New person here.
Tried staff a few years ago and really enjoyed it, have been meaning to get my own practise one for ages but for various reasons kept putting it off...until now!
Ive been doing a lot of research, on this site and others... but due to the differences in american/UK measurements, ive been having a few issues.. (im UK by the way.)
People seem to say that a good size for a contact staff is 5'... but I have only been able to find fire staffs at this length.
All the practise/contact staffs I can find are 100cm (3.2ft), 120cm (3.9ft), and 140cm (4.6ft).
So yeah.. I'd like a decently weighted staff that I can bash about and drop without worrying too much, cos im clearly going to. But I dont want to end up getting one thats too big, and therefore (potentially?) making learning much harder for me.
Is it better to start with a shorter or longer staff?http://www.firetoys.co.uk/juggling/Flames_n_Games_Lumo_Contact_staffs.html
These are the ones ive been looking at. Though if anyone has any suggestions, I'd be very grateful
Aaaaand... my writing is complete! Thanks!
