This trick starts in the same way as a Straddle Whip or a Backend Straddle Whip. At the moment of the catch, open with a half twist to catch the stick (or the bar on a bar-to-bar rig). The trick is also possible with a Whip. Making this half turn is possible because of the opening of the trick, doing it on a non-opening trick like a Planche is possible, but harder.
