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.

3 1/8 inch Flex Pendulum Poi PX3  
14th February, 2018

3 is the magic number
"I purchased 3 pairs of these, for myself and a couple friends. I have shorter arms and was expecting mine to be a bit long, so when I got them I just tied the cord on each and they're perfect now. The weight of these is awesome to practice tosses, which I had never experimented with until trying these. I really think these are a great investment, for any level poier!!!"

Sock pois
"These sock pois are my second pois. The ones I have are with a hempstring and are tangling easily to each other and are quite light. These sock pois are slippery and little heavier. With these sock pois basic moves are going so much smoother and nice and everything is much easier. The little hole, which from the ball can be changed, was so well concealed I thought it was sewed closed. I m happy with my purchase, these are inexpensive and good guality to my opinion. Toinen omistamani Poi. Ensimm inen on hamppunaruinen ja todella hankalat k ytt . N iden sukka poiden kanssa perusliikkeet onnistuu helposti ja mukavasti. Kolo josta pallon voi otta pois on hienosti piilotettu. Olin aluksi varma, ett mainittu reik on ommeltu umpeen. Olen eritt in tyytyv inen ostokseeni. Poit oli halvat ja hyv n n k iset sek oloiset :)"

Perfect Weight, Perfect Length
"These poi are phenomenal. They have the perfect amount of heft and resistance for practice poi. The plastic balls are quite forgiving if you end up hitting tender areas. Rubber handles make for a comfortable grasp no matter how you choose to hold them. Highly recommended."

Striped Sock Sand Poi  
7th January, 2018

Best poi for learning
"As most of us, i started spinning home made poi made with socks and balloons filled with rice. Make no mistake: nothing can compare with an actual prop made for spinning. The fabric is stretchy enough that if you spin them really fast, and they get quite long, but it always returns to its original size. The counterweight inside can leave a mark if you are spinning them fast, but you're not supposed to play with them like this :). Thanks to these poi, i got way better plane control and just learned how to make orbitals. And considering the price it's an insta-buy. Enjoy the flow!"

Neon green sock poi
"Very good quality for the price. These sock poi are better quality than ones I had previously owned, and the included balls seem durable and work better than tennis balls. The color is vibrant and easy to see in low light conditions. Wonderful to practice with, and I have revived a good number of compliments for them."
