We all know of the popular double poi and staff and it's variations, flags, staff with one big flag covering the intire staff, the cross configureation staff,clubs,batons ect..My question is do you have any of your own poi/staff ideas? I would really like to see a compition for new types of poi invented by the user itself the winner would be jugged by creativity and usedge. of his poi invention or modification.

Although this is not a poi invention, you may still be interested!I crave to create a fire staff that is filled with paraffin, sounds dangerous? we`ll see!!!The main point of this would be to have a pump in the centre of it that would send out huge fireballs when squeezed. maybe a little more thought needs to go into it but i`m on the case! maybe a poi relation is possible......seems fire gets a little more insane every time I stop to think about it!------------------peace, love and light*TOUCH*

Sounds like a crazy idea, Touch. Even more crazy than my 90degree angled staff idea.BTW: Please don't rack your brain trying to figure out how my staff idea works. I made one, and I still am having troubles.BTWA: My brother attatched one of my long tennis ball Poi to a broomstick last night. Made it into a (quote unquote) flail.

Jacob's Ladder is all mine.Also working on the flaming umbrella thing.I would love to see a flaming kite but can't quite figure how it would work. I am thinking if someone is good with Kites they could really paint some neat designs across a midnight sky.The list goes on but I'll refrain.....point is I seem to look at most things in terms of performing and fire.------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...

Pele: I was at a party a few weeks ago where a bunch of peeps were really into kite flying. This particular group is really into the Japanese fighting kites that are highly maneuverable. One of the things they did after dark was put bright red and green glow sticks on the wingtips of the kite so they could controll it the dark!I also watched _The Hudsucker Proxy_ a few nights ago and wondered what you might be able to do with fire and a hula hoop...You know you are addicted to poi when everything you see becomes a potential fire toy. ;-)-p.

kites ?well i know that you can get lightweight L.E.D nite lites for the delta wing stunt type.as for fire i guess ya could attach some smaller type of fire poi end to some lightweight cable and use the larger power kite design which will have the lift capability to stay airborn(prolly along the lines of an 8foot flexifoil)there are 2 drwbacks thou1) ripstop nylon and flames dont last long2)at over 100 UK per kite its a bit expensive a sacrifice for me to risk letting curiousity getting the better of me.now if somebody had an idea for poi that whistle while twirling id definatly build a set as i love the sound of air passing throu chains Eric

pj....hula hoops have been done by a few people, mostly I have seen ones from Hawaii and I think Fireworks was working on something like it, I'll ask.Along those lines I was thinking something like those Skip-it toys. The ones the kids have around their ankles and they swing it and jump over it. You could do it off your wrist to but when I was in gymnastic ever so long ago I could do some cool stuff with my skip-it lemon. It's a matter of keeping the wick from being destroyed along the ground though, and pretty much always having to use it on pavement.Eric...half way down your chain put one of those whistling pipes and it should work BUT I don't think you'd be able to hera it over the roar of the fire. It's cool to think about though.Pere...you think tin foil would fly? Hmmmmmm...thinking...........I might just have to try, though I seriously suck at kites. Neato!
