Posted:Ok, I was doing an act this weekend and I wanted to twirl my staff and then in the middle of the act pick up my pois.

Problem: the finger loops on my pois tend to collapse and I have to fiddle with the things to put them on. Not very exciting for the audience to watch a guy fumbling with his pois.

Solution: Before my act, I stuck some of those cylindrical earplugs in the finger loops. Then when I went to put the pois on, I just stuck my fingers through and the earplugs popped out. The whole switch, in mid-act, took about 5 seconds.
