5th May, 2018 Get what you pay for "I have bought 4 sets of HOP fire fans in my life. Yes, they're cheap fans but they are unbalanced, and Everytime I order them they come bowed to the point where I can't even submit a photo of the damages because it's more of a feel then a problem you can see. They're packaged not in a box with their fragile frames and weak metal, but in bubble wrap and plastic, which obviously isn't strong enough because my two pairs of lotus fans and my two sets of spider web fans came bowed. As a serious performer I don't buy fans to have them past me a few months. The fans came with the smallest amount of Kevlar thread, I had to go buy more. One time I bought a pair that was even missing a wick! I've performed with these fans from the beginning so I don't like ragging on them, but now that I've spent some time with some other brands of fans, I suggest that you go with another company."

Reply from Home of Poi: "customer had only just received these, Our support crew sorting out a free replacement. All parcels come with insurance incase of damage to the goods. In store we use around 4 meters in total for two fans. In the spool we include 10m which is more then double that is required as shown in our tutorial video. "
30th April, 2018 Great but not perfect "For the most part I am so happy with these! The design is amazing, balance and weight is really ideal and everything seems really high quality so far, the spider fans are a joy to spin. The value is also amazing and I feel a little more connected to my fans after stitching the wicks on myself. However, one of the needles was broken when I received it and there wasn't enough thread in the kit to stitch everything as thoroughly as I would have liked so I would suggest HoP to include at least another meter of thread on the spool :)" Alice Bauman, USA.

30th April, 2018 99.9 happy! "Love these fans! Only one problem :/ one of the fans was missing a rivet point on one side of one of the stems and it broke away from the main ring. Still usable and i plan to fix them however i can! Can t wait to wick them up and light them up! Waiting for another set and an led hoop next! Thanks home of poi!" Rachael Renzi, USA.

