Posted: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.

Posted:@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.

Posted: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

Posted: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...

Posted: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.

Posted: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.

Posted: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!

Posted: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.
