the act of the Flier rotating 360o, feet over head, in a tucked
position during the Toss.
Okay, now lets get a few key ideas set in our mind on how to approach
the stunt. These are very important and should be kept in mind the
entire time. They are as follows:
Set. Fliers, you must set high in your tuck or you will never get all
the way around.
Drive. Bases, you must drive with the heel of your hand and push with
your thumb to help initiate the rotation.
Attention. Bases, take everything you have ever learned and know about
a Toss and throw it out the door. The technique for a rewind is
completely different and contrary to the normal Toss.
This stunt will begin from the Toss. Warning, this stunt is very
difficult to spot. It is highly suggested that you use two or more
Base - Instead of grabbing the Flier at the waist and holding your
elbows out, place the heel of your hand just above the hips and pull
your elbows into your side. This is more of a push technique than a
- You do not grab the Bases' wrist for this stunt. Since you will be
performing a tuck, you need to have your arms in a low V position in
order to set better and complete the rotation.
- Once you say the count, follow the Flier's jump and then drive
upward pushing through the heel of your hand and finishing with a
small flick of your thumbs.
- Jump just as you would for a standing back except ride the set
higher. If you set too low you'll never get around in time. Ride the
push all the way to the top and then set. Stay tight and don't open up
too soon. Wait just a fraction of a second longer then stand tall.
- After the flick, spot the feet coming around and wait till the Flier
has begun to stand before grabbing the feet.
Bases, you will have a tendency to absorb too much when grabbing the
feet. Don't be afraid of the tuck. Be aggressive and reach for those
feet. Flier's, your biggest two problems will be either setting to low
or opening up to soon. Wait for both of them. Remember, grab some
extra spots for this stunt. All inversion stunts should be taken with
plenty of precautions.
