GTS distributes several manufacturers selections of durable vinyl and coated vinyl poms generally structurally classified as DECORATIVE (small balls with elastic for hands, wrists, shoes, hair), TOSS (center-banded strands "puff-ball" with no grip), SHOW (medium to short strand balls with various "hidden" grips,  or TRADITIONAL (longer strands with various grips), plus pep SHAKERS and SPECIALTIES (hoops, sticks, and batons). Grips and strand pattern descriptions follow. Select strand width and length, colors and finishes (matte, "wet-look", "neon", metallic, iridescent, holographic, fluorescent), strand cluster patterns and inserts ("glitter", iris), and shapes (rings, shakers, custom). Most styles are manufactured within a week, request earlier if samples are desired. Contact GTS for assistance with larger poms or other custom features.
GRIPS 
V grips K, KF, B, BE, CE, X
Pwc grips CE, E, X
Grips are designed for strand capacity, strand appearance, and user convenience; therefore, some grips are suitable for only smaller quantities of strands (fullness), while others only extra fullness. NOTE: The aluminum coating on metallic poms yields a thicker strand, permitting fewer strands (fullness) to fit in a selected grip.

Most metallic poms are color coated and may "bleed" when wet. All vinyl deteriorates from extended ultraviolet exposure. Special finishes vary - request specifics.

A poly-vinyl finish has a slight sheen, wet-look a higher sheen, metallic (aluminized vinyl) is extremely reflective, neon colors are brighter, fluorescent shades respond to utraviolet light (for black-out effects), iridescent finishes refract a variety of pastel shades, holographic patterns are extremely reflective metallic 3-D effects.

HAND FLUFFING

Thin Strands: Starting from the outside of the bundle and working toward center, crush bunches of strands. Increased crushing and pom shaking yields greater fluffiness and fullness.
Wide Strands: From between thumbs and fingers, separate strands; then further separate, in opposite directions, individual adjacent strands and periodically shake to fluff.
