Posted:Could use some help here...

I've been working each arm individually and can get my poi moving right if my thumbs are up. When I turn my thumbs down, which I know I must in order to join the two comfortably, I completely lose the ability to bring the poi up to the higher plane.

Anyone who's got this have a tip for me in this step of corkscrew evolution?

Posted:the best thing I can say is start with doign a corkscrew with one hand btb... kinda to the rear side a bit.. and then on top of that.. you can take those motions and learn them in front of you.. (the way the hands spin..) because doing the btb cork hands don't necessarily work out the same.. not that the motion is not the same its a matter of keeping and conrtolling the cirlce that is differnt.. but all the same, it can be pracitced up front..

sorry I'm not much help still..
