Hi I'm new to HOP too. Thanks for the poipoi tutorials link, Eled - that's really useful. I've learned loads of moves from a book I have but seeing them on video can really make the difference for some of the moves.

i too just recieved a new set of black and red cobras, never had ones with tails before.... i found it useful to watch as many poi vids on www.youtube.com as i could, half of them are balls but some of them are really excellent to learn from...out of interest has any one tried airwraps with cobras ? i cant get them to work but maybe im just being crap at it (and yes i can do them with my other poi with no tails :P )

a lot of the tutorials on poipoi arnt there unfortunately. I though my poipoi cobra 2 were crap personally. The clasp kept on coming undone and the heads fell off. Far easier with strings or some nylon handels with O link from here

Airwraps just don't seem to work very well with tailed poi. I think it's that the air resistance makes the poi slow down too much in the middle of the hyperloop.

The Guide is definitive. Reality is frequently inaccurate.
