB (i don't know if was down for these past few days since I just found out about it). Unless you do actually mean which is a shows a GoDaddy available webpage type thing for me.

    I'm guessing they didn't pay their hosting bill or whatnot. Anyway it's back up now.

    Scary thing though. That website has enormous amounts of information and I don't think anyone would have been surprised if it was shut down forever, like many other pen spinning websites.


    I have a question. When was UPSBv5 opened to the general public? Was it December 18, 19, or 20 of 2014? Or was it a different date?

    I can confirm, on the 20th the url was set to redirect to v5, which is how i found out and joined, but the fact that it was open was announced to the public on the 21st

    oh thanks

    I also have another question, how do get better at rev tricks palm down (i can only do them palm up besides some rev tricks that use the normal charge like bak rev). I'v been trying to learn some combos but, most of them use bak's and I can only bak rev. So I figured I need to get better at rev tricks pd cause i'm horrible at them.

    Honestly, just practice. Try using a long wooden dowel or something heavy like that to get the motion down if you need to
