    Hey I have been practising and I think can do like three charge rotations here and there so progress lol. I had a quick off topic question. I can do the sonic in a fluke sort of way now mainly because my middle finger wont bend down all the way. I feel as though this is because my charge is spun with the middle that it wont go down all the way. Do you think it will work out or do you think i should try to learn the charge differently so that my sonic could work too? bc it aslo seems that I would have problems with the sonic clip.

    Glad to hear about your progress :)

    It worked out for me but if you feel that it obstructs you from doing other tricks then maybe you should change the way you learn your charge.

    Imo, there are many ways to learn. Find the one that work for you :thumb:

    charge is easier to learn using the web method then slowly easing it out to do cont. thats what i did atleast. i jist wanted to throw it out there yey

    its where u like put one end of the pen to the webbing between ur index and thumb and release it so it makes half the rotation then u control it to go back to the starting position while doing half of the rotation

    OH yaaaa that's what I do. But what do you mean by easing it out? Bc all I do is do that for the momentum then just start going crazy with my fingers :D but I feel that I don't even use the flap because its seems to just fall. I think for me it just acts as a more relaxed position to start to off in so its easier to start and to to get my fingers to move easily.

    youll need to try to do it without the help of the webbing. and then continuously do it

    How do suggest I get momentum to start? And I've seen like the pros hold it with their thumb then let it slide off..what's that about??

    it kinda just starts with the pen straight downward and the fingers just start the motion for me

    I'm learning the charge in all finger slots and I noticed that when doing it in 12 I use my index finger for the rotation rather than my middle finger. I heard you're supposed to use your "bottom" finger (in this case middle) for a all of the rotation. Is learning it with my index finger a bad habit?

    I am curious as to where you heard this advice (honestly curious). Was it from the previous posts? I have never heard about this "issue" with the Charge except for those posts. Are you sure you are only moving your index finger and your middle finger is staying still? That seems unlikely and hard to do. In any case, you can do the Charge any way you want, but using both fingers is probably the most "normal." However, if what you say is true, it would technically be best to learn all three of these ways of performing the Charge so you can do whichever fits a spinning situation best. In the end, it probably doesn't matter though. As you grow as a spinner you will likely figure out all sorts of styles/techniques to execute a certain trick, and you can use whichever you want.

    My middle finger does move a little but it's mostly my index finger, and when doing charge in 23 it's my ring finger moving more than my middle finger. I think I heard on a tutorial for the charge on YouTube that eventually your "bottom" finger (farthest to the left when doing palm up) will be the only one moving and I figured that should be what I strive for. Thanks for the help, I'll keep practicing it the way I have been.

    I'm learning the charge continuous and can make about 4-5 revolutions before it slides all the way to one end. Can anyone give me some advise as to how to overcome this? I'm hoping that if someone went through this, they can shorten my learning curve.
