Posted:Because I see a lot of people asking for this and wasn't able to find anything definitive heres my best shot.
Isolating essentially means moving the centre of the circle to a point on the string (whereas normally, it is your hand)
To do this you move your hand in a circle with the poi so it makes a smaller circle. In a full isolation (both poi isolating together in split time) the strings will always be parallell and will seem to float
So essentially your hand is moving in the same circle as the opposite poi head
Keep in mind this is only for what we call a full isolation, any move can be isolated, and this is done by moving your hands in circles, in any weave isolation I have ever seen the strings will always be parallell for longer than normal

I'll try to get a video of the compound full isolation soon

You can actually do a trick of hitting 'threaded' and then 'flat' to get the real URL.



I think this is the thread you meant to link.



Unless you did mean to link to your search of every time you said isolation.



But that would be REALLY pretentious. wink

Posted:Yes it did come up with other topics, but from what I read (which was admittedly rushed) I didn't see a really comprehensive defenition
I'm not sure what you mean getting in/out of them, you start, or stop moving your hand in a circle instead of just spinning the poi normally

The "showstopper" eh?
Is that like setting light to your trousers? Or just running out of fuel? wink

We've generally got our own show stoppers here.

When the cops show up, take a bow and go home.

Posted:Hey Jay. *cheers*

Hahaha,... showstopper..
Jeremy is the only guy I've seen who can pull that off.

K.. get this... he gets into a btb reverse weave, then isolated... in mid isolation, both ends are caught (right poi with left hand, left with right) and while still behind the back, swings one hand around and pulls this ridiculously cool liquid move around his head, and throws the poi back out into a 3 beat.

I've never seen anyone else do that.


They're just circles.. anything's possible

Posted:kutulu you should make some sockpoi, those hop glowballs suck for weight (got some last year, they were my favourites for a while, but no longer smile ), they're far to light for decent iso's and you can't see the cord well enough for the pattern to be nice.

you're "5 beat slide" is pretty much the movement you want for 5 beat iso weave, but i'd be very impressed if you could make it with such light poi.

/me working on an nice iso vid atm..

Posted:Yakumo, I missed your post somehow... Those actually aren't from HOP
I made them from scratch with a soft pvc plastic ball with a 3 LED unit inside of it that I bought from Home Depot (Bastards dont sell them anymore), Rope swivels and UV reactive nylon rope... the weight is beautiful, I've tried lots and lots of other poi and I dont like anything else, although I do really want a good set of sock poi
