More massive Monkey Fist Poi 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!
All Fire Poi SetsAll our Fire Poi sets have KEVLAR® wicks . If you look after the wick it can last for years.
However, if you let the fire 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 common KEVLAR® 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.
Fire Poi SafetyAll our Fire Poi sets come with free online Fire Safety advice and instructional videos.
