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

i also learnt that my antispin weave (reverse poi) seems to want to work better if i point my hands upwards - the timing of the top crossovers make loads more sense in that arm position smile


Makes sense seeing as how antispin is sort of "upside-down" compared to a normal weave.

Got some long arm/WW BTB combinations going the other day at Spitz.

its not (well, not exactly wink )...



its called the 'notcoleman5' cos that's what rob called it after i showed him it smile



the name before that was 'wrists-not-tocuhing 5bt weave with a crossarm buzzsaw beat' and that was clearly a rubbish name.



i came across the move when the only inverted/inside stuff we knew of were buzzsaws and watermills - we didn't have any good ways of describing it yet smile



the crossarm buzzsaw beat in it led to lots of lovely things and the more fundamental version (the 'notcoleman3') caused lots of confusion when we first began discussing 'buzzsaw weaves'.





i will love rob forever for (not)naming a move after me biggrin hug

Posted:Ok, two today + transition.





1] Orbital around the head



Basic move: Weave (L->R side)



Wheel plane, as soon as you enter weave hyperloop in

buzzsaw you move it in the way of spin around the head,

back to buzzsaw and continue.



variant: Move it around the head clockwise.





2] 202 Throwing



Basic move: Thread the Needle (BW TTN)



It's cyclic move.



L: Catch and throw underneath right forearm (2B)

R: Pass to left hand (1B)

R: Catch and throw underneath left forearm (2B)

L: Pass to right hand (1B)





** Wheel plane transition (thanks Blue)



BW TTN > Reel(L->R) -> BW TTN -> Reel(R->L) -> BW TTN



Reel [(site)cross-over -> (site)cross-over]





enjoy it,



:R

Posted:I would appreciate some clarification on a move.

I think it is either 1.antispin weave, 2.inside weave, 3 inverted weave.

This move can be done asymmetrically as a 2 bt weave or symmetrically as a 3 bt weave.

2 Beat Version

Your right hand spins fwd constantly in the buzzsaw plane. Your left hand spins fwd in split time alternating from your left to right side planes but crosses UNDER your right arm. Crossing OVER feels basically like a 2 bt weave. Crossing UNDER feels like a Thread The Needle in the side plane (instead of the wall plane TTN)

Try keeping the left hand in the buzzsaw plane while the right hand weaves UNDER the left. If you can do both dominances strongly then you can do a 3 beat version (and most likely higher bts)

The trick is to focus on the poi that stays on the inside plane. Also, don't try this unless you feel comfortable with a wall plane split time TTN.

This can be done in reverse, same time, and isolated. The BF weave version of this move looks sick! Just watch out for tangles.
