Posted:I would not do the double loops, but otherwise sounds quite similar to my set up. You might need more quicklinks, depending on what you knot and where you put your swivels.

Posted:Personally I like swivels at the top and bottom, so I'd recommend

Handle->triangle quicklink->swivel->colecord tied through swivels->swivel->oval quicklink->flowlight

Thats how my main pair atm is set up except for weighted tennis balls instead of flowlights and I really like the way they swing. Hope that helps

Posted:Well, it depends on if your handles and your cords/chains attach directly to the swivels. If they do not, then you will need a way of linking them. It also depends on where you are putting the swivels.

Common set ups:
handle - link - swivel - link - cord/chain - link - swivel - link- head
handle - cord/chain - link - swivel - link - head
handle - cord/chain - head
handle - link - swivel - link - cord/chain - head

In your case, with colecord, you can simply tie the cord to the swivel. Depending on which of the above set ups you go for, you may only need to link the swivel to the handle and find a way to link the cord to the crystal case, so four links in total.

My own set up goes handle - colecord - crystal case, although I am planning to change this soon.

Posted:If you tie the colecord directly to handle/swivels you will want 2 oval quicklinks, if you only want 1 swivel per poi, or 2 oval, 2 triangular if you want 2 swivels on each poi. Me and Aston were just giving you examples of how to put everything together =).

Posted:For 2 swivels per poi you need 4 quicklinks total, for 1 swivel per poi you need 2 quicklinks total.

Posted:Cause swivels are pretty cheap on here I'd say get 4, then you can just try the poi out with 2 and 4 and see what you prefer. Better to have too many than not enough =)
