Double Passes

Selfs and Double Passes

One big problem with having many double passes in a pattern is, that it becomes very hard (compared to single passes) to see how your pass arrives, because you are looking upwards for the double passes you receive. So here are among others patterns in which one side throws single passes while the other throws double passes.

Doubles in Well-Known Base Patterns

These are mostly useful if people feel very secure in the base pattern, as they can be done as a trick.

  • early double - in all 6 club half-synchronous patterns like 4-count, 3-count, 2-count, PPS, PPSS
  • late double - in 4-count, 3-count, 2-count
  • two early doubles in PPS: 4p4p1 in PPS

Preliminary "Dry" Practice

Adapted Well-Known Base Patterns

One side can throw double passes in patterns resembling 5-count, 4-count, etc.

But the patterns really are asynchronous have to include a "self-zip" on one side to accomodate the double.

Somewhat Easy Patterns

  • dpass self zip self zip - 96622 The slow glass elevator)

Medium Difficulty Patterns

  • 942 - glass elevator
  • PZPZPZZ (doubles) - 9229922

The best-known "classic" pattern

  • 7-club 2-count <4p|3><3|4p> - both straight passes or both diagonal passes

Patterns beyond 7-club 2-count (kind of)

  • 7-club 2-count, both throwing diagonal
  • 7-club Jim's 2-count 9964966
  • 7-club 3-count 966
  • 8-club 2-count with doubles
  • 7-club why-not
