nice.

fishtail to same shoulder (as if halo) then turn and roll back down the top of same arm into either back of hand spin/fishtail/both. this is a good one for smoking - leaves a hand free. biggrin
1/2 steves without the neck wrap, stopping/turning to have it just going back and forth on arms.

Posted:haven't got the hang of quoting whoops! only the first line above is quote.
after reading something in another thread (can't remeber which one) i've discovered extra beat fishtails, i do it as a mini throw at both front and back making 3 beats i think. the way it was described in the other thread was with propellers both front and back.

Posted:double butterfly steves to half matrix and neck wrap.

Start off doing a front side double butterfly steve then when the sticks get to your throat, turn 180 so one goes low into matrix (front side entry) and the other goes round your neck and both sticks go back up the outside of the arm they came down.

Strugz im stealing that one armed full steve idea for sure

Posted:ok slightly over excited post there. Its not a half matrix and neck wrap, its an opposite shoulder half matrix and a carry. The neck wrap and matrix is possible but the timing is really difficult.
Bizarly its actually easier to do an opposite shoulder entry to matrix that a standard matrix cos it keeps the sticks away from each other more and reduces the chance of them colliding.

Posted:err, fishtails again, this time with arm propeller (in front - behind is scary [censored]) on r arm only.
got rid of the mini throws for aforementioned 3 beat fishtail, constant contact now (on right anyways)
getting there on the jesus front, started playing with under the armpit entrances/exits - theres lots to do here with doubles!
halo while passing the other staff hand to hand over head windmill stylee. (somehow works!)
one day i'll be able to remember all these little bits and make them flo, a few more years practice maybe? :sigh:

Posted:Apologies for the crap name...



Orecul's{Oracle's?}- Reverse Lucero's! In the same way that Lucero's are halo's joined with half-fishtails at the shoulder Orecul's are the front-side portion of a jesus joined with half-fishtails at the shoulder.



In Lucero's you tend to scoop under the staff with your shoulder when doing the half-fishtail portion. In Orecul's you hook the staff down with your chin.



And apologies if this has been discussed before...



...Ah, upon checking I seem to have rediscovered a move I've mentioned before in this thread. At least this time I gave it a proper name...
