hi all...

last october, at common ground, i stumbled apon a horizontal hyperloop, of which i could not find a way out of. but. after several days of experimenting i found a way out, which soon led to this: the hyperpitouette.

im gradually refining it, and this morning caught it six times out of ten, cleanly.

has this been done before?

cheers, pete hug

Its difficult question to answer, because there are many spinners thinking about moves and inventing, but I saw it for the first time pete smile
I've tried to do the same, but holding one handle and let the free handle twist for a while in hyperloop before I catched it again.

keep on spinning smile,

It's a lot of fun, the butterfly ones are cool smile also whip catch pirouettes are very possible and look so very very ace biggrin

Aim high and you'll know your limits, aim low and you'll never know how high you could have climbed.

May this move help you.
You can make and airwrap wall plane, that can change direction. Cause as your airwrap tangle in the end there is only full wrap and from this wrap and in this moment, you can start to untangle reversed.

like airwrapping them and then wrapping them on your wrists (you can have the poi wrap around each other once and then wrap on the same wrist thats holding that poi, or you can wrap em twice and have em wrap on the wrist of the opposite poi... ad infinitum)...
do it again and again and again!
(one direction then the other)
oh yeah!.

Yeah done lots and lots, especially with pirouettes. You can throw them really high too and they don't come untangled (if you use knotted sock handles) and they carry on rotating around their centre for a good two or three full rotations.

He already is! The entry may be horzontal same direction hyperloop but the throw is from vertical butterfoop after you put them into one hand.



Although seeing as same direction hyperloops and butterfloops are basically the same thing I guess it doesn't really matter much but it's worth keeping your eye on Pete



smile



You're having trouble exiting....well do the same as normal hyperloops. Look at the knot and see when they'll pop out, if you want more info pm me I'm sure we could talk all day about em biggrin weavesmiley

or you could talk about them in here and we could ALL benefit from duncs amazing menagerie of knowledge!
(dances about dunc, strewing flowers all the while)
tra-la-la!
smile
hey by the way dunc when you're propellering (i remember reading you saying that you could do 63 in a row, once), do you have your hand fancing down to the ground, out away from you, or straight up in the air? (im sure, im sure, all can be done... but...) i can get 4 when my hand faces down. 4! (yay!)
(and whats the difference between propeller and wibble?)
thanks!
biggrin
