Posted:Put the heads and chains, when cold, in a zip lock bag (such as you can by for using in the freezer). I double bag mine to carry them about with me but in the house I store them in the bags inside a tuppa-wear box for the extra anti-oderosity (made up word) factor. I remove my handles before storing so they don't end up all stinky or sooty.

If you have a nice old bag, use that... bonus points if it has an Ohm or a Yin Yang on it wink

Posted:Made myself a stick bag as follows:

Take length of cloth (slightly longer than longest stick) and wide enough to go round sticks with space. Fold in half, sew up lond side.
Fold over top and sew to make channel (or just sew).

As a strap I use a long bootlace tied round the top (holds top shut) and then tied again about 3/4 of the way down. Turn upside down and sling over shoulder!

Am making a waterproof outer layer from Orange PVC and black Nylon (same stuff as used for rucksacks), but am slack/busy so is taking a while.

Presumably you could do similar for poi. I'll probably just add a pocket or 2 to the stick bag when I get mine.

My mate uses a bag for a didgeridoo (god how do you spell that!) confused


A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.
