Posted:i personally prefer socks at least for practicing with and when i use mine i either grip them in my hand and have them coming out by my thumb or tie a slipknot in them and use them as a hand grips
Posted:Balloons filled with rice thrown into colourful socks is what I use.
You just wrap the socks around your fingers for extra control or just hold em or use a ball grip on the knots or whatever... anyway... you might wanna hold off on the LEDs til you get a bit better, lots of hits might mean you'll ruin the LEDs and you might find you'll want better ones in the future anyway.
Posted:Well I haven't ever bought poi. My sock, practice and fire poi were made myself. Before anything I would make these. http://www.homeofpoi.com/lessons_all/tea...k-Poi-12_57_208 It only say this because you can see if you even like poi. I have had a few friends grab my stuff and after 10 minutes they completely give up.
Posted:My poi ARE pretty much those, but with balloons and rice rather than socks in socks... they're the ones I love most and use most... they've stretched to a point that they hardly have any stretch left at all.... they're fabulous, the feeling I get while spinning them is absolutely unearthly... I feel as though they're extensions of my body, they're my tentacles.
I use 3/4 of a cup of rice in each, its about the weight of cathedral head poi full of fuel, so thats handy. Its also a good weight so that you can feel where the poi are going. Suck all the air out of the balloon before you tie it up, it'll last longer.
Posted:For every new toy I learnt I started with the fire version. Mainly because they're more forgiving (in the case of chucks), but also because when/if you decide to do fire (Which I always planned to do with each new toy I got) you don't have to buy another thing. So if you're planning on burning, get fire poi; if not - don't.
