Posted:They look like they'd spin pretty much like sock poi, but with a different handle.

I've currently got some fire poi made from rope, they spin really nicely.
You just have to be careful not to soak them for too long, or the fuel wicks up into the handles.

As a point of interest, people who don't speak english as a first language read this forum and find it very difficult to read posts that include text like this

Typing out words in full instead of using txt abbreviations, as well as running your post through a spell checker before posting it would be fantastic smile

Don't mind me, just passing through.

they flow really smoothly n u can speed up without much effort but also slow them down really smoothly as well.

i used em for a bit last friday night down at the fridge. it's cool that u can attach glow sticks at the bottom of them. biggrin makes them extra purdy tongue

Posted:Perfectly legible to you, yes.

Not to lots of other people who find posts like those very difficult to read. It's just common courtesy to type out words in full, it's hardly any extra effort - the letters are all laid out on the keyboard waiting to be used.



Also - have a read through this quote, taken from the forum guidelines/rules page. Emphasis is mine.
