glitterbomb100 contact poi - 10mm FPC - pair

As low as: $70.00

Presenting glitterbomb contact poi - now with FPC! 

FPC is a new poi rope, similar to VPC and a custom-made for flowtoys. VPC is a rope used in boating that advanced poi spinners consider the best all-round rope for poi manipulation, but it's difficult to cut and work with. We worked with the manufacturers of VPC to give you all you love about VPC without the hassle.

To make the unique glitterbomb poi, we custom-blended glitter to give the spheres a mondo glitter crackle that sparkles amazingly, especially in sunlight. A flowtoys exclusive, these poi come in 5 elemental theme colors - fire, water, earth, air & love. Each poi head comes with matching 3D-printed element knobs. 

Designed for beginners through advanced poi spinners, these contact poi are great for stalls, floats, tosses and all types of poi manipulation. If you prefer a softer, thinner, more flexible cord with a smaller poi head, you can also get glitterbomb contact poi 90mm with 6mm rope.

Sold as a pair.

1-2 week lead time: We have a handful ready-to-ship, but after they're sold out, they others have to be made. Glitterbomb poi are currently handmade in small batches. Even if you choose Express shipping, your poi may not leave our factory until 1-2 weeks after you place your order. If you are in a rush, please contact us or write your desired receiving date in the Customer Notes during checkout. We'll do our best to make magic happen for you.

10mm FPC rope

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.

Note: FPC (like VPC) can 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.
