Is that the same thing as a tic-toc?

It looks like it.

This is tick-tock, but it is also called idling. This is kindof an issue for devil sticks that not enough people really play them to standardise all the names of the moves, so people give they're own names and then we get more than 1 name for many of the tricks.

Personally I would rather use the term idling as a general term for the different "stances" that you go into between doing tricks, like tick-tock, crossed tick-tock, and helicopter, as all these tricks are essentially idle because you're not exerting yourself doing a crazy move, but are instead used as platform to spring other moves off of. That would make more sense to me, but I guess I'm not exactly any kind of authority on the subject. I wonder if anyone is...
