Just another poll. :juggle:
no 4 ball option
so i voted for poi :P
Diabolo, loop-diabolo or <contact-juggling is the new diabolo!>
poi.. but I used to play with my diabolo.. til I saw Martin.. then I decided I was crap and have hung up my Beard and Stix..
3 ball, but only coz i can't do 5 yet, and i don't think i'll be able to start having fun with 5 till i can do 5 ball mill's mess and 5 ball shower. oh the possibilies :?
Flattery will get you ... um ... probably a pint
You at Symbiosis ?
Fire Poi is number one weapon of choice for me, though I've dabbled to varying degrees with most of the options.
I love poi :P , but am not very good, still learning the ropes....... or chains as it should be :rolleyes: ! Done fire poi one or twice, really excitin :punk: .............. i want more ! But want to be a bit better tooo :? !!
Bring on the sticks I say ..
poi and double staff!! rar
but can battle with all these toys!!
including the 5 balls...
:!: did you -*double take*- did you just say 5 balls? :!: :wow: :mad: :P
Wot no stilts nor devilstick? So I went for the 3-ball (it is my forte, 20+years exp), tho' club passing is my biggest kick. :juggle: I spin a mean plate, too!
Sorry there are only so many options allowed
trust me, you'll have fun with 5 balls long before then.
5 ball mills is a *seriously* hardcore trick - there really aren't that many people that can do it.
and a 5b shower isn't the easiest thing in the world by a long shot either!
i'm learning easy siteswaps with 5 right now (like (5)64(5) and (5)744(5)) and still trying to get my inverse cascade to look something like a normal pattern.
for anyone that likes tricks with lots of balls you can check out mr dietz's latest video:
*wonders what a '5 ball battle' looks like - is it just endurance...?*
I'm up for the challenge :cool:
5 ball high-low-medium shower looks like an amaizing trick. Managed to flash 5 a few days ago; that felt hardcore enough for me, looks like the begining has been reached. I wasn't particularly planning on doing anything else with the next 3 years of my life :dancey: 7 ball cascade looks like fun :P
i caught a high-med-low with 4 the other day
it looks like this: http://www.jugglingdb.com/news/siteswap.php?site=717171b17131
4 ball shower tricks have almost as much variety as 5b shower tricks but are about 10 times easier!
multiplexes add even more scope - i'm working on getting this one solid: http://www.jugglingdb.com/news/siteswap.php?site=717171b1211
:wow: those siteswaps are cool, i want them, a bit beyond me at the moment, what with me only being able to do the high low shower clockwise. i shall put these on my wish list.
Mr coleman, what do you know about the cranked mess? any tips for getting started? :juggle:
i don't know what a cranked mess is?
same thing as a 5bt mills maybe?
you need reverse windmills for this - windmills where the over the top ball is thrown from on top of the other arm rather than from underneath it.
i can only do 4b showers one way too - high-low showers with 3 only work anti-clockwise as well.
i don't know anyone that can do all their shower tricks both ways...
ah, you've gotta do it both ways
I'm trying to get it so that i can do the 441 mills mess, (the showery one) and getting the 7131 to jump out of it, on both sides, could be a wicked little sequence if i can get 7131 on both sides.
The cranked mess looks epic, they have the javawiki on jugglingdb but since its not back up yet i cant give you the link. MMSTD siteswaps all look so fun
okay, my 3b high-low works the other for 3 or 4 cycles now
i do a big 'wind up lots of circles one way then do the same back the other way' thing out of mills incorporating rubensteins, reverse windmill, normal windmill, shower, 522 and 7131.
i can only run one of the 441 mills (the one with the u ball as the first 4).
i've been told to work on the others as it should help tighten up my 4b mills which is horrible at the moment :sad: but one thing at a time though - cross-arm fountains are my current molehill...
mmstd makes my head hurt - there's a bunch of videos that some bloke made based on this notation somewhere.
hold on and i'll try and find it...
yep here you go: http://dromaludaire.free.fr/mmstd.zip
