I want to get a 4 flowlight set up, flowlight heads and handles

My only qualm is that I don't plan on having cases on the handles as the cases would make them quite bulky (as far as handles are concerned) but I don't want them to just shatter if dropped so I want to know if anyone thinks this will happen

I am told the newer flowlights are quite durable, but I am admittedly skeptical.

Also, can anyone give me an exact weight of the flowlights with crystal cases and flowmass? I've been told you end up sacrificing brightness and brilliance for an unimpressive increase in weight

I really just don't want to drop a hundred bucks and end up dissatisfied

The crystal Poi cases themselves are not expensive at all. They are $5 a piece.

I was comparing them to ipod cases which are a dime a dozen lol

Not saying the are expensive, just more so than one would expect and we have come to an agreement why so it's all good

Got to use my new rig at the Glitch Mob show last week and the crystal cases were just fine on the handles. Made them easier to hold, really, though all my Poi have kinda chunky grips.

Got new cases on the way for mine too. Actually picked up several things from Flowtoys and HoP this week. It's all just components, no actually lights or anything, but I've got 3 sets of lights now so I should be good on those for another week or two. laugh3

I just ordered my flowlights, cases, and masses. I'm making a rig with swivels and Colecord (the idea is for each end to be fully interchangeable for handles and ends consisting of 4 swivels) has anyone else used this formula and how was it?

I got to play with a set over the weekend and thought that would make it the best for all Types Of Poi. (I picked 2 watermelons and 2 spirits, thought they would look good together)

~Rock on!~

I heard the first couple seconds and was like, "No... It can't be... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I feel ya Smurf, but I couldn't wait so I split my order. The Watermelons are nice (got them today) they are much more pink in person where on the computer screen it's a more purple tone to the pink. I wanted my discount too so all my Colecord, swivels, crystal cases/flowmass I ordered on here (needed a new travel candle too while I was at it!LOL) grin

The thing I like about the watermelon color is the purply pink with the green creates kind of a frosty, whitish tinge to them, so they come out having a surprisingly cold color.

They do have a nice ambiance to them, I decided to use them as my handles with spirit as the Poi for now. Gotta be gentle while waiting on the cases though. I used a pair of shoe strings today 'cause I just had to play a little!!!

Haha my friend wants watermelon and spirit for his Flow Staff. Also I put my flowlights on my chains for my Fire Poi. My quicklinks are to big for the flowtoy so I had to use a zip tie. must be super super careful though I still have some waiting for my cases.

Well I must say, with double mass on them, these are probably indestructible o0 I love how I can have heavy lights! I can make them go slow and look like they're floating at times as well as fast grin I must grease the bearings on these handles though they're terrible atm.

Would they shine through a double mass? If so I believe the heavier the better and will order some more masses when I can! Maybe a set of Waters too... wonder

Glad to hear good things about double mass. I ordered mine with double cuz I love the weight. Also I have only spun flowlights without mass, and I assumed one just wouldst be enough.

Hurray for buying lights ahead of time and buying double mass without knowing if it was a good idea or not

Lol if the double mass works fine for the bottom lights, why wouldn't it work fine for the top light?

Shoot, just found out that my flowlight cracked again, so apparetnly the glue didn't hold up. The light is still somewhat working (its a little dim, but I haven't tried it with a new battery yet, so it may be just fine). But on my other flowlight, only 1 of the 3 lights is working. Did anyone (I think someone had the same question) find out if Flowtoys offers their lifetime warranty with cheap replacements to toys bought from HoP?

Was gonna buy a couple more and go with a similar setup to what Sister Eleven mentioned. But I guess I'll ditch that idea now, since if I have to replace these 2 aswell, it'll be to pricey for my wallet..*le sigh*

FlowToys states that they will replace any FlowLight for half price, i.e. $10. Interestingly enough, they don't require the replaced light to be broken and explicitly state that you can even do this if you just want to switch to a different color.

All you have to do is shoot an email to them at the address provided, and they'll provide a mailing address to which you send the old light (no, you don't get to keep it) along with a check/money order for the appropriate amount.

Pretty good warranty that I've taken advantage of.

Good to know! One of mine has already started to malfunction it seems and I'm starting to regret not picking Earth instead of Watermelon...
