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:Starting BTB weave backwards, cud only get into it from forwards BTB until something clicked! yey for clickiness biggrin



Also, weird wrappy thing around body exiting in hyperloop (yes I suck at explaining) and more importantly, weave hyperloops under the arm insted of over and hyperloops BTB and horizotnal hyperloops (arms vertical, poi horizontal) too, all of which were pretty easy and I don't understand why I've never done them before confused ah well better late than never smile



Some nice whip catch variations and also a weird way of exiting normal hyperloops, on each odd beat you can literally throw the poi out really clean by throwing the handle downwards. I got it flying to about 10 feet away from me on my right at the mo but it's all in vain cuz I'm trying to make it go upwards!! Ah well, will come in time, it's in there somewhere smile weavesmiley

I got all excited cuz I saw that Bluecat was the last post in "I learned a new move" of the POI MOVES section and I was all like....

"Ohhhh Shizzle, this one's gonna be good." biggrin

But then... Bam. Nothing. frown

Thread Hijack, inappropriate placement, there's NO way juggling belongs HERE. At least put it in staff. Most people throw their staves at least where as MOST don't throw their poi. Most. I said most. I didn't say all. Read it again. Most. I know. You can throw poi. I saw Glass doing 3 poi at EJC. You win. OK. Go away now. tongue


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:haha... we've got ucof and bams now! juggling is taking over.... juggle



while i've been on holiday i've cleaned up most of my basics, got a better 531, can just about do 456123456 (sometimes) have got more consistent with 5 balls although still haven't got 50 bloody catches but i get over 20 a lot... and i've been practicing 3 in one hand on both sides in an attempt to get more than a 6 ball flash. it's gonna take a while though! umm



seeing as i haven't posted in this thread for a while, over the summer i've also learnt some nice contact doubles from ben-j-men, biggrin been playing with contact poi (although am still workin on consistency) and learnt to plate spin thanks to lolli. smile there's lots of other stuff i've learn't as well but can't remember. thanks to coleman, dsads and uber seal for all the juggling tips + anyone else that i've been jammin with for the inspiration... hug to y'all!



*walks up to collect award for the most long winded new moves post of the week* rolleyes



edit: i've just read what blue cat and cole have been up to. i'm so gonna have to make it to brizzol now...

Vertical propellors still causing much frustration, but got 7-8 rotations now before a) it hits me in the face/head/stomach/leg/boob, b) it flies across the park c) it crashes into the ground, forcefully showing me that's where it truly belongs. B*stard.


there's nothing quite as fulfilling as a tasty airwrap

Airwraps... I can do them almost.

They've been eluding me for far too long.

Posted:40 times? That'd be weave then wouldn't it? And... umm... ubblol

And while I'm here the last things I learnt were things I really should've been able to do years ago - horizontal buzzsaw and that little mini horizontal corkscrew thing. Does it have a name? And can you do it in the normal buzzsaw plane? Oh, and almost got horizontal buzzsaw weave.

Inverted butterflies, isolated watermill, higher beat watermills (3 beats ok, 4 beats not so good), airwrap entries and exits into watermill. I'm sure there's got to be some kind of inverted TTN as well.
