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:Hmm...

4 beat parallel weave I think and
Isolated Fountain. biggrin bounce needs cleaning up now.

Also trying isolated Behind the back weave but I think I'm gonna do myself some damage. Not being the most flexible person in the world!

Posted:I GOT THE 5BT!!!! OH SWEET MOTHER OF CHRIST I FINALLY GOT IT!!!!!

After literally 4 months of trying I finally have it. I could almost cry with the sheer joy of it all. It's not perfect yet, but I can do it after a little trying. It's great. Thanks to everyone for their great advice, and also to Malcom for his wicked new animation which helped loads.

Oh and I finally bothered to learn TTN. Why not, eh? It's been a good day biggrin Thanks to the randomer who taught it me, hope you find your bike mate frown And that you get the 5bt yourself!

Posted:increasingly complicated sets of carries- basicly do a waistwrap, but carry back the other way, then carry again, and see how far long a chain of carries you can do. about 4, at the moment, before getting confused. some are *sweet*. and all of them drop into waistwraps whenever you want...

Posted:i learnt forward btb 5beat about half an hour ago.
i love it when you try a move for the first time expecting it to be really tricky, then discover you can just do it.

i like poi. it is easier than juggling smile

I don't know the "official" name of it but I believe it is 2 beat low windmill with under the arm-pit and over the shoulder transition. That's poi goes back with under the arm-pit and over the shoulder.

P.S: Thanks to cherry from Portland for cueing me for this move smile

Posted:After much time spent with oli over the summer some of his tangling techniques have rubbed off on me, much like the UV dye on his yellow poi wink

I can now 'oli' in fowards tangle pretty comfortably and i can get that tangle "outside, inside, opposite outside, inside, repeat" pretty stable for quite a while and add some tangled turns into the mix as well.

Cheer oli

Posted:Hi, I'm new. I finnally got 5bt weave, so I though I might treat myself by signin up here :P. I also got 4/5 beat helicopter I think... erm... horizontal windmill... whatever it's called... into spin.

I've only been doin it for about 3 months, or less, and I'm the only one in my club to have gotten 5bt weave. Also, I'm well on my way to btb, which for a long time I thought impossible. Just keep hittin myself in the face biggrin WAGHAGH.

If someone could offer to help me by givin me new tricks to learn, and offerin to explain them, I'd appreciate it, because I seem to be a bit behind on this site... I mean... what's butterfly weave?! I can do what I think is the real thread the needle, but... what is the real one!? I can do the one described by the site...

anyway.

Thanks guys!

Caman.

Posted:Fountains are beautiful with fire. Get comfortable with them from all sides then rotate the plane to get a corkscrew. Now that you have the 5bt, add those same wrist wraps to the corkscrew and you will have some sweet moves you can chain together.
