Posted:The way I learned was to take a full length shoe string (about 54 inches) and wrap the remaining stuff around your fingers until the glowstick reaches your armpit when you hold the string taught.

Posted:try attaching a glostick to both ends, then you have two handles, sort of like nunchaku, and lots of cool trick options... search on "colorchanging"
