Posted:um... i can kinda do a one handed corkscrew, and kinda do a simple weave, i think (hey, leeave me alone, i only had these things for a week), but i cant keep the chains at 180 degrees to each other, they always end up at about 45 apart....any suggestions on keeping them further apart... i think it may have something to do with moving slower, but i dont really know...
