What do you think? biggrin

This is what they look like..
From afar..
..and the connection..

it's not kevlar;) just practice rope.. 1 cm wide I think.. and they are not as tight as they could be so I expect a bit less in size with kevlar.
they are not really hard to do.. just tightening them up is a bit harder and you need at least 5 m of rope to make them if you don't want to leave any to waste.

Think I should make me some?

Smile.. It confuses people..:)

they look cool, bet they would be heavy as poi... especially the amount of fuel they would soak up.

A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

I'd go crazy from braiding and tightening, not to mention I'd waste a hell of an amount of kevlar:)

There's just no need.

Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water.
Put Water into a cup, it becomes the cup, put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Water can flow, or it can Crash.
Be Water My Friend.

clap clap Would it be possible to make longer chains (like 4 or 5) to create some kind of snake monkey fist hybrid? Those flames would be amazing!

There is nothing to be afraid of. Virtual reality will eventually rehabilitate your mind and eventually your body. Everything will be allright, i promise. Just concentrate. Try some music.

One poi is made.. one more to go.. damn kevlar shortage:)

drvariety:

it would be possible, as written above, just too difficult and unnecessary and expensive.

Nice, if slightly ott. They're pretty epic although the burn times would be rather too long for most of us. wink
