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:Here's a fun one for you to try.

Get the poi spinning opposite directions in start position (left forward, right backward) with a legwrap.

Next, when the poi come to the top, switch your hands and just cross in the regular figure 8 pattern. This seriously does not feel like it should work, but the they don't hit each other as they cross.

Just something that I stumbled across one day.
The reverse of this trick (left backwards, right forwards) feels even wierder because you have to cross as they reach the bottom.

Posted:maybe this belongs under "things i left behind", but for some reason i never thought of non-split-time same-arm butterfly wraps. i mean i do them on legs, necks, "etc" all the time, but one-arm? crazy. i tried them one-handed and it worked for a second, but i'm not trying that on fire any time soon. lol.

They require some nifty plane control to get them to wrap without tangling, that's for sure. And having the right length of poi definitely helps!

Posted:yay! I just did a double spiral wrist wrap with fire for the first time! And an under the arm through wrap too!

It was hard to get my brain to allow me to actuallly wrap that fire around my hands, but once I did it it was fine.

Very happy and stinky now...

Posted:I double last post query aswell btw..



Anyways.



I feel proud beacuse I just entered the 4beat weave today (Partially the reason it was possible now and not later was a part from Nicks video. THANKS), and pretty much 'mastered' the timing and the plane... Well... almost. Still gotta get it elegant. I also started a little with testing out 5 beat. Timing is still off tho.



Other then that, i'm trying to come up with patterns that works for spinning one poi Forward and the other backwards. Which can give a few interesting results and variations. However the cross point is extreamly dependant on timing, or not at all. But I think the former looks better if done correctly =)



Also just cracked turning with Buzzaws. Seriously I DO not know why I did not practice buzzaws earlier.



Last but not least... Trying to isolate stuff in different places in the spinning... Been trying to break in the middle of crossing in a 3 or 4 beat weave to make an isolation that goes over to do the normal weaving again... But breaking it at the crosspoint is difficult since you have such immense momentum going towards the other side of your body.



Cheers

immense momentum? Slow down and it'll be far far easier. It's almost exactly the same forces as doing iso buzzsaws ie very little smile Infact you can practice by doing iso buzzsaws and then trying to cross arms and keep the isolation going.

Hope that helps wave
