Posted:So I was at the club tonite, practicing away... and I finally started to get Thread the Needle. Well, I keep doing it to try and get it smooth, and all of a sudden one of the poi is gone, all I have is a string. I think at first that the tail just fell off, but no, the string pulled the whole way out of the tennis ball. So now I'm stuck with my socks until I can get a new set of tailed ones in. I think I might get the buzz poi or the ultimate performance poi this time... frown frown frown frown frown frown frown

What exactly do I have to light on fire to get you to notice me?

Posted:That happened to me with my old Kiwido poi, but then I did used to weight them down with pennies. The swivel on them broke and sent my poi flying across my room.

Moral of the story is, socks rock. biggrin

Posted:LOL, I'm guessing you have never seen the simpsons then... It was a reference to the show. there was this one episode where the police officer's son is carrying around this chewbacca action figure. well halfway through the episode, the action figure gets snapped in half, and he says " I broke my wookie"

What exactly do I have to light on fire to get you to notice me?

Nice one getting the thread the needle, even at the cost of a broken poi, I reckon it's probably worth it.


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
