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?

Posted:They are easy to make. Polycarb tubing and some chair leg stops to go on each end. Then put inside a couple LED lights, or fill up with glowsticks.
Glowbugs are light and the grip is non existant but you can get used to them and spin them well. Anything can be made heavier by adding weight and bicycle grip can be added in the middle to hold better.

All the best

Posted:Mr Loki has had a play with my electroglo sticks, so he knows roughly what the glowbug ones are like.


Benjamen likes heavy sticks cos he's a contact staffer first and fore most.

Personally i think the glowbug ones are quite nice, sturdy, well balanced, easily adpated (like mr malcolm says) and have the added advantage that yuou can take them into clubs and things where they generally don't let you take fire toys...

Posted:Hey,
I have the glo-staffs and I started off with them so don't know how fire ones feel. But they look good, you can exchange the lights and batteries easily and they don't hurt, which is good for a beginner.
Have fun

Contact junkie! biggrin


Contact without dance is like sex without wiggling.
A) it does feel as good
B) it does not look as good on film

Posted:I have the short globug staff which I personally love. As to the lightness/weight issue I took the washers out and put three 25 cent pieces under the washers on each end. I do have to warn you though... the end part where you turn the LED light on/off broke from getting stuck in between the washer but the light is still usable. Actually I am glad that it broke since I drop it a lot and that would turn the light on and when I tried taking the lights out it messed up the weight for me personally. Eventually I would like to have someone make me a custom staff as I have some varied and unusual ideas for one.

May All Your Prayers Be Heard...

Posted:Personally I think that the globyg staffs are a little on the short light side. A few people agree. I think that light system is a little off, I had to put putty in the ends to keep the LEDs going.
