Tell us all about it! We love hearing about our fellow poiers/staffies/misc. toyers succeeding with new things biggrin

It's just hard to keep up with it all sometimes, so if we keep it together you'll be certain to get a little feedback.



here a pat on the back in advance from me

Posted:Yeah I didn't say they were good or reliable yet tho ubbangel BTB is just the same and infront when you do them from weave. Throw them behind from infont then just put your hands where BTB weave is. Or behind your head like windmill.

I can't get those whip tosses to work tho at all....grrr.....except by accident of course!
