I know ha
I try doing the charge but i keep throwing the pen after the initial swing. Like the pen just flies right out of my hand
if you flick the pen off of that flap on your thumb, you're probably flicking too hard.
try to rely more on the manipulation of the pen using your fingers, not the momentum from the initial movement
Maybe it also helps if you try to do it without the push of the thumbflap.
yep I basically tried to do it without putting way too much pressure and I managed to do the first half correctly (thanks for your help)
I know that pushing the pen without using the thumb flap is how you do the charge repeatedly, I managed to get the first part right and now im struggling with continuously doing it. (ie; multiple single charges without using the thumb flap)
It's pretty easy once you get the hang of it. Basically, to do charge continuous you have to be able to do charge consistently. start with your fingers in the middle of the pen and do a single charge without your thumb flap. Then, do the same thing but do it twice by using the ending momentum from your previous charge. rinse and repeat and you have your continuous charge. You might notice that your fingers go off center the more continuous charges you do but that can be fixed by simply practicing. If you have trouble doing two charges or more then that could mean that your charge does not have the right form. Try watching tutorials on youtube to gain a more clear understanding of the trick. Hope this helped. :]
First trick I learnt was charge normal, however I listened to the tutorial wrongand I got used to using top finger to spin it. Is there anyway I can do it proper way and use bottom finger instead? I mean im trying as hard as I can to not move top finger but it moves by itself.
What do you mean by "top finger" and "bottom finger"? I don't know how to help you, because I don't know what you mean by that.
I mean the one at the top when spinning, well in that case by top I index and bottom mid finger since I learnt doing it on 24.
@xHuan I see no harm in using top (index) finger to spin it as I also first learnt it that way (fyi, I didn't learn it from tutorial video). By the time you get the motion down and feel comfortable with it, your bottom (middle) finger will also move in accordance with your top finger. Imho, what you should be focusing on is to get the charge motion and keep practicing. Then you won't feel the need to check whether which of your fingers is spinning
By the way, is it easier to do charge with palm up or down? Or the question actually should be is there sense of practicing both with palm up and down?
My advice is to practice both. Perhaps, start with palm up first but if you want to do like what your tutorial says then do the palm down first. Because I think when doing the palm down, you'll rely more on middle finger. It's probably shouldn't be much difference between these two but I do feel it somehow.
By the way, I learnt the palm up first
Do you have problems doing the sonic because of the way you do your charge, i was trying to learn the charge, then kinda just understand how the sonic was done as well, but is seems since i do charge between my ring and middle finger, and spin with the middle, i feel as though its getting in the way and preventing my sonic as well as making the charge harder to do.
Hmm not much cause after you use your middle finger to push the pen enough to create charge motion, you just bend it down to do the sonic. But, of course, if you feel uncomfortable, maybe you could try doing the other way around
