Posted:Either electroglo poi or glowstick poi would be a nice thing to tackle before entering the wonderful world of fire. Electro/glowstick stuff definitely dazzles non-spinners because it leaves trails of light (circles, if you will, haha) in their eyes and makes the performance look like it flows more. Make sure that once you spin electroglo and glowstick that you get used to different weights before moving on to fire though. Wicks can be quite heavy, so it's nice to have the experience with extra weight beforehand.

Posted:Beaming poi are a great substitute for fire poi.They do have a nice effect and have the weight to get you ready for fire poi.

Though be wary of the Evil Death Poi.

Posted:naw... glowsticks are just glowsticks.
Sold at camping stores/KMart/Target/Megalomart... whatever. They're plastic and filled with glowing liquid and sell for a bit over $1 a piece if you shop online.

Electroglo are much more complicated electroni contraptions that are obviously reusable many times and sold here.

Posted:If you want to talk about some nice light trails then screw the electroglo,go for the beamers.I was at a club in New Haven a couple hours ago and a photographer took a pic of me spinning a 5 beat weave with a digital camera.It literally looked like someone took a red pen and scribbled all over the picture.Seeing that gave me a new appreciation of beaming poi.

BEAMERS F***ING RULE!!!!!!

Posted:glowage toys pop up yet again, seems like that search button hardly ever gets used anymore.

anyways glowtoys are kewl, good alternative for fire.

electroglo poi= kewl, i rate them, but not heavy enough for me.

beaming poi= fantastic, a must, you'll love them.
still prolly one of my favourite toys.

photons= crap, too light pointless, uness your a raver. even then, nuff said.

aerotech poi/ meteor= fantastic, if you can afford them. there isnt any thing better on the market. the meteor heads work better than the poi heads as the battery pack is at the bottom end.
costom colors, 2 colors in each poi, multi programable. retail 150 a pair

aerotech swinging cubs= i own some so i am biased. buy some. retail 215 a pair

cheap alternative that a lot of spinners do in the UK, but 2 aerotech strobeing globalls, put them in a little bag [clear / or netting] attach some string or chain, there you go... a little heavier than beamers but you get 2 colors multi programabe. retailing around 100 a pair maybe a little more.

anyways thats my two cents.
be kewl....

Posted:For all you spinners in the States,PK should have mentioned that the English pound is about $0.60 more than the US dollar.So the Aerotech poi and meteors are around $220.00 a pair.

Aerotech's f***ing rock though.I got to use Dom's at the DECOM and they are great.Any of you who don't have a clue as to what we are talking about click here Aerotech

If I ever get my shit together I am so getting a pair.

By the way PK I found a use for photons.Just clip'em on your beamers.As NYC said they look right bitchin.
