Posted:I was wondering what material would be best to use as wick for staffs and poi. I recently found some non-blended kevlar tape, would that work or is it best to go with a fiberglass or cotton blend with the kevlar? As well, would fiberglass tape do the thing too?

Thanx 4 the help!

you can't have a war against terrorism because war IS's not about worshipping fire. its about making the fire want to worship you.
