Poi? What is Poi? POI is one of the best things you can ever discover, AND the Maori word for ball on a cord .

The POI was used, many years ago, by the indigenous Maori people of New Zealand to increase their flexibility and strength in their hands and arms as well as improving coordination.

Wahine (female) dancers perform the Maori POI, a dance performed with balls attached to flax strings, swung rhythmically. The POI dance was originally used by the Maori women for keeping their hands flexible for weaving and by the men for strength and coordination required during battle.

The above Fabric Poi are more thought of as International Poi . Hand made using a variety of modern fabrics and lasting materials.

Pendulum Poi - Flex?

What is the difference between flex and regular Pendulum Poi?
The 'Flex' uses a 6mm Polyester Rope which as the name implies provides a more flexible cord.
The regular Pendulum Poi uses a thicker 8mm Polyester Rope, which can help with vertical stalls or any moves requiring a stiffer rope/cord.

Sweet Training Poi
"I was looking for a pair of durable, comfortable, non-stretchy sock poi that also looked good (not like I was just spinning with socks). I found all this in these nifty and inexpensive little poi! Great for training with before investing in more expensive light up poi. I'm a 5'6'' female with long arms and these work great for me- they'd be too long if I was any shorter but I suppose you could sew them to shorten them."

Ultra Poi with Comet Tail  
13th October, 2018

Wonderful Poi!!
"My order came faster than expected and the Poi are perfect! They came in their own carry pouch and they were the length I needed right out of the bag. The fingerloops are comfortable for long periods of spinning and the weight is perfect for stalls and other tricks! I always keep a little bag of poi in my purse and I love that these are poi that anyone can pick up and they love them as much as I do!"

2 7/8 inch Wrapsta Poi Color  
11th October, 2018

Very nice Poi, very good service.
"I really love the poi! For practicing I asked whether I could have one green and one orange poi, which was absolutely no problem. I am very happy with my purchase. The only negative thing was that the delivery took longer than 6 weeks and i had to pay an additional 17eur!! of tariffs on my 57eur order. Adding this to the shipping cost of 10eur , i payed a total of 27eur to ship two pair of poi to Germany. Maybe keep that in mind before you order even though none of that is HomeOfPoi's fault ofc."

Awesomely fun, and perfect!
"These poi balls are amazing! Especially for the price. They are strong, durable, balanced, bright and beautiful, and soft enough to not hurt when you inevitably whack yourself with them. I like the length I got, but will probably get a shorter pair as well"

Sock poi  
11th October, 2018

Fantastic for practice!
"This is actually the second pair of sock poi I have ordered from Home of Poi. I am extremely happy with both pairs.They are sturdy, unlike some pairs of poi I have owned in the past. The carrying bag that comes with them makes for easy transport, and makes it that much harder to lose one or both poi. The material is only slightly stretchy, making them much more viable for use than some other sock poi I have used, or tried to make on my own."

Pendulum Poi
"I never knew what to expect with my spinning when purchasing these but they are incredible and helped me take my spinning to the next level. I wouldn t recommend these for beginners due to the weight of the balls would hurt more when hitting yourself. They are balanced incredibly and flow easily. Amazing product."

Striped Sock Sand Poi  
10th October, 2018

Great for practicing
"Got these as a second pair of practice poi. The balls inside the socks are pretty light and they spin slow so these are great for practing wraps and weave type moves and such. The socks do stretch quite a bit so they take some getting used to if you've been spinning with more static tethers like I had. Overall great product for what they're made for. Thanks Home of Poi!"
