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

LOL @ Flid

btb wallplane tangles.

T wave


with both poi going clockwise in front of me split time, when you put both behind your back you can easily tangle strings if they stay split time. The strings hit and you throw the whole tangle in frotn of your body on the rt, hand side, really reachy with left hand. It will untangle in front of you. TRy split time in frotn of you behind and then overhead in order.

Posted:Whoa! Long thread!! ubbrollsmile
I been having much fun this morning with a 3bt counter-time (is that where the poi spin in opposite directions?) weave! Then I dropped my poi off the balcony! Whoops! frown
Also just kinda managed an under the legs and around the back weave type thingy.
Still can't get reels though! redface

Posted:If the poi are spinning in opposite directions sounds like you're talking about a butterfly weave.

Got my first antispin flowers and BTB wallplane tangles where the tangle then untangles in the front wall plane rather than BTB. Which looks nifty in waist wraps.

Productive day, methinks!

Posted:Hmmm. Productive spin to Ozzy biggrin

I think I have antispin flowers down. bounce

I can move into and out of them which was lacking before.

Most combos I can do without the look of panic combined with shear concentration that I had when I first tried them. ubblol

Turning antspin flowers are still beyond me but I can do it with one hand so far.

I think I'm also closer to 5 beat isolated weave. But not really sure. I think I understand what is ment by this now

Also been playing with random plane isolations. Really fun and silly! ubbloco

Posted:Alack and alas, I have moved forward little since my last post (about 3 weeks ago?), what with finally realising it's time to start doing some uni work.

I have now hooked up with the Sydney Uni Circus Society, SURCAS, which will hopefully be fruitful.

The few bits I've picked up in the last three weeks have been:

neck wraps
3bt btb reverse weave
the reverse of a weird wraps inside ttn weavy thing which I do but don't know what it is.

I've also figured out the hand motions for the forward 3bt btb weave but can't do it without contact 'twixt my shoulder and the poi. Something to work on, hey?

Posted:I have nearly got the 4 beat windmill down bounce and I have the bruises on my ribs (only the right as havn't maneged to get the anticlockwise going yet) to proove that I havn't quite made it..yet!

Also, not doing neck wraps anymore, they leave funny scars when they go wrong, tehe. Think I read another thread about scars, maybe should go and have a looksey in there

Posted:hyperloop snakes look cool but I'll let Spiralx describe it- clever bugger smile

As far as poi in your mouth- heisenbergs don't work to well (sadly) but its nearly possible to get split time chase in your mouth... though its not recommended with 6 month 'gone everywhere been dropped in everything' poi handles... I had the taste in my mouth all evening.. YUCK! footinmouth

yes indeed... just remember that antispin is easier wallplaned than sideplaned.. that should help you learn the other direction and the turns.. wink

A hyperloop if you're turning. If you're doing it in front of you there's no need to turn, get keep your hands still once they've tangled and they should pop undone on their own - that's an airwrap.

Posted:been doing some nice 2 handed wibbling, it's got a lovely rhythm to it, Like when you see someone with 2 devilsticks doing double propellors. But with wibbles the poi just tick tock direction and bounce high and low.

Been mixing in some behind the back throws and tossing dibbles to opposite hands, all of which really messes with my head and could definitely be called "2 softClub juggling" wink
