Posted:Those are fire-ropes or snakes

They're bascially fire poi with wicking instead of chain - usually either thick (25mm) kevlar rope or thinner kevlar rope plaited together. You still need to leave a small bit of chain before the handle so you don't burn your hand though smile

Try a search for "snakes" or "fire ropes" for more info smile
