Posted:Ive decided to buy another set of tailed poi and sew some led's into the tails so I can get tailed LED poi, the other thing about them is I sort of need the tails to be a certain colour really to try and get the most glow out of the led's. Preferably im looking for some tails that are white, or another sort of plain colour. Does anyone know a shop (online) that sells tail poi the same(ish) kind of colours? All I can find are those ugly neon yellow/orange colours wich are abit yuk arnt they really.

I hate them.

Posted:i don't like kiwidos step - they're too noisy, the head is a funny shape, colours are mixed and also rubbish, they have a big logo on them, the tails tangle too easily, the tails fray...

need i go on?

admittedly, kiwido may have changed design since i last span a set but i'm pretty sure you can't get them in white anyway, which is wht this thread is about innit?

good luck with your modding joe smile

Posted:When all else fails make your own. That's what I did, since I needed tails in green, blue and purple.

The nice thing about kiwido's is that they DO make all that noise. It's good when you are doing a show that does not allow for fire, it gives the performance an added touch.

Posted:lol true I should make my own, however im lazy and will probably make a mess of them. If I feel adventurouse and want to make another pair with diff leds on then i'll make the poi myself, but for this first test im gonna buy.

Still havnt gotten around to it yet lol.
