Posted:When practising with a friend we found if you start with the reverse butterfly in front of you and slowly move it over you head until you hands are above you head you can keep the butterfly going there and it looks like both Poi are travelling in the same direction like a helicopter - quite cool. Starting from the normal butterfly is a little trickier but you can use the move to switch from normal to reverse butterfly and vice versa which is handy.

Posted:Tis easier to get up in a forward butterfly by threading the needle up. I don't understand how you can use this move to go from forward to reverse butterfly though?

I live in a world of infinite possibilities.

Posted:Take forward BF downward to horizontal plane and then switch it upward to reverse above the head?

Vertical TTN just looks cool, no matter how you slice it

What hits the fan is not evenly distributed.
