Medium kevlar poi are the most common weight fire poi type used by fire spinners. They’re based on a very old fire chains recipe that has been updated to make them as beginner-friendly as possible. Each wick has about 4 feet of kevlar “cathedral” folded into a 2″x2″x2″ wick. They are appropriate for practice spinning, or lighting up with any standard fuel type. These poi come standard with our kevlar 4-in-1 grips and #20 steel ball chain.
This reasonably generic design has been run through the Bearclaw process to create a smooth and eminently functional tool. Care has been taken to provide a unilinear balance for a smooth spin. The bottoms have been covered with a layer of kevlar to prevent heated metal burns. The standard 4-in-1 grips allow fire performers to select self-cinching grips, static loops, double loops, or a special quick release grip we call “the nail.”
Sold in pairs, your choice of length.
Because different wicks have different heights, and chains have different types of connectors, we do not accept “chain length” for poi lengths. All poi measurements should be from the hand to the bottom of the wick. If you don’t currently have poi, or aren’t sure if they’re the right size for you, just measure from wrist to armpit.
