LED Sock Poi are a great options for learning to use Poi while still being stunningly beautiful. The wideness of the socks creates more drag through the air meaning this is slower then normal poi making learning the basics or leaning new tricks much easier.
Yes your LED sock poi are meant to have the hole in the side of them, this is so you can swap the Poi weight or LED product around with other Poi weights or LED products to help them suti you as best as possible. The sock poi do not have handles, most spinners either just hold onto the sock tail, tie a small knot to hold onto or even tie a loop into the sock to help with holding the sock poi.

Eye safety around LEDs
The output power of LEDs has increased incredibly over the past 10 years. We love bright LED Poi, however you should not remove the LED unit and stare at the raw LED source as with all powerful lights this can hurt and in some cases damage your eyes. It is the same as holding a light torch close to and pointing into your eye.
The LED Poi trail effect
You will see a lot of pictures with circular light trails behind the LED Poi, just like a comet tail. For a camera to get a good night time photo it will use a highly sensitive light setting or a long exposure light setting. The longer the camera exposure the longer any light trail will be. Some people spend a lot of time trying to get the right camera settings and exposure time to create the perfect LED Poi picture. The human eye also has a natural light exposure setting with the iris. The darker your spinning area becomes the larger the hole in your eye gets, letting in more light, and then you will begin to see that trail effect. The faster you spin your poi the longer the trail will appear. However unlike a camera your eye has a limitation to how long the LED trail will be.
Looking at people spinning poi is delightful and filled with wonder. With beautiful trails of color swirling around and dancing with the person within.
Now imagine what it is like dancing to your favorite music where the flow of the LED poi is a colorful extension of the wonderful person you are and will be.
