Capsule handles w/ FPC

Note: Unlike capsule handles with smithy cord, these rigs do not house a swivel as FPC is too thick for any appropriate swivels. 

What is FPC?

If you're into tech or contact poi, you’ve probably heard of VPC (Vectran®-Polyolefin Core), or “Willow rope" - the boating rope that Willow Solow introduced to the world of poi, and that many serious poi spinners consider the absolute best leash for poi for many good reasons. However the vectran core doesn’t melt, so it’s a PITA to adjust your leash. You can't just cut and melt it. VPC requires epoxy for a good finish, which is messy and difficult to work with. While the low-stretch of vectran is important when attached to a sailboat, your poi aren’t going to come close to stretching a rope this thick. 

We asked many poi spinners what their ideal rope was, and people said they loved VPC, but did not like how cumbersome it was to cut and finish. So we contacted the manufacturer of VPC and asked them to custom make FPC. FPC feels and handles like VPC, but you can simply cut and melt the ends to finish. A much nicer experience!

Note: FPC (like VPC) could shrink up to 4cm (1.5”), though probably less than that, and usually in the first few months of use. The shrinkage is due to the internal fibers shifting until they settle into a more stable state. We recommend you start with 1" longer than you’re ideal length.

Features & Tech Specs
Options

Poi head options: 

Depending on your poi heads, you'll need different modified parts to make your rigs work with FPC. 

  • If you have podpoi, you'll need 2x modified tri-rings and 2x modified capsule shells for FPC to fit your podpoi. 
  • If you have flowmojas, you'll need 2x modified capsule shells. 
  • For both of these options, you'll need to swap the electronics in your existing capsule lights for the rigs to work. 
  • If you have vision poi, you'll need to swap out your existing cord connectors with modified connectors.
