Posted:Hey everybody, I discovered this as part of a mistake on my behalf but think that it is really valuable to know. I started to learn staff with a super short peice of wood (29 inches) and while i found most of the proper staff moves really hard without the length and weight i was able to do the most amazing throws. I have recently bought a short twirling staff from here and have found that not only are most of the full length staff move possible but also all of the throws. This is great if you like to keep a lot of speed in your performances and practice. I highly recommend the short twirling staff, it has been like a dream.

Posted:I started with a short staff a while back as well, and as u say it is awesome fun. Mine was about 25 inches, but i found that it was too light so i attached some chain to the ends and then some more kevlar, so it is now a mixture of staff and poi with 4 wicks, 2 chains, and a short staff. It is hard to get used to, coz the chains slow it down and throw out the timing but well worth a go if u can be bothered making it
