Posted:Single Triangular quicklink

Price per unit: GBP 2.17 eek

This would be exspensive at half the price imho

60p would be more like it, but this would have a nock on effect that the loops would have to drop in price as not even HoP could try and charge ~5 for 2 bits of nylon



There seems to be an 800% markup on most stuff - or am i just out of touch as to what bits of metal cost?

This could be really profitable..



I remember thinking that about buying glow sticks mail order and selling them at festivals......thankfully i never got round to it smile



My brother used to do that.
He earned good cash on it for 15-year old.
He got himself a new mobilephone for the money.

Posted:I am going to have my 2 cents worth and just say that i find Mals wicks to be of the best quality. And price is fine, you pay for what you get and when i saw the lovely colour of the kevlar and its nice tight weave i saw it was better than what i have on my original staff and wand and so i was more than satisfied and i will in future still buy off him. Thanks Malcome, I am really enjoying my new fire toy!

Posted:my 4" tubies are still going strong, over a year after i bought them. And i've put those wicks through a fair bit. they've been used with different fuels, scuffed on the floor, you name it. and, apart from some fraying on the bottom, they're still great.

No complaints from me at all biggrin

Pair of beaming poi with BALL CHAIN

Other colours available

Price per pair: USD 73.85



But still....beaming poi 73 dollars? I think thats abit steep, but everything else seems like its well priced.

In norwegian kroner, 73 usd isn't that much.
But that's because the usd is weak compared to nkr.
So shopping from us really pays off these days. ubbrollsmile

Posted:ok...

Beaming poi are as close to indestructable as you can get, from what i've heard. they take common, AA batteries, and they are long lasting. with 12 months warranty.

what more would you like for that price?
