This Monkey Fist variation is only available at Fire Mecca. Instead of growing in all directions as Monkey's Fist Fire Poi Heads do, Egg Fire Poi Heads have a constant diameter, and increase in height only. The benefits include the ability to do tighter moves with larger wicks, burn time similar to MoonBlaze Fire Poi Heads (e.g., 8 minutes for large heads using lamp oil), and more fuel absorption due to the use of a mostly-wick core.
For comparable wicks that can hold more fuel, have a larger flame, and have an excellent burn time, please see our MoonBlaze Fire Poi
Two rope core materials are available: Fiberglass-core rope (K1RBF) and aramid-blend core rope (K1RBK). Aramid core rope will last longer in a physically hostile environment (e.g., kicking, hitting objects, "fire-rings"). Fiberglass core rope lasts longer in high-heat situations, and creates a slightly heavier monkey fist.
The standard #15 nickel-plated steel ball chain is shiny and swivels at every link. The other standard features are 3.0 mm zinc-plated steel quicklinks and leather single-loop handles. The poi body can be upgraded to #15 stainless steel (SS) ball or twist link (TL) chain for a small additional cost, and handles can be upgraded from single-loop (SL) to double-loop (DL). Ball chain is not suggested for chain wraps and hyperloops. Please consider twist link chain in these cases. We now offer a no handle option for those who have their own handles or want Free Hand or Pom Grips.
If you need additional customization, such as integrated swivels or custom poi leashes, visit our Poi Parts section to create your own poi!
Glow sticks, glow poi balls, and many other types of LED equipment can be easily attached to the chain through the use of the pre-existing quicklinks.
Fire poi come in any length, up to 30 inches, measured end-to-end. If you are not sure what length is right for you, a good estimate can be made by measuring from your fingertips to your chest, with your arm held straight in front of you. Most measurements end up between 21 and 28 inches.
