Start with the buzzsaw rt hand going away from your face, left hand towards the body. Speed the right hand up so that it cuts right behind the left poi at the top of its rotation. Once your timing is really good you can keep your hands relly close togeather and it looks like an atomic butterfly with poi going in opposite directions. Opposite time attomic butterfly. If you slow down your right hand so that the poi are going same speed the poi are traveling at eachother like an air wrap , they do wrap and come apart into reg fwds butterfly. Opposite time atomic butterfly hyperloop. I hope this is not too hard to picture. it is the raddest transition from buzzsaw to butterfly. I hope that this inspires instead of frustrates. good luck.

I also learned butterfly hyperloop to Left wrist stall to toss both poi , turn catch and toss both poi again. You cant stall on right wrist because the tangle will continue. Good luck. BTB throw and catch same hand. Im so stoked on this site I have learned so much, whatever I can give back to the community.

dont make peoples heads turn, give them whiplash.

all atomics are butterflies.. they are either opposite or same direction bf's, but they all work like a butterfly.. (which is why the same direction ones have to have perfect timing, like the plane twister wink)

All atomics are an odd combination of both. From the same position I can go into a TTN or a buzzsaw weave without changing planes...

fair enough.. but because you can go into inversions, does that mean they weave? I mean.. arent you just using inversions and threading? then again.. isnt a weave just same direction threading? then again does any of this really matter.. lol...

humm,
I think it depends what you do with them....

I actually have a nice looking splittime atomic weave now, and i8t definatly works like a weave when crossed, but like a butterfly when open.

later.
