Posted:Do you have the ebay link ?

Anyway, yesterday, I saw a crystal ball very spheric with a diameter of over 130 centimeters (51"), very heavy.
There's no point in having such a big thing.
That's the same for poi, staff, etc...
You can build a staff/poi with 10 meters of kevlar, but can you spin it ?

no.

It's not acrylic, it's crystal, and it's way too heavy, and way too large...

The crystal ball: it looks pretty on the table.

As for the giant Poi, never seen Trick Concept's paint-can poi, have you?

The idea behind 'cage poi', as I understand it atleast is it's a large cage with a kevlar covering thus it doesn't weigh alot, but it produces a larger fire ball. Much like the paint can poin from Trick Concepts.
.... Then again I don't spin Poi, I'm just insane. smile


There's a fine line between genius and insanity.

.... I ran away from the genius side.
