Posted:Hmmn, probably you guys would be the best to ask this question to. Which ones are brighter/better for the stage: HOP's raimbow glowpoi or the oggpoi? I mean for the meantime until the Hyperlights are finished- they seem like they might be worth the wait of holding out on the new Aerotech's.

hey hi nolly,

i wanna ask you about tha green sock pois glowin... can you upload a video of them or tell me a little about how to use it.. cuz i've just ordered 2days ago and i'm new about these.. biggrin

Sure! Can't really upload a video, but theyre pretty simple to use smile The HOP glow poi are made up of 2 items: the empty sock itself, and the glow balls. There's a slit in the sock so you can take the balls out if needs be.

On the balls themselves there's a small cap which unscrews to show the batteries. when theyre shipped there will be peices of cardboard inbetween the batteries (to stop them going flat in shipping) - so unscrew the caps and take them out. Replace the batteries (facing them downwards as they were packaged) and then replace the cap. To turn on, screw the cap a little bit tighter, and the ball will glow!

The green ones come with Green socks, so you get a really vibrant green glow that shines down the sock a little way too! Awesome around glowsticks etc. The blue ones and white ones come in white socks and look equally cool. The rainbow ones are my faves, though - they come in white socks and the glowballs slowly fade from blue through to red through to green etc etc, making for a really cool display.

Theyre easy to spin - just wrap the poi around your hands (I like to wrap them around once then grip them between my index and middle fingers, so its like holding straps) or if you want, tie a knot in the tail end, for easier gripping. You'll be having fun in notime biggrin

Hope this helps!

We want a band, that plays loud and hard every night-
That doesn't care how many people are counted at the door-
That would travel one million miles and ask for nothing more,
Than a plate of food and a place to rest.
