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:I've achieved nothing except realising my antispin flowers are beyond terrible and getting the last isolation in the isolated weave!

Inversions are still waaaaayyyyy to complicated for me to understand (I can do a barrel roll I think, but that's it), and i don't know enough things to do in atoms, so I'm just gonna mess around with anti spin and makng everything far smoother.


Spin, bounce, be one with the world, because it is yours to enjoy...

Posted:since my last confession:

all the crossed/normal double neckwraps. (i only knew forward/crossed well before)

the real 5 beat double bicep wraps. (only front, sorry)
-- could this be thru-wrapped with much longer poi??

using mtbeer's spiralling TTN in butterfly weaves. (makes me think of silly possibilities like Thread The Tangle)

just a minute ago:

some crappy turning WW antispin stuff that i don't quite understand.

i ran into a problem though...i think my *chest* is too big and it's hard to get a decent length poi without hitting it
oooh the tribulations of life-why why must i be cursed with such a chest wink

A CURSE?

Surely not!! wink

I know several spinners with the same problem... They've learned to use it to their advantage, though. And rather well, I might add...


Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water.

The Guide is definitive. Reality is frequently inaccurate.

rawr! get those puppies locked down or they just get in the way! just make sure it's not too sexy or you won't get much poi practicing done. wink

oh, and i finally kind of accidentally learned the infinite hyperloop principles... you just pull straight toward the hands, back and forth??! i had been trying mostly isolation-ish movements to keep them going, which didn't work very well at all! "pull toward the hands" was really all the trick it took. haha. now to clean it up i guess?

Posted:Anti spun fountains, so poi are traveling clockwise in my hands, but my hands are traveling counter clockwise in a big foutnain pattern .the fountain goes buzzsaw, chase sun ther side buzzzsaw and weave Thru my legs, to buzzsaw, to chase sun. I can do this on both sides of my body and its pretty fun.

front and behind weave wall plane, waistwrapped, poi stay in front of body and hands are reaching as far as they can. Can do forwards an reversed and a turning version that uses both.

shower with pass btb rocks - thrust those hips out!

i spent about 5 minutes babbling on about planes to bams and smallboy before trying something new:

inside weave in the rear wallplane is close now.

but i reckon inside-inside weave will take another couple of hours yet...

Posted:im sure you can allready do them and have been for ages, but spin in wheel plane, do a weave, spinning forewards, cross your right arm behind your back , throw the right poi so that the head hovers just over your shoulder next to your ear, the other end flips over and you catch it back into a weave, then do the same with your left arm. ive been trying to do it continous but i cant...
they work in wall plane too, except you can make the end that is hovering land on your forehead so you look a bit like a seal...
