Posted:You can pretty much do anything you want with fire tools. Just use the right connectors and make sure everything's secure. Although since the glowstick(s) are plastic I'd leave a bit of chain visible at the bottom for the flame to burn so it won't hit the plastic, unless you find some from of see-through flexible fire proof material to cover the glowstick(s) in.

Posted:I looked at some of HOP's LED poi and one I noticed seems to be on a string. So that wouldn't work. But so long as the LED poi is on chains and has a connector or a swivel that you can attach a fire head to and take off the LED head, then you should be fine.

Posted:Quick questions

Are your chains made from metal?
If yes is it Stainless steel?
Is the chain as thick as a dog/keychain? (almost is a good enought answer)
Does the chain have Quick Link (or other sturdy connection) at the Head End.

If you answered yes to all the questions then it is suitable for both Fire and Glow Poi.
If not then best to just stick to Glow Poi with those chains unless your gut tells you otherwise.
