Benefits of our design:
The monkey-fist poi-heads form perfect flaming circles & feel a lot like contact poi.
Minimal Metal Hardware:
We import special metal pieces which maximise strength & durability while minimising overall surface area. This means there is less risk of metal burns & more focus on the fire itself (rather than the clumsy metal hardware found in most fire poi designs).
Longer Burn Time + Brighter Flames:
Many fire poi are made with wick which simply doesn’t perform as well as the knit rope wick we use. We’ve tested burn-time & life-span of different wick types for years (including tape wicks and the type of rope wick typically used in monkey fist poi). The knit-rope wick soaks up much more fuel than other types of rope wick resulting in longer burn time & bigger/ brighter flames.
Choosing Fire Poi which are right for you:
Choosing the right specs for your fire poi is important. After all, why buy custom made fire poi unless it’s to give you the exact right fit & feel? The order form below will present you with many options for size, length, handle type etc. In addition to the tips we’ve listed below, you can read Srikanta’s blog on how to choose the right fire poi for you. If in the end, you still have questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
HOW TO CHOOSE POI LENGTH:
We measure the length of the poi from knuckles to the end of the wick. Most people prefer a length that will not touch the ground when spinning. With your hands in a fist at your side and knees slightly bent, the poi wick should be a couple of inches above the ground. This measurement is best taken from an existing set of poi, but can be estimated – most common length is 60-66cm (24-26″).
