Poi? What is Poi? POI is one of the best things you can ever discover, AND the Maori word for ball on a cord .

The POI was used, many years ago, by the indigenous Maori people of New Zealand to increase their flexibility and strength in their hands and arms as well as improving coordination.

Wahine (female) dancers perform the Maori POI, a dance performed with balls attached to flax strings, swung rhythmically. The POI dance was originally used by the Maori women for keeping their hands flexible for weaving and by the men for strength and coordination required during battle.

The above Fabric Poi are more thought of as International Poi . Hand made using a variety of modern fabrics and lasting materials.

Pendulum Poi - Flex?

What is the difference between flex and regular Pendulum Poi?
The 'Flex' uses a 6mm Polyester Rope which as the name implies provides a more flexible cord.
The regular Pendulum Poi uses a thicker 8mm Polyester Rope, which can help with vertical stalls or any moves requiring a stiffer rope/cord.

My first set of Poi!
"I'm very happy to have bought this as my first set of poi. While I waited for my order, I made my own with little bags of rice for the weights. It was OK, but the sandbags are just the right weight for me. I decided I wanted knobs, so I slipped cheap Superballs in the narrow end. Perfect! Love the way they just slide off your body and untwist easily when you make mistakes. That's where I am now... :-)"

3 1/8 inch Wrapsta Poi Color  
11th April, 2018

Black beauties: hard and heavy
"These contact pois look very beautiful, have a good haptic and spin in a very easygoing and smooth fashion. But: They are quite hard and heavy. As a beginner, I got myself several different pois made of different materials with different handles to be able to try out how different they feel when spinning. Getting hit by these contact pois does really hurt, so I will put the black beauties aside for a few weeks and train with them later on. It feels good to have something to look forward to!"

3 1/8 inch Pendulum Flex Color  
29th March, 2018

My Favorite HOP Contact!
"I've ordered ten or so contact over the years and every time I've gone with something a little different dimension wise, and so far these 3.15mm medium length with the new silicone handle design and 6mm cords are the absolute best I've played with from HOP hands down! They feel very flowy and are weighted perfectly to the point where I've already learned a couple new tricks and others that were difficult before are easier now. A+++"

Bought for my son
"My son Reese has been spinning for over a year now, you never see him without his poi in his hand. Even at work. His broke one day so he sent me a link to your site to order the ones he wanted. He loves them, very good quality. I love watching him spin, he is so good, and going to get better! He's spinning fire now too, so awesome!!"

Sock poi  
16th February, 2018

Amazing
"When I first ordered this I didn't expect such great quality because the price was so cheap. I could not DIY a set for less than what I paid for this, and I sew. The stitching quality is on point and I have yet to find a flaw. The packaging is phenomenal. The little bag it comes in is cute and branded and perfect. I can only assume they sell this set for so little so that when you need more expensive equipment you return to this store. If that is the game plan it's totally working. I will get all my poi products here. When you start a new hobby usually the start up costs are daunting. With this set I felt like I could get into it and not worry if I decide it's not for me. I have already started practicing and I'm super impressed. The weight is perfect. Not too hard where I'm afraid if it hits me. Not too soft that it won't spin well. I will definitely be coming back to this store when I get my bearings with this."
