Posted:Like most people I like, every know and then, to wrap the tails of my poi round the balls making it easier to practice or easier to use in crowded places etc etc.Well I was spinning the other day and decided to kepp my poi like this for a whle because of speed and I really like the way it lookes.

Because of this I decided to secure the tails so I didn't have to keep on attacking them so I went to the cupboard and was looking for some cling film or sanwich bags with which I could do so. I accidently picked up a role of tin foil riped off a pice and then ,realising my mistake, decided to give it a try anyway and it looks quote:

Posted:Heh, I also discovered how cool this looks and how well it works, but completely by accident. After the very first time I burned my wicks, I wrapped them in tinfoil just to keep from getting soot everywhere. It wasn't until after I had done so that I realized now only how well this works to turn your fire wicks into practice wicks, but how cool it looks as well. You can also spray the "flat" side of the foil with uv-active spraypaint if you happen to have a uv source, too. ;-)-p.

Posted:I wrapped a pair in glowtape... worked well for a quick fix only if it's pretty dark and you charge them for a bit. Nice if I'm just messing around with my lil bro and stuff. Black Light helps too...
