Oh, right! I have a fire staff! Thanks for reminding me, Geeza. Someone gave it to me when they were getting rid of their old stuff. I keep forgetting to learn any staffiness with it, though.

gah, the last time I saw a thread like this I had 5 different sets of Poi.

Now I've got
2 sets of contact poi
3 sets of socks
1 homesewn cone poi
2 sets of fire poi

2 dinky lacrosse balls for contact
1 firestaff
2 practice staves (1450cm mas o menos)
1 set of Double Staves (4 footers, thereabouts)
4.5 sets of meteors (still making the fire ones)
1 set of short double meteors
1 ropedart
1 set of fan poi
1 set of fire fans
3 cheap Juggling Clubs (which I can't do to save my life)
3 jubbling gean gags. (which looks about as graceful as it sounds)
7-8 Hula Hoops (went on a hoop-making binge)

Ive got a waiting-to-purchase list to get Charlie's Folding Fire Fans, the breakdown staff from Trick Concepts, a decent 100mm contact ball, a red acrylic ball, and now I kinda want a unicycle. I promised the wife I'd wait till my 2 year old is ready to learn bike riding before I get the uni, though. And that doesn't even include a passing fancy I have in getting LED version of some of those toys above.

*looks up*
Crimminy! No wonder my wife wants to kill me. If I paid as much attention to my wooing as my spinning, we'd probably have 14 kids by now.

oh, that reminds me: I have a set of Poi made with the 5-LED tap lights. I removed the back and attached it permanently to a half a tennis ball with a weighted interior. I got the idea from the old DMP. If you put em in the right material, they light up the whole sock beautifully.

Holy censored! That's a ton of censored!

I have added Rope Dart (don't really like it), double staffs also don't really like them, practice rope Poi heads, My own crazy-ass spirally Fire Poi with the super-massive flame that only weigh about 2.5 times as much as my cathedrals. Soon adding new Fire Poi of my own sennit design with new chains and all that will be described here:
HoP ball handle with Firemecca #6 swivel shoved into the eyebolt
220lb split ring
super tiny FireMecca oval link chain
FireMecca swivel welded to end of chain
Quicklink
Sennit Poi head 100% of my own design grin

Also plan on adding fire snakes to my collection. And does anyone know how much rope if used to make a Salza fire rope? I know what design they use, but not how much rope smirk

The only luck is bad luck.

Sock Poi ( plain blue )
Sock Poi ( jailhouse )
Cone Poi ( white )
Glow Poi ( Blue ) on cord
Glow Poi ( Rainbow ) on chains - really very nicely balanced
Flag Poi
Tail Poi
65mm Mura Fire Poi ( 'for real' dirty pair )
65mm Mura Fire Poi ( never lit, clean set for practice )
Flowpoi Duo ( air and water in each )
Flowpoi ( no lights, steal 2 out of the duo's when i use them )

of all my toys I prefer my Jailhouse Sock Poi the most. They are beautiful to spin with especially for wraps and spirals because of the springiness, they fling back open by themselves with zero effort but they are difficult to stall because of this, so i'm leaning towards the cones.

New flowtoys are amazing to play with as well, though they do feel a little bit clunky at the moment, not used to them yet.


*edit*
forgot my juggling stuff as well, just a set of Juggling Balls and some 75mm clear acrylic contact balls that I suck royally with if i'm being honest

I really really really want another pair of cone Poi smile They were my favorite out of everything I've used so far, but I am getting a new chain/wick set, so that's draining my money for now. Next for sure is a set of cone poi! I have a pair still, but they have about 10 threads left holding them together so they're pretty much just scrap cotton.

The only luck is bad luck.

I won't be there this week, but if it's announced it's still a good chance to meet some if the other STS folks.

Edit: (+2 watermelon flowlights, +2 pair Contact Poi, +1 new mass rig for my flowlights. And I'm not accidentally doubling anything; the correct total really is 4 pairs of Contact Poi. Different counterweight and cord setups.)

I have some rather lightweight Fire Poi (getting some heavier ones soon), some practice doubles, few Fire Staffs, few pairs of Sock Poi, some flashing Juggling Balls (no idea of the name, they were a gift), whip...erm...that's about it for the moment. Pretty lame really, but then I also have a small zoo & family to look after and that's where the money goes!! Lol

Finally got my super ghetto bamboo double staffs. There a little short but were made out of a random piece of bamboo lieing around. Eventually will cut down a couple fresh stocks and get equal pieces.

However I must say Double Staff is not as fun as I thought it would be. I did however get a chance (and did) to get into Contact Staff. That is much more fun in my opinion. But it will always stand Poi FTW
