Posted:I tied a monkey's fist in a long rope, and made a little figure-eight knot in the other end. When the monkey's fist rests on the floor, the rope comes up to my chest. It's too lopsided for a meteor, but it's too long for a poi. I don't want to alter anything, so how can I use my new uberlong stageprop?

Posted:There's no set length for rope dart, poi, or meteors...
The meteors I've seen in the poi community are *much* shorter than those derived from wushu. Old-school wushu meteor performances included a number of poi-like moves (weaves and so forth) using instruments 2-3 times as long as the performer! Likewise a rope dart really only has to be a dart... on a rope! If you want to do the complex body wraps you'd have to have it longer, but there are a lot of things you can do with a short one involving wraps, throws, tosses, and kicks.
At that length you could also use it to practice boleadoras dance, like tap-dance with poi.
You could build a chigiriki-like rig; a Japanese weapon that was basically a staff with a weighted chain on one end.
Or do what I do in cases like this, just leave it in your gear bag for a while until you either think of something to do with it or use it to make something else...
