Ok, gonna start this by saying I've done the searching, I've read the old posts, I have a pretty good idea what it's all about. I'm not going to ask what it is, or how to do it, or how to change its color.

So here's my issue... because the subject was beaten to death a long time ago most of the links in the old posts are now broken, I'd love to see the pictures of people's rigs but with a few exceptions they just aren't there anymore.
For example: I could not find one unbroken link about Black Bush cages and a general google search just got me a lot of the expected inapropriate content wink .

Anybody got working links I can poke through? (pics of wirewool in action would certainly not be unwelcome either).

you could pm the maker of the black bush poi, the poifamous [Old link].



there's plenty of pics of wirewool in action in the gallery (they don't do justice. it looks proper good)

edit- well, there's one anyway.



well, two. but the one with me in it is really really really crap.



editagain- loads more if you search for "wire wool" rather than "wirewool". doh!

I've got one of my wirewool picks up in the gallery, a few more floating around and a couple videos floating around too.

I think you want pics of the actual cages though if I'm not mistaken? I would take some myself but the chains got cannibalized back into normal firechains shortly after my spin, I'll look through my stuff and see what I can find later

Thanks! I have seen your site before, I remember specifically the flash intro and the sparkley poi in a chimney pictures.



Alas none of the videos would work for me and the cage pics are not up yet.

Will check back though!

ive done a little intro for people who have no idea what fire spinning is, look in 'about us' section and the cage photos should be in there.
