Posted: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.

Posted: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.
