Posted:alrghty, this week im gonna get myself a new staff

so basically, id like some advice on what i should look for.

I'd like something relatively thin (or thin enough so I can do finger twirling - which i incorporate into basically every one of my tricks so this is essential), something with good grip (my old staff was coated completely with silocone, so im used to something with a descent amount of grip), something with a fibreglass core (not wood, as i find it too heavy), and something which looks good!

my price limit is AU$180

any links to websites where i can order would be greatly appreciated.

what is http://www.juggleart.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=460&cPath=138
br>
this staff like? does anyone have it?

btw happy new year everyone

peace out, alex

i personally dont like the grip on the 3 piece staffs and they bounce with some throws. id suggest doing a search through the archives on hop as theres loads of information on buying and building staffs

what ben meant to say is that they are rather easy to bend, by handing them to silly people on beaches, and when you get them back they bounce like bitches....

still dont worry strugz, my new staffs are now on mail order so you can order one of those and get a good staff! biggrin

Posted:the first prototypes of what eventually become innercores actually had a sleek profile.

You gotta remember that when Callan designed them, staff 'contact' twirling as we know it was not yet a movement! (even sock poi was a novelty back then!)
thems are big moulded handles cus he's a big boy and likes to grip it, *giggles*

reshaping the grip after having already made a nice one involves expensive redesigning and retooling, plus there's luddites like me who don't hardly do none of them contact movements.

ps i never met lisa nor mech, but i'm safe in assuming that youse look not the same biggrin
