Like which way? Like his finger in the throat and the racquet spinning horizontally or what?

One of the pro's at our club does that. His finger is on the stringbed and it twirls horizontally. I can't do it myself, but he does it easily. (Course, being a tennis pro he has a lot of time on his hands.) He says just find the center balance point, and start spinning.

Now, I can do the "gun-slinger" type of twirl with my finger in the V of the neck - but that's pretty basic. Anyone can do that.

I can sometimes get a good twirl with my finger on the butt of the racquet and the racquet vertical. The problem is that when I drop it it tends to land square on the head - which ain't good.
