Posted:pantsonfire has the best name on the board!
I know Reg Bolton in Perth has them in his shop, but if he was there to sell them that would be cool. I don't think they're in the HOP shop. Juggle art would have them I reckon as hacky are close enough to juggling balls. Otherwise weave a spherical bag yourself out of kevlar thread and fill it with ceramic beads
Discovered recently that lighter gas refill is nicer to use than kero, as it doesn't splash off on your foot.

Posted:wow! I love hackey sack and have never thought about combining it with fire...that sounds awesome, but would I need some fireproof shoes? I've found that skate shoes are great for hacking, but nothing (i mean NOTHING) beats Adidas Superstars (aka shelltops). On another note, when my school took a trip to France last year, my friends and I did nothing but hack and we got strange looks from les Franais. Have they not been exposed to hackey sack before? such a shame.

Posted:i've been looking for fire hacky-sacks for a while now.. they're awesome fun to play with! Juggleart don't stock them though, for liability reasons i think.
If you know how to crochet, you can just buy the kevlar thread and make one yourself - unfortunatly i don't know how to crochet, i tried to learn the other day but it ended in tears.. :\

Posted:Save ya shoes, latex glo-hackeysacs won't burn ya, and come in colours other than flambe. (red, green, blue.) plus they're filled with clear plastic beads, so these sacs will deform like wigless glam rocker before hurting your head on impact.

Prob is, they're hella fragile! i made a set in an attempt at glo poi - the plastic mesh that held them busted, then the latex busted.

The lesson in this story is that when your latex busts from vigorous overuse, it's time to get safer hobbies.

ya pervert.

Posted:you can definitely buy flaming hackeys..I have bought 3 of them in the past...they seem to fall apart really quickly (like 5-7 sessions) and at AUD$40 each, its an expensive bit of fun...

and before anyone starts, I was totally following all care guidelines with my hacks, and all 3 died in the same approx time...

Posted:Well,

I think they are a brilliant idea too, an old wick came off a mates staff and I proceded to have a bit of a kick around the other day.

T hink the easiest way to make them would be to just make a ball out of some kevlar - try not to leave metal exposed as you make em so you wont get burns.

Posted:My Uncle told me about a game they used to play when they were younger, seems it could be adapted to hackey sacks......

Get some really thick cotton thread, and wind it untill you have a decent sized ball. Soak in metholated spirits, before lighting, then throw it to each other....... the metho burns at a lower temporature, so for catching and throwing back quickly, you're not that likely to scorch yourself...

Looks pretty impressive when you are just playing catch! `

Posted:You can also play fire volley ball with a toilet roll soaked in paraffin. I advise you have buckets of water on hand, and wet your arms and hands first.

Only for the brave and the stupid.

I've only played it 5-6 times cos i couldnt find anyone to play with wonder why?

I recommend very big open spaces too.

Play safe.
