That's actually kind of a universal feature of everything I learn. Forget about it for a week, come back to it, suddenly it's cake.

I will see what I can do! I've got nowhere to spin indoors, and the weather is likely to be crud until June, but if the opportunity comes up I will take it!

So the heavier your handle gets, the more it pulls the center of gravity of the prop out of the ball. This introduces wobble, or in the case of extreme weightings like 1:3 or 1:2, the &...

3 1/8  inch Stage Soft Color

Fantastic Poi Heads
"I have bought several pairs of these for making pendulum poi and the result are some of my favorite poi. They're comparable to a monkey fist wick in terms of weight and most of the colors (I've used the pink orange purple white and yellow) are bright and visible. The exception is the purple which is great in sunlight but may be too dark in other settings. I would recommend these to anyone who needs a poi head with a good weight to it; to those interested in experimenting with contact moves; or to anyone looking to make poi that will look great in daytime settings where fire or LED wouldn't stand out."

Handy grip for poi
"I bought these for making a pair of contact poi. There's not a whole lot to them and they're a little lighter than I'm used to but their texture makes them the handiest grip of this size that I could ask for. The material has a lot of friction so it's not easily going to go flying out of your hand and it's soft enough that it's not hard to drill or cut it to meet your needs."

EMPTY One - piece Cone Poi  
     19th December, 2009
Some of my favorite practice poi
"I first got a pair of cone poi when I wanted to start applying what I'd learned with stretchy socks to something that handled more like fire poi. I like the wide range of colors they come in (good for mismatching sets) and the durable material that lets me use heavier balls than the foxy socks can really handle. Also I prefer spinning with longer poi and the large size is perfect for me (and they wrap comfortably when going short). I do have to say however that my opinion of them has changed over time. They could stand to have a bit more slip to them. The material has a lot of friction and things like air wraps that work for me on practically every other pair of poi I own are much harder on these. I still give them four stars though because they have a good feel to them and I think they have a visual presence that something like Colecord poi lack."

5/32 inch ColeCord  
     19th December, 2009
Really Nice Cord
"I gave this a try after hearing about it here and there for a bit and I have hardly spun with anything else since I made my colecord poi. While I think accounts of its bounciness have been exaggerated the cord has a couple of other great properties that I think make it so fun to spin with. First it's self-cushioning so it's really comfortable to grip any part of the cord and spin from there. Second the amount of friction is great for air wraps/orbitals etc; I haven't been able to do orbitals on anything else yet but I can do them with my colecord. I've only tried the Mayan Purple and Geometry Red colors but both are vivid and appealing. Further 60 feet of the stuff (that's enough to make ten pairs of my poi with doubled cords) cost me just under $15! For what you get out of it I doubt there's a better bargain."

Empty Striped Sock Poi  
     13th November, 2009
These keep growing on me.
"Since buying my first pair of these I've ended up buying five more and only one of those because I accidentally tore a pair. All the colors are visually appealing and the slick stretchy fabric means that wraps have a real spring to them. Not to mention they're easier than any of my other poi to untangle--grab the heads and pull them apart. They are by far my favorite poi to practice new moves with and definitely the least painful. They're not the sturdiest things under the sun and I've had to repair the seams once or twice (usually after using heavier weights or I try something that ends up tangling and I tug before I've noticed). But when buying an order of three or more pairs even with U.S. shipping they're still cheaper by the pair than actual knee socks from the nearest store."
