Posted:This is a combonation of four tricks thrown together to make a circle. You do one rotation of each move and go on to the next one.First you do a corkscrew on your right with the poi spinning clockwise. Then you do a three point weave with your arms a little higher than usual. Then you do a corkscrew on your left with the poi spinning counterclockwise. Finally you do a reversed three point weave a little lower than usual.Keep repeating this sequence and move your arms in a circle. This is the most technical move I know and it will probably take a while to figure out. --Juggles

Happy spinning everone!

Posted:Sounds fun.. a bit like a fountain. Do you do a corkscrew in a fountain? I thought it was just front weave to reverse weave to windmill back to forward weave...Matt------------------I dreamt that I ate a 10 pound marshmellow and then when I woke up, my pillow was gone!

Posted:Sprinkler....weave=> corkscrew=> rev. weave(then back again)Fountain....weave=> windmill=> rev.weave(Then back again, and btw. yes, a windmill is essentially a vertical corkscrew)Circle....corkscrew=> weave=> rev. corkscrew(then go back again)The circle he is proposing has the order in reverse. Instead of beginning at the side with a weave, you begin at the side with a corkscrew and do the weave in front of you then the corkscrew, then back again, changing levels. Like doing a fountain inside out!

Posted:Circle: Corkscrew, weave, rev. corkscrew, rev. weave, then back.The difficult part about this trick is that every time you switch tricks, you have to "bend" the momentum of the poi. Whereas with the foutain, the poi is constantly spinning on the same plane.------------------Happy spinning everone!
