Posted:I have done a search and a lot of the old links are dead and both Yahoo and Google are being extra crap and just giving me info on the aerospace industry.

(Oh yeh get to the point Minty)

I am seriously considering buying some aerotech Glow Meteor Pros but want more info on them before I dig deep.

So can any of you lovely peeps give me any info on them like durability how well the links to the chain hold out, damage when smashed against hard objects (i.e. head damage to head and poi) battery life and so on.

Plus your opinions on the effect they give would you suggest using anything else. I already own a pair of beamers and am quite happy but just want something more.

And last of all can you give me some links to sights that sell them.


before i met those lot i thought they'd be a bunch of dreadlocked hippies that smoked, set things on fire ,and drank a lot of tea but then when i met them....oh wait (PyroWill)

Posted:i have some second hand swinging clubs now biggrin

with attached finger loops for poi'ing with!

how much did it cost you to get them serviced mr chuckney?

they are red and yellow, but yes you can get them in a range of colurs, but you would have to buy them customised, and white and blue are the most expensive ones, plus uv...

but i would deffo wait for the illuminati to come out, they will be so amazing in comparison, i woudl not be supprised if arotech redesigned ther poi again!

Posted:Hey Tobi, dunno if you remember but you played constantly with my Aerotech Glo Metoer Pro's at Sheffield, (I compensate for being crap at spinning by buying expensive equipment wink ) so anyway since no one has answered at least this question yet, the links on the aerotechs dont last long because they dont give you any :P they literally just give the glo's and thats it do you not remember making me a handle out thing of Duballstar's shoe laces in sheffield?

I may be coming to the manchester spin on friday in which case I will let you and Havokist both have a play with my pair.

Havokist you can get pretty much any colour you want but speak to them on the phone and theyw ill tell you how much it costs, the most expensive colour u can get i think is white or yellow, white i think, but then again white isnta colour is it before someone checks up on me. Mine are Red and Blue and look great i think, the best thing about them is when both are on u get red,blue adn the mix bit is purple, looks purdddyyyy, check out my gallery, i think i have a pic in there on the 4th page or something of them.

Posted:My glometeors were both broken for different reasons (note to self- don't try 'fixing' things you don't really understand, and REALLY be sure you're fixing the one thats damaged- DOH!)

I was charged 20 per piece, which I thought was pretty reasonable considering what I'd done to one of them (no snapped shafts here though).

Blue and Red is oooLd though- gotta gt white with something or blue with maybe green

or blue and white...

heheheheheh

That is the one thing that guarantees I will get angry with whoever is using my toys, who smash them together sooo hard as they obviously think Aerotech would only make a product that you have to smack to get to work.
