Posted:dube juggling in manhattan has themhttp://www.dube.com for where they are...probably somewhat cheaper to buy wick from them and make your own though. renegade juggling IMO has better wick, its thicker and you dont need as much to make a good size castle weave poi wick, however you would have to order it from http://www.renegadejuggling.com
since they are in california. havn't tried home of poi wick yet...Pere

Posted:Dube is pricey but well made stuff. Except I don't really like their fire poi. If you're insistant on buying in person, it's probably the only place in NYC.The store's about the size of my kitchen but fun to play in with all of the crazy juggling stuff. It is a good place to buy (overpriced) kevlar in the city though. At least stop by to see what exists...Enjoy.

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:Yeah, Dube was fun to visit, but not a huge range of poi. They'll knock up custom length wire for you as well.I found their wire pretty stiff, I prefer my wire a little more flexible, but dube's wire doesn't kink easily. The leather handles are pretty stiff as well to begin with, took some working in. I prefer softer leather for my delicate little hands

I've been ordering off the internet for a few years now, from several different countries, and never had a problem as I tend to pick places I've heard good things about. Malcolm ain't run off with my credit card details yet

Posted:In the HOP's list of USA retailers it looks like only Brian Dube is in NY. If you find others please let me know so I can update the list.
