6th April, 2019 Purchase Pair of Medium Lotus Fire Fans 2inch Wick Kit - Make Your Own Would not recommend "Russian grips are generally pretty huge, but these are especially large. There isn't a hope in hell of being able to transition to the finger loop because it is beyond the extent of the reach of my finger when I have the grip in hand. The grip is also so large that it's tough to do finger spins with the main grip. I think if the grips were an inch smaller they would be far less unwieldy. The black powder coating makes generates a bit of friction, too. It's smooth but not metal smooth. Above all else though, these are ridiculously imbalanced. They are so frustrating. I feel like trying to use these set me back a bit. I don't think these would be particularly good for anything other than belly dancing/slow movement/non-spinning." Andersen, Canada.

28th August, 2019 Purchase Pair of Medium Lotus Fire Fans 2inch Wick Kit - Make Your Own Thinner needles? "I am SO excited to try out my new fire fans. I wanted to save money so I got the fans that needed to be assembled at home. The video on the HOP website looked very straight forward, and I love sewing, so I didn't think it would be so hard. When I got the fans and started sewing the wicks on, it took FOREVER. I think the needles provided were much larger and thicker than the ones in the video. They did not go through the wicks easily and I had to REALLY PUSH AND TUG on them to get the needle through. Because of this, I have only sewn on 2 of the 10 wicks. :( I'll get there eventually.... I'm still excited." Sara, Canada. [Verified Buyer] SILVER Member since Jun 2019
Reply from Home of Poi: "Support provided: The needles we send with the parcels are thinner than the needles we use as the thinner ones are more comfortable to push through. We do use rubber Thimbles in-store due to having to stitch so many this does help grip the needle. Also if your wicks are wrapped to tight this also makes them solid and hard to stitch through. You could try loosening them off a bit and once you have finished stitching them twist bit tighter."
24th July, 2019 Purchase Pair of Medium Lotus Fire Fans 2inch Wick Kit - Make Your Own Maybe not a great purchase for your first fans "These puppies burn HOT. Like... knuckles are burning for the first minute of burn time. I bought them for my girlfriend and she's not to keen for them. I will say for the price, they are worth it... but if you're serious about getting into fans and fire, just spend the money on something a little better. Sewing the wicks on was a breeze, I suggest using something to dry your hands out to handle the needle work. I used chalk for rock climbing." Kunkel, USA. [Verified Buyer] GOLD Member since Jan 2015
5th June, 2020 Purchase Pair of Medium Lotus Fire Fans 2inch Wick Kit - Make Your Own Great fans, should have been packaged better "This kit to wick your own fans is great, and I love my fans. However they were just put inside of the bag I ordered with them, with no other protective packaging/wrapping, so they have some scratches on them which is disappointing. Wish they could have been wrapped individually inside of the bag to protect them." Summer, United Kingdom. [Verified Buyer] SILVER Member since Apr 2020
14th April, 2020 Purchase Pair of Medium Lotus Fire Fans 2inch Wick Kit - Make Your Own DIY 5 wick Lotus Fire fans "I actually had bought these for a friend, but I have reviews to share. Obviously beautiful shape and design, looks great on fire. DIY fire fans are amazingly easy to put together as long as you follow the instructional video! My only con is how flipping hot they get. Which I think is unavoidable with that many wicks. I have a pair of 5 wick Spider Fans and it s great, but it takes a lot more awareness of heat and your body and can positioning... also possibly a pair of Kevlar sleeves. Ha." Lin, USA.

16th December, 2018 Purchase Pair of Medium Lotus Fire Fans 2inch Wick Kit - Make Your Own Good way to save $ "I got the DIY fire fans. They are strong and sturdy but it is difficult to sew them. The video makes it look so easy but unless you sew a lot or are familiar with curved needles it really is a pain in the butt. I am still working on them weeks later. I think spending the extra $30ish dollars may have been worth it in my opinion." Jamie, USA. [Verified Buyer] SILVER Member since Nov 2018
11th October, 2018 Purchase Pair of Medium Lotus Fire Fans 2inch Wick Kit - Make Your Own Beautiful "I was super grateful for this DIY kit because it was much more cost effective. A labor of love though! Sewing the wicks on isn't as easy as they make it look if it's your first time, but by the third wick I had it down! Highly recommend using a thimble because your thumb will go raw trying to push the needle through the kevlar so many times. The fans themselves are heavy and take some getting used to, but they're super beautiful and I love them! Sewed my own covers for them too!" Cheyannela, USA.

22nd December, 2016 Purchase Pair of Medium Lotus Fire Fans 2inch Wick Kit - Make Your Own Beautiful fans "Getting the kit was a great way to save money on my first set of fans. The sewing took some time, and I broke one of the needles but luckily was sent two, with the helpful turotial I got the hang of sewing the wicks after a few. I wanted russian grip fans for spinning, and these are a bit heavier than I was expecting, but I can do lots of moves that I do with my hoops and poi with them. Haven't lit them up yet, but tonight will be the first burn, so I can't comment on the flames yet. Overall I am satisfied with these as my first pair, and shipping was pretty fast too" Planet, Canada. [Verified Buyer] SILVER Member since Nov 2016
23rd June, 2020 Purchase Pair of Medium Lotus Fire Fans 2inch Wick Kit - Make Your Own Just like how I imagined my dream fire fans to be! "I was so excited to get my fire fans, and when the order arrived, I was double happy that the product was even better in real life, when I hold them! The lightness of the fans allow you to make your moves smoothly, in addition to the perfect design and the quality that never lets you down. Thank you Home of Poi for your great service in these times that we are afraid as customers from dishonest descriptions of the products. You deserve all the respect because you earn it! You are my life-long source for my performance gadgets â™¡" Tozluklu, Turkey. [Verified Buyer] SILVER Member since Sep 2019
13th February, 2020 Purchase Pair of Medium Lotus Fire Fans 2inch Wick Kit - Make Your Own Lotus fan kit "I am totally in love with my new lotus fans! They have the most beautiful design. I've been wanting them for a while now so I am so happy to finally have them. I am a very DIY person so to have the option to complete them myself is epic. The instructing video is great tho, because otherwise i would have done a different kind of stitching which may have not worked so well. Thank you Home of Poi for fantastic product, service and fast shipping!" Maya, Czech. Republic. [Verified Buyer] BRONZE Member since Sep 2016
8th February, 2020 Purchase Pair of Medium Lotus Fire Fans 2inch Wick Kit - Make Your Own Excellent product and communication about delivery "Online transaction went through smoothly. Communications about delivery dates to USA were timely and accurate. Fan kit arrived in a well padded bag. All components, in the correct quantities, were included. The welds and finish on the fans themselves are all smooth and aligned. The on-line video instructions for sewing on the wicks is easy to follow. I'm not as fast a sewer as the video instructor, but the wicks are all on securely and with all threads hidden. Definitely worth the effort to save the cost, and to be confident and knowledgeable when the time comes to change the wicks." John, USA. [Verified Buyer] SILVER Member since Dec 2019
