I find it much easier to get into the BTB butterfly by first starting in a normal *backward swing* butterfly. On the upswing of any particulat beat, I direct my Poi past my hips and behind my back. I know it sounds crazy but I then let my hands cross and scoop them up towards the sky and I find that in doing this I get a pretty flat and even BTB butterfly. Hope that helps some.

I agree with ChaoticHarmony... I find it way easier to start in front of myself with a backwards butterfly and then take it BTB... sometimes I even let the Poi do one extra beat before getting them into BTB butterfly...

My problem is not being able to keep the Poi spinning level against the plane. They'll either tilt so they hit my shoulders/neck, or the other way so that they hit the back of my knees. I'll definitely try the tricks you suggested here though, I might do better with the reverse butterfly lol
