Posted:Well, seeing as we are starting to take over the

"Offical HOP "I just learnt a new move" thread", I thought we should contain this bit just to jugglerisng and the throwing and dropping of balls, clubs, rings and other miscellaneous juggling props.

Today I mothered learning 441.

I had a few throws of 531 but only 1 catch. I think my 5 is too high.

Note for the mods: I DEMAND on behalf of the jugglers on this site, as has been done with the aforementioned "Poi moves thread", that this one is made a sticky thread.

Otherwise its just favouritism really....

Posted:Above the head juggling rocks! (eventually)

423 is pretty solid. As is two in one hand - both hands.
Mills mess is coming...
I have qualified 531 (damn nice) and 4 balls.
Working on 441, shower and box but the 1 throws are tricky.

Any other ideas for above the head juggling?

Posted:i got 7 catches of 5 ball above the head the other day lol. first try too. hehe what a fluke.



if you want a challenge a good three ball pattern for above the head is boston mess. i actually get it to work for a few cycles from time to time smile

Posted:WOO HOO! I just got a trick I've been working on since Play!

It's a way to change spiral directions (not mills mess) involving a high throw and a same-side throw and catch under the arm.

Posted:534 - 5 crossing double, 3 self and 4 ultimate pass. 4's are ultimate passes from both hands.

Therefore, 633 would be 6 (triple straight pass) 33 (selfs).

No idea when I'll be back in London frown smile

I realised the other day my clubs have come along such a long way since I left London. I almost caught a 3c pirouette the other day. My hands weren't there to meet them tho frown Had a nice long run of 5c triples last thursday, maybe 25 catches or so??

Johnny - play with the 6c ultimate idea - throw any 4b siteswap and remember that all passes are 4's. Anything aobve a 4 crosses to other person (so 5 is crossing double, 6 is straight triple etc) and 1,2 and 3 are all selfs.

Posted:After not posting anything new for bloody ages, I have a new trick!

I managed several times to flash backcross doubles out of, and back into a 3club cascade today! Felt so good.

I also managed 37 catches of 6b today (new PB). I rarely practice it, but today it seemed easy.

I've been getting 3b up piros a lot recently. Managed to catch it once with clubs but it's still looking pretty dicey.

Managed to pick up a dropped club in 7c doubles (passing) the other day. 9c is looking much better too smile
