Posted:start out doing a reverse weave when your crossing hands crossest the other one :/...cross your chains, strings, whatever as if you were doing a normal hyperloop. instead of rossing all the way over to your other side make the poi go between your arms then move your hands away from each other. as your hands get farther away the smaller and faster the loops gets. cool lookin, try it.

i like pie

Posted:that's what we call a tangled buzzsaw or buzzsaw airwrap or buzzsaw hyperloop. but hyperbuzzsaw is cool too

its quite a bit easier to go into this with your hands lined up horizontally rather than the normal way of hyperlooping with hands lined up vertically.
tangle with your hands at 3 and 9 on a clock face rather than at 6 and 12.
but if you can do it from a normal hyperloop orientation and then back out it looks lovely.

Posted:Cole, don't know if you tried this but at the EJC Richee was doing some cool tangled buzzsaw variations. Like bouncing them back to the side them tangled on and turning. I thought they were cool. Drew will yabber on about them not being valid as the timing was ncesarily off kilter, but he's a real nerd like that

Posted:i didn't say not valid, just that they're off time, so they're not for me,
but it is one way of keeping hyperloops going
and a pretty cool idea

Posted:moohaahaa comes back out the same side to untangle sometimes...
as far as i understood, if you wanted to come out and turn you just had to make sure you exited on an odd beat (not that i can do it yet apparently bluecat can though )?

so what does off time mean here dudes?
can you not do this with clean timing?
is it just closer to quarter time? wouldn't that make them *really* bouncy?
does it mean something else?

i know i should have been there and if i hadn't 'made a mistake' i would have met richee myself and seen all this stuff and wouldn't need you to explain but i already promised to go next year and i don't get this lingo ('timing off kilter'?).

Posted:yep. but i cheat, its a 3/4 turn and on a technicality it unwraps for 1/2 a beat, you just don't see it because of the speed of the turn.

Posted:hey i only made one mistake (recently ) - not going to the ejc.
don't burn me, burn my source of misinformation.

as you can see, i have no qualms about giving away my sources.
i already gave bambam the chocolate source and if anyone wants some tomato source i have a couple bottles sitting next to me right now.
