Posted:You got it man. Both poi have to be in either forward swing or reverse swing, whereas the corkscrew has to have 1 poi in reverse and the other in forward.

Posted:it's the same direction either forward or reverse for the corckscrew and opposite for the horizontle mexican wave. So NightShade1, you are right, Lamar, think harder about it and you'll see why you're wrong.(but I think you accedently misposted, and you weren't trying to say it like that)Everythings well!Eric

Its about talent, not make up or costumes.

Posted:Actually Myst if you stop to think about what Lamar was saying from his perspective then you'll realize he is just as correct as you are. When in front of you one is going in a reverse and in order to follow directly after the other is going in a foward spin. Where if you were to turn to your left or right as in your thinking they would indeed be going the same direction.
