Posted:you could try practising the transfers between each trick so they are as smooth as the tricks themselves. apart from that try training with slower tempo music, spinnig fast and controlled is very difficult, spinning fast and sloppy is easy, the difference is huge and well worth the work,i personally think fast smooth spinning is beautiful good luck

Posted:you're not using the momentum properly. You're using it to speed up, which is right, but you're not knowing when to stop applying force, and just let the stick spin itself now and again, or even apply opposite force to slow it down some.
Just relax, and you'll be fine. this does click in your mind with practice. Practice spinning, but only applying just enough force to keep the stick moving super slowly.
After a while, you'll find the speed that is right for you, and the above exercise will help you keep it in that speed.
Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water. Put Water into a cup, it becomes the cup, put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can flow, or it can Crash. Be Water My Friend.

Posted:Also, I think a mix of slow and fast spinning can look really beautiful, it doesnt need to be one speed all the time but when you are slowing down or speeding up you should practise doing it smoothly, as it can go very easily into a sloppy movement. Hope this helps
