SoD that sounds like the one handed superman. There was a video of that posted on the tech Poi forums on FB. Is this where you got that from?

It is indeed the one handed superman, but add in your other hand doing a weave with the other Poi that's not bouncing back and forth grin And I got it from a 3stringing video but I did see that post on there.

The only luck is bad luck.

Shut up before I stall my Poi up your ass grin

Personal milestone: finally getting consistent with three contact moves (arm rolls from cradle, from a palm hold, and from a toss) to the point of starting to be able to work them into real spinning. Also getting staggered tosses over my shoulders from btb.

@SoD Nice, the 3rd Poi makes it crazier thats for sure XD

@S11 Toss contact rolls are crazy hard, I haven't managed to one yet. I do love the throw the Poi head into my hand and use the momentum of the falling handle to start a contact roll from my palm. I have been working on that a lot sense I made my Contact Poi.

I've finally nailed a few things I've been working on.

-Horizontal Cateye vs Vertical Cateye (in both same time and split time, opposites)
-Horizontal Cateye Weave in split time opposites (working on split time, same direction)
-Being able to spin/turn/whirl(whatever term is correct wonder ) in either direction with standard and box mode antispin flowers in split time, same direction; same time, opposites; and split time, opposites.
-Antispin crosser in split time same direction
-Snake arms. These are fun. ubbrollsmile

Ah, the elusive horizontal cateye. Every once in a while I can do two or three in a row... Maybe now that my Stage One Contact Intensive, Code: Benny Hill's Eyebrows (I made a file on it just so I could name it that) is coming to a close I can get back to that one. I distract so easily sometimes...

Antispin crossers! Known how they worked for a while now, but always had issues with plane control during the back plane passes. Huzzah! Love these things!

Right, backward butterfly, wall plane, vertical CAP flower,
where the [bottom-> top] half is half circle CAP and the
[top->bottom] half is simple long arm. You can tune this
move by changing the half circle with the CAP from left
to right.

Fun variation on the first I just started playing with: With both hands, alternate between stall and pendulum, so each Poi spins 3/4 turn and takes turns being the upstall. Makes a fun transition into 90 degree stall chasers.

had a huge breakthrough with wall-plane flowers this weekend. previously I had practiced the one where each Poi traces one half of a four-petal antispin flower (right Poi starting on top, left on bottom, each Poi spinning to the left) and then loops back to the starting point via extension.

well last weekend I took that a bit further and now I can do the full four petals, looping back to the starting point either via extension or a tight circle (which looks more badass imo). felt good.

lot of work to be done - need to smooth out all the different modes and directions - but I feel like being able to start and end wall plane flowers with arms fully crossed is a big hurdle to have behind me. and I was feeling rather aimless lately, so it's nice to finally have a huge yet very specific set of things to work on.

also want to learn that damn triquetra/extension flower pattern, but hey, one thing at a time.

is that like a wall plane flower in opposites? just curious because I am working on the same thing, if so. although I prefer one Poi antispin, one Poi extension.

regardless, good job!

It's wall plane flower, but you must specify the hand/poi
timing.. also there is one more I think:

Wheel plane, hands alternate, Poi butterfly.
One hand long arm, one hand anti-spin.
