Posted:I have seen some discussion lately about people weighing down their glowsticks because they are too light... I couldn't find much on HOW to do it. Any suggestions on how to make them a little heavier?MATT------------------I dreamt that I ate a 10 pound marshmellow and then when I woke up, my pillow was gone!

Posted:well, some times I use 2 glowsticks at each end. also if you hold glowsticks in your hands, (a stick at each end of the string) you seem to get better control

I smell something burning.

Posted:usually what i do is use two different color glowstix on each string, seems to get better weight and looks pretty kool with white and blue, or blue and yellow together, but think of your own combos...p.l.u.r.r.xtremravr

Posted:I like to use small fishing weights with mine, one on either side of the glowstick. It really helps with some of the moves to have a little extra weight, especially if you are using one of those nylon cording or shoestring rigs.------------------Pyromaniac is such a strong word...I prefer "combustionally infatuated" :)

Posted:I squash a lump of plastacine onto the ends of the glowsticks when I'm about to use them, it's not a great method of making them heavier, but it works well enough for an hour of two of spinning------------------We've got a blind date with destiny and it looks like she's ordered the lobster!

Posted:i put this recipe down somewhere but i'll mumble it again. for an easy to make practice poi track down some flat inner bicycle tubes. cut them lengthwise in half and wash them, then cut thin flaps on one side. role this up around a piece of twine and secure in place with rubber bands. it should look kind of like a tennis birdie, on either end of the twine attach a key ring. tie string or chain to one end and twirl, on the other end of the keyring attach the glowstick, ribbons, plastic squid, etc.... walla! a nicely weighted rubber poi ball that is cheap and easy to make.
