Features & Tech Specs

Tech Specs

Glitterbomb head weight:

90mm diameter - all colors = 150g
100mm diameter - all colors = 200g

Leash cord types:

6mm smithy cord: Solid-braid pre-stretched polyester rope custom made for poi spinning by Lanternsmith. Smithy cord is a long-time favorite, it's supple and durable, won’t shrink or stretch and is lightweight and responsive for faster styles and wraps. Easy to cut and adjust the length by tying a knot. you can melt the ends to create attachments and prevent fray. Great for fast, precise and advanced spinning, and loved by beginners.

10mm FPC: Double-braid polyester rope custom-made for flowtoys by the manufacturers of VPC, AKA “willow rope”, generally recognized as the best rope for contact poi, tossing and other advanced poi manipulation. FPC is basically identical to VPC, but with a meltable polyester core for easier assembly and modification. FPC’s perfect balance of thickness, suppleness, stiffness and lack of stretch give it tight but forgiving response, you can still do tangles and wraps but it slows them down a little and makes catches easier. The ends can be melted to create attachments and prevent fraying (unlike VPC). Great for slower styles, forgiving and easy to handle, many people upgrade to this rope as their practice advances. Also recommended for beginners.

11mm static rope: This high-tech kernmantle "static” climbing rope from Tendon ropes is our stiffest option, with great grip and zero stretch it is excellent for poi juggling.

Washers also vary in thickness, so there may be some variation in knob weight, even with the same number of washers in each knob. We will do our best to match the knob weight you request.
