After much consideration, I find that the view is worth the asphyxiation.

Posted:i reckon concrete is a good idea

you know it'll hurt, so your body releases adrenealin, so ou become more aware, so you'll probaly hit yourself less biggrin

Posted:I have a pair of cone poi made with tennis balls filled with metal nuts.
They're so, so nice but they really hurt when they hit you.

The obvious solution is to get better quickly so you hit yourself less wink


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

Posted:Beaming Poi!

Honestly, I think Beamers are worse than concrete filled tennis balls cuz at least the balls have rubber on the outside.

Not to mention my Beamers were the first set of poi I owned so they're what I learnt on smile


Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.

Beamers are ACE! I love mine (even though they are now slightly damaged from hitting my skull/knees/shins)

Posted:Pics wouldn't do beaming poi justice. It's not until you've been hit on the head or the knee that you really appreciate beaming poi! And trust me, even if you NEVER hit yourself normally, with beaming poi you will!!!

Just imagine two heavy lumps of very hard plastic with two AA batteries each, spinning at a million miles an hour...
