I've been in the poi community long enough that I've seen several waves of tricks come through that become cool, then passe, then rediscovered all over again.
When I first started spinning, behind the back tricks were one of those tricks that were absolutely essential if you wanted to be taken seriously as a tech spinner. They've lost a lot of that sheen in the past several years but I still see people on occasion doing creative things with these tricks.
I've known people to achieve quite a lot of renown in the tech poi scene in the past 5 years who've never even attemped any behind the back tricks!
If you happen to be one of those people that think Behind the Back tricks are pretty cool, today's video is a compilation of my top 3 favorites!
