I made my own set of fire poi, and you have to be careful putting them together, always check your gear before you spin.

It is good having something you have actually made by hand.
Fire can make thin metal bend and break so make sure you do lots of research and do not go too cheap.

Good to hear you will wait until older. Also find someone who has experience to help you with your first fire spin.
I prefer all the cool LED Poi now, than the messy fire poi, but i am a really old fart now tongue2

May your balls always burn
