Posted:Okay, I'm thinking I might have to get some of these, but I have a stupid question... how easy will it be to adapt this to my ball chain set up with, say, a key ring? I couldn't really see the top, but it looks like it has a loop built into it that the SS wire goes through... Also, anyone have a weight conversion for 180 grams? Maybe 1.2 pounds? I may be WAY off there...

Posted:Ok, i love them.Malcolm, couple of questions tho:Can you make double headed poi with them? I can see some loops on the bottom of the sticks.Had to ask, cos last week I put two glowsticks on each string, one half way down (1 orange & 1 purple), other at the end of the string (both yellow). Looked absolutely brilliant even when doing simple moves.Ok, one more question.. is the cable permanently fixed to the top or can it be changed for ball chain?And the last one.. how long do the batteries tend to last?Thanks for any help,Tom

Posted:To answer the questions so far.How much? USD$39Conversion to ball chain? Yes the wire could be cut off for attachment to ball chain cords.Glow under UV light? No they glow under battery power only. However the beamers do glow under UV.Can we get our own Whipping Boy? Cloning has not progressed that far yet. Ask Pele about borrowing/renting.Can you make double headed poi with them? Yes, with a little modification to the holes in the ends of each tube I am positive this can be achieved.Battery life? Mine have not stopped yet. Been playing lots. Maybe 10-15hrs.LED sticks from coltronix? Yes will be getting the latest version made from a stronger plastic. However they are still not recommended for twirling/swinging.

May your balls always burn

Posted:I have a pair Identical to Malcolm's set since Early Jan from Juggle art ($95AU)They totally rule.The glo poi is the most durable poi i have, fire toys included. the plastic is VERY hard. you can't bend it. most important of all:They're the *Brightest* non-fire poi available. And PHunky yes, i too have spent hundreds on the best poi to bring to raves - these KILL my best efforts! they're strong enough to fall on and fit in long cargo pockets.PERFECT!!i encourage everyone to buy em. Everyone loves seeing them. Anyone who's seen them reckon the brightness KILL glowsticks! if you shoulder-ride a friend at a rave and spin poi, you will rule!!Very good value toy.------------------"He shall know your ways as if born to them"-Fremen prophecy

They look absolutely fantastic! Pricey tho... I thought I might buy some cheap kids toys and spin them... y'know those imitation lightsabers? Span one of them in the dark and it looked coooool so I might get two... hehe. Anyway, back to the shop... Spin on... T--------------------"Too much television watchin' got me chasin' dreams..."--

Posted:PHL9te, I agree with you on the fact that it aint a small purchase, but I tell ya you get what you pay for. I mean the only wear n tear that my pair have is some slight discolouration from the inside due to the metal twine rubbing on the paper. They are totally durable! I reckon I'm *saving* money cos all my previous glopoi needed replacement eventually. This one doesn't even bend! The second last one i had was a mega painful set of Guatamalan Nite-sacs rigged up as poi (it never survived new years.)All your glopoi are belong to us!------------------"He shall know your ways as if born to them"-Fremen prophecy

Gonna buy some of those glowstick ones pretty soon, but I was talking about the big-ass glowing lightsaber type things at the bottom of the 'glowy stuff' shop page... check them out, if you haven't seen them already- I think they're new in the shop... unless I'm just being slow.

I got my Glow Poi Saturday morning.I got 2 Blue glowsticks, 1 Red & 1 Green....some ball chain & connectors..& I now have some double-headed Glow Poi!!!!They look absolutely awesome!!I can even move the different heads about (at the moment I have the Blue heads on the ends, with the Green and Red half way down).They're quite long at 3 foot 7 inches

Also Drakien said he thinks they're really heavy to spin (I think this is due to the length).Oh, and they kind of resemble nunchucks on chains! Oh well..Might try a get some film of them soon (with a webcam??), but its got to be dark outside (no swinging inside me thinks..)Tom

Posted:OK,And Dom just asked me to explain how I made mine double headed, & I'm bored of my assignment (going very slowly).. so here goes:Stuff: couple of feet of ball chain 2 type A couplings 6 type A heavy duty clasps 2 sets of elctroglo poi (all from HoP shop)& some wire cutters1. I removed the handles from one of the sets of electroglo's. (just slide the wire and swivels off the ring clasps on the handles)2. Cut the ball chain into four equal lengths (I made them all 10 balls long, you can change this but i don't recomend them being any longer 43" poi are long enough, unless you're REALLY tall)3. Attach the two couplings to two of the lengths of ball chain and to the two handles. Attach two of the heavy duty clasps to the other end of this ball chain.4. Attach the rest of the heavy duty clasps to the other two lengths of ball chain.You now (hopefully) have two handles attached with ball chain to clasps, and two lengths of ball chain with clasps at either end.5. Here's where you mutilate your beautiful new poi sets.. well actually you just need to cut the lengths of wire that connect the handles to the glo poi off BUT PLEASE cut them off ABOVE the grasps that finish the loop of wire (ie only cut the single bit of wire)...I WOULD RATHER NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE IF YOU CUT THE WRONG BIT so please ask me to clarify if your not sure but I think it's quite obvious.This leaves you with two handles, two sets of clasps and four electroglo sticks with a loop of wire sticking out of the top.6. I then clipped/attached the handles to the loops at the top of the two sticks that I wanted half way down with the chains.7. Then pull the wire at the bottom of the sticks out a little and clip one of the clasps (on the two end claspy things) to each of the sticks.8. You can then just clip the other two sticks to the other clasps on the end of the ball chain.You now have a set of double headed elctroglo poi.. HOORAY.. and I think they look great..I am thinking of trying to shorten the length of the wire loops at the top of the sticks (cos they stick out a little too much for my liking.. though not as much to upset me) but I'm not sure I can do it properly and don't want to make them likely to break..Anyhow, hope that helps & I hope this post isn't too long but I wanted to be as clear as I could.

Posted:Hi all, the electroglow poi are pretty impressive, but the heads seem fairly long. That's not a criticism, I think they are great and will probably get some soon, but I was wondering what they are like to do wraps with.
