    I love the wikipole site! It’s fantastic!

    That said, I’ve seen some moves on there with no pictures and I’m wondering what the moves actually look like. Here’s a list of the ones I have no idea on.

    Black Widow
    Devil Drop
    Electric Slide
    Extreme Taylor
    Nose Breaker
    Flatline Thigh Hold
    Forward Ankle Release

    If anyone has pictures, or can tell me the approx second count in a video, that would be ideal! Thank in advance for the help!

    Oooh the mystery moves frustrate me so much HAHAHA! I’m like "Ooohhh that sounds so cool! What is that?!" and then there’s no pic. Hahahaha and I get ridiculously obsessed with wanting to know what it looks like, LOL!

    I can help with some of yours though:

    – Nose breaker is an drop from an inverted crucifix at the top of the pole, to (the same position) right at the bottom.
    – Chopstix is this

    I’m guessing that Forward Ankle Release is what the guys on the pic in this thread ( are doing

    The nose breaker is an inverted drop stopping short before you actually hit the floor.

    The Duchess has a picture up.  It appears to be the Flatline Scorpio, but you put your hands on your butt and push up.

    The Electric Slide I believe is just a Back Slide to the floor, but I may be off on that.

    And I thinnk the Eagle is what Felix Cane is doing here:

    The taylor is an outside leg hang but pole is in front of your shoulder instead of behind.

    I would imagine that the extreme taylor is either similar to this one, or possibly a half marley

    And the Duchess has a picture…I know it as The Charley Jade!!!

    I've always wondered where these moves get their names.  The Dangerous Brian has to have a story behind it 🙂

    Not sure if it's relevant but 'Dangerous Brian' is the name of a British television character from about 15 years ago. 😉

    @ salubivires:  Interesting!  I always wondered if there was someone named Brian who did the move first, but the TV character would sound more likely 🙂

    It is a misspelling.  It is supposed to be Dangerous Brain.

    lol – I always thought it was the "Dangerous BRIAN" !!!!!  I call it the "reverse thigh hold" because well you're reversed and holding with your thighs.

    Chopstix is an upright jade.  The electric slide is a combo move I believe made popular by Katie Coates…it's been awhile but I think it's a spinning invert – gemini/scorpio switch.  It's awesome!

    Well, whoever put the page up on wikipole spelled it 'brian' – and it's been that way for several years now. So as far as I am concerned it's Dangerous Brian – typo or no typo! Haha!

    I've seen it called dangerous brian in quite a few different places. Perhaps either everyone has copied the same source that misspelt it… or it's just a silly name

    Hi Clinky, there are actually pictures of the Knot in the wikipole (2 variations).

    Black widow, it's actually a stag spin or some called it reverse sunwheel spin.
