Posted:I bought some kevlar rope not too long ago (bout two months) to make some poi and the other day noticed that where the rope connects to the heads both the rope and head has turned very much silver and started to rot and break (which isn't too safe)

Can anyone explain to me why my wicks have done this, and like how to avoid it in future or save my not altogether cheap fire ropes? They have had hardly any use since they soak up about a litre of parafin and I just don't get why this has happened - I'm sure I can't be the only one with this problem so please get back to me if you know whats going on with this frown
