Posted:Mr Sanity,Yep, it's us (Incendium), Scarab, Gooble Warming, or Bec & Elke who run the Moon Fests in Shorncliffe (moon_fest@hotmail.com). If you want to buy them from Scarab, be quick because inside information is that their supplier pulled out (for good reason) and so they wont be stocking fore equipment quite soon.raevon

Posted:Yes... Elke and I sell all things fire (and non-fire as well) including poi... (Thanks for the plug Mr Draevon!)We will custom make them up, or supply the "standard" equipment just email moon_fest@hotmail.com or call me 3969 2189...Fire poi are AUS $45 with good solid construction, and obviously made with kevlar wick...(PS Anodised Metal Staves also start at $45, and kevlar wick $20/m or discounts for large quantities...)Don't forget to come to Moon Fest (if you haven't been already) - next one is March 10th...Happy Twirling all!

Posted:At the risk of being called a spoil-sport, I'd advise making your own. I've made both practive poi with tennis balls and performance poi with fire wick without any blistering problem. Just take the setup you've got and attach some leather grips for your hands. Adam Rice has a good recipe at http://www.fire-gear.com.
Happy spinning,Diana

Posted:i totally agree with Diana esp. if you are just after a nice practise set; make your own set, it's more fun and you won't need any unusual tools if it's just a practise set you are making...if you want comets or fire poi then it's another story...what's wrong with tennis balls

? i think they are great; get a better piece of cord and some leather handles and you are in business!!!
