i've just finished reading "propellers" by dunc and "contact poi" by elasta. smile



i just wanted to say that the way you two not only describe the way you manipulate your poi, but also the way in which you convey it (beautiful spacing and use of graemlins and text etc) made for a delightful read. biggrin



most importantly, you've given me some direction in my own spinning, and i thank you for that too. smile smile smile



yay!



thank you very much for being you. ubbrollsmile

i think that duncs scripture on his poi moves, and the way he talks so enphusically about it is just as nice to listen to as it is to watch

he is a really big hearted and loverly guy, who is a beatiful tech spinner
hug

and elasta, you are very pretty to, with lovlerly words that make you more live in text than most other charachters

thankyou for sharing the knoledge

ubblol

If Dunc cant, no-one can wink

They are the wierdest looking poi move ive seen, asking Dunc is fun though because you watch him do them then watch his face change to a mass state of confusion as he trys to work it out ubblol

Start doing foward TTN in the right wheel plane. When the right hand is underneath (so the poi is away from you spinning to the bottom of the circle and then coming to to point at you) and further to the left of your left poi (so roughly where you'd spin a buzzsaw) you can then roll your right hand around your left arm following the direction of the poi until your right hand is now on top of your left arm and you can move into the left wheel plane.

I think that's about the simplest BF crossarm inversion smile
