Posted:I kind of like when this happens, means I'm starting to think less and just spin. Here's the first one I can think of:

Split time 4 beat Thread the Needle with poi.

Posted:Oh I like that one, it feels so nice grin Let me think. I don't understand how linear isolations work. But I understand fully how to do them and the entire concept. Just not physics-wise why they do what they do.

The only luck is bad luck.

Shut up before I stall my poi up your ass grin

Posted:I have a couple of full turns that I can only do about half the time if I think about them, but often do (and completely nail) once I get grooving. Meltdown pirouettes are one of these.

Posted:That makes no sense??? Every time I try to picture linear isolations in my head all I see is a point isolation.

Posted:Well, Detroit, you've hit on something there that I didn't actually mention it.

Its a flattened cateye THROUGH point isolations. There is a point isolation top and bottom.

I am of course talking about the straight horizontal or vertical line isolation rather than the squares and other patterns that one can make through line isolations, but most of the others are still loosely based on the cateye motion.

With the square, for example, theres actually a prospin and and an antispin way of doing it! If you do it BF and have them go the same way, one will be antispun and the other will be spun as a natural process. The antispin one is loosely based on a moving cateye motion, but its also a cycloid. tongue2
