Washers come with some variance in their weights, so there might be slight variation in knob head weight, even if you have the same number of washers in each.
weight w/o washers: ~10 grams
max weight with washers: up to 75g
You can fit up to 65g of washers in an element knob if you allow the melted end to stick out. or 50g (about 14 washers) if you keep it flush.
40mm diameter | 26mm height
Element knob handle washer hole: 25mm (1″)
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.
We do our best to match your requested length exactly, though some variation cannot be reasonably avoided. Poi leash tends to shrink a little over time - we aim to meet your requested length at a minimum, and it could be ~5mm longer. We take extra care to ensure that all poi in a set are as close to the same length as possible, though ~2mm variation is possible.
If you require tighter tolerance than this, we recommend you purchase enough leash to make at least two attempts yourself. Making very small adjustments to the leash length is very difficult, because the melted end breaks down with re-heating and needs to be cut off, which makes the lash at least 5mm shorter. Since the leash can shrink by more than that over time, we recommend you start a bit longer. Small variation in leash length is hard to feel/notice, and the lengths of all poi in a set matching is more important than the overall length of the set.
Handmade in the USA, these contact poi aka pendulum poi are durable, handle great, and will take your poi spinning to new levels, with an added sprinkling of pixie dust.
