I was playing around with tangle buzzsaws today, and I thought I'd try and use my poi as a skipping rope while they were tangling around eachother. ubbidea Has anyone already done this and given it a name, or am I the first?!

Ive seen glow stringers do what they call an "orbital", which is basically an tangled buzzsaw that spins very fast and doesnt come undone, and jump over it like if someone were to jump over a cane held in both hands.

Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.

That's pretty much what I was doing, and then bringing it over my head so that it's back in front of me. Thanks for giving me the name!

Woah... hold up there sonny.

An orbital is the name for the bringing together of the glowsticks into the hyperloopy thingy.
It does not include the jump.

Just so you know... smile

funnily enough, i've always called that one 'the skipping rope'

biggrin

a couple of times(with long poi) i've managed three rotations and still exited cleanly, but one is more usual...

I think that's what ICoN was saying but didn't use enough punctuation to make that clear.

You can do anything you want to your orbitals. Just ask Cleric. eek

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

check out toxic's vid in the video section.. it has this move (which he's been using a while, I think its in his vid from last summer or maybe HIN) and some other neat little orbital variations..





and yes.. you can do a lot with orbitals.. they are just shrunken airwraps.. so anything that applies to one applies to the other.. its just orbitals are nicer to move around because they are smaller in diamter... thus you can sqeeze them through those hard to reach places..
