kverens: Basically, it is an outside cascade with an isolation, but it ends up that you have two balls forming elliptical orbits around the isolated ball.
ferret: I usually go from a 3 ball fold down to a 3ball cascade and directly into this Iso. Always a Show Stopper, as it bends their minds every time.
juggledo: I like to expand this move by adding full orbits with each of the balls, and with a little "body english" it makes for a pretty variation.
kverens: Okay - to learn, try with just two balls. Place the ball you will isolate in the right hand, on the fingers. The non-isolated ball is in the left hand, also on the fingers. Now, bring the left hand to the right, so the right-hand-ball is level with the left palm. Pass the ball onto the palm, keeping the isolation. Keep the non-isolated ball travelling to the right and around the back of the isolated ball so the isolated ball ends up on the fingers, and the non isolated ball is in the palm. At the same time, move the right hand forward so the palm is next to the left fingers. Pass the isolated ball onto the right palm, keeping the isolation. now just move both balls forward to the fingers (keep the isolation!) and you are back in the start position. Then, learn it with three.
