I've been wondering (before i make this purchase) whether or not the Pro Series Multi-Function LED works as well inside of the Cone poi as it does on a chain, and i mean that as in, is it still bright?
My second question is whether or not the colour of the sock poi will affect the LED shining through it much. I would buy the white cone poi and use the LED's except since only half of a day is dark (sometimes less) i'll be practicing in the day a lot and i'm not sure if white looks very nice. I'm also assuming that when it gets dirty it stand out a lot too.
Posted:It would depend on what the cone poi was made off: my first led toys were juggling balls with no tether point. They came in white lycra socks which I wasn't happy with because of the stretch. I made myself some cone poi using a white nylon mesh, which worked very well.
The nylon is tougher than you might expect but being gauze it's still a bit flimsy, so not saleable but I got enough gauze for about 20 poi for $5 so I'm happy enough replacing them fairly often.
If you mean HOP cone poi, those are fairly heavy fabric and IMO would probably dim the light.
I have also seen reports of people using stockings if you don't sew - again watch them for wear and replace as needed.

Posted:Also depends on the LEDs. I've seen flowlights show up remarkably well inside a pair of ordinary white socks. I imagine something of comparable brightness inside white cone poi would be perfectly visible.
Posted:Afterthought: the led balls may not fit inside the HOP cone poi anyway, unless HOP have changed their pattern in the last year or so:
I have a pair of the cone poi on swivels (operated on the handles to make them less clunky), the cone is too narrow to take a tenis ball, much less an LED ball. Which is fine for practice - rice is much softer - but would stuff things up for Adrian's purpose.