9th April, 2018 Amazing spider fans!!! "So so extremely satisfied with my Make Your Own Pair of Spider fans! Shipping took about 2 weeks but was the most exciting time waiting for something I ve been dying to receive! Great quality and weight to the fan- great for spinning and easy to grip! Thank you so much Home of Poi!" Lauren P, USA. [Verified Buyer] BRONZE Member since Mar 2018
9th April, 2018 DIY Fire Fans "DIY fire fan kit was really good, with everything provided even a special needle for threading the wicks properly. Instruction video was really easy to follow, along with wicks pre-cut to needed size, so dont need to worry about measuring and cutting straight etc as all done for you." Calvin Grant, Australia. [Verified Buyer] GOLD Member since Feb 2010
13th March, 2018 Perfect item, perfect delivery time "Absolutely love these fans. As expected, they came in perfect condition, easy to sew/assemble the wicks. I live in the UK and they took 2.5weeks to arrive which was great! Will definitely be back in future." Lydia Mcdaid, United Kingdom. [Verified Buyer] BRONZE Member since Feb 2018
5th March, 2018 SO HAPPY!!! "I am so thrilled with my new toys and to have found a company with such excellent customer service! Not to mention, the free lessons and searchable database of information on their website. I am so excited to be starting my fire journey in such a positive and informed manner and can't wait to extend my collection in the future!" Deadly Miss Blue, USA. [Verified Buyer] BRONZE Member since Feb 2018
1st March, 2018 First impressions: great! "I love it! I'll get to try them this weekend, but so far they're much more lightweight than the fans at the studio. A very elegant feel." Jamie Graffman, USA. [Verified Buyer] BRONZE Member since Feb 2018
1st March, 2018 My Spider Fire Fans are Awesome!! "My fans came with week and I am super happy them. I just finished sewing on the wicks. Its a great option to be able to do my own wicks and save a bit of money. Considering these fans were coming from all the way across the globe, they came in great timing and condition. I would buy from Home of Poi again!! :) <3" Erin Wise, Canada. [Verified Buyer] BRONZE Member since Feb 2018
27th February, 2018 Fantastic! "I received the fans some days ago, after more or less two weeks(i'm from Italy, so it's great!). It is my first pair of fans, so I can't compare with others, but they seem resistant, cheap and really cool! I spent more than an hour to put the wick (it hurts a little bit), but thanks to the tutorial they are ready! I'm really happy and I'm looking forward to burn them! What a pity you are so far from here!" Sara, Italy. [Verified Buyer] BRONZE Member since Jan 2018
21st February, 2018 Love it! "I couldn't be happier with my spider fans!! Lightweight, beautiful and the discount from buying it DIY is so nice! So glad I got them." Pauline, USA. [Verified Buyer] BRONZE Member since Jan 2018
30th January, 2018 knowledge is key! "the folks at HOP have got this down to a science. everything I needed was included...in fact there was just enough Kevlar thread to finish the job. one arms length for each wick...perfect. the available video (they sent me the link for this) of EXACTLY how to sew on the wicks was picture perfect with clear audio instructions, as well. no worries! took about an hour or so to do all 10...easy way to save some money" Darryl Cass, USA. [Verified Buyer] SILVER Member since Jan 2012
5th January, 2018 Beautiful, delightful to play with "These are my first fans. I haven't wicked them yet, but without wicking, the balance is perfect from the small center ring. The paint is pretty, though it does add a little stick on spins, so I'll probably put something between the gloss and my skin eventually. They're quite light, absolutely beautiful and are quietly musical if you hit them against something (if you hit one against your leg, the whole thing will vibrate and make this quiet but really cool sound for a few seconds, like a big alien tuning fork) I'm assuming they're not super durable, and have only dropped one once, but I haven't run into any problems so far. I'll try to remember to update this once I've used them more. Thus far, wonderfully inexpensive and beautiful fan frames." Charlotte Mccray, USA. [Verified Buyer] BRONZE Member since Dec 2017
18th December, 2017 Can not beat the price "These are very light weight. You honestly can t beat the price." Robyn Fuerte, USA. [Verified Buyer] SILVER Member since May 2017
29th November, 2017 Nice set "These came in about a week and a half. I really like them, but I think I prefer the lotus shaped ones for flowability. These are a little awkward to me, but I'm a first time fire fan spinner. Up til I got these, I only played with my silk veil fans." Sherry T, USA. [Verified Buyer] BRONZE Member since Nov 2017
13th November, 2017 ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE QUALITY KIT! "I normally spin fire Poi, but I decided to go outside the box with my fire toys! I just finished sewing the wicks onto the fans and I can t express how amazing the tutorial video was and how incredibly fulfilling it was to create my own wicks! I ll be lighting them this week once I get a little more practice with their weight. I can t wait to get some great photos for future photo contest for Home of Poi! Thank you guys so much for always being amazing!!! Liz the Human with Notice Me SenPoi" Liz Duke, USA. [Verified Buyer] SILVER Member since Dec 2015

4th October, 2017 Very Cheap "These are good fans to get if you don't have much money but be aware that they are cheap for a reason. If you drop them they will bend and become unbalanced." Customer, USA. [Verified Buyer] BRONZE Member since Sep 2016

8th June, 2017 Spider fans "I absolutely love my fans!!!

10th May, 2017 Great looking set of fans! "If you're looking into getting this set, do it! This kit arrived in a very reasonable amount of time from New Zealand to the U.S. It came with absolutely everything you need to assemble them, including an extra needle (which I needed because I broke the first one; hadn't ever sewed with a curved upholstery needle before.) The accompanying video is easy to follow and clearly narrated as well. I'm a beginner, but the fans seem a good weight and nicely balanced; I'm not hesitant about switching my grip or doing spins. I can't wait to burn them for the first time, and I'll likely purchase another set from Home of Poi soon." Tiffany Bennett, USA. [Verified Buyer] SILVER Member since May 2016
9th May, 2017 Perfect for Me "I wanted something cheap to begin with to start my fan journey and these are great! Took me less than two hours to finish putting together and loooove how they feel and look!" Julia Bridges, USA. [Verified Buyer] BRONZE Member since Feb 2017
