What are podpoi?

Years of engineering and development, consciously designed in every aspect, podpoi are the world's favorite LED poi, bringing you many adjustable modes and features ranging from awesome poi trails to gorgeous mood lighting.
Micro-USB charging, all-night runtime and a variety of charging options make it a breeze to keep your poi running during festivals and travel.
Made of silicone – the most non-toxic and environmentally-friendly plastic available – podpoi are super-cushy on impact and virtually indestructible.

Podpoi are an evolution of our commitment to bring you the beauty and joy of movement and light, and the launch of capsule 2 takes LED poi to a whole new level with wireless control and syncing, custom high-temp LEDs that help you shine brighter, and many more adjustable and programmable modes.

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 exactly like VPC, but you can simply cut and melt the ends to finish. A much nicer experience!

Note: FPC (like VPC) might 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.

Custom lengths:

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.
