HIGH SPEED FREESTYLE COMPETITION


 


(video made by jmvicuna)

A couple of weeks ago I had an idea. I noticed that alot of people here were very interrested in the old Dolan's Sports Universal Swivels. I have an original pair of chucks that I purchased about 28 years ago that I never even use. I emailed Jose and asked him what he thought about me donating these chucks as a prize in a competition. He thought it was a great idea and together with the other moderators of the site and ran the idea past them. We then got together and went over the rules and here we are. I hope people will enjoy participating in this tournament. These chucks are 14" cherry wood, octagon and are 1" taper to 1 1/8" with U-Swivels 4 link chain and weigh 16 ounces.

 

This competition will be focus on speed. The Spinner with the faster freestyle will win this awesome nunchaku.
