Posted:I don't know whether anyone has ever tried this (i did a search but didn't find anything).The other day i kinf flicked my string/wire/chain when doing a really slow backwards weave. This made the afore mentioned string flick all the way around the poi which i then caught and started doing a forwards weave. I can do it with both hands (not really well) but do other people do this.....CheersAPB

Posted:Its not really juggling, its more getting the poi to stay exactly where it is whilst the rope spins around it. Its kinda hard to explain.Eh.CheersAPB

Posted:I don't think so phunky.What i do is 1. break from the backwards weave, so you have a poi on either side of your body.2. As the poi are coming up in front of you flick the strings back towards the ground. This should make the string flip all the way around the poi (which stay relatively still, but could still move) and the land back in your hands.3. Instead of the poi passing back over you shoulder as they normally would just going backwards, step 2 should make the poi begin to drop infront of you, this means that when you catch them they should go back down and you can start to do forwards weave.I hope this helped explain things a little betterCheersAPB

Posted:now you just need to learn how to throw the poi so that the chain stays strait and the poi doesn't rotate, then you can pass it to someone!

we eat and we drink and we smoke and we try!

Posted:santanatwo - you can easily do that with no handle on the poi - i tried to get em spinning and it is harder when there is no handle.
