Posted:The 16 pairs of poi I show on YouTube, plus two more (another, heavier inner tube headed poi with a different grip, and my flowlights whenever I use spare cord to rig flowlight handles), a rope dart, double staves, a few juggling balls. Also my newer pair of poi converts nicely into a meteor, so I'll count that as half a toy.

Aha! You're the first person I've come across with any experience of the concentrate poi: what do you think of them? Particularly have you had the chance to compare them with flowlights for brightness and how durable are they?

Posted:Jameth; the concentrate glopoi arent bad. They're a really bright light, lots of nice RGB setting and seem to be pretty durable. The handles and cord they come with arent that great but that can be easily fixed. I cant really say off the top of my head which is brighter out of them or flowlights, id have to see them side by side, nor do i know how durable flowlights are.

yeah man, 2 straight jackets, one is only prop-quality, but one is hardcore institution-quality made by the 'humane restraint' co.

Posted:@pineapplepete - thanks for the info. The thing with flowtoys for durability seems to me partly that they're fairly tough to start with but also that they're modular, so if you hit things hard when spinning all you need to is replace the case, not the whole light.

@ Sister Eleven - so, you're the specialist then. smile
