Posted:hiya I bought ball chain ones with small heads and double finger loops. I've only burned them a few times but love them totally. They sure beat the tennis balls I was using before. I would love to make a pair that I can swap with my tennis balls or glow sticks but I get confused wioth the laguage peopel us. What i need is some lovley person to make me a pair
Posted:I'm new to fire poi too. Question: What's the difference between small poi and big poi? I have a set of cable fire poi (although it seems that most people here prefer ball chain... I'll have to look into that). They seem fairly heavy but I've actually found them easier to spin than my practice poi. I feel like the lighter poi requires too much effort. Maybe I just got used to the heavier poi or maybe I'm just lazy.
As far as fuel goes I mostly use plain old kerosene. I've also tried lamp oil and never got that to work but I may have been doing something wrong. Also I've only tried the lamp oil on juggling torches so that may make a difference. [edit to remove one possibly hazardous suggestion]
