Posted:the other day i saw my buddy do a isolated hyper loop anyone else done one? could you? if anyone else has any moves that to "our" knowledge there are no videos for please share

Posted:no thats actually somthing completely different very interesting though but what he did was a isolated weave and from that to a isolated hyperloop like a isolated buzzsaw and another idea i just had and have done a little bit is a split time butterfloop

Posted:split time butterfloop works fine, just an adjustment in hand position. Not quite sure what you mean with the isolated hyperloop but I am working with antispin&inspin motion from orbitals if thats relevant? I think maybe the inspin orbital might be what you describe...
infinate hyperloops also have a rotational handpath even though they are not isolated, might appear that way though if you haven't seen them before...

Posted:I know what the trick is. I can do it one direction but is very difficult. Its like a hyper loop but you dont give it the same amount as power. Instead you isolate it, it does have the same concept as a hyper loop in that it has to make an odd number of beats before you can release it on the other side. I've always called it crossed isolation. I like this trick because amongst ravers that spin it trips them out. Isolation but better tongue2

Posted:to comment on the original discussion, I do believe an inversion with the chains touching would look like an isolated hyper-loop. I do inversions and these happen by accident often.

i tried a floor plane waist wrap a little while ago and deemed it impossible... i was clearly mistaken. my only option now is to track down any one who knows how to do it and lock them in a room until they teach it to me. tongue2

Posted:ok, so i have to credit pineapple pete and G with this move. it's called a mid-airwrap.

hold the poi from the head spin in same direction and airwrap. as you airwrap, let go of the poi and as the poi twist together and untwist, the handles will swing around towards you. catch the handles and pull out of the airwrap and keep spinning.

Posted:Yeah try the isolations behind the head and while you're at it also try the behind the head cateyes, though it only seems to work in one direction.

For the floorplane waistwrap, you have to go beyond the mental constraints of your body being static while the poi move around you. Instead imagine how the move should look like and then move your body accordingly to make the move possible, in fact this is a good suggestion to follow for all other poi tricks. Don't let your body get in the way of your poi.

Anyways, first learn 'the matrix' which is essentially a corkscrew under your back and if you keep exploring other floorplane spaces you'll eventually stumble upon the waistwrap.

Posted:this may be hard to follow (may be a wee bit drunk)

Alternating pentagram wall-plane:
-start your poi spinning split time reverse opposite with your right hand over left.
-begin the pentagram(five point star) pointing to the left.
-after your hands do their vertical floats, before your hands go back to the starting position, you should have your left hand over your right.
-at this point start a pentagram pointing to the right.
-switch back to a pentagram pointing to the left after the vertical floats.
- repeat.

this creates a crazy looking pattern that resembles a star of David with an x in the middle.

what do you think? does that make any sense?

Posted:I agree with Tankboy, in that it is the exact same configuration as split-same 1st degree inversion, but instead of rolling the nexus at the wrists, you move it farther down to the tethers.

Now to get really oldschool on yo ass: What most people call a hyperloop was once called a "maxiplus hyperloop" and hyperloop was used to describe a bunch of different tangles. What most people call an inversion is more specifically a split-same 1st degree inversion. There are plenty of 0 degree inversions (for instance, sustaining a buzzsaw is a sustained 0-degree inversion, woohoo). and plenty of 1st degree inversions. Not just in split-same but all 4 timing-direction modes as well.

I've been able to get a really sloppy second degree inversion (split-same) in floor plane.

Anyway, tangles and inversions use the same form, just a matter of the nexus being in the arms or the tethers.

Posted:random concept i found whilst mucking around with pendulum poi
i found you need to just be pinching the grips of your handles between the tips of your fingers to do this
so from your standard 3 beat weave after crossing over your hands you tuck the handle from the poi in your bottom hand in snug with your second poi's handle greating a little tangle
your now having the two poi continue to tangle beside you you then swap back across your body let them unwrap and your tangled poi will fly free
still working on getting a nice release on it

Posted:Played around with the pendulum-antispin CAP that drex had a blog on a while ago. Figured that it can easily be turned upside down, with an extension on top, and the hand doing the stalling on the up-petal instead of the down-petal at the end of the pattern.

And once you have the pattern down both ways, "right-side up" and "upside-down", all the 4 variations flow nicely into each other.

I turned it also 90 degrees to both directions, but don't think those looked quite as pretty. But they're possible.

Posted:had an idea today only actually pulled it off once but it is a spiral wrap with a tangle right before it starts wrapping your arms then right before it comes out all the way turn into hyperloop or orbital oh and you can also turn before it unwraps your hands i did it on accident while i was spinning walking home but also did something that looks pretty cool while doing a orbital i rapidly moved my arms from side to side and it looked pretty awesome
