Posted:Ok so I bought my self some practice sock poi this year but I am wanting to upgrade to glow poi. The sock poi is ok, but I am wanting to spin fire as well. I want something bright and durable.

My question to you is should I get the green sock poi on here or the rainbow balls? And if the rainbow balls, should I get chains that I can just switch out from poi to poi or nylon strings?

I really like the rainbow ones, does anyone know if they can just stay one color, or does it always fade? I am also worried that they will break, so how durable are they?

Ty everyone for you help in advance. I can wait to get started! weavesmiley

Posted:They are very durable, so will not break for ages. They always fade - no option to make them stay one colour. If I were you i'd get the rainbow glow foxy sock poi - they feel really nice, and the colours are great and they are so much better to spin with then glow strings.

Posted:They are durable but not that bright (definately not brighter than glow sticks) The cords depends if you want them to stretch. Foxy socks are very stretchy so not very good for stalls and isolations. However nylon cords are harder to learn with because they tangle easily.

Just get hyperlights, problem solved!

They're really just a bit tease - the brightest LED poi you've ever seen, reprogrammable and nice to spin with. But I said I'd start selling them about 4 years ago or thereabouts, and I'm still not quite finished cry

I'd say take a look at the website, but it's down for maintenance at the moment.
