Posted:Well, I just read every post in every forum that contains the words 'electro glo' and couldn't find anyone who has actually reviewed these things yet

When you post up the pictures, can you also give us a review - how easy they are to fingerspin, wind resistance, weight, durabilty etc.I spin on grass half the time, but the other half is on concrete in carparks, garages etc. If I try to pull off a throw and miss, what are the odds I have just wasted AU$90 odd????Please give us your best evaluation. I'm going to get one anyway I think, and just be ultra careful with it. I also prefer the colour green, but if it is really dim and blue is easily brighter by far then I guess I'll have to go blue, does anyone have one of each to do a comparison? Also can you test how long the batteries last Cantus. Thanks, hopefully you can finally answer these questions that have plauged mankind since the dawn of time

Still, I'd love to know from anyone who owns these were they worth it? I'd love to be able to twirl where fire can't go. Bah, I'll probably eventually get both a green and a blue and twirl both rofl and make it a moot point.

Posted:Absolutely worth it. I found it quite light and hard to grip at first but you could add tape to the middle if you need more grip. They are durable - I've chucked mine about loads and it's still intact. They look cool too. Sorry but I haven't got any pics. But you're never going to guess what I did? Was taking it to a club on Saturday night, a little mashed, and I left it on the bus! Oh no! So my glostaff is in the hands of London Transport Lost Property, which worries me slightly. Best comment I've had made to me while in a club with my glo-staff: "Wow! That's the biggest glow stick I've ever seen!" hee hee!Hope both your staves arrive soon and bring you lots of joy!Sunbeam------------------Life in the circus ain't easy but the folks on the outside don't know yeah well the tent goes up and the tent goes down and all that they see is the show and the ladies on the horses look so pretty and the lions are looking real mad and some of the clowns are happy and some of the clowns are sad.

Posted:I haven't seen the blue one in action. I have a red one and a green one. They are both quite bright. I can't imagine the blue being very much brighter though.They survive bouncing off concrete having, as they do, rubber stoppers on the ends. Several people have complained that they are a little too light. This is easily remedied with the addition of a small weight, eg a few coins, to each end.Fingerspin wise they are very smooth and comfy. I cannot see any need to add grips as they are comfortable enough to hold and come supplied with a little shiny tape denoting both the centre and the colour (

Posted:For my evaluation write-up (which is located in the Social section because I also evaluated the Buzz Poi) check herehttp://www.homeofpoi.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/002130.htmlThey are run on 3v watch batteries, which can last years, and are fairly cheap and easy to replace. The weight is a challenge I enjoy. The center is marked with tape but I think I am going to add a bit of see through packing tape for a grip. The actual diameter is not so bad, especially if you have used the three scetion staff which is pretty round. It takes adjusting, but all new toys do. I adore mine, truly!PWB took photo's last night of my son and I both twirling around with it. I will see when I can coax him to put them up. I also have to add this, and it is really the coolest thing....you know how if you take a pencil, hold onto it at one end and wave it up and down it creates the illusion of bending? So does this thing!!! When you spin it in a simple forward rotor, the light refracts (sp??) and makes the staff appear to bend at the ends. My housemate first saw it so we all stopped to take note of it. It looks like a twisted pinwheel when going around. And the light is really different than fire and is, for lack of a better word, freaky. I adore it!------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...http://www.pyromorph.com

Posted:hiyai got myself a green and red staff for christmas and haven't been able to put them down since they arrived 3 weeks ago. they are a whole world of fun and when i get bored spinning them i pretend i'm a jedi!!!diameter is fine, weight is ok though they sometimes bounce out of my hand when i toss them high and fail a catch, seem to be quite durable - having survived numerous drops on concrete, the centre marking tape is useful and also tell me which one is which colour, they are smooth plastic tubes but i have no problem with grip, finger twirling works fine, and they look truly awesome when it is dark with minimal light. they rock.i think i might have to get a blue one as well soon - because i can!have fun, God bless and have funJoshua

So happy infact that I'm going to be getting a second so I can do double staff with them. Now I've just got to choose a colour - should I go another green so they match, or take a blue. Do green and blue go together anyway... hmmm. So hard to decide

Also - the performance practice poi are excellent, very well weighted and simply fly through the air. Bit lighter than I'm used to obviously, but I know I'll get the hang of them soon enough. I was playing around with them all lunch break today

Haven't had a chance to watch the videos yet as I work all day, but I'll be sure to get at least one in late tonight after spinning in the park.

Posted:Yay!!! I got my staff today, and I went straight into the garrage to practice... it's great, nice weight and length, but I noticed that even after half an hour of spinning it, the LED's weren't completely filling the whole staff, only maybe 6 to 7 inches on each side then just sorta fade into the white film. Is it because of the batteries? or it's supposed to be like that?

I've ordered both a red and a blue so now I will have one of each colour. Only fault I have with them is that the plastic used to grab the batteries out fatigued and snapped already from popping the rubber end on and off so often. However, it is no biggy, I'll just use some needle nosed pliers to grab the baterries out when I need to replace them.

I have one of each colour. As soon as one of my friends lets me 'borrow' his digital camera I will take a short video of each one and host it on a site I'm making. They are very cool, and all are pretty much equally bright.Problems I have had so far: I have removed the plastic strips from the ends. They just get in the way and make it hard to pull the stopper on and off. On my green staff (which has been in a few battles now lol...ie heavy usage), the Led units have been pushed into the tube, the tiny plastic tabs supposed to stop this were bent back. Admittedly, this is my fault - the strip inside the tubes isn't a uniform length, when it goes all the way to one side, I would bang the end sharply on the ground to get the strip back into the middle.I won't be doing that on the other two however, I'll just have to put up with the strip sometimes being at one end or the other. I think a better measurement of the strip would be a good thing to look into, on all 3 staffs the strip is different length. On the red one it is almost perfect, managing to cover both diodes. On the blue one, it is a little worse, not covering both. On the green there is around 2-3 cm's of empty space on one side or the other depending on how often I hit it on the ground to even it up lol.Overall though these are niggling details and of no real importance. For it's function and price, I am extremely happy with the Glo staffs. They are very durable (except for the plastic tab thing), lightweight, easy to finger twirl etc, and look very cool in low light conditions. Taking them out again tonight actually
