# Zapnips (Zaps on Parsnips)

"Zapnips" are patterns based on the Selfless Passing series and specifically based on Parsnip, but some of the passes are changed to a kind of "early zap".

All the patterns based on Parsnip in this way stay compatible with Parsnip.

--> One side can throw Parsnip, the other side can throw one of these. You can also change between all of these patterns (and Parsnip) while juggling.

## Difficulty

### Based on Inverted Parsnip (4 clubs)

Relatively easy patterns with Zaps:

- only 4 clubs
- no selfs
- "lyrics" difficulty (remembering the pattern): medium

### Based on Parsnip (5 clubs)

With the patterns based on Parsnip (as far as included as of now):

- "technical" difficulty: easy to medium (compared to other patterns with zaps - no heffs, mostly no selfs)
- "lyrics" difficulty: medium to hard (5 different things on a period 5 pattern in one case)

### Based on PPPPZ (6 clubs)

- "technical" difficulty: overall higher than with parsnip due to the extra club
- with heff: much more difficult, because of the combination of heff and zap

- "lyrics" difficulty: easier than with the 5-club patterns as less different throws are mixed

## Patterns based on Parsnip (5 clubs)

The local base pattern sequence of Parsnip for a juggler is PPzPz (Pass, Pass, zip, Pass, zip).

Every combination "pass, zip" can be switched to become "Flip, Zap", leading to these three seqences:

(Flips are thrown as flats in the animation shown here, but are supposed to be [[flip]s, this will be fixed at some point in the future. Passist.org shows flips instead)

A 1|2: P F Z P z B 1|1: P z P F Z

A 1|2 and B 1|1: see Pattern Start Notation ; P=pass ; z=zip ; Z=Zap ; F=full Flip;

Long form:

A 1|2: Pass Flip Zap Pass zip B 1|1: Pass zip Pass Flip Zap

### PPzFz - 74752

A 1|2: P P z F Z B 1|1: F Z P P z

A 1|2 and B 1|1: see Pattern Start Notation ; P=pass ; z=zip ; Z=Zap ; F=full Flip;

### PFZFZ - Sir Zaphod Flipalot (Jr.) - 57445

A 1|2: P F Z F Z B 1|1: F Z P F Z

A 1|2 and B 1|1: see Pattern Start Notation ; P=pass ; z=zip ; Z=Zap ; F=full Flip;

We can also go one step further on the "PPz" part, transforming both Passes into Zaps, the zip becomes a Self.

### SZZPz - 56752

A starts with a Zap (although A only has 2 clubs), B follows a bit later with a pass:

A 1|1: Z Z P z S B 1|2: P z S Z Z

A 1|1 and B 1|2: see Pattern Start Notation ; P=pass ; z=zip ; Z=Zap ; F=full Flip; S=Self

And this can of course be combined with Flip-Zap on the ramaining Pass-Zip:

## Patterns Based on Martin's Madness PPPPz (6 Clubs) with a heff

Combining Zaps and Heffs is of higher difficulty, because you want to look up for your Heff and look down for the incoming Zap, so this gets its own section.
