if they are the same ones that rory (bovmunkee) owns then they are *seriously* when soaked.

i span some of these at glastonbury the year before last.

they had been dipped the night before and kept in a plastic bag in a hot tent all day.

when i lit them, thay still burnt for a good 10 minutes!

for me, they are very much a big flame toy which kind of negates the point of such a long burn time as the weight restricts the movesets i felt comfortable using with them.

the firesnakes look okay.

but i just found these and have fallen in love ubblove

just wanted to share since I'm really excited about them, but I just spun my monkey fists for the first time and dear god I'm in love! They are ridiculously heavy but that just makes it more of a work out and way more interesting than the other set I have. I know this is a dead thread but I wasn't sure where to share this fun news...well I think its fun at least...*sigh* the other good news is that by spinning tonight I've gotten another person interested in spinning....mwahahah, we will take over the world...
