it's not a voluntary counter-rotation and that is the problem; I feel like it makes these 270s more difficult, less-consistent to land and more importantly it's fucking with my spins if I try to do 360 I stop at about the 270ish mark. I could take another video of me failing at fs 360 on a jump, but it would look very much like my 270 on, so I am trying to correct this problem too.

Thanks so far!
what really helped me learn FS 3s was forcing my self to keep my jaw on my left shoulder. I see people mess up spins all the time just because they stop looking the way they are spinning.
also as a veteran jibber the 270 on will feel extremely weird and wrong but eventually it will click. also try committing more weight on your foot thats mostly on box to prevent slipping off and make the jib feel more solid. I still feel a bit sketchy when i 270 onto a box and land dead center of my board.
