Posted:I swear...I better have triceps the size of a professional body builder's in a few months coz man...spinning poi is definately making me sore. I've been using a pair of tube sox with a sports bra stuffed into each sock and they seem pretty heavy...although I'm not sure if they are actually heavy compared to other poi because so far they are all that I've used but man...I'm gonna be ripped!

Posted:Wait until you try silly things like flowers and crazy isolations. Those will make your arms quite sore indeed.

Personally, I've recently found I'm happier with heavier poi. I was a tennis ball in socks man until I figured how much easier tangles and tosses are with heavier poi.

Posted:Lol...I know. Sports bras were the only thing I could find to stuff inside the socks. They work alright for now until I get some real poi. And they hurt way less when you hit yourself in the face over and over and over...
