Posted:(I didn't see another post on the topic, but I'm new, so forgive me if this has already been covered) I don't really care to define what a hybrid is because such a topic has been tackled by several other spinners in different forums and in youtube vids.(and i tend to define it in a different way, so i don't want to argue about technicalities) I just want to know what cool hybrids you guys have come up with, are working on, or wish to do one day!

I have been working on several CAP hybrids lately. (CAP meaning half circle extension, one petal antispin flower) I have been working on CAP vs 4 Petal Antispin, and CAP vs Extension. Also Extension vs Three petal flower, and extension vs cateye (derived from the three petal flower in the previous hybrid)

One idea that I have for a hyrbrid that hasn't come to fruition is:
Extension VS Antispin out of a butterfly crosser. Most of us have seen Mel's tech poi video, and I believe he was one of the first to do an antispin out of a same direction full body crosser/meltdown. Could a hybrid version of this be done from a butterfly full body crosser/meltdown?

Also I've been working on Alien Jon's vertical vs horizontal cateye (very hard)...

also I made a hybrid video a month or so ago that is now kinda out of date, but I can post it if you guys want...

SOOOOOooooo..... What hybrids have you all tackled, created, hypothesized, conjured, envisioned, etc...

Posted:Here is a link to the Hybrid thread Andy House (AKA Poi Box II AKA Analema) started back in 2004. Andy is who discovered the concept and coined the term Hybrid. That thraed contains some nice snapshots of Hybrid development over the years. I'd suggest moving this conversation to Andy's thread, after you have reviewed hybrid history.

Concerning CAP:
By my definition you are talking about only one specific type of CAP.
The definition you give differs from the one Damien (AKA French Saltimbanque AKA Zaltymbunk), and he is the one who coined the term, here:
http://www.homeofpoi.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/836556/Re_Yuta_moves_analysis.html


Here is a newer post concerning CAPs:
http://www.homeofpoi.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/894868/Re_What_are_CAP_s.html


As one of the people who has most actively spread the term CAP, I must also say that my definition is very closely inline with Damien, who I got the term from.


Concerning Antispin VS Extension from a blfy crosser: What mode are the arms doing? There are tons of variants on this idea. I've been doing one since 2007 that Insignai dubbed the "Antispin Aneurysm"... except that is actually a 1 petal inspin VS 4 petal antispin, arms in together-time (sorta), arms extending and contracting in an offset timing... It is almost exactly like the split-same crosser extensions I do @ 2:17 in the Arizona video, only imagine one is doing 4 petal antispin:

#t=0h2m17s


Mel's video was great, and he is quite talented, but most of those ideas are just variations on stuff that people like Nick Woolsey, Zan, Nevisoul, G, Cyrille, myself, and many others I'm forgetting have proliferated. Could you give me a specific time in Mel's "Mel [tech poi vid] Me & My Shadow", when he is doing this antispin out of same direction crosser, so I can see exactly what you mean?



By all means, post links to your hybrid videos too!

Posted:Insignia broke down a lot of the combos you're listing a few months ago. Here's a vid of many of them demonstrated:



Ext vs Antispin wouldn't be terribly difficult out of a butterfly crosser--your arms would unwrap in split-time same direction in the same way many people have unwrapped from crossers to giants. The only difference is the direction of the poi.

Can I try get something clear here: the definition you are using for CAPs is that it is a one-handed pattern with variance in time? Whereas a hybrid is a two-handed pattern with variance in space? But since most people poi with two poi, there is confusion?

Not been on Youtube for a while, so not sure if this has been cleared up over there.

Posted:Ok, leme try this again. CAPs have to do with how you sequence geometric building-blocks over time. As such you can break it down to the path 1 poi & handle traces in space, and the sequence that traces it over time.

If you are sequencing stuff that doesn't fit into simple compound circle ratios, ie your "driving-style" or the building-blocks that are making up the move keep changing , you are probably doing a CAP, even with one hand.

Now, make both hands trace out a CAP, in a variety of ways... you are still doing patterns that have the CAP attribute. If your hands are doing different building-blocks/driving-styles at the same time, then the pattern also has the hybrid attribute.

Poi is a bunch of Ven diagrams: there are the set of hybrids, the set of CAPs, and an overlap: the set of hybrid CAPs.

Here is a cheezy example: If you are doing the familiar "C CAP" as Yuta called it, with one hand, and a cateye with the other, there is obviously a CAP going on. It is also a hybrid. If both hands did the C-CAP, then not necessarily a hybrid... Although both hands C-CAP, poi opposite, hands together-same IS a hybrid CAP.


Damien seems really focused on compound circle spinning, as he is thinking of the poi like a spirograph. I personally include building blocks of all distinctly geometric spinning.

There is a grey area when you look at things like sequencing complex inversion/introversion/inside combo patterns together. These are not necessarily being very geometric in spin-plane. If you look at the sequences of cross-points, plane-facing switches and framing, then they can be sequentially rather CAP-like by (my) definition. But right now I think I exclude them from CAPs, and maybe lump them into "Composite spinning" which is really just a mentality I have about treating poi spinning attributes like music and/or visual synthesis.... Sampling, modifying, modulating, sequencing together in multiple tracks.

Cool, that was what I was trying clear up. Thanks.

The problem with the venn diagrams is the confusion they cause at times. I love the way this is such an open prop.

Have not thought of inversion/introversion/insides as CAP-like, but I can see what it has in similiarity, by you definition.

As for the CAP's I didn't mean that was my definition, just meant that was the particular CAP i was referring to with the hybrids I've been working on. Poiboi hit it right on the money with mel's vid at 1:17 and Drex pretty much covered the idea that was in my head. It seems easy in theory but has been giving me trouble for quite some time.

I really need to come on HOP more often.

The weird hybrids that I've been breaking into...and actually understanding is the CATEYE vs CAP ones. Now, when I say this, you look at the cateye from the vertical, the horizontal and the diagonal. However, for the use of basic symmetry, I haven't gone into diagonal nonsense.

You have Vertical Cateye vs C CAP. When you do this, I think you can do it in both same direction and opposite direction. I know you can do it in at least opposite direction. For me, my left hand was doing the C CAP on my left side ( movement being from 12 to 6 passing through 9 for the antispin ) while my right hand did the Vertical Cateye. The timings in the parallel arrangements seems to work out best in split time. But, if you change the C CAP orientation to overhead ( movement being from 9 to 3 passing through 12 for the antispin ) you get this "Arrowhead" style hybrid...THING that happens. Mind you, thats only if you are doing a verical cateye. The fundamentals are the same for the horizontal as well.

I vaguely attempted this in one of my latest videos, but failed miserably because I couldn't grasp the mechanics. But, I've been playing around with it a little more...its coming together grin

Posted:hey insignia, do you have any advice on the arrowhead hybrid thing. I'm having trouble with the timing, does the top of the cateye meet with the antispin petal from the top c cap? also is this is opposite direction. btw I'm starting to get vertical c cap vs vertical cateye preety ok in spit opposite!!
