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

well, i got a sorta not-proper-5-beatish-5-beat-fountain-like-thingy. and i can almost do a 6 beat weave. and i got one side of a hyperloopy airwrappy thing. not sure which. uhh, and i've tried 'dancing' a bit more with my poi. that hurts, not only when you stuff up, but the next day, too.



hmmm, is this what I hope it is? I logged on today to find out the name for what I just got down:
5 beat (fwd) weave fountain into 5 beat (rvs) weave fountain into 5 beat (fwd) weave, etc. etc.
so what is the "official" name for it then? ( a fountain is 6(?) beats, so be it a "10 beat fountain" or only 8 ? )

Posted:yeah I'd go with the 5bt as each individual move is 5bts. I can keep the poi weaving in one place and constantly turn my body but it doesn't make it infinate beats....or does it?! eek umm

there is no windmill in a fountain.

so the answer to your question is 'no'.

a fountain with all the extra wrist twists does have 4bts infront of your face as the poi come from behind your left shoulder - since your wrists are twisted they need need to unwrap and wrap up again before they go behind your right shoulder. smile

Posted:Yay i just had a learning spurt biggrin I final got the hang of the wrapped butterfly without walking round in circles.

Plus i got the hang of just doing a reverse buzzsaw hyperloop.

Then i also learnt the 5bt revere weave and the 4bt windmill to top it all.

Not bad for one night. I dont like the way these spurts are spaced weeks apart tho. Anyone else experience this phenamina?

Zool down? I meant cool down.
