Contact poi one of the more recent innovations in the world of poi spinning. Stage balls are attached to strong cord and a counterweight, often a club knob, is fixed to the handle end. They allow contact juggling techniques to be applied and mixed in with regular poi moves. They are also great for doing poi throws as they are equipped with a counterweight as well as oversize poi head. Some innovators in this style of poi include Asaf “Poiboy” More, Cyrille Humen and Ronan McLoughlin.
Firetoys contact poi have been described as the “best pre-made contact poi” by the Thinking in Circles blog. We offer these in a standard and pro range and with poi head sizes of 80mm or 100mm. We’ve got rid of all components on the cord giving you a sleek and simple set of poi. We’ve integrated a bearing into the handle which replaced the usual swivel.
We also stock Play knobs and PomGrip handles for contact poi.
All the styles of contact poi come with brightly coloured heads and handles which enhances their visual impact so these props are also suitable for the stage as well as being great for practice.
The extra weight of contact poi also makes stalls, wraps and suicides a bit easier to learn. So buy your contact poi now before you get left behind!
