Posted:i have been spinning fire for about 4 months now and i never really heard of a good way to store my heads when i wasn't using them. what i have been doing is just disconnecting them and putting them in metal cans filled with fuel. is this a good way to store them?
also anything question i have is i was looking to get a set of duel headed poi. how do you store these when not in sure?i have been trying to figure it out but i haven't been very successful.
Posted:I think people in general baby their wicks a bit too much. Remember, you spin these things around, drop them (probably), wrap them against body parts, and light them on fire! They can take a bit of abuse while just sitting unlit. Keeping them in a container of fuel can't hurt, as you already do, but if they're too big to fit in there, just leave them somewhere indoors where the dog won't chew them up. I used to keep mine soaking when not in use, but it was too much of a hassle to keep the fuel from evaporating in the cans, so now I leave them in my room on my desk and I see no increased wear. Your wicks will wear out due to loss of absorbancy from lighting them up far before you'll see the effects of non-fire wear.
Posted:After a burn my poi heads are quickly soaked then left to dry then kept in a tuperware box. Never had any problems and ive made a divider thing to keep the chains and handles separate from the wicks so no soot! I have my chains for nearly a year and they still burn as bright as they ever did!
