I just bought a pair of Monkeyfist poi from this site, but it doesnt say what the core is made out of. Does anybody know?

I know the old ones had a core of kevlar wrapped round wire that then protruded from the top. The new one's are probably similar.

The newish design Kevlar Monkeyfists have a hollow wooden block in the centre, that allows the eyebolt to spin freely. weavesmiley

A bulky knot to make the end of a rope heavy.

Most common use in spinning is to make a set of 'meteors' (one cord weighted at both ends which looks like a combination of staff and poi when spun) and as a large wick ends for fire poi.
