Reverse weave! Cause that opens LOADS of doors, especially when you link it with a normal forwards weave. Learn that, and you'll have fountains fairly soon afterwards... biggrin

Reels. Really good to learn cos they're so versatile. Learn some reel combinations and you can put them in with anything to make it look really good (REELy - no, now I look at it it's not actually that funny).

Also reverse weave, as Sambo_Flux said

Buy gerbils cos you can't spin with hamsters

I'll ditto Sambo_Flux as well. Frankly you can take all those moves you know and learn them backwards. Also changing the planes of the movements-- Corkscrew done standing up is Windmill, for example. Mexican Butterfly becomes Corkscrew if you bend over.

mike, hate to be pedantic, but that's releasing and catching not wibbling!

Because ActiveAngel sounds like a feminine deodorant

wibbles are solid (especially with non weighted poi!!)

as said do stuff backwards, then behind yer back
