Technora(R) or Kevlar(R)?

We have been playing with Technora(R) over the years, trying different weaves of rope to get the best feel, flexibility, and ease of use. We are very grateful to all those in the community that gave us feedback to help come up with a fantastic product.

What is Technora(R)?

It is a para-aramid fiber that is
  • Eight times stronger than steel!
  • able to withstand up to 930°F (499°C)
  • lovely and soft to the touch
  • high abrasion resistance
  • very flexible

So what? I have Kevlar(R)?

Technora(R) is far better than Kevlar(R) when used as a cord (not a wick).

It is ideal to use as a flame-resistant cord, instead of nylon, metal chains or other ropes that can heat up and possibly burn you.

You can hold a flame to it, and it will not burn or heat up!

Can I use Technora(R) to make a wick for a Fire Prop?

Not recommended as the Kevlar(R) wick we sell is mixed with other aramids making it much cheaper to buy, and it gives more fuel soakage for longer burns.

OK, so I can use it as a cord?

Yes, as you can see above, we have already attached to some Rope Darts. The wicks are still Kevlar(R), and the cord is Technora(R) with which you will hold and feed through your hand.
Rope Dart with Technora(R)

What? Can I still see a metal chain being used?

The chain above is there to give some distance between soaking the Kevlar(R) wick in your fuel container and keeping the fuel away from the Technora(R) cord.

Otherwise, the fuel on the cord will catch on fire and will still burn you! Before you get to the end of the Technora(R), you will first feel the splice, a thickening of the cord where it is fed inside of itself to make a loop for the quick link to attach, reminding you not to go further to the metal.

Stay tuned; we are continuing to update other products to the Technora(R) cords.

Love the rope dart!
"This is a great deal if you have an extra monkey ball (which I did because I lost one so now I have 3) or if you're willing to switch the ball from your poi to your dart and back. It's such a fun challenge! I recommend the tutorial videos on here too."

Perfect!
"I bought the fire dart for my adult daughter who recently took up the art. I originally attempted to purchase a similar product from your competitor, and after waiting three weeks learned they could not complete my order. I located your website and completed the order on Dec 11th. Knowing you were located in New Zealand (and I live in Canada) I did not hold out any hope of receiving it before Dec 25th to gift for Christmas. Wasn t I surprised to have received the order on Dec 18th! So the order and delivery process exceeded my expectations. My daughter has used the fire dart a number of times and is extremely pleased. It is perfectly weighted, perfect length, and the burn time is about 5-7 min. This may be irrelevant as she is still learning her craft. I highly recommend Home of Poi for supplying your poi needs. We are very satisfied!"

Amazing and affordable
"I love my new fire rope dart I got just the cord as I had Kevlar wicks. The cord is super sturdy and doesn t cause irritation or rope burn like other ropes do. And the flow is so effortless highly recommend if you like poi but get confused doing 2 hands"

Technora® Rope Dart - Mura Head  
     12th October, 2018

High Quality, as is expected
"This rope dart is great. I also prefer this wick style over the other, so this item was perfect for me. I typically get high quality items from Home of Poi, so expect nothing less with this one either. I actually am learning rope dart, so this is my practice prop too, if you intend to learn with this, make a cover for your wick, no sense in ruining it. Also, the rope that comes with this is not the best for practice (fat and leaves blisters if you spin a lot with it), but is perfect for fire."

Technora® Rope Dart - Ball Head  
     22nd December, 2017

Very satisfied
"Delivery only took a couple of days even with standard shipping (I'm in Australia). The ropedart itself is a good length and weight and I also really like the thickness of the rope. I've had lots of fun practicing with it over the last few weeks and have not had a single issue. The only thing that would make this an even better product for me is if it came with a bag to keep over the head when practicing not lit to protect it when it hits the ground. Other than that its a great product!"

Excellent quality dart
"Received the rope dart quicker than I had thought I would. Opened it up and immediately started playing with it. Granted this is my first rope dart so I can't compare to anything else but I've really enjoyed it. The only thing I don't like is getting rope burn. Haha. But I'm guessing there isn't any way to avoid that aside from wearing gloves. I recommend this dart though!"

Fire Rope dart - monkeyfist head
"This product was quickly shipped and the item was in perfect coniditon upon arrival. Teh head is nice and heavy and it flies pretty straight. My one issue is the kevlar rope and chain they use for leashing. The rope binds to itself and is not a prime choice for a leash. Secondly most rope darts use about 2-4 inches of chain. This rope dart has about 3 feet of chain which makes it inaccurate when used for shoots and makes the rope tension when shooting disproportionate to the heads momentum because of this amount of chain. I'd suggest HOP change the material used and cut down ont he chain. This item was indeed what I ordered but my preference forces me to give it a 4/5"
