GloFX LED Poi Sets and the Benefits of Ball vs Sock Poi

Even if you aren’t a poi master, don’t let those YouTube videos intimidate you—all you need is a quality LED poi product and you’ll have your friends in awe at your spinning tricks before the night is over.

If you are new to the poi scene, or just want a few poi pointers, you’ve come to the right place. There are three factors to keep in mind when it comes to the power of the poi.
The first and most important factor is dynamics, or how the poi feels when you use it. Does the poi feel right in your hand? Is it too heavy or too light? Can you easily control it when it spins?

Next, you need to consider functionality. There are many different kinds of poi. The pair you choose should be able to do the tricks that you want to do. If you are new to the poi game, a more beginner-level product is best to get your hands wet. If you are an experienced poi player, be sure that the product you settle on can handle advanced-level tricks of the trade. These are just some of the questions you need to consider when thinking the about the functionality of your poi set.

Last, but definitely not the least, is aesthetics. Do you like the look of the poi? Are you going for a futuristic-looking LED poi or a more straightforward pair? For aesthetics, it’s all about the looks.

If this is your first time around, sock poi is most advisable. Not only are sock poi simple and easy to learn with—they are also generally the cheapest. Whereas ball and other types of Poi are generally heavier which makes for faster spinning and more elaborate tricks.

GloFX has several types of LED Sock Poi that are great for a Poi beginner. Made out of soft PVC plastic that assures you won’t hurt yourself (or others), these poi are very safe and almost unbreakable. The knob handle provides for a secure grip on the poi, while the stretchy socks provide the right amount of tension for efficient spinning and learning tricks such as stalls, weaving, and the butterfly.

GloFX LED Sock Poi is great both for beginner and advanced spinners alike. Some advanced spinners in fact prefer to continue with socks throughout their spinning career. When you are ready to upgrade, however, there are many options such as 9-Mode Ball Poi and moving into custom sets such as Flowlights and Flowpoi. As you progress further, the most advanced users will eventually purchase a fully programmable set of Podpoi, or veer into Fiber Optic Poi such as a set of Space Whips. The options are endless, but the best place to start is with a set of GloFX Sock Poi. Ask any Poi master- and they will send you in the same direction.
