So I have seen a few people now swinging a single long poi, with lots of wraps..
I had a go last night, putting two chains together and it was lots of fun to be
imagining crazy wrap combinations, the rythm felt nice too.

It must have a name? What is it? Where can I get some
ideas on form, technique, tricks etc..

Wanna learn wanna learn ubbloco

Hey mico biggrin
i only found out your real life identity the day before yesterday ubblol

weight at one end = rope dart
weight at both ends = meteor

innit?

ideas: check out the definitive meteor thread in this forum.
and i recommend Shaolin Temple (Jet Li's debut)

Cheers Simian. I'll try and put whatever I find on here.

(Have you noticed how the thread rating puts informative
higher than useful...? )

there were some other threads but I'm not sure where they are now...

Because ActiveAngel sounds like a feminine deodorant

Like sex, I'm much more interesting in real life than online.
