I spunked in my friend's aquarium and the fish ate it. I love all fish. Especially the pink ones. They are my bitches. - Anon.

Right.

So its 4 sticks..

Pretending they are 2 sticks.

Whats the point of that? wink

Surely its better to have 2 sticks and make it look like 4?

rolleyes your soooo missing the point tongue

if you can do fish with two on one hand it means that both points of contact are moving together at the same speed the whole time otherwise they fall off which means your moving with the fish following the path of the staff rather than forcing them where u want them to be meditate

ubblol

cross fish are unstable ...... far as i can tell anyway

ubbidea couldn't you maybe push one stick after the other? Like - when you do a normal fishtail you give a push on each side right and let the staff do the rest right?

Well couldn't you then theoretically give one push after another to do quadfish in cross formation? I'd assume you'd have to let the sticks jump a little, so maybe not a fishtail in the purest of definitions, but it could sure look like one wink

there's nothing quite as fulfilling as a tasty airwrap

spank lexy posting as me

lava im doing reverse but forwards would be doable to, no video planned in the near future ull have to wait for a col entry

the idea laura is to not push it at all but to simply support it, doing two on one hand makes u find a path where u only support because if u push either stick u lose the balence and they seperate and well thats game over. as for quad fish crosses uuuuummmmm yeeeeeeah im sure kyles been doing them for ages smile
