Reviewer: Jude from United Kingdom The nicest fire poi I have played with so far. The weight is wonderful and a great work out - not so good for fast spinning as you need very heavy chains to support them, but lovely slow arcs and good for hyperloops as well. Mighty fine.
Am I spinning or doing a workout?
Reviewer: Polarity from United Kingdom Very heavy, but they burn for a very long time, make a lot of noise, and have big tails of fire.
Spinning quickly to fast music just isn't possible, unless you want your arms to come off. I'm going to be adding talc to my spinning kit, as it's easy to get blisters doing several burns with these in one night.
Not recommended for anyone who's inexperienced, as they hurt a lot if you hit yourself, and due to the size of the wicks a lot more precision is required for some moves, or they can end up tangling, or bouncing off each other and flying at you.
If you've got the stamina and experience to spin these though they're very satisfying.
Fantastic fire poi!

Yes, these are large, heavy poi. These were my second set of fire poi after the 2.5" wekas, and I spent a couple weeks spinning these without fire to build muscle. (And I'd been spinning for fifteen months.) They WILL give you blisters when you start using them. But they are TOTALLY worth it. Between six and seven minutes of burn time with beautiful, massive flames! I wouldn't recommend wraps though. I did some double leg wraps and had bruises on my legs for a week. I also wouldn't recommend them as your first set of fire poi. But if you're not afraid to put some work in before you burn them, they are VERY rewarding. They will very easily become your favorite set of fire poi. They are simply a very solid set of fire poi without any gimmicks.
