Posted:Out of interest, do you lads and lasses make your own staffs? Or do you buy them online somewhere?



Mines from a local circus ship, was around 30, comes up to my eye. I added a little more weight to the ends, and I am thinking I needed to replace the grip - as the strange leather material is a bit crumbly and pants.



But all the staffs I see seem to have cushion grip around about 3/4s if the staff, where as my grip only seems to over about 20cms in the middle. tongue



Oh, totally got the Conveyor Belt to Jesus transition, so I'm happy.

Got the SneS, bit wobbly at the halo roll. (Read: very wobbly)

And Fishtails are still a mystery to me.



But I'm slowly getting there... just need to practice more.

Posted:Confound these fishtails!!! ubblol



I'm still going with the glue-idea.



On a brighter note, I got the SneS.

I'm slow, I know.

That's the basics nailed, with the addition of the Jesus.

Time to start learning the real stuff I guess!

Posted:man i aint been in here a while it seems.......

for the first time in weeks i went out for a play last night and came up with a little matrix / conveyor variation:

Matrix - come under right armpit, put hands together to wrap elbows (underside) as it comes around onto left, then onto right elbow (elbow, elbow transfer) turn so it falls onto your neck, either into continuous turning elbow things........ or back to matrix...... or wherever the flow takes you......

Tiz nice and has made me want to play lots again

Splendidness....

Good to hear it...

Meg visited here recently and I discovered, to my horror, that instead of a full Steve, as I'd thought I'd learned, I was actually doing a bad half-Steve.

After much mocking, she finally showed me both ways.

smile

But I still can't do it.

I trust her to whip you into shape at Uberparis...

Don't worry about the mocking either, it's either that or pulling on your pigtails...

Posted:heres what i got so far:

from nunchuck move of passing under your arm over your shoulder i can add a throw in and looks not too bad

i got this elbow wrap to wrist to other wrist to elbow wrap (possibly conveyer?) down

i tihnk i have the 4bt fig 8 down pretty well

im working on doing fishtails out of my elbow thing but damn WTF?

i can also do neck wraps, back spins (sometimes) and this back wrap (over left shoulder catch with right hand)

Posted:Not sure if its that new (think meg might have done it at some point) but horizontal kick ups from right foot, round the back to catch on left foot and repeat.

Also figured out a new groundwork move the other day, from turning SNES /Halo crouch down and drop right shoulder so the staff rolls onto right knee. Roll back on the floor and the staff wraps right knee then wraps left knee and you catch the staff back onto your left shoulder. Dunno what to call it yet but it feels like its gonna have quite a few variations. ubbrollsmile
