Length of Poi   Next Page  >

Girl holding arm out

Before you begin doing Poi you should check the total length of the cord. Hold the handle of the poi and put your arm out. With the other hand hold onto the Poi. The Poi should only just reach the side of your arm pit. It can be shorter, or you can have it longer but if longer then this can limit the number the moves you will be able to do.

Does that apply to socks too? What about the "stretchyness" factor?

Um, I'm making my own (fire) poi from nylon cord, and I'm basically tying monkey-fists at the ends of them. Does anyone know how flammable that is? Emoticon

Don't mix nylon & fire at all! The nylon will burn & you'll end up with lumps of flaming molten mylon flying everywhere. It will stick & burn horrifically. It will also give out toxic fumes

Use a natural fibre such as cotton or hemp rope - before you start making anything take a small piece & set fire to it to see what happens. This way you won't waste your time making your monkey fists out of something that will burn up in a few seconds & you can satisfy yourslef that you'll be safe.
