Technora is our best feeling, preferred option. With great abrasion and temperature resistance properties (up to 932°F), Technora leashes allow fire poi to feel as comfortable and controlled as practice poi. However, this rope is temperature resistant, not fire proof. If you allow the leashes to rest in flames for an extended period of time (for example: setting burning poi on the ground with the leashes on top of the heads, or a severe mid-burn tangle that takes more than a five to eight seconds to unknot), the leashes may take damage. Technora leashes will be +/- 1/4" of the overall length requested.
Twist link chain is the slightly heavier and stronger leash option which feels not quite as smooth as Technora but has almost no maintenance. This chain catches on itself slightly when it tangles, making moves like Hyperloops easier. Our stainless steel chain surpasses the load requirements and corrosion resistance needed for typical fire use, and is stronger than cheaper nickel-plated alternatives.Swivels
Double Fingerloop Handles have loops typically used on the index and middle fingers. These cotton loops provide a solid, constant connection between you and your poi chains.
Single Loop Handles have a single large cotton loop that partially inverts to tighten on two fingers more snugly than double fingerloop handles can. *NOTE When measuring overall length, single loop handles are considered ~2" shorter when we build leashes to account for the reduced length that happens when you invert them to put them on.
PomGrips are silicone-formed handles made by LanternSmith. They come in a wide variety of colors and can be weighted for tossing. If a swivel is desired, PomGrips can either have the swivel sticking directly out of the bottom or can have a short Technora leash with the swivel attached to the end for alternative grip styles.
