Posted:I have to wait til after christmas until I get my fire poi's. My sister is getting them for me as a present. I've been using sock poi's to practice for the last 2 months. I'm very eager to try fire poi's. My Homemade monkeyfist fire poi's didn't turn out too well. The "fire resistant rope" (or so said the DIY store manager) didn't actualy turn out to be fire resistant, as I found out by the burning plastic rubbery stuff flying off in all directions. Anyway, i'll attempt to get a video or a few picture's of my first proper burn. Stay tuned folks.

The only reason i'm scared of little kid's is because I know in ten year's time they'll be mugging me.....

Aim high and you'll know your limits, aim low and you'll never know how high you could have climbed.

Posted:Hold on a moment... you tied monkeyfists using synthetic rope as wick, then set them on fire?

And you were surprised they melted? umm


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:Fire poi is lame anyway.

But the whole fire resistant thing is really stupid.

Resistant and proof are two different things.

As I learnt with my water resistant torch in the bath. All hopes at pretending to be a deep sea explorer were dashed in one breif short circuit... wink

Posted:white socks with shiny aerotech proballs in them are the way forward, fire poi are overrated.

Aim high and you'll know your limits, aim low and you'll never know how high you could have climbed.

They didn't feel nor look synthetic. But when it was on fire it started to spray in a plasticy kinda way.
