Posted:iv been doing strings with glowsticks on the end for quite some time now. but i was wondering how much better (or worst) to swing a pair of performance or zuni poi. also how the poi differs in wieght compaired to stix while swinging would also be much apreciated.------------------bring light into the night
Posted:Im not the expert or anything.....but im pretty sure that there is a difference between the weight; maybe 1/2 a pound or two???But what do I know!! Non-Https Image Link In my opinion, I think spinning poi is a beautiful art! The beautifulest thing ive seen in years! And no doubt under the UV: ITS EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL!------------------ Non-Https Image Link [This message has been edited by xxxccess (edited 07 February 2001).]

Posted:Hooray for Poi!! Ya, it is theraputic eh? I've regained my agility and patience factors since Poi, (and staff, and Devil sticks and whatever else I can get my paws on!!!). I'd forgotten how much I love to play, and that its the kind of excersise I click with (as opposed to gyms/structured stuff).I like to make my own toys. Recently I visited family/friends and made my brother, and a couple friends some nice sort of soft practise poi, with the possibilities of interchangeable heads, so when they get to the point of wanting to do fire, (or glo stix), they can make a fire head to go on the chain.
