Posted:Does anyone have a Vid..or feels like making a vid of a propeller with poi..I have been reading alot about this lately...and I want to see what it looks like with poi...so I can attempt to learn it...I have read all the descriptions and they confuse me and i have spent the last 20 mins searching home of poi, google and you tube for a vid to no such luck....so I guess it is ok to make a post about it...:-)

Posted:Quality is low but I do a couple semi-sloppy propellers at the beginning of this vid followed by some failed attempts and some general messin around. Maybe it'll lead you in the right direction.

Posted:The poi I'm using are weighted at about 3:1 which means the hand has to be closer to the head. Also the poi I'm using seem to grab which makes doing a continuous propeller kinda tough.
