Yet another, and the in my opinion hardest to grasp, fundamental. The pen makes rotations between the fingertips of 2 and 3 (in it’s normal mode, ofcourse you can also make it rotate between any other 2 fingers…). The pen is constantly between these two fingers, it just makes rotations by moving mostly the bottom finger, but also the top finger a bit , back and forth. This trick is actually performed like a Sonic except you don’t bend 2 down.

Charge 1

Step 1: Hold the pen as if you were going to perform a Sonic, between 2 and 3 (and with the rear stuck behindyour thumb if you still haven’t really grasped the trick), but keep your fingers a little bent.
Charge 2
Step 2: Strech out your fingers and bend 3 backwards a little. The tip that was down when you started should now start making a movement upwards.

Charge 3

Step 3: Let the pen continue it’s rotation untill the side that was down in the beginning is on top, and then…

Charge 4

Step 4: …bend 3 a little forward instead and 2 backward, and let the pen make a rotation towards the thumb.

Charge 5-1

Step 5: Catch the pen with your thumb or keep doing steps 2-4 over and over again to get a continuous movement.

    Honestly, I thought, all this time, that Charge was between 1 and 2.

    I suggest using 2 hands to learn this trick. One hand is the one you are spinning it on, and the other hand is to grab the pen and turn it in circles.
    After getting a feel of how the pen spinning motion should feel like, let go of the other hand and try spinning the pen. To start off, use your wrist to help if needed (although it looks ugly). Slowly, limit wrist movement and go into large finger movements. Then limit finger movement.
    With some practice, Viola!
    Hope it helped.

  6. How do you keep the pen from slipping? I’ve figured out how to do a charge but I can’t keep my pen in place.
