Level: Beginner to Intermediate Weight grade: Medium Plus
Monkey Fist Fire Poi are for those that want the combination of a bigger flame, a longer burn time (about 4 minutes) and more weight.
Each Monkey Fist is made with 2.4 metres (8 feet) of 10mm (3/8 inch) braided Kevlar rope wick. The flames on these Monkey Fists are about the same as our standard 100mm (4inch) rolled heads. The large amount of rope wick is what gives them a longer burn time. The combination of lots of wick plus a solid timber core is what gives them more weight.
The woven ball shape, which some say gives them better aerodynamics, also gives monkey fists a more elegant design than Rolled Wicks or Cathedral Wicks.
If you prefer a large flame with an even longer burn time but with less weight than a Monkey Fist, check out our Cathedral Fire Poi.
