    The important thing is balance.
    Philly hands must have balance and flow.
    Get a normal hand first, then make the letters taller, while still keeping them balanced.

    ^Saiko's got it.
    Uniform, Balance and flow.
    Find your take, make the letters stand up
    and practice.

    yeah, basically take your hand, stretch it as far as you can without making it look like shit, and most of the time flare at the top and bottom.

    Yeah basically take simple letters, stretch them high and low and then jazz the letter structure up...

    kids need to stop trying to do philly styles outside of philly. if you're not from philly you can't do them besides its not something you'll never figure out on your own its taught to young bucks by old heads so don't even bother. whatever wack shit that you produce and think is a philly style is not gonna come close. you wanna learn philly styles? how about you move to philly

    Oatmeal said it best....I don't care how nice you think you got your philly style, if you're not from philly or weren't taught by a real philly head you're just gonna be pissing in the wind.

    nah dude. im born and bread philly. and im pretty sure that unless you were schooled in philly hands and history you're not doing philly styles. anything you do that you think is philly style is probably wack af. also you have no idea what you are talking about. I've been schooled by some of the best in this city and you dont know the first thing about these handstyles.

    its about flow and matching not being "even and percise" its about can control cap use speed and wrist moment. and saying "philly handstlye" is way too general.

    there's wickets of all different fourms whips tall prints free style free forum. top to bottoms. fades. flat tops. triangles. hearts. it goes on and on. so please stop. unless you're from philly and are taught by an old head its something you'll never understand.

    and by no means is it a "hand stretched" thats the dumbest S*** ive heard. we have a location based handstyle unlike most cities SF being one of the only others. and we aim to keep it that way. you wanna learn. move here.
