Erm, I think this is what you mean...Do a normal butterfly and then lift it so your arms are about 45 degrees, maybe higher, but not vertical. Speed the spins up a bit and you get a kind of Atom shape in the air - two inter-locking 0'sSorry if this is wrong.

I've been told that when I go from a norma butterfy to an overhead butterflys my poi take on an atom-like configuration. I guess I need more practise to get them straight

I think it's where you do a normal butterfly, and while doing that, push your arms out and then back in at a rhythm. (Depends on the speed).

The best way to make an atom over your head is spin the poi making an "x" split-time. Not quite a butterfly, because you're not making it perfect. Then raise your arms up over your head. Spin REALLY REALLY FAST and people will say "WOW, UR GOOD!"

the only way i can see you getting such a patern is to do 360 spins floating between forwards and reverse weaves but altering the angle in which they are flowing droping in a low corkscrew too for that horizontal one, it can be done... just spin around and around and see how it goes...The overhead butterfly one is like a scifi logo...
