Contact Pendulum Poi

By
Pendulum Poi gets its name from the precision swinging of the Pendulum weight in a grandfather clock. This weight gets used to keep the correct time of the clock.

Differences in Pendulum Poi

The most visual differences that we offer are the types of grips and whether or not the cord is adjustable.

All the handles are weighted to allow Juggling and the throwing of the Poi Set.

The 'Flex' in the name of the product means it uses a 6mm Polyester Rope which as the name implies provides a more flexible cord.

The regular Pendulum Poi which, uses a thicker 8mm Polyester Rope, which can help with vertical stalls or any moves requiring a stiffer rope/cord.

The last differences are in size and color of the ball at the end of the Poi.

Effects from Ball size

More giant balls have a greater visual impact, more weight, and easier to do stalls. They are also more likely to keep in your planes of movement on a windy day. They will also give you a bigger workout for your muscles. But they are more likely to collide as they take up more of the flight path and take a bit more effort to adjust their direction.

Smaller balls have a reduced visual impact for your audience. But you can make up for that with contrasting of the ball color with that of your background and costuming. If outside, you will be more affected by any wind, which can be a pain; however, as they have a smaller footprint, they will be less likely to collide with you or the other Poi. And of course, less weight is easier on your muscles, especially if you have never done Poi before.

Your first Practice Poi

It is best to start with something lightweight and with adjustable cords. You can try longer and shorter cords until you find your most comfortable length for your self. Then you can cut off any excess cord and burn the end of the cord to seal it and stop it from unraveling. Pendulum Poi balls are quite hard, so you will get a bruise if you crash from spinning them too fast. We have plenty of other types of Fabric Poi which have soft bead-filled heads that will not hurt you so much.

Benefits of Poi

Spinning Poi is a great low impact exercise for the body, improves co-ordination, self-image, confidence, increases brain functionality, and proven to make you even more clever.

Doing Poi is also a great way of meeting new people, by breaking down traditional barriers and creating interest to develop new friends and relationships.

Wonderful!
"This was my first set of poi I ever paid for, and I love them! It took a while for them to come in the mail, but I ordered from America (overseas). I loved being able to choose a good length of rope for myself and choosing a color set. I highly recommend these poi for beginners or someone that might not know if they are wanting to fully commit to an expensive pair. customer service was excellent! VERY PLEASED"

Wrapsta 72mm Poi
"I finally received my Poi today. It took about a week and a 1/2 longer to get them than expected but it was worth the wait. They are beautifully made. They are the right weight and I can adjust the length easily. I've only used home-made sock poi before and these are really different in weight and size. Worth the $$."

Make things easier
"I already have the same pois but with 100mm balls and thicker rope,and they are really huge. Those ones have smaller balls and thiner rope and this is really really easier to flow with. I can do stalls and orbitals without any problem with them!"

Great poi
"The poi are really good. If you are beginner's (like me) or for kids, I would suggest you start from buying the ones from fabric because these might hurt a little bit"
