sometimes i watch Double Staff vids and go to practice but somehow find myself applying the moves to Poi. but not mixing moves but mixing toys, does anyone try doing like 1 Poi and 1 staff at the same time or a hoop or fan or kindof a double Rope Dart, not a meteor. does anyone do this or try it?

I have seen some of this around on the internet before. There can be some cool stuff to be done. Torch Poi has a lot of those kind of possibilities you get from having 1 Poi and a "other" prop (Like staff, club, hoop)
I actually was playing with a little torch I have in one hand and a Poi in the other recently lol. Just some fun.

I've played around with one Poi and one club before, which was kind of fun. There are also some people at the jams here who I've seen playing with one Poi and one mini hoop, and at least attempting to hoop while spinning buugeng. Joffjk also has some combined poi/juggling videos on his channel. I don't know anyone who practices combined toys seriously, but I have seen some fun experiments.

I've seen poi/hoop, poi/staff, Contact Juggling or Poi and slackline,basically putting a short meteor on the end of a Rope Dart (epic win), and I have also seen and recorded on my phone a 3 person walking monster, 1 person Contact Juggling on top, person spinning poion the bottom, but hi arms were like the middle, and another with I torches that was the middle part, but her body was sticking out forward. It was a sight to be seen.

The only luck is bad luck.

Shut up before I stall my poi up your ass grin

I discovered something that I call 'JOI', its Poi spinning while 3 Ball Juggling. So far I can cascade in split-time butterfly and I can do columns in same-time butterfly. Looks NASTY awesome!

Lots of oldskool mixing of props, I recall putting Poi on the ends of my staff for a while and finding it quite difficult, but very rewarding to get some patterns down.
Recommendation though, have the Poi Length fairly short!

Hmm.. something I haven't tried tried, but just thought of. Using a sliding Fire Orb to light my own Poi. I feel like something pretty dramatic could be worked out with that. Maybe lighting both in a butterfly meeting in the middle, or one at a time by sliding the orb back and forth.
Time to go play smile

charles, i did that right after my last post, it feels like a jerky meteor, really cool though.
i also thought of something i call a drop staff.
double Staffs with a Poi conecter in the middle, thought of a design but i couldnt make it very well, it would work best with a center swivel

I left some Poi and diabolo's in a bag and when i came back it was full of yoyo's grin

and on a more serious note I can poiggle Poi whilst Juggling but nowhere near as good as DevKev who does it well and also has done hats with Poi.

Used to be able to do 4 balls with Poi but needs the right length chains and weight heads.

A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.
