Posted:Hey everyone, im wondering what colors go best with each other when spinning. I've heard red and orange look nice because they look like fire. but what other color combos are good?

Posted:heh, haven't seen one of these threads in a long while.

I would have to say that having one purple and yellow on each string has got to be one of the most interesting combinations I have seen.

Posted:For me it would have to be Blue and Green!

Also get your hands on some of the huge 15 inch ones.
I think they also make "super-duper-recockulously" bright versions of those too.
Those are definately attention getters too. HEHE

Posted:Do you think it would look pretty cool to have two diferent color sticks on the same string? Like if i had a white and blue on the same string and the same for the other?

Posted:try putting 3 different coloured glowsticks on the end, they look incredible & not at all how you would expect!

Posted:attention is deffinately a must when it comes to spinning glowsticks... (i know i have seen another thread about this somewhere.)
I find that in the years of spinning glowsticks that one single color looks better, preferably both ultra high intencity orange or yellow last the longest.When spinning there is more fluidity in the way it looks.
The red,purple,pink,blue etc they dont last as long.
as far as 2 on the same string... tie one at the end of a string and tie one half way up the string, that gets some pretty good looks as well.
thats just my opinion,hope it helps.

Posted:I think two yellow on the very ends of a string and tied a bit further up having a red tied on the left side and a blue tied on the right side would look good. Or some combination of that nature.

Posted:right...this is a bit heavy but looks really heavy! (as in the wow factor not ow factor)

7 glosticks on each string..

red,orange,yellow,green,blue, indigo, violet.

if you go slow...7 different colours..

if you go fast.. you get white!

looks amazing!

Posted:i like red and blue.

blue and green is pretty kewl as well.

thats all i ever really see. same color ones are lame but are best when doing butterflies cuz you can make it look like they are bouncing off eachother.

ive also done red and green and it doesnt look all bad. i really dont complain as long as the glow is nice and strong.

Posted:If you're a fluid poi spinner with nice transitions, two of the same color looks cooler in my opinion. If you do quick, possibly jerky movements, two different colors look good as well I suppose.
