Posted:What's the typical fire staff made out of? Pipe. Only makes sense that pipe INSULATION would cover it. I didn't test this out yet but I figure if you put a few holes in a length of insulation and thread a shoelace or whatnot through the holes you could tie it around a wick. Cheap, easily replaceable if lost, can also work for tube core poi wicks.

Posted:You could put it the whole length of a staff (besides the middle grip area).

I think it's biggest advantage would be avoiding wick destruction rather then avoidind self-destruction of the individual spinning.

Posted:Glue kind of defeats the point. It's supposed to be something you slip on and off.
