I don't know how many people in UG spin pens, but I've recently become attracted to this, shall we call it "sport". Yes, pen spinning. Sounds lame, but it helps fill in the voids between class lectures. Plus, think of all the girls you can pick up with these nifty tricks? What tricks you ask? Why these tricks.

also check out superhandz.com. or something along those lines.


Ya, that's another good site. This hobby is mainly for people with too much time on their hands. That's why I'm putting it here for all guitarists to see. It's also a good hand dexterity exercise for those who are in need of increasing their flexibility and finger strength. Something many budding guitarists need.

Racism is not tolerated here folks. Not trying to be a hard ass or anything, but rules are rules. Plus, I take offense to that.

Yeah, in high school I was in debate, so I had to learn how to do it. For more fun try it with knives in the dark (don't sue me when you stab yourself or your cat).

Looks OK, but when I really think about it it's just a lame version of Majoretting.

This was much much funnier, and much more entertaining;

Talented? Yes.


What I find hillarious is the backing music. They've made spinning a pen sound like the most challenging and worthwhile activity known to man. Utterly hillarious.

During my exams, once I finished it was all I would ever do.

EDIT: I love the way they have modded their pens. Playcolour2 mod, G-3 mod...

Hmmm, don't be so quick to judge people. It's not that hard to pick up on these tricks and to say someone doesn't have a life is kind of rude...
