has anyone tried these or seen them being used, because i would love a set of fabric made sock poi, because i kinda dont like the friction my socks im using have, anyway, i also like to do it in the dark, and i find sock poi are alot easier to do hyperloop tricks with.

Tested and approved? Or just a floppy sack.. ? ubblol

first impressions - very light, strecthy and bouncey.

The socks still need sewing after the glow hacky sack is put in.

I haven't had chance to try them in the dark but i shall post some pictures when i do.

tangles - tend to knot up fairly easily as the fabric is quite thin

shall play some more and then post again.

Mine arrived on Friday so I had a bit of a play over the weekend.

These are my first set of socks so I don't really know how they compare in terms of weight, feel etc etc

They make a trail of green, red and blue dots in the dark, I was at a mushies party on Saturday and they went down well there, it does need to be quite dark to get the effect.

I also ordered a third and tehy look pretty cool juggling in teh dark.

All in all I'd say they were a good buy, I just need to get used to playing with socks

www.dube.com sell the glowing hacky sacks, not sure about the socks.

Any more reviews? I love the glowpoi from Feraltec, but they're STILL unavailable at the moment frown

put them in fishnet stockings - good bouncy factor without being too too bouncy and lets lots of light through

*wonders why Vanize has been playing with fishnets*

has anyone found using them as hacky sacs breaks the internal LED setup? or are they reasonably safe to knock around a bit?

well, if they are the same ones that sista' firewire uses (no idea if they are), then they are fairly durable. she's the one I got the fishnet idea from too...

Are the hacky sacks fairly strong ? I mean ... can they take a fair bit of beating, while not killing you if you hit yourself ?

Do they come in the HOP socks or less stetchy socks?

ive dropped mine a few times while jugglign and they seem to be very robust and dont hurt if they hit you, however one of mine i think seems to bea bit faulty like if u drop it it'll go off then you have to fiddle witht he connector a bit to get it workigna gain, but its too muhc of a hassle to send it back to NZ

i'd say there are a worthwhile investment smile
