Light spinning

I've been having a blast learning light spinning (I don't want to call it poi, because I think that's disrespectful to the Maori tradition.)

I found out the LED spinners I got were too light (only 25g) so I went to the dollar store and got some light wands and some super balls, which I turned into more things to spin. I also got some lacrosse balls.

I've been using the stripped ones mainly because they have a night weight and only hurt a little when they it me. Youtube lessons have been very helpful. I feel like I'm already able to do a lot, though I'm also sure I look horrible doing it. I'm looking forward to getting smooth. It's still super fun to take long exposures with what I can do.
