I typically chose my fire poi head by weight. Some people prefer one style of knot or fold over another. All styles feel pretty equal to me when spun, besides the weight.
As far as handles and chains go, they are more of a personal preference. As long as they are from HoP, you know that they are top quality and safe to use.

Posted:Id have to agree with Sean. My first set was regular monkey fists with welded link. I spun them for several years before they showed signs of deterioration. And i loved the weight. Plus the monkey fists have a slightly longer burn time than cathedrals or rolls of similar size. Its all good though. as you learn more and gain more experience youll find it easier to find what your looking for. Keep at it.
