Tualoop: the how-to
There are countless ways to throw the Tualoop and make it bounce and roll. Here are just a few basic techniques for the beginner:
1. Throw the ring by pulling your arms apart evenly.
2. Make the ring fly vertically in a high curve. Aim it at the ground to make it bounce and roll.
3. Press the ring against the stick with your thumb while pointing down with it. Give it a good swing, release, and see it float it the air.
4. Hold the ring horizontally using two sticks, with your dominant arm in front. Bring the ring close to your body and then swing out with the dominant arm, releasing it like a frisbee.
5. Lay the ring flat on the ground. Place the point of the stick inside the ring and swing it forward, making the ring fly along the ground like a puck.
Use two sticks to catch the ring safely! Protect your hands by forming a triangle with the sticks!
