hey, I just made a pair of sock poi with 249 grams of rice in each head (love heavy poi!), and I want to counter-weight them but I'm not sure what the ratio of head weight to handle weight should be. Any suggestions?

I was thinking of using my homemade juggling balls which are about 138.5 g each. is that too much of a counter-weight?

best counter weighting I've done is a 1:3 ratio. So if your heads are 249g, then 83g handles should work best.
