I am using Poi Chains and would like to know how i can make my tails longer. On the website photos, the fire tails of the performers are really long.

Kind Regards

What do you mean by 'tails' on poi? Are you using fire chains or fabric poi?

Posted:what you are seeing on the photos are the camera effects, basically they slowed the shutter speed down of the camera to allow 1/2 to1 1/2 beats or more in to each picture. some were done on high quality digitall cameras (which i still have no idea how to get good pics from) or normal film cameras that have adjustable shutter speeds. hope that helped!!

also you might want to try to do a search im sure there has to be several topics on this already..good luck!!

Posted:...but surely it must be the fuel ur using!!! maybe i can slow down the fire if i was in zero gravity? the ISS has more oxygen than they need! I can spell antipodean! sparkly poi cages dun hold fuel too well.
