Posted:Well here I am a week before I buy my new double staves dunno what to do! Its intense...

The only thing I am unsure of is when I will light them up. I need to be totally prepared as I am quite paranoid at the moment although I can dance with them.

I hope to light them up by the time I go to Sheffield so watch out the pixies comming and shes got three staves now.

Love, Drome

Posted:Doubles are lover-ly!!! Made some on the weekend, thanks to the aid of some nice peeps.

They are really fun, although I have to work on some transitions, & I am not up for lighting them just yet.

dancey-dancy-doubles for a pixie-girl...


It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Posted:Unfortunately I never got the time to concentrate on my doubles. Summer was too short, and there was too much single staff and poi stuff to work on

So, my beautiful doubles shall be passed on to some deserving pixie with the knowledge they shall be spun as they should be

Posted:Doubles are !!
Made myself a pair a couple of weeks ago. I've had very little time to play recently (shitty weather , only about an hour of light left after work ), but every time I've gone out to play, my doubles have lept straight into my hands!
Totally agree with Dom, summer was waaay too short, but don't give up on the doubles! Bit confusing at first, but if you've got the basics with single staff, everything seems to come quite quickly.

If you're not confused, you're not thinking about things hard enough.

Posted:I must point out that doubles are rather a different discipline in themsleves although you do most staff moves and some poi moves with them...

So exited!

Much love and keep spinning them doubles people,

Posted:I did say "if you've got the basics with single staff..."
Or do you feel the basic spins are different between single and double staff?

Posted:NIce one! Lit my new doubles for the first time a week ago - so much fun. Yeah, watch when you light them for the first time - there's a lot of fire rushing towards your hands if you keep still for too long! good luck.

Posted:Well Jephyre I find that the basics are the same but once you begin to treat things as objects (as lovely Glass keeps reminding me; FANKS LUV! ) I find that most of the things I personally do with the doubles arent related to the staff I learned... Directly that is... I tend to use quite a lot of Poi based moves bacause they come quite naturally to me...

Mineiro unfortunately the money situation has gone down suddenly unexpectedly and I will be coming down (cross your fingers) within two weeks, dont know if you will be down there but if you are we should meet up and have a twirl.

I am humble pupil I am!

Much love,
Drome

Dom when can we make the given exchange?!?!?!?!
