You refer to Poi or Staff?

Any which way: why would it make a difference?

after all it's the amount of wick that holds Kerosene, so I reckon both will come to the same. As in 'durability': on staff I would claim thicker wick to have a longer life expectancy...

With Poi:

Maybe consider using braided heads, made from rope. 'Better' flames (as in 'brighter') will be created, the more air comes to the flame and braided heads hold more Kerosene than 'banded ones' (of the same size) -> longer

the best smiles are the ones you lead to wink
