* 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. Every head is hand built with different lots of custom knitted aramid materials. Size and weights do vary a lot. If you have a preference, please put it in the "add notes" field.Leash Types
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 a five - eight seconds to unknot), the leashes may take damage. Technora leashes will be +/- 1/4" of the overall length requested.
Static Kevlar Rope is a solid core, stiff rope made from 100% para-aramid fibers. It is great for gun slingers, tosses, juggling and stalls. Like Technora it is fire resistant NOT fire proof and all of the same precautions should be taken as mentioned above.
Twist link chain is the slightly heavier and stronger leash option which feels not quite as smooth as Technora but has almost no maintenance. This chain catches on itself slightly when it tangles, making moves like Hyperloops easier. Our stainless steel chain surpasses the load requirements and corrosion resistance needed for typical fire use, and is stronger than cheaper nickel-plated alternatives.Swivels
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.
