Posted:Oh my god, I can't imagine how much more surface area this will give me. I'm going to try it with some of the Kevlar I still have before I send it back. It will use 3 strands. It should have a ridiculous amount of surface area, it does however, use 1 less strand of Kevlar than the tornado stitch which is what I used before, so it will hold less fuel obviously with less Kevlar, but I want to see how stable it is, as it would cost much less smile I'll get a pic when I'm done whenever.

Edit: Wow, this is pretty sweet looking, kind of thin 2.25 inches in diameter, same length with left over Kevlar on 2 of the lengths. I have to say it has a LOT more surface are, although I do question the length of the burn some. I have one more idea to try that will use all 4 of the strands, update on that later. I will get a pic of this one up soon. But unfortunately I;m pretty sure my other one will turn out shorter with 3 of the strands having a ton left over.

Edit: Here we go!

Posted:Umm, it's the same as the tornado stitch, but the only thing different is you just take one of the strands out. I figured it would leave a big empty space and it did. Look's pretty groovy peace doesn't it wink

Posted:SoD, from my experience, big empty spaces aren't a good thing at all. They tend to burn and fray a lot faster than the rest of the kevlar, which is why I had to replace both my attempts at making isis poi.

Posted:Well, they're not really empty spots, it's just a big spiral, it's completely solid. By empty spot what I meant was the pace that was take out to make the spiral.

Edit: Here's we go, I love this one an plan on making it! It's really easy to measure out. You use 4 strands, 3 are half the length of the other one. And 1 foot of the short ones gives you 1 inch in length for the head. So lets say I want 5 inches, what the picture is. I need 3 strands 5ft long and one 10ft long one. I have to say, it's just plain old pleasing to look at and should give a ridiculous size flame.

Also I see on the left one the piece of tape of the end of the piece where I had to kind of splice in extra Kevlar so I could see how much 5ft of the shorter ones would get me. Exactly 5 inches.

Posted:Umm, I ordered my Kevlar earlier today, should be here in a couple weeks or so. I'm sending this back because it's not enough. The only reason I got it that big was because I just continued the stitch by sticking extra Kevlar in it, So that's only enough for 1 head.

Besides that one's 5". I'm gonna make the real ones 7! I'm expecting that I wont have to shave after using them.

Posted:Ok that's easy for you cause you live so close. If you ever want just give me the money for the Kevlar and of course some moolah for making it because it's not very easy and I'll make a pair for you. You can just tell me how long you want it. It's gonna be mre expensive if you want it quicker because of shipping tongue2 And I have to warn anyone that can make this. It takes FOREVER. Spent hours on that one head.
