Posted:heya cool

i've just made some new toys and i have no idea what they're called .. they're similar to meteors but have a handle in the middle .. similar to staff, but between the handle and the wick is chain .. similar to poi but there's 2 wicks

wick----------------------------------------------------wick
--------------------------handle
- __------chain--------------------------chain---------__
|__|ooooooooooooo=======ooooooooooooo|__|

please excuse the ascii art

twirling style seems to lend from both staff and poi techniques, tho people who do staff have an easier time picking these things up.

I'm wondering if there IS a name for these things (i twirl doubles) and if there isn't, then i rekon a good name for them would be "morningstars" (koz i like the sound) or "bastards" (a very good description of the nature of the beasts)

i guess i might have to look up some medieval weaponry sites biggrin

Posted:that would be a meteorite. Firetoys sell them smile They're easier to get the hang off than meteors and are a good step towards learning them. Hence the name 'meteorite' biggrin
