Fire Poi Set – Monkey Fist
These fire poi are big, and heavy, and throw a big fat flame that will burn for a long time. The poi of choice for many contact spinners, these are a staple in the flow world for good reason.
The monkey fist knot traces its whakapapa back to seafaring days, when sailors used the weight of the knot to throw lines to and from shore as they berthed. We use it to spin fire, and it works for all the same reasons: the ball of rope creates a considerable mass, and because the knot only tightens under tension it won’t unravel.
At 80mm across in every direction, these poi throw out a respectable amount of fire-- and noise. Our wick-core design means the full 140 grams of kevlar will soak up an impressive amount of fuel and burn for long enough for you to settle right into your spinning vibe. Pair with chain, or a technora leash and optional large knob for a well-proportioned contact poi set.
Your poi should have a total length no longer than your arm, from the centre of your palm to your armpit.
