Posted:I reckon you need to do it with a really big stage ball or perhaps something the size of a basket ball (but obviously not a basket ball cuz that would look shite).

Help! My personality got stuck in this signature machine and I cant get it out!

Posted:TYeah, been messing around for a while in two ways:
1) Using the fire-staff as a means to light up the acrylic - i.e. they're used independently (palmspins with the staff whilst butterflying with the ball for example)
2) I've got a version of a circle (palm-palm-back-back) using a ball and staff and a couple of other 2-prop tricks...

So much too learn, so little time! wink
