Posted:Hell isn't fun - so you're quite wrong there wink
Although showering the public with burning hot metal is quite hell-ish...

For a better response ( wink ) try doing a search for "Sparkly poi" in the search function here as this has been discussed MANY times. smile

Posted:The thing to be aware of here is the safety issue.As it involves the use of burning steel wool in a metal (spark) cage,it gets seriously hot ,and the sparks travel a lot further than you would expect.Also,it makes sense to only do moves where the poi are moving away from you (forward weave,butterfly,etc)definately not buzzsaw or moves where the molten metal can fly toward you.Anyway,that's my twopennies worth,just be careful!
BTW,it is fun,and can look awesome cool
