    Thats actually quite easy. As you swing the racket with your finger around the racket throat, the inertia will keep the racket around your fingers, just practice with a lousy racket and you will get the hang of it in no time.

    But on the changing of hands part, i do not know how to do it.:p

    i rotate using my middle finger. it's a lot easier than using the index finger like him.

    what i do is grab the racket by the neck between my index and middle finger with the handle pointing down. im getting used to with my index finger now. still takes time. just dont' move your pivot finger too much or then you'll create none circular motion.

    If you want to spin it around your index finger, hold the racket throat between your index and middle fingers. If you want to spin it around your middle finger, hold the throat between your middle and ring fingers. It's easier with heavier rackets. I used to do this with my cab 9 all the time. Lighter rackets spin faster and are harder to control. Never tried the hand switch, I can only spin it with my right hand.

    Is it easier spinning around middle finger than index? Cause everytime I spin around index it flies off...Is there any motion you do with the finger? Like drawing circles or something that helps keep the racket spinning?

    I might as well upload a video of my reverse-fingerpass trick with a racquet instead of a pen.

    This one just amazes most people.. takes more practise though.
    It's like this, but done with a racquet:

    The one in the video ( above ) is the finger-pass, but the one I do is the reverse version.. haha

    yea i do the reserve way too with my left hand only. i can't to the that way. feels like my bone structure aren't flexible.

    try not moving your finger. instead moving your whole arm. you don't need to move it that much either. and don't try too hard.
