Posted:I got my glowstaff in the mail today from HoP thankx But I have a question. It's a lot lighter than I'm used to for spinning. Any ideas on how to make it a little "heavier" without ruining the integrity / glow of the staff?

Oh, and red/blue, AWESOME spinning colors. smile

I'm weird. Just work through that and we'll all be fine.

Posted:mcp filled pepper pots with her beloved silicone sealant (or something that sounded like that anyway) and screwed them onto the ends of her neon husky glow staff to give it bit more weight.
at least I think that's what happened

are you wanting to do contact with it?

Posted:Well the Neon Husky staff I have is about right for me, weight wise. It's the HoP staff that's really light. I mean it's great, don't get me wrong, I'm planning on using it to learn throws and such. (reminds me, I need another one... dang.) But it just seems REALLY light.



This is the one I just got. It's also going to make a nice staff I can loan my friend who's STARTING spinning. "Here, use this, it won't break that easily." sunny



Urgh, 5:30 AM. I really should get some sleep. smile

Posted:1) Find something transparent and heavy. Attach it to your staff, one at each end.

2) Make sure it won't fall off when the staff is dropped or spun at high speed.

3) If it did fall off in the previous step, go back to step one.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?
