  • Cherry Bomb - Fire Poi

Cherry Bomb fire poi heads are cylindrical, with large folds that increase their surface area and create a large flame relative to the head size. These have no exposed bottom hardware and minimal top hardware. They are also bottom weighted to help prevent wobbling in advanced moves like horizontal stalls.

Head Size
All Cherry Bombs are 2.5" wide with a varying length between 3.5" and 4.5".

3.5" Heads are a good average poi head (5.7oz), with a large flame and an approximately 4:30 minute burn time*.

4.5" Heads are among the biggest and heaviest of our poi heads (7.3 oz), with a large flame and an approximately 5:00-5:30 minute burn time*. We do not recommend them for beginners.

* Burn times are estimated based on recorded burns using pure "white gas" / Coleman's Liquid Camp Fuel. Actual burn times may vary based on individual spinning style, length of fuel soak, and other factors.

Leash Types
There are two main choices for leashes: Technora and twist link chain.

Technora is our best feeling, preferred option. With great abrasion and temperature resistance properties (up to 932°F), Technora leashes allow fire poi to feel as comfortable and controlled as practice poi. However, this rope is temperature resistant, not fire proof. If you allow the leashes to rest in flames for an extended period of time (for example: setting burning poi on the ground with the leashes on top of the heads, or a severe mid-burn tangle that takes more than five to eight few seconds to unknot), the leashes may take damage. Technora is recommended for intermediate and advanced poi spinners. Technora leashes will be +/- 1/4" of the overall length requested.

Twist link chain is the slightly heavier and stronger chain option. It feels smoother than ball chain, though not as smooth as Technora. This chain catches on itself slightly when it tangles, making moves like Hyperloops easier than with ball chain. Our stainless steel chain surpasses the load requirements and corrosion resistance needed for typical fire use, and is stronger than cheaper nickel-plated alternatives.

We use and recommend zinc-plated steel quick links, as they stay closed better than the stainless steel alternatives. You do not want quick links opening in the middle of a burn.

There are four choices for handles: PomGrips, UltraKnobs, Double Fingerloops and Single Loop.

Lanternsmith PomGrips are made from a grippy, high-temp rubber. They are weighted and shaped for tosses, and have holes through the middle to connect to leashes or swivels.

UltraKnobs made by UltraPoi, are rechargeable RGB LED silicone handles. This knob can be set to any of the colors of the rainbow, as well as strobe patterns that create intricate light trails while you spin.

Double Fingerloop Handles loop around the index and middle fingers. These cotton loops provide a solid, constant connection between you and your poi leashes.

Single Loop Handles have a single large cotton loop that partially inverts to tighten on two fingers more snuggly than double fingerloop handles can. *NOTEWhen measuring overall length, single loop handles are considered 2" shorter when we build leashes to account for the reduced length that happens when you invert them to put them on.
