Posted:I know I havent posted on here in a LONG time but I recently finished making a video that captures the best glowstringers in San Antonio Texas. We are very poi oriented in our glowstringing so I thought that I may share this video with the HOP community because this site helped me out a long time ago when I began stringing.

Well,This vid was filmed a while back during the summer but I finally finished editing everything. I think it came out really nice, and I think it was well worth the wait. I wanna thank all my stringers friends and all who have inspired me to string, this vid is for yall

The song is Planet Funk - Chase the Sun

Enjoy....I hope this video sparks new ideas..

Glowsticks come with a free bit of string. First of all, quality video, seriously. And secondly, this string you talk about, where I buy glowsticks theres no string included, so what am I looking for if I go buy it seperatly? Just plain white string you find in roles or what?

Posted:Sorry for my belated response but I only recently got to view this video.

Obvious and absoulute props.

I KNEW there were glow kids out there pushing the envelope and just didn't know where to find them. I'm very glad the Eurocrowd got to see this because I don't think US style glow sticking makes it out there as much as it should.

What are you guys calling that 'contact glowstick' stuff where you're going around your neck. Those aren't 'tracers'? Because I thought tracers were with one glowstick out of a wrap like around one's knee or something...

Thank you very much for sharing and please do keep us firekids in the glowstick loop as much as you can.

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:dude.. wow!!!

that was seriously amazing. i'd never heard the term glow stringing, but i guessed it would be same as poi but with glowsticks(dur )

but from the very first move bomb made, till then end of it, I was enthralled, sooo amazing, so well put together, and a serious amount of inspiration and new ideas are swirling throu my tired head. Just hope i dont go an try to pass flaming poi around my neck .

Biggest congratulations ever.

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Posted:AY, DIOS MIO!!

I have NEVER seen glowstick poi like that!!!! Most of the glowstringers I've seen around here either suck horribly (can't even do a 3 BT weave properly), or they're used to spinning fire/beamers/heavy stuff, so when you see them spin glowsticks, they're quite good spinners, but they can't do all the cool "tracer" moves and ridiculously fast consecutive wraps. They spin like they would spin fire.

Believe me Custom Bug, at least around here, there are quite a few "ravers" who don't know the first thing about poi, they just think it's cool to wave glowsticks around on really long strings while screwed out of their minds on drugs. Alotta these kids have never even seen fire poi. I wish we had tons of people doing that kind of stuff around here, so I'd have folks to study and learn from!

That video is amazing, I had no idea some of that stuff was even possible. Hats off to Shok and his crew. I live in Dallas, so if I ever come down to San Antonio for a party, I'll keep an eye out for you guys!

Posted:actually GSC changed it so you don't have to have a gazillion posts to get the stuff.. and I think this was for TT1 as well yeah?

and the chicago vids don't have shite on the TT2..

If you want some of the chicago vids, I suggest going by GSC and getting some of the specifc person vids.. like wes's practice (2-21-03), Kael; and scooch (both 12-28-03) and wil (2-15-04) are infinitely better then those.. they each of some cool lead ups to the TT2 stuff..

Posted:they don't have them on GSC? I rememeber one night arguing with Wes (mixinluv2u) and he said all the GSC stuff was open to everyone all you had to do was sign up.. and I thought.. I thought Kael had his duowrap video up on there..

hit me up on an im and I'll send you the Kael vid.. all it has are the duo/multiwraps.. which are cool for those that prefer the longer variety strings..
