Posted:so ive been spinning for like 4 or 5 days now with the poopiest pois ever that i made out of shoelace sugar plastic bags fabric and gumbands. basically they suck. but i learned 3beat weave, 5 beat weave, butterfly, and i got some sketchy hyperloops going as well, but heres my question...i ordered green LED sock poi, and strobe LED poi on tuesday and realized that im all the way in america. how long is this going to take???!!! has anyone ordered goods from here and live in america? if so let me know how long it took for you to recieve everything. also, do you think learning will make it a bit easier once i get my hands on some real poi? thanks.

question - where did you order your poi from? umm i'm gonna assume hop...i have no idea how long it will take though!! i'm in oz & it usually only takes a few days...but then we're just over the ditch!! smile your poi shouldn't take too long to get to you!!

you're very inventive though!! biggrin i think my first poi were just tennis balls in socks... ubblol


do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and good to eat!

if at first you do succeed, try not to look too astonished!

Posted:When I ordered new wicks and a few other bits of hardware a couple weeks ago from HOP they reached me in less than a week. And you get temporary super-vision when your order from HOP because you can see the package from miles away, and the hair on the back of your neck stands up and a little voice says to you, "It's time."

Posted:Hey dreadpoi, I went to check your order but maybe you made it under a different account or name as I didn't see it?
Anyway, att he moment it seems delivery to USA can be anywhere from as fast as 3 days to as super slow as 4 weeks - but typically seems to be just a little bit longer than 1 week, and almost certainly before 2.

Mucky - top marks for that comment! I ubblove it wink

Posted:Yeah. I need to replace my poi gear. HOP's about to get a lot of business from me.

Best mail-order business in the world. Pleasant, personal service, sincere interest in the community, and a charming New Zealand accent to go with it all! It's an environment where you really don't feel like a customer, but more like a friend. And that's why HoP has my business (unless it's proper circuit flags, which they don't carry [hint! hint!]). wink
