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:been awhile posting here but...

through-the-leg spinning, btb ttn, btb bf's in side planes & turning, buzzsaw turns, antispin buzzsaw turns, a dodgy antispin flower, buzzsaw turning to isolated crossed buzzsaw & back.

FINALLY got isolations clean with both hands, both directions, any time, any plane, both hands at once. isolated buzzsaw, a shifty isolated weave. isolated bf, isolated buzzsaw bf, turning an isolated buzzsaw bf - maybe better described as bf in wheel plane.

oooh can stall almost perfectly now at any speed.

w00t!

starting to make progress with contact staff!

w00t! again!

Posted:i just figured this out tonight.. been working on it for a while tho.. dont know if there is a fancy shmancy name for this move, but ill try and explain it..

regular ttn, then stall (for instance) right over left poi, while left keeps spinning.. then pull left out from underneath right arm so arms are not crossed.. then, still spinning left poi, put it over right arm(still stalled) and under the right hand holding poi.. its all supposed to be a continuous move.. (for those of you whove seen spinning in paris, glass does this at one point in the 1+2 video)

but this he doesnt do... in that position, wrap spinning left poi around right elbow, making it spin the other way, and then untangle your arms the same way you tangled them, stall the right one again over left arm, and wrap left poi around right elbow again (this time from the bottom) to get it to spin inwards again for regular butterfly.. from here you can do the whole thing over again!!

its all supposed to be one smooth movement.. that im still working on, but i have the basics down, and the first half is all smooth with no extra spins after the first stall.

Posted:3 and 4 beat BTB wall plane weaves. And maybe 5, but boy did myself and YT confuse ourselves last night trying to work out whether or not we had it ubblol



And I also worked out exactly where each poi goes during butterfly hyperloops. So now I've got every side and direction from forwards and am getting there on reverse smile

Posted:Reverse butterfly hyperloops, and using a bottom entry and when to use a top entry to bf hyperloops. I can turn most directions using most types now.



Also just about starting to get split-time BF airwraps. They're messy, but I can now enter and exit them at last.

Posted:Not so much a new move per se, but I had a lovely conceptual breakthrough last night that will help with my hyperloops no end. So I've managed to get my planes when exiting a lot cleaner - I can properly transition from left side wall plane buzzsaw to right hand side wall plane buzzsaw via BF hyperloops nice in all directions and transitions now.
