Posted:I've started to incorperate numerous and frequent throws in my fire spinning routine, and finger loops are becoming obsolete. I have my fingers in them at the start of my spin, and slip them out just before a throw. I find it impossible to get my fingers back in without doing a complete stall of the poi, and take a good 3 seconds to put them back in... I usually just hold on to the outside of the loops/triangular metal quick link until the end of my spin.
i'm trying to think of a good alternative, but I'm failing miserably. I need something that I can easily slip on and off, as well as get back on after a throw. Alternatively, I need to find something I feel a bit more comfortable doing wraps and hyperloops with, without slipping my finger in and out of it. I was thinking about some sort of metal or plastic handle instead of a loop, but I can't exactly think of what.
If anyone has suggestions, also note that it must have a bit of weight to it. In order for throws to function properly, there needs to be a counterweight to the head in order for the chains to do at least one full rotation around it.

Posted:What about a single key ring at the end..? Should be fairly easy to slip into and out of...
