Contact Pendulum Poi

By Malcolm Crawshay, Home of Poi
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 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.

"I wanted a while for these poi, ~2 weeks. But I am in LOVE. They are soft TPU-like plastic, and the tethers are just a awesome as they are the perfect blend of fibers. I love how the turkey baster ends feel in my hands and they keep rope burn out of your life for good! They are great size for contact moves!"

order received
"Hello, I received my order, the pair of poi is superb, the phosphorescent effect is very good, on the other hand the balls are a bit deformed it may be due to storage or transport, I hope that they will resume their forms."

good for a beginner too
"I'm beginning with poi spinning but I find them easy to hold, a bit heavy maybe but it's a matter of time to accomodate with. Nice glow, and hopefully the string can be a lot shorten : since i'm quite short (155cm), I had to reduce the lenght to the minimum and it's just right."

Pair of Pro LED Multi-Function Contact Poi  
8th July, 2020

Great pair of starter LED Poi
"These were my first set of LED poi, and I adored them. I made the mistake of lending them to someone who spun them way to fast and one of the heads flew off; definitely user error, but definitely something to keep in mind. The weight of the heads are nice, which i found useful for isolations. Highly recommend to beginners."

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"
