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.
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., hitting objects, "fire-rings"). Fiberglass core rope lasts longer in high-heat situations, and creates a slightly heavier monkey fist.
All Egg Fire Poi Heads are 2.5 inches (6.35 cm) in diamaeter, plus or minus 0.125 in. / 3.2 mm. The wick height (just the KEVLAR(R) material), as well as the height with the standard attachment, can be derived from the following list:
||3.5 in. tall (3.75 incl. attachment)|
||4.5 in. tall (4.75 incl. attachment)|
Tiny (1.5 in.) and Extra-large (5.5 in.) are available as custom items.
Egg Fire Poi Head Options:
- Secondary Ring: For those wanting the option of attaching more poi heads (for double poi or triple poi), rings are installed on both the top and bottom of the head.
- Primary Swivel: A ball-bearing swivel is installed as the primary attachment, instead of a ring. This is a very common choice for technical fire poi dancers.
- Secondary Swivel: Similar to the Secondary Ring option, but one end has a ball-bearing swivel and the other has a ring. Available as custom items.
Fire poi heads are sold as a pair.
