Halo my darlings

right i'm wondering, i adore my staff but i want to introduce something new into my stuff (i dont have an act lol!)so i was wondering about the above two. I have done uni before but what sort of price should i be looking at? would looking on ebay help for a practice version or would i be buying a deathtrap?

as for devilstix, well i thought fire ones cos it at least relates to my staff. but i know nothing about them at all. Except theres a brand called "vicki's sticky sticks" which i think is wicked

so, does anyone know any sites that could help me out here or any ideas as to how and incorporate all three (would that be mad!)

A company called Butterfingers have a real big selection of most juggling props you'll ever need. They got loadsa different style unicycles, dont know what'll be the best for you though as I havent got into yet (One day!) I have a Radical Fish fire devilstick that I really like using. Havent tried any other makes though so don't know how they compare. If you haven't tried devilsticks before get a practice one first to learn on as they're lighter and stick better.
Cant remember the Butterfingers web address, but if you search on google you should find it. They don't have online sales, but if you fill in your details they'll send you a catalogue, usually within a few days.

Its a fish!

All three wouldn't be too hard, with a LOT of practice.

I would suggest learning one stick devilsticking...how to unicycle (if you don't know already), and some simple finger spins or single-sided staff moves.

Then you could do all three at once! (I can currently do any combination of two of those at once, and sort of do double long staffs on the unicle, but it's not very pretty to watch... )
