Posted:Honestly, turns are my favorite if we're going just by how much I like to do them. Just in general, reel turns, flower turns, turns with weird degrees of twist, floor plane flowers... I just like nailing a turn. Runners up are any kind of stall, and split-opp/split-opp antispin wall plane flowers.

Posted:I can't say I have a favorite move, ever really. The closest I could come might be a continuous one hand spiral wrap or this meltdown reel thingy that just has a huge feeling of wind and unwinding. More so than anything I've ever used. Of couse I might just have to say whirling. I love whirling it's such a great feeling especially when you put a little jump in it like you're running. It all depends on what the music is making me feel at the given point in time. My spinning is highly centered on emotion.

The only luck is bad luck.

Posted:a simple pirohette. (did I spell that right?) Seems easy to spin around with arms extended, but to do it smoothly, gracefully, and transition into other moves is trickier than you'd think. So many times it just looks rushed or offplane.

I still dont have it down pat, but Im still enjoying that the most right now.

Posted:^^^I think I have to agree actually. I love pirouetting with antispin flowers. Now that it's getting warm slowly. I can start practicing turning with them while keeping them on the same plane. hopefully I can still do it badly so I can avoid smacking my head repeatedly.

I'm starting to become more comfortable with the pendulum stuff but the BTB stuff I find challenging. But one day it will be mine .... oh yes it will be mine, muh ha ha ha ha!

I'm not too great yet at BTB stuff like that yet... YET... but, I just came up with an interesting (I think) variation on what G's going over in that video...
At the moment I'm trying to figure out how to explain it in words, and kind of annoyed I can't film it to look at later.

I guess... Instead of doing (arms split-same) the pendulum down into outspin up through anti-spin back into pendulum, I'm doing (arms split-opposite, so they meet pointing left, then right) the pendulum down into outspin up through inspin (2 quick inspin beats then pendulum) and back into pendulum.
It feels a little funny because you need to speed up the inspin beats as it takes longer to do 2 inspin petals than to do 2 antispin petals....

In retrospect, after typing all of this out, I guess I'm doing a split-opposides inspin wallplan flower with alternating pendulums, not sure if that's an easier way to describe it... I really need to buy a camera one of these days.

P.S. I'm tired, so... sorry for rambling on and on and on and... =)

Posted:I do love antispin flowers, though in practice I try to avoid them for the most part--just because they're easy to overuse. But yeah, nothing quite like whirling around with a split-same or split-op antispin.

Posted:that I can do right now: four-petal antispin wall plane flowers. the ones where you start and end with arms crossed. usually doing extensions to get back to the starting point, or sometimes doing a "box" stall and reversing direction. depends on how I feel!

either that or psuedo-isolations, I've been playing a lot with those lately and they're fun because you can create so many unique patterns with them and they're extremely easy to learn if you have good plane control. I'm talking about the ones where you pick a direction, then move your hand rapidly in a straight line as soon as your poi is pointing in that direction, causing your poi to stall for a second and then continue spinning. hard to describe but alien jon teaches them a lot and they are more or less the opposite of pulsing.

that I haven't learned yet: I saw someone doing some really cool 3D poi last weekend. she would start with one poi in front, one in back, do one petal of antispin in the horizontal plane to switch them, then stall out and reverse. it didn't look terribly difficult but it will take some practice being able to stay on that horizontal plane. definitely need to learn that one!
