Posted:Everyone knows how to do the cool fireball sart with staff, right? But we poiers are left without any fancy way to start. Something I've been working on lately is the fireball start for poi, it's not as big or impressive as for staff, but I still think it's a good way to start.It's pretty simple actually, all you do is after having lit the poi and not shaken them out, wrap the bottom few centimetres (or inches if you're so inclined) of chain around each other. Then, it's a simple matter of pulling the chains apart relly quickly. Then you get a nice little fireball in the middle.I've only tried this with kero, and it doesn't light all of the little droplets that are sprayed off. Maybe if you used something like coleman's fuel or something it would work better.

Posted:One thing which I saw some ppl do while I was in the states, was to light the non shaken off poi, and then spin the around at arms length so that they were touching the ground. With more flamable fuels, it creates a nice circle of fire to dance in briefly

Hurt my shoulder doing judo...anyway, you know when you spin round poi like... with lassoos? so you get a sphere made out of a rotating arc? this looks... sort of cool... but not really... you can sort of do moves while doing this, looks kinda neat...ooo ooo ooo I know, if you could like join your poi together at the ends, you could do that thingy where you have a string with a whirly bit in the middle and when they're all wound up you pull on the ends and it spins round and goes wheeeeee... it would make the fireball right in your face, but who cares!?!you could like step on one end and do it or hold it above your head... it would work... er but not if you have a swivel joint...anyone understand that?

Posted:Alright Cass, I'll try to explain further:Once your poi have been lit, you wrap the bottom few centimetres of your chains around each other. From there, you pull your arms apart, which makes the chains unwrap themselves pretty quickly. Because they unwrap so quickly, the extra fuel gets flung out, and it lights on fire. It makes a nice (if small) fireball.Blackbird: That sounds like a pretty good idea, it might make it a bit safer because the fire won't be right in your face.
