<-- Third poi down. Named "Wrapper Poi")
Its an interesting concept and i was just wondering wether they are reviewed to be well good or not.

I like the idea. i might make my own or order some

Posted:"hese poi wear the leashes out before the wicking does"

and at $60 I'd say that you'll have to replace the whole poi everytime they die instead of just the heads.

Nice concept but there's far cheaper and better methods you could employ to avoid exposed metal if you really keen on wrapping all the time.

I'd suggest making your own, it's not that hard really. You could just tie monkey fists into the end of 1/4 or 1/2 inch rope and spin those

Posted:kinda.....it's not tied 'to' monkey fists, you'd have to tie the monkey fist onto the end of a long peice kevlar rope and cut the other end to whatever length you prefer your poi to be. So it's only one peice of rope....get me?
