Posted:These little lights are incredibly fun to swing around, but they've got those crystals on the end that are always flying off, breaking, or doing other random badness.

Has anyone discovered that they work fine without crystals or found a model that doesn't have the crystals at all?

Posted:I never used the attachments with the Rav'ns because I figured they wouldn't last.

I don't have a comparison for how well they work without vs. with, but I have no complaints about using the Rav'ns without the attachments.

Folks still think they're pretty cool and leave decent tracers.

Many of the folks who were in Kent last month saw mine and a couple even commented...so yeah I'm fairly sure they'd look just as cool, and work just as well without the attachments.

Posted:Get 2 spent glow sticks and empty them out/clean them out. put the raven in the end pointing up and the whole glowstick will light up! it's a six inch long rav'n!


Sadly, I can't take credit for that idea. But it's a great one. I still haven't quite figured out a way of affixing the light in the end of the glow stick (not a durable way that I like anyways), but if you figure it out, it looks great!

Posted:Ahh so u tried it andy , all i use is electric tape to attach them to end of the glowstick, it holds them nice a secure and they can be easily taken off to change battereis,

Had mine for ages and they still aint broke yet,there a good idea for some decent electric poi that look nice.

Posted:Coolness, i think i have some tape that would be appropriate for that. I just didn't want to get the lights icky with tape residue...


But I think that's probably the single best "homemade led poi" idea I've heard just because it's so simple. And you can do it with any kind of little key ring LED thingy.

Posted:They also look cool if you poke a hole on a ping pong ball and stick the light end in there. Hold on with clear sticky tape. Really disperses the light, gives you a small globe that looks really cool. Depends on how much tape you use to how fragile it is.
