Posted:High i was going to make my own poi fire heads. i wanted to make a cathedral head, and was wondering how much wick i would need to buy. i know someone who bought there fire poi from here, and they bought the cathedral head poi from here. i was wondering does anybody know what length of wick approx is on each poi on the ones sold on this site? so i can use that as a guide, because i want to make mine slightly larger.

Posted:I actually just finally got the answer to the "how much wick to use" question. Apparently 4 feet of wick is the average small wick size, 6 feet is the average large wick size. Not sure about the yardage on the HoP wicks.

Posted:The HOP cathedrals have 1200mm of 65mm wide x 3.2mm thick kevlar each.
or 4 ft of 2.5" x 1/8" for each head.

Remember that there is two main thicknesses of wicks. There is also a 1.6mm or 1/16" thickness and if you use that you would need twice the length to get the same mass as the hop wicks (eg 2400mm or 8ft)

Hope that helps

Regards
