Catching on the wrong end
Here you are. Your partner screwed up once again and you have to manage
a wrong end catch. It is too late anyway, so try to catch the club instead
of stopping and yelling at him (or her).
There are several methods to manage a wrong end catch; here are 3 of them:
1. Correct the spin for the next throw
Try with one club--take it by the wrong side in the right hand and try to
throw it to the left hand by giving it half a spin (better) or one and
a half spins. The half spin may be harder at the beginning but it is easier to
do with experience in some more complicated passing patterns and it is less
obvious ( for the audience).
Then try while juggling alone by intentionally throwing such "bad" throws, which will arrive upside down, and catch them.
Finally, try while doing a passing pattern. Depending on your partner's skill level, you may not have to bribe him or her into throwing wrong. Beware of the rhythm: with certain rhythms ( ultimate, 3-count....) you have to throw back the club you've just caught, so look at the text below (throw the club back).
2. Throw the club back
I'll just give a quick idea. Whatever rhythm you're using, there is always a way
(throw a double, triple...) to throw back the club you have on the wrong
side to your partner (he is often responsible for that, so that's quite fair).
Since you are a nice person, though, you could try to add or remove half a spin from your pass (but with normal height).
3. Do a hand manipulation
With some practice, it is possible to reverse the club in the hand which has
caught it before even throwing it back (with a self or a pass). It has to be
done during the "dwell hold". Do not throw it again to make it do
half a spin, but rather try to keep the contact with the club.
There are 2 versions of this trick depending on the direction in which the club spins.
