Posted:Hey Adam, the Aerotech Staff at USD$323 uses recharables.I do know what you mean though, It is not as flashy as it could have been but it is very effective and robust.

Posted:ElectroGlo Staff Review:Well my staff came on friday! (thanx Malcolm) and after about 5 mintues of trying to undo the masking tape around the end i finally broke through and got my staff!Took it out that night and it does look as good as the video, it has the 2 LED lights in each end and theyre very bright! Looks great when u spin (btw i got the blue one).Only thing for me is that it isnt long enough for me as a single staff...im used to a bit longer, but i will probably buy another one and use them as doubles.Its going to be a great fire alternative this summer when a lot of the time there are total fire bans across the state which means no fire at bush parties

Posted:The free one you got was not as bright as the rest I had (less than half, but still pretty good). Unfortunately I sold all the good ones and only had a few left in the defect corner once I had finished the orders for that day. As soon as I get my new batch in I shall send you new LED's for your less brighter ones.I know it will blow your mind with the proper LEDs.Regards to the length. Shipping is just a pain in the bum cause they restrict lengths of what you can send. Otherwise I'd love to sell longer things.Kindest regardsMalcolm

Posted:Thanx Malcolm!!!The length will actually be perfect for doubles which is great!As a single its fine, will just take some time getting used to. spin it a little faster than id like and tends to go off and twirl on its own :PThats sucks about restrictions on length with shipping, but i guess its better than getting your staff in 3 pieces when its meant to be one!------------------ - Industrial design knows of no article more useful than the milk crate -http://wickeffect.cjb.net

Posted:Just a quick update. My first impression of the electroglow staffs is that they are light (weight), slippery and easy to spin. They are great for doubles, and I think they will be especially good for finger spinning as they move easily between the fingers and tend to run-on a bit. They run-on because they have weights (washers) under each end cap (rubber chair stopper). The ones I have are bright enough, and look really cool at night, however, you have to be spot on when you spin, because they look crappy if your spinning is a bit off centre (if you know what I mean). They are durable, and the only small problem I noticed was having to remove the rubber end caps to switch them on and off. Batteries are supposed to last about 50 hrs. I would also like a longer electroglo staff, but apart from shipping considerations, I don't think the LED's would support (be bright enough) for a longer staff.
