The Meteor Dart! Essentially two poi on the two ends of a chain with no handles! If you spin the meteor fast, the chain straightens to a single line and starts to behave like a staff. The meteor dart is also excellent for rope dart style wrap moves!
Classic monkey fist fire wicks provide maximum fuel absorption for longer burn times! Each fire head is followed by 16″ of Twistlink chain. The chain is connected to the rope with a super strong swivel and extra strength keyrings. This combination guarantees outstanding chain & rope reliability! The central rope section is made from 3/8″ wide cotton rope, which is hand-sewn at the connecting points. The cotton cord is durable but not fire resistant, therefore you should be careful not to place it directly into flames. For extra piece of mind, you can slightly wet the cord.
The meteor dart is an extremely fun, uncommon and impressive fire prop for fire spinners who enjoy staff, poi, or rope dart! Get the best of all three worlds with the Meteor Dart!
