Posted:When I do butterfly with poi going forward (inwards) I can do thread the needle fine, usually starting with right slightly in front of left.

When I try this with poi going backwards (outwards) I have no idea how to make one hand go in front of the other. One just keeps knocking on my arm. I can do the butterfly fine and overhead (not underhand windmill yet though)

Is my brain just stuck at the moment with underhand thread the needle?

Posted:It's quite a bit harder than normal thread the needle. The biggest breakthrough I had was changing the dropping motion on the beat to a lifting motion, but I still can't get it with neat planes.

Posted:it will look wierd, and feel even wiereder when you finnaly do it, best thing I can suggest is Over exaggerate the initial few beats, heck even bring them out to nearly a Reel Position.

Posted:The TTN planes fly different from a butterfly.

TTN inwards has the stabbing hand crossing above the other hand that is then pulled back below, TTN outwards has the stabbing hand crossing under the other hand that is then pulled back above.

TTN inward and outward have the stabbing hand piercing the plane and ending in front, difference is the over-under the arm.
