Posted:I don't think they hurt that much if you hit yourself with the tubes (I've had more bruises from tennis balls).
However.... They are however very light and easy to spin very fast. I often forget that they are steel cable and most of the pain comes from whipping yourself with the cables.
No way near as fun as fire, but they'd good to practice with when you're home alone or drunk (very pretty infact after a night in the pub ). They also look, from a spectator point of view, apparently, better than fire as you can see the trails a lot more clearly. I'm told that watching first hand looks more like 1 second time lapse photography.
As for pictures, there's about 30 in my photo album . Personally I don't think the pictures look as good as fire.
