this is how all companies should handle their business, awesome. I was already considering them for my first pair of fire poi (still researching materials) and this is good to hear.

anyway, my randomness from the day for this thread: I now know how to tie bowline knots, just one more way my life has been enhanced thanks to poi. nothing else has kept my leashes from coming undone, but these seem to be holding steady, which makes me very happy.

Posted:Haha yeah they're great! Their customer service is like on the same level as HoP which is amazing. Except they take more custom things. I've even asked them to make my cuts as even as possible and they would come out perfectly even.

Posted:So last night I got called a ni***r while going for a walk and spinning poi. It was clearly directed towards me as nobody else was around when they drove by. I yelled obscenities back, the whole thing was very confusing.

Posted:Got some fancy 6g organic earrings today. Bought one and got the match for free since they had been sitting in the case for a bit as they weren't quite the same but since the are hand carved this is not a problem. Can't wait to get up to that size now!

I also cannot wait to get back to my apt in a week and have my first set of flowlights waiting for me!!!

Posted:Depends on where you are tying it, and if you want it to move. A bowline forms a closed, non-slipping loop.

I did some sort of weird square knot, possibly related to bowline on my flowlights. I would probably just go with two half-hitches and a doubled leash if I had to remake them.
