Posted:hey everyone. hope you are all having a great month of may. anywho, I got some awesome jailhouse Sock Poi with the soft glow LED balls in it for my birthday on the 7th. I just noticed two days ago that the bottoms of them are tearing. badly. they hav not been thrown or been scraping the ground. only hitting my head and legs and the occasional groin smack. I am really sad my toys are falling apart so soon. has this happened to anyone else with the Poi I have.
Posted:Hmmmmm my Poi that I got from HoP lasted me for a year and a half and that was with heavy abuse. They were the same fabric as the ones that are the jailhouse pattern, mine were the white ones. I'd send them a message, I had a problem once with a different product and they took great care of me
My ADD makes it so that.....Ooooo SHINY.....wanna go ride bikes....wait....where am I.....
Posted:do you mean tearing, as in ripping open at the seams, or more like the material is wearing a bit thin in places, making holes?
The material is Lycra. When the Poi heads hit together, it's gonna wear the material away. Mine do it too, but only when the balls I put in them are hard or rubbery. but something softer in them when you're using them in daylight, and I reckon you'll be fine
With the hard/rubbery balls, the friction is greater as the two heads hit, or even if they hit anything else. The material is gripped by the rubbery/grippy surface, and it's like taking a piece of sandpaper to it. one drop will do it. you telling me in three weeks, you've treated them as if they were made of glass?
I don't suggest sending them back, because, whilst HoP are lovely people, you kinda broke them yourself with regular use, and well, they're quite cheap to order a pair of replacement socks. I recommend using them until they really give up the ghost, or just buy a pair of replacement socks, and put something softer and less grippy in them when you're not actually using the glow. I've had a pair of those Poi for almost three years now. A few holes, but still work great.
Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water. Put Water into a cup, it becomes the cup, put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can flow, or it can Crash. Be Water My Friend.
Posted:Hey Phil, Im pretty sure Ive been emailing you in regards to the damaged Sock Poi but if it was a different Phil simply drop me an email at HOP central and I will help ya out with this....... firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
Our Sock Poi are a Nylon/polyester composition so there is no Lycra in the mix. Some people choose to use Lycra but we found that the Nylon/polyester blend doesnt loose its stretch as much as Lycra...... We tried Lycra for awhile but then changed a few years ago.
