Drex's Tech Poi Blog #341: Horizontal archer's weave

A nifty trick I picked up from a Coloradoan spinner as I hung out in LA after IgNight--basically taking the archer weave we all know and love and putting it into a horizontal context. As I've been playing around so much with atomics these past few months, I decided to see if I could make this arrangement work as an atomic weave and was delighted to see it was indeed possible. Try doing the full body tracer from shoulder to shoulder!

Drex's Tech Poi Blog #244: crosser archer weave

Starting with a crosser that unwraps and rewraps via antispin and extension, this trick involves essentially freezing one of the hands on the non-native shoulder to force the other hand to do all the work. In keeping the timing and direction consistent, the result is a body tracer that actually cycles through different positions of an archer weave.
