Posted:I think that that may be a type of poi burnoff. I'm not sure entirely how to do it, but the basic idea is that you do a fast wrap, then when the poi stops it sends out a little ball of fuel into the air which then ignites.

Posted:Ahh I see. Wow, no idea what that is. Looks like it's just exploading randomly though, not on them. A type of firework?

Posted:I'm not sure they are using charcoal poi, we use that occaisionally when wire wool is not appropriate, looking at their vid I would say they are using a form of stage pyro that we use, either silver jets and or gerbs, we routinely use waterfalls poi, but the effect is quite different. Might have a look at this, although the duration of silever jets and gerbs tend to be very short, as on the vid, normally electrically fired but see reason why they can't be delay fused to fire. Looking at this again and some of the results from last nights fire meet trials cages and charcooal it probably is charcoal,



Looking at some of the other material on this site, it becomes very clear to me they are using quite a lot of specialist pyro effects,
