Posted:At least they're not miyachi.

But the astrojax remind me, I need to make one of this toy that someone at my spin jam came up with. Theirs is just three tennis balls connected in an equilateral triangle by some cord. They haven't come up with more than a couple of things to do with it, but it's one of those home brew props I see and think there must be a way to make it awesome.

Posted:I know someone in my spin group came up with this thing that so far I can use the best, but it's sooo awesome! It's like a hybrid of a rope dart and a meteor. It's basically a meteor with a long rope attached to the middle so say you were using it like a meteor, then you can throw it out and it keeps spinning and you yank it back and you can keep spinning it. Or you can also just use it like a rope dart. There are so many possibilities with it I need to make one!

Posted:+1 pair of solid steel core practice monkey fist poi with spectra cables (thin cord that can support 500+lbs)

Also making another pair of contact poi soon trying out some Samson Ultra-Lite for the cords (floats on water like polypropylene rope, holds about a ton an the 1/4" diameter). What can I say, I'm fond of excess. And then I need to make a pair of swivelly contact poi... I hope Mr. Babache appreciates my business tongue2

Strangely, they are neither as heavy nor as painful to get hit with as my inner tube poi. The core is an eye bolt with a bunch of fender washers, but the cotton rope monkey fist actually pads it pretty nicely...

Posted:nice collection. love the random bag of tennis balls. I thought they were for sock poi until I read the caption, I was like "that's a lot of sock poi you'll be making..."

so far I have:
- 1 pair practice poi (beanbag poi)
- 1 pair crystal cases + flowmass + colecord leashes and pro series handles
- 1 pair each of fire, water, & spirit flowlights
- 1 random pair of flowtoys handles
- a ton of extra colecord for future leashes

so not a lot. just got a raise and I'm thinking of buying either:
- moonblaze poi with twist link chain and medium wicks from firemecca
- contact staff rig from flowtoys + sol lights
- flowpoi duo rig + sol lights

not sure which I'll go for, so I'm mulling it over. any opinions are welcome!

Posted:I could make them into sock poi as well. Be better than most. Normal tennis balls are too light.

In terms of getting something new, I would suggest the fire poi, if only because you are already working on that. If you want to go into contact staff, it is fairly easy to make your own.

Posted:went through my whole flowtoys collection last night because I was missing a luna and wanted to make sure I hadn't just misplaced it. not only did I find the luna but I realized I am no longer missing a single part, not even a lowly battery! I am pretty amazed; at least one cap or flowlight or something is always missing.

right now I have two each of:
luna
sol
nebula
water
fire
earth
spirit
love
watermelon

and waiting for pickup at my apartment office tonight, I should have two each of:
air
LUCK <3

which makes for 22 flowlights. heh. and I have 24 batteries too (have to have at least two extra; I don't like switching the batteries in and out when I switch flowlights and I don't like running out of batteries before I can get a new pair charged)

also have:
3 crystal cases (they get yellow over time... they don't seem dirty though... I think it's just the material?) anyway, I like to have at least one extra at all times for when they start to obscure the flowlights a bit
3 flowmass (same thing)
like 6 o-rings? they're cheap so I got some extras
2 duo tubes, with flower and bridge caps
one set of flowtoys handles for the duo tubes, with colecord leashes
one set of pro series (HoP) handles for the crystal poi, with colecord leashes
one pair of 18" small monkey fist poi (firemecca) with twist chain
one pair of 25" medium moonblaze poi (firemecca) with twist chain
one pair of blue sock poi from HoP

and of course, various odds and ends like plastic bags (ziploc bags with a zipper are THE BEST for spinning off), funnels, and a big container for my fire poi equipment

I think that's it... maybe. I might be forgetting something.

yeah, I'm pretty much paying for the flowbaby's college fund.

I have not noticed a dimming by the yellowing of the crystal cases, just by the way.

Posted:hmm so your cases turn yellow too? good to know that it's nothing abnormal.

and I only notice a slight dimming on white lights, so it's not a big problem. I'm just a little OCD (without the D).

+1 rope dart
-4 (out of 6) inner tube poi (one recycled for rope dart, two for the puppyhammer... I can't actually recall what I did with the fourth one. Maybe it's only -3)
+1 pair contact poi (because I think I forgot to add my most recent pair)
-1 pair contact poi (the balls finally totally failed so I stripped them for parts).
