    Fire Poi is number one weapon of choice for me, though I've dabbled to varying degrees with most of the options.

    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

    :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 :Grin:

    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 :Grin:

    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 :Smile3: here you go: http://dromaludaire.free.fr/mmstd.zip
