Posted:I really thought they were total shite.

I bought two sets and turned them into poi straight away (just ask simian and bovril ;-))

some of the shiznitz you can do with them is really really silly though...

and i do think they work better as poi.

or juggling balls.

or anal beads.

or anything as long as they aren't astrojax.

And you would know then sweetie? Aren't they a little big and far spaced for that? Second thought, don't answer that! wink

I played with them in the store, shrugged it off and found something better to spend my money on. I can rig balls at home to do the same freakin thing. Just didn't do it for me.

Posted:they can be fun, but i got bored after a lil while. every so often i pick them back up. the led ones are the best tho cause they're fun to watch in a dark room. i heard that they're making or have made sound ones too? i'd be interested in checking those out.

I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Posted:They are cool for just how simple and untechnical they are (it seems you can just kind of go nuts and they do whatever you want) But the lack of challenge makes them boreing quickly. I played with them all summer (they really are fascinating when your really under the influence of various substances)

Although I keep feeling like putting some serious effort into it because I figure theres realms of crazyness you can do with them people haven't really discovered yet, but they are just so boreing and (boreing looking) that they don't hold my attention. Kids seem to love them though. I figure the astrojax company had better come up with a bunch of other skill toys before the fad dies (and they go out of business)

Posted:from your posts here jon i'm guessing you have absolutely no skill when it comes to astrojax then...? ubblol

admittedly they are hard but so is juggling and people do silly things with that!
a large amount of control and hence some ridiculous tricks are possible with these things - there's a lovely lad that visits here from time to time that can do things with astrojax that'd make you go eek
and it has nothing to do with using them as anything apart from their intended use wink

i got some but i gave up trying to make them do good things and learnt to juggle instead rolleyes

Posted:i've play'd with a frind's astrojax. a LED one. it was good fun the hour i had it, but i realise it can be boring after a while. but at least i learnt the "swith the ball your holding with the other ends ball". and its quite fun to see how the fly in the air.
to my point: if you get three set, you could probably juggle with them. it would be damn hard, but it would be frickin awsome! 9 small glowing balls, with move in a pattern of endless variations. :drool:

it's you friend!

Posted:Don't understand you, guys. Just letting them flip around is definitively boring, but you have to do a lot of exactly boring work to get them where they do what you want. And after that point, it's fantastic, all this physics hanging around ;-).

But I'm not good at it .... shrug ... not enough practise.... they live their own life in my hands ;-)

Posted:I just bought some cause they're pretty and shiny. And fun to play with, my workmates who usually ignore my toys turned out all the lights and closed the doors (and nearly killed some computer screens).

Reading this thread is so funny, some of the "anyone can do this" is exactly what "proper jugglers" say about poi and staff. Toy fascists, all of ya wink
