Favourite Examinable Tenyo trick?

Postby Joe Mckay » June 16th, 2016, 2:26 am

In light of Andy's excellent presentation for use with examinable Tenyo tricks - I was wondering what everyone's favourite examinable Tenyo trick was?

Mine is Squeeze Play. Which is a Tenyo classic. But I am wondering if I am missing out on an even better choice?

You can see Andy's presentation in the bottom half this blog post:


And here is a post on BoingBoing covering Andy's idea:

For me, it may be impossible to narrow it down to just one. The best I could do is maybe a top five. When you have Crystal Cleaver, Squeeze Play, Cubio, and others eligible, it's a tough call.

I'm particularly fond of any version of Cubio

Two tricks that come to mind are Phanto Block and Alpha Tunnel.
Both of those look so simple that spectators are sure they can do it if given the opportunity.
It's fun to watch them put the pieces together every which way and still have no idea as to how it was done.

Alpha Tunnel is a good trick all around for many reasons.
