Fire Rope Dart – Baby Monkey
The largest of our lightweight fire poi lineup also makes a perfect lightweight fire rope dart. At 90g the knotted rope wick is still pleasingly bulky and solid and soaks up a lot of fuel, and the wide rounded shape will throw a meaty flame.
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.
This three-pass monkey fist knot is a smaller sibling of the standard four-pass, and retains all the great properties of the knot without being quite so heavy. This makes it easier to get moving and means comparatively less strain on your arms and wrists.
Please allow 2-10 working days for orders to be made and shipped (if you need your item/s sooner, please contact us and we will do our best to make it happen).
