Posted:How come the Poi 2.5" monkey fist set is 47 but you can get the same thing with leather handles for 48.

Or am I missing something. You do only need the heads and the chain set?

Posted:are you talking about in the HoP shop?

beleive if or not without actually eplaining where you are buying from it can be hard for us to understand where you're coming from and make it difficult to help you wink

also, next time you might want to put this in the help thread / wink

hope i can help once you provide a bit more info

mjk.

Posted:yeah personally IF i did fire poi i'd just buy the head and make the rest myself. finger loops are quite easy to make if you can be bothered.



i'm not exactly sure which ones you mean, as i work in $ not pounds, but if you mean this one and this one then the difference is one has wire and one has chain. is that what you were looking for?



if not it might help if you could throw in a link so i know exactly which ones you are talking about, although its like am and i'm probably going to go to bed soon, i'm sure someone will be able to help you out.

Posted:ubblol it appears you've found a convenient deal. yeah buying the wicks and the chains/fingerloopps seperately appears to mean you get a good discount on leather finger loops. like you said, thats all you need.

in the words of lock stock "its a deal, its a steal, its sale of the century!"

perhaps they can do it that way cause most people are lazy and just buy the kit premade.
