Posted:After seeing the COL vids there was only one guy (apologies for forgetting ya name) doing some throws. After a poi session last night I dreamt up loads of poss throws which should flow really well. Just wondering how many peeps actually use these? How about putting together a listing of throws?N:-)~

We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold.

Posted:There's been some discussion on this. Try doing a search in the Poi Moves section for throw, release or anything similar.I've got some poi made from rope, tied into a Monkey knot at each end to serve as a weight or handle, making it possible to throw and catch each either end.Also throws are very nice with flags, as they move a bit slower.

Posted:Cassandra - have you made your own set yet?I've a spare set of flags (had some left over material), a lot smaller than mine (which are perfect if you're 2 metres tall!). Maybe I'll post them over

Posted:Yeah bassman's throws are pretty freakin cool! It looks like the handles are floating through the air.I like working with throws but can only do one at a time and the other does nothing really. Also try looking for aerial poi too - kind of a throw)

Posted:I'm really good at throws, especially when using poi.It normally happens when I place the sacred Staffs down reverently, gingerly pick up the b*stard poi, give myself a blood nose and throw the damn things up a tree!Or down a drain...or into traffic...or at the ambulance driver...
