I was wondering what type of fuel is best to use, when spinning pois, to make a tail?
I have been using kerosine and it doesnt make a tail.

you wont be able to make a tail with fire poi.
kero is the only fuel you should really be using for poi, so dont use any thing stupid like petrol!

Maybe if you made a kevlar tail and attached it to your wicks then you would get that effect though I don't know how safe it is.

In the States a lot of people use white gas. It's not as sooty and makes a really nice flame.

Just stick with Kero (Paraffin). And yes the tails which you'll see on pics are just a camera set to High Resolution, to capture more of the image.
