Posted:So theres a move that Ive been doing with double staves that I just translated to poi. Its still rather shloppy but I think it has some potential. Its sort of like an isolation, except youre only isolating a single axis of the poi's rotation. In other words, your poi end up moving only in a straight line rather than a circle.



The best way to get what I mean is to stand in front of a mirror spinning one poi at your side (closest to the mirror) and try to spin your poi but having it only move straight up and down. Its easiest if you let the head trace your legs in the mirror. What youre basically doing is moving your hand forward and back (the diameter of your poi's circle) so that the poi doesnt have to move on that axis.



Still havent played with it enough to find anything really interesting but Ill be sure to work on it. In the mean time, play yourselves and see what you can find!

Posted:uh... stupid question here... but isn't a vertical "linear isolation" just jerking the rope and, as Cole put it, flailing? With my rats (r.i.p.), I would get them going up and down pretty easily, since they're stretchy... Maybe you're jerking with style, but that's pretty much what you're doing...

I dunno. The one I usually do is an anti-spin split time butterfly buzzsaw flower.



I realize this is somewhat off topic, but since it was mentioned: is a buzzsaw flower the same thing as a buzzsaw fountain?


taken out of context i must seem so strange

Posted:I think yes.
Fountain is club swinging term used for circular pattern that is flower too. Fountain is more connected with split and parallel time and flower with BF time.
In fountain you use circles with same radius, with flower you can mix it.

Posted:Right, cuz you can do something like a goofy chase flower (arms move like split time bf, poi move in split time chase) in buzzsaw. Fountains are simply going from forward to backward then back again while facing wall plane in either chase or butterfly.







PS. I always jerk with style...
