Epic Pen Spinning

Watch more with these video collections:

Watch as pen spinners Ian Jenson and 吳宗諺 (PPM) perform some epic pen spinning, complete with a few great slow motion moments that really showcase what’s going on. This short from Taiwan’s Kuma Films makes us want to get some weighted spinning pens, but anyone can start practicing with an everyday pencil, too: How to Spin a Pencil Around Your Thumb.

Update via LaughingSquid: “PPM is currently competing in the video-based Pen Spinning World Cup 2014, in which he is a semi-finalist.”

In the archives: spinningtricks, and practice.
