Hello, spinners! You are on PenSpin and by the end of this video you’re gonna know how to do Sonic Reverse – variation of one of 4 fundamental tricks with a pen. If you don’t know how to do Sonic or any other fundamentals – check out my video about 4 basic tricks in pen spinning, link in description below.

While doing Sonic Reverse your pen moves from one slot to another making 1 full circle rotation 360 degree behind one finger counterclockwise. It looks like this and it could be made in slots 12-23 and 23-34. Today I will show you it in 12-23 as it is much easier to get and to do than the second one. Of course later you should learn it in all possible slots. Sonic reverse as well as Sonic Normal could be made Palm Up, Palm Side and Palm Down, this tutorial will show you Palm Side variation.

When we were learning Sonic Normal we could divide our study into 2 steps – abutting Sonic and just Sonic, while learning Sonic Reverse – we have only one step as there couldn’t be abutting version. You’d better to know Charge  Reverse to learn Sonic Reverse easier. I don’t have video about this trick till now and probably wouldn’t make  one, as it would be pretty much the same as for Charge Normal but with different direction of pen’s movement.

Take a pen in slot 12 at the center of gravity parallel to the floor, than push it a little with your Index finger to make it as athwart to floor as possible. 1 and 2 are pretty relaxed, a bit folded.  This would be the starting position for Sonic Reverse, take a look. Now straighten all fingers, Middle finger a little bit less than others, as it should stay pretty down to let your pen go behind it, Index – more than others, it should go above Middle and bump penmod behind it. Your Ring Finger should rise as well, you need to try to connect it with your Index to make this kind of lock with 1 and 3. If you have seen my video about Normal Sonic it should look familiar, right?

But this time Index leans to Ring much more. While doing Sonic Reverse it does the main work, making initial inertia, pushing pen and leading it behind Middle.

After pen passes your Middle finger, move Index away and lift Middle Finger slightly and down Ring Finger a little, fixing the pen in slot 23. Make sure that the same tip of the pen which was down before the movement is down after the movement, so you could be sure the pen made 1 full revolution.

As time passes and you make Sonics more and more, your fingers would begin to move differently. The lock would be less strongly marked, Middle Finger would stay at the same level. When you will learn Sonic Reverse 12-23 – you can start to practice Sonic Harmonic – when you continuously make Sonic Normal and Reverse one after another. It would let you better understand Sonics. As you see, while doing Sonic Harmonic my Middle finger’s movement is almost not noticeable, here you can see better which finger works more during each of these 2 tricks.
