Posted:I was wondering if anyone uses a single long string for POI. I'm a newbie *I think* and want to learn some new moves. I need some thoughts. I can also combo in some breakdance moves since I do that also. Thanks------------------I'm a FF fan. So what?Live by honor. Kill by stealth. Only the unseen survive.~peace~

Posted:I think you are referring to meteors. Not many people seem to do them as compared to poi, but there are a lot of cool moves that you can do with them that you can't do with regular poi.

Posted:I looked at the pictures of the meteors and i'm kinda confused how you would use em. Like you would use normal poi except there is a bit of string sorta attatching your hands to each other in the middle??

Naganootch -- Yes, that would be correct. You can also use them to do staff-like moves. If you twirl it right, it will straighten out like a staff.

Posted:oh, that's what meteors is...intresting.Some of my friends I dont see much said they had spinned and when I met them to spin with them they had a meteor instead. They where pretty good at it, onehand stuff was very good, especially the weave where I find difficult to get the chains apart on the half of it when my thumb is leading. Tried there stuff a bit, and changing direktions is harder and butterflies is harder, I'll stick to my two chains definitly..Thogh I cant se many advatages woth meteors, you should be able to do more extrodenary wraps i belive, but I aint much in to that so Ill shut up my babbling now instead.

Posted:Yea, the long chain there are many techniques to the long chain. Many complicated wraps and such. But it was developed to keep your opponent at a distance untill ready to strike with a knife or sword ro even a limb.
