Actually beamers on a staff shouldn't be as hurty as beaming poi. i find that unlike poi, i mostly slow down a bit just before i hit myself with staff, mostly.
How would you fix them on? There's nowhere safe to drill a hole in a beamer is there? And you REALLY don't want one to fly off and smack someone upside the head

Basicaly it is a aluminium staff with a spring running through the middle which attaches to the wire loops on the beaming balls. That way any big drops do not break the balls off the end of the staff. They just bend out of the way and then spring back in place.

Posted:Wow. That is a very smart idea. For people who don't plug the ends of their fire staff's they could use that to temporarily attach beaming poi onto the ends of their staff.

Posted:Hey, try this out....they are called streetligts-battery powered LED lights- (invented by one of my spinning teachers) and you put them into a clear pvc type plastic tube/stave...a little pricy tho... I can get you better prices on the streetlights than what they charge in the store...
Posted:I have one too but mine is a bit different.
I used some specialty nuts that you can fit into a 1/2" pipe that will accept a 1/4" threaded bolt or rod.Then I just took the old bolt out of the beamer and locked a longer one in and screwed it onto the pipe and
