Selecting your Fire Poi SetFor true beginners, we suggest using our Sales Assistant, and by just ticking a few boxes we will come up with what we think you should consider.
Selecting the size of your Fire Poi
Usually, stick to medium-sized fire heads. If you are a small frame or new to fire the small-sized fire heads will be better. With extra sizeable heavy Fire Poi, you will need arms like Thor to spin.
Suggested length of Fire Poi
Use the image below to get your ideal Poi Length .We use S = short, M = medium, L = long to help in selecting length.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.
Selecting type of Poi Handles
We sell mainly a single loop as it gets held in several ways. For some, this is a more secure way of holding onto the Fire Poi. These are made from soft nylon and must be kept away from the flame as they will melt.
We also offer silicone knob handles that are easy to grip and let go of the poi if necessary. You can also use these to Juggle the poi, and they can have their weight changed by inserting weights inside of the knob. Being silicone they will resist catching on fire.
Never use Fire Pois that are attached to your wrist/hands using buckles and cannot easily and quickly get dropped in an emergency. You do not want to 'stop drop and roll' if the Fire Poi is still connected to you.
Looking after your fire dancing Poi
All our Fire Performance Equipment has KEVLAR® wicks. If you look after the wick, it can last for years.
However, if you let the Fire Poi wick smolder by allowing all the fuel to be used up, then the KEVLAR® wick will burn away slowly and fall apart. Sunlight also degrades and darkens the color of KEVLAR® wick gradually over time. So it is good to have wick covers when using fire props during daylight, it also stops you from getting your daytime clothes dirty from the residues on the wicks.
Many people wrap some tin foil over the wicks and then put some colorful socks over that. We also sell some fluffy covers which can fit over some familiar KEVLAR® Fire Toys.
Wicks and Fire Heads
Because of how expensive pure KEVLAR® is, our wick also contains other aramid fibers and fabric grade fiberglass (not the kind that itches or stabs you. After all, at HoP, we work with it all day. We sell many configurations/styles of Fire Heads.
Styles of Fire Poi
The Medium Cathedral Style Fire Poi gives a good-sized flame, medium burn time, and because of its simplicity is ease to make. It offers excellent value for money. Great for beginners and professionals. We also offer an option which includes a very popular beginner led poi set.
Bigger Cathedral Fire Poi are also available as large and extra-large, but beware these flames are starting to get a lot bigger and not for beginners. Medium Monkey Fist Fire Poi are also a trendy style, providing similar flame characteristics to the Medium Cathedral Fire Poi. With the bonus of being a more fitting ball of fire with a meteor tail of flame. These sets also have a fuel compartment within the core for extending the burn time. Unfortunately because of the time involved in making these they do cost a bit more than Cathedral Style Fire Poi.
Giant Monkey Fists Poi Fire Balls made from using Kevlar(R) Rope, are available and are rather heavy with big flames requiring you to have big strong arms, not for the fainthearted. But wow what a show!
Weka Fire Poi are a good start for fire dancing beginners and those who prefer lighter weight Fire Poi. These are a simple design and should last a very long time.
Larger versions of the Weka Fire Poi are called Mura Fire Poi and create a flatter flame with a big appearance. Another Great value for money Fire Poi.
Snake Fire Poi have a considerable glow so you will always need to keep them swinging. Otherwise, you will get your hands and handles burnt. Not for beginners and they will restrict some of your tricks because of the size. Once spinning, they create fantastic walls of flame with substantial visual appeal.
Double Headed Fire Poi, and Triple Headed Fire Poi perfect for creating beautiful rings of flame, but again not for beginners as the flame is closer to your hands, and you'll need always to keep them swinging. Their main strength is that they are very visually appealing. The smaller head versions are OK for most people, but the larger heads will require more power and endurance to keep the Fire Poi moving.
Block Fire Poi and Twista Fire Poi are a more sophisticated version of the Cathedral Fire Poi construction. By having a small size wick woven provides a more solid fire head and the multilayers and grooves create a larger surface area for mixing of the fuel and air. This construction method means a more durable Fire Poi Set with stronger Flames. Again like most of our sets, we have a big selection of sizes available.
And lastly, the ultimate Pro 3D Death-Star Fire Poi is a large custom made Fire Poi delicately handcrafted with multiple internal layers of thin KEVLAR® strips using a natural capillary action to feed the fuel to the soft spikes. A very long manufacturing process for this set and price keeps this set out of the mainstream Fire Poi spinners. So proud owners are likely to provide an even more unique fire dancing show. As well as an overall flame, jets of flame also appear from the spikes! The Audience will be unaware that the spikes are not dangerous for added WOW factor. For Professionals ONLY.
