3-Finger Hold

This hold is a good starting and finishing move. It is also fascinating when come by suddenly - The front view looks like the ball is just balancing on the end of the fingers. The side is even more magical sometimes.

It can be very impressive when you are rolling the ball around your arms for a while, then suddenly stop with the ball apparently just balancing on your fingertips.

Start learning this by making a tripod of your index, middle and ring fingers. Balance the ball on the fingertips. To begin with, the fingertips should be held wide apart, but as you gain experience, try to bring the fingertips closer and closer. Eventually, you come to a point where you can't bring the fingertips closer without bending the middle finger. Stop there - bending the finger makes the hold lose some of its appeal.
