Posted:I've been playing around with this idea myself and i think that a 4 poi windmill looks so much better.

My sugestions

-A butterfly in each hand but you need to be able to start a butterfly with one hand and theres a trick to it but i'm only just learning it myself so i cant give any hints just yet.

-3bt weave but the poi will twist up on oneside then untwist and seperate on the other.

-It may be possible to build a tower of tangles but it's only theory at the moment however there is a thread about it somewhere (mutiplex tangles i think?) but it sugests the trick as a two person move so it would need some adaptation.

-Don't be afraid to do most of your old poi tricks coz you can always twist up your poi so that they can act as 1 instead of 2 but be warned that they will untwist when you are spinning.

My questions

-How do you hold your poi?
-Any hints for changing the direction of one poi but not the other (both in the same hand).

Posted:thanx for the ideas, iv been try'in a cuple but my left hand seems to fail me mostly.

iv been try'in the twisting but iv also figured out how to do the 3bt weave with out tangling by twisting my hands a bit like a 5bt thing.

but yer iv been holding my sock poi, (that have just got nots for handle,) with one between my little finger and ring finger and the other between my thumb and index finger, or with my fire poi i just have a loop around my thumb and little finger.

as for changing the direction I can only do it by doing double with my one hand and use the other just to wrap one poi apart from that im a bit stuck for ideas.

Posted:quad poi tricks can be found by searching under such exciting names as "4 poi", "four poi" and "double butterflies". here are some dusty old threads that have some four poi tricks and some which just have one-handed butterfly variations:

4 poi butterfly
one handed butterfly
double single handed poi (4 poi) ???
more than one poi to a hand
How many can you do?

good luck smile
