    Hey guys,

    Not sure if any of you are interested but I've been going on a breakdown binge and wanted to share. I plan on copying the combo starting at 0:30 here:

    I'm hoping to be able to film it in a week but we'll see what happens. Here's my archaic breakdown:

    Flick TF ~> FL TA Reverse TF-23 -> Sonic 23-12 -> Pass 12-23 -> Pass Reverse 23-12 -> Shadow 12-23 -> Neo Sonic 23-T2 -> Pass Reverse T2-23 -> Sonic Reverse 23-34 ~> Pass Around 24-12 -> Scissor Spin 12-T4 -> Flick T4-T3 -> Pass Reverse T3-13 -> Neo Sonic 13-T2 -> Tipped Charge T2-23 -> Sonic Reverse 23-34 ~> Pass Around 24-12 -> Neo Sonic 12-T1 -> Tipped Charge T1-12 -> Pass Reverse 12-T2* -> Pass T2-12 -> Shadow Reverse 12-12 ~> Midbak 1.5 23-23 -> Midbak 1.5 23-23

    I just re-discovered ramio this morning. Such a slick spinner.

    If you need any clarification I will be more than happy to help. Good luck!

    Hello spinners!

    Welcome to week 2 of "Learn a Combo w/ sangara". This week we have a very old combo from my all time favorite spinner Leviathan. I think this combo stands the test of time with it's aesthetics, it may be old and simple but it's got some really great fundamental mini combos.

    I'm giving this combo a 1/5 on the difficulty scale or a 1.5/5 with a pencil.

    Breakdown:
    Sonic 34-23 ~> Pass Reverse 24-12 -> Backaround 12-12 ~> FL TA Reverse T1-23 -> Twisted Sonic 23-12 -> Neo Sonic 12-T1 -> FL TA Reverse T1-12 -> Neo Sonic 12-T1 -> Tipped Sonic T1-12 -> Twisted Sonic Reverse 12-23 -> Inverse Twisted Sonic Reverse 23-34 -> Inverse Twisted Sonic 34-23 -> Twisted Sonic 23-12 -> Scissor Spin 12-T1 -> Half Tap Reverse T1 ~> Pass Reverse T1-12 -> NeoBak 12-34 -> Sonic 34-23 -> Twisted Sonic Bust 23-12 -> Shadow Reverse 12-23 -> Inverse Twisted Sonic Reverse 23-34 -> Sonic 34-23 ~> Neo Sonic 24-12 -> Pass 12-23 -> Twisted Sonic 23-12 -> Pass Reverse 12-T1 -> Extended TA T1-12

    I'm giving this combo a 1/5 on the difficulty scale or a 1.5/5 with a pencil.

    Bite sized chunks (this is how I suggest learning this combo):

    1) Sonic 34-23 ~> Pass Reverse 24-12 -> Backaround 12-12 ~> FL TA Reverse T1-23

    Super simple mini combo here, just be sure to start with your COB (center of balance) on the inside of your hand to make the Backaround easier). Think of Sonic 34-23 ~> Pass Reverse 24-12 as just another Twisted Sonic.

    2) Twisted Sonic 23-12 -> Neo Sonic 12-T1 -> FL TA Reverse T1-12 -> Neo Sonic 12-T1 -> Tipped Sonic T1-12

    In my opinion this is the hardest part of the combo, the tricky part is making your FL TA Reverse land in that 12 spot again. I suggest learning that first, the Tipped Charge will come naturally.

    3) Twisted Sonic Reverse 12-23 -> Inverse Twisted Sonic Reverse 23-34 -> Inverse Twisted Sonic 34-23 -> Twisted Sonic 23-12 -> Scissor Spin .5 12-T1

    Hand turns, hand turns, hand turns. The reason why this one works is because of the hand turns. This really is a fundamental of pen spinning that a majority of people will learn on their own. If you're not aware, no excuse now.

    4) Twisted Sonic 23-12 -> Scissor Spin .5 12-T1 -> Pass Reverse T1-12 -> NeoBak 12-34

    You can see there's some overlap here, that's mainly because I can't find a name for that pause Leviathan takes after the scissor spin. The best I can come up with is a Pass Reverse to 12 for the Neobak. Play around with it.

    5) Sonic 34-23 -> Twisted Sonic Bust 23-12 -> Shadow Reverse 12-23

    Once again super simple mini combo, make sure your COB (center of balance) is on top of your hand. Take a pause to shift the momentum into reverse.

    6) Inverse Twisted Sonic Reverse 23-34 -> Sonic 34-23 ~> Neo Sonic 24-12 -> Pass 12-23 -> Twisted Sonic 23-12 -> Pass Reverse 12-T1 -> Extended TA T1-12

    For the last mini combo the only interesting part is the Neo Sonic 24-12, you could call this a Passaround Reverse 24-12 but I choose to stick with Neo Sonic. Once again HAND TURNS.

    Now it's up to you, either steal what you want or put it all together and copy the combo. It's great practice.
