Posted:I use two types of poi currently, my glow stick poi, which the rope is made of shoe lace, and my Ultimate Performance poi, which the rope is made of....... rope.

Anyways when I tangle my poi, I find that instead of trying to untangle them by moving the rope around, an easy thing you can do is simply hold both poi by the ends (the weighted part) and simply pull them away from each other.

Tadda!

It's just a method I developed because my poi got tangled so many times before, i'm glad this made it alot easier for me and I hope it helps you.

Posted:use ball chain and you will cut out 99% of your tangle problems. I use the 8 or 10 gauge for glowsticks, and the 15 gauge for wicks.

Aim high and you'll know your limits, aim low and you'll never know how high you could have climbed.
