Posted:Newb attack. Weve all been there.
When a newb comes up to you the instant youve lit up, gives you some explanation about he is better at "it" that you are, and demands a to play with your so carefully hand constructed weight perfect staff/poi RIGHT NOW.
Then proceeds to show off to his mates doing a 2 beat or similar, as they decide they can also have a go, using your fuel. Usually ends in them dropping it/bending staff/hitting themselves in the nuts/them leaving for another beer.
..and usually followed by "can you fire breathe? here give me some vodka".
So! Whats your best excuse to stop them from TOUCHING YOUR STUFF.?!
Posted:It honestly depends on what I am doing really. Though for breakable's and things that can be damaged my usual response is for the purpose to fork over however much cash it cost me to purchase said object. You know, just in case they accidently drop it.
I have discovered that most people don't like letting someone else hold 50-115$ so they can screw around and potentially break something.
As far as making people shoe away I usually just start breathing flame when they get inquisitive ((not in their direction mind you ))
There is one other method of making people stay away.....

Posted:Originally Posted By: D3l1r1umI had brought my Led Poi and a pair of Sock Poi with me to this festival in NYC, when people asked if they could use them I just handed them the socks until I saw that they were decent.
The people who were good even taught me a few things and I passed them the LEDs if they wanted to use them. The people who werent just looked silly and my Poi were safe
That's a great idea. I will bring my practice hoops with me from now on!

Posted:I don't let anyone I don't know or I know isn't good use my Fire Poi actually on fire. Although I'll usually let people use them unlit or my Flowlights or even socks if I ever ever use them. I say my Flowlights because with the double mass on they're pretty much indestructible. Same with my Fire Poi. But not just anyone can ever spin my Isis heads lit or unlit, those are my babies =3
Posted:oooohhhh, hey, you have isis poi? I was wondering, how are those? do they have a decent weight? because im going to buy my first Fire Poi soon and was thinking of buying a pair of those but i need to find out how they are.
