Posted:Hello and welcome dobz3!

That sounds like a solid idea to me but hav you thought about making your own staff? it does work out cheaper if you have the know how.

Any way were are you at? plus tell us so basic stuff about yourself, name, age you know the kinda stuff smile

Posted:Sounds like a good 1st staff to me, and glo staffs are fun (yey for areotech ubblove )

staff will last ages, the wicks...varies on how much you drop your staff, but a while, and they're not hard to change. and then my only advice....enjoy your self biggrin

Melbourne Workshops



Check out that thread for regular Melbourne meet-ups and maybe contact any of the prolific members on it: Tyr, Bender, Stone - they're all awesome individuals and very friendly...
