I was wondering what moves feel the best for all of you to do. It seems with me some moves just feel "right". For me that move is the quadruple corkscrew with turns. I love turning it to the right 180 degrees and twisting my body with the poi then letting it complete the bottom rotation then turning to the left 360 degrees. It just feels so awesome to do that combo. There is also this w/w combo I do that just flows so nicley but I couldn't describe it technically so I'm not even gonna try.

Peace, Love, Circles

although a 5 beat behing the back full 360 turns is also a dream to do... if your sholders can hold up, and its a great show off trick..

I really like the outside 3 beat weave. It might be a new trick, forwards, it goes right hand over left hand and left hand over right hand. 3 beat weave.

dont make peoples heads turn, give them whiplash.

How is that any different from a normal 3 beat weave?

You do it outside. Feels much better than indoors.

My favorite is probably stalling left poi in a forward butterfly and bursting out in a super fast weave-fountain thing. What u like to do change from day to day tho.

Yep, the carry of a front waistwrap is lush.
For me my back of the hand catches with continued movement feel beautiful when I pull them off just right.

A 'fountain' yeah?

I still like turning btb waist wrap - 'cos I still remember putting holes in my fingers learning it! ubbrollsmile

But er, 'turning head wrap' feels good too...

Of course, the best move of all has to be the slick one you just did by accident that opens up unforeseen possibilities - yeah cool

i agree mico... the one that supprises you and shows you new options is definatly the best feelintrick... and the most exciting and the most frustrating....

smile

its all about the fun fun fun fun and more fun...
