If there is anything you want to shout from the rooftops but dont have a ladder, then this is for YOU! (plus it is a lot safer than climbing on top of a building)

Rediscovering my flowlights rig, and with it the oddness of spinning without tosses. Turns out I did miss orbitals a little. Maybe I get a new color this week...

Why no tosses with flowlights?

got Sol and have Nebula waiting for me at home, I'll let you know what I think in a short while!

although I find it hard to believe any flowlight could top Sol, they are really beautiful... just plain classy. none of the videos I've seen do them justice.

edit: ok I've played with my Nebulas a bit and here's what I think: Sols are very classy and beautiful, Nebulas are colorful and flashy. if flowlights were people at a party, Sol would be the refined gentleman in a tuxedo and Nebula would be the hippie chick with a flair for color and an impeccable sense of style. they're both awesome but for very different reasons.

hopefully that helps you decide. or be like me and get both... hehe

Well obviously there's nothing intrinsically antagonistic to throws about flowlights tongue2 My experimental flowlight-handled rig broke at a show at the end of last year, so what i have left is my single loop cords.

edit: ok I've played with my Nebulas a bit and though I like them, I still think Sol is my favorite. Sol is classy and clean, Nebula is flashy and bright and very colorful. hopefully that helps you decide!

I ended up going with Nebula this time since i think it'd complement spirit (my favorite), but Sol is still probably next. I know it's kind of "boring", but I also liked Air; sometimes the fun of a color is in what you can pair it with.

that's true, I started hooking flowlights together and it's so much fun I had to get a pair of duo tubes to play with. wish I had air, but it sounds like they won't be available until winter 2011, too bad.

I think nebula would go great with spirit... definitely. I'm gonna try that out now in fact!

Posts on flowtoys FB page suggest they were considering all white for the new air flowlights, but they haven't afaik made an outright statement.

Ooh I hope so. I was thinking of ordering all white as a custom job, so that'd take care of that...

nice, they look beautiful. flowlights rock my world. enjoy!

speaking of shouting things from the rooftops, I'll be spinning on a rooftop tomorrow and I am HYPED. it'll be my first fire jam, although I don't think I'll spin fire - I don't have any toys yet, plus I want to drink and don't feel like mixing that with fire. I will have my new nebula lights out in full force though, or maybe I'll bring my duos... either way it's gonna be awesome!

Heh. I am pretty sure I can. Just as long as SO does not actually see it happen. I like them though. They look very pretty.

thanks ash, it was fun. nobody was spinning fire when I was there, but I spun my flowlights for a while on the roof during a crystal-clear night with the skyscrapers glowing in the background and oh man was it ever beautiful. definitely doing that again soon. there was also a lot of aerial silk and hoop stuff going on including one girl who was basically an aerial silk stripper... that alone was worth the price of admission.

I bought a vaporizer, my lungs can thank me now. Figured with my asthma it was a good idea before I did it enough to where it actually made me worse again. I have almost no troubles with it other than strong odors give me attacks and I don't want it any worse like it used to be laugh3

The only luck is bad luck.

Shut up before I stall my poi up your ass grin

@Ash3s I found sock poi to be really helpful learning lots of stuff. Isos, stalls, tangles. The bounce leave room for error so getting the feel of the concept as a whole is easier. It was that way for me at least XD

my friend has a vaporizer and we use it every time I'm at her place... love it

and air wraps are much easier with sock poi! I just got my first pair of sock poi and the difference is night and day.

What kinda socks poi? I always found a difference form old school girls socks and the foxy socks I used to buy from HoP. I was really fond of the foxy socks and really only used the girls socks in my earlier stages of poi before I purchased gear made for the task.
