Posted:I didn't see one, and I thought it deserved its own thread. For when you see a move you really like, but can't wrap your head around it. Then you figure out how or see a tutorial, and you can just magically do it.

Yeah, here's a thread for that amazing feeling wink

As for my first post, Butterfly Staggered Stalls. I've had much more over the times, but I can't remember them and don't feel like listing anyways.

Posted:The latest one was wrist bumps and bicep wraps. I had been struggling with these, then I saw someone doing them in person and could just do it. Same with the fake 5bt weave where you wrap the poi around your wrist instead of your wrists around each other.

This seems to happen every couple of weeks, really. I'll see someone doing something in person that I've been struggling with, and all of a sudden I can just do it. One of the great things about spinning with other people.

Well after playing with the pacman twist for a while, the butterfly weave just kind of fell into place so I guess I can say that!

Posted:G's favorite move. I had done it wrong before, but I saw the video and it just worked. Also, the fun CAP style variations. It is sooo fun. Might just me my favorite move now too grin I've also been diving some into his kind of plane changing and different stalls and direction changes. I have to say they're super fun!

Posted:I have to use those more often. I use so many pendulum moves as it is, it'd flow pretty naturally. Next to my "moves to learn" list I should start a "moves you know but forget to ever use, and you should because they're awesome" list.

Posted:Accidentally did the motion for an isolated 3bt weave. After that everything fell into place. Its not perfect but I can definitely do it.

Also I saw someone do this and was able to do it first try. Poi are same direction split time. arms in opposite like its a 4 petal flower in opposites. I've always known about this trick but never tried it or forgot it existed.

Posted:Alright, check this: an overhead, btb one handed butterfly. Never practiced it before, Hell never even thought of it. I was spinning fire just now with an emphasis on butterfly related moves and the thought suddenly occurred when holding a btb butterfly, held it for three good beats before tangling. I'm going to practice this more right now! grin

Posted:Yeah I actually learned with a lot of things that all I had to do was turn slower or faster and I was focusing on the poi too much. Many of these things just need you to forget the fact that you are swinging poi and just let them do whatever.

Posted:I am still not sure what an inverted weave is. And goofy flowers are awesome. I also randomwly figured out how to do orbitals consistently with my 2mm chains. So now I can impress more with orbitals and not look like a tard failing 3 times before I get it right.
