Posted:Hey, sorry to be posting so many questions, but this is the last one.I have poied for one and a half years, all the time anticipating that "Someday, I'll be doing this with fire!"SOMEDAY HAS ARRIVED.

I just got my first set of fire poi from the HOP shop, and searched for all the rules concerning how to break in and store them. Keep them stored in fuel, eh? Do you store the whole head of the poi (metal and all) in fuel, or unwrap the kevlar and keep it soaked?That's all I need to know, I'll learn the rest.

That being said, I must say that all you people have gotten me to this point; through this website and the discussion threads, I always had good advice. I love you all so much right now *clutching new pois while writing*, and I will make a kickass video right quick to further express my gratitude. No longer will I be a boy, but a man.Noah
