YMMV, but this particular theory on air wraps helped me a lot with simplifying my understanding of airwraps, and I find it to work pretty damn consistently well for teaching other spinners. Also opens up a whole bunch of plane changing possibilities later on lol.

Although, when I originally learned air wraps, I just kept on trying it over and over again for a number of weeks until I could do them 20 times in a row on demand. Much pain was involved hahaha. (Especially since I was spinning glowsticks then XD )

EDIT: Also, if you find your air wraps are turning into hyperloops or orbitals, what that generally means is that you're moving your hands too much, and turning the imaginary axis between them perpendicular to the direction of spin, rather than keeping parallel (sorta, not really, you'll see if you watch the video) to the direction of spin.
