Ok, i’ve recently found a new site dedicated to bringing the poi community closer together. Poi and Friends is a joint German/English site where spinners can talk to each other about anything poi related. There are loads of forums to join and they have an absolutely huge library of videos!!! Seriously, its massive!! At the mo, the site’s relatively small and new, but I reckon it’s gonna take off at some point soon. So go and check it out; WorlfofPoi has an account there so add me as a friend, reccomend it to other spinners you know, and remember, WorldofPoi also has Facebook now too!!!
Brand new for all of those out there who just love playing with Fire….HoP’s ‘Fire Whips‘!!!!! As with all HoP products, it’s made to very high standards, and is one of the best fire whips out on the market. The one I’ve linked to is the smallest, 4ft whip, but for those of you who are looking for a bit more of a challenge, they do them twice that length!!!!!!
Sorry it’s been so long since my last post, I’ve been pretty busy lately:) but yes, it’s true, World of Poi does now have facebook!! There’s a page set up which is blank at the moment but I think I’ve set it so that anybody can upload their photos. I’d like it to be a place where people can post photos and videos and share what they’re up to. Just log onto facebook now and like us. Or click here, thank you:)
Everyone has their pair of lucky socks or underwear and poi should be no different. All poi are different and therefore are going to behave differently when you spin them. Some are heavy and spin slow, allowing greater control. Lighter ones, on the other hand, need to be spun faster and can create stunning special effects. Having one set of poi that you spin best with is no bad thing. People think that they need to be able to spin equally well with fire poi and sock poi but this is rubbish! The two sets of poi are so different that it would be near impossible to do as good with one as the other. Pick the type of poi that you think gives the greatest visual effect or you find easiest to spin, this way you will feel more confident when you spin in front of other people and you are probably going to perform with fewer mistakes:)
