Posted:It's great isn't it? ubbrollsmile

I bought my first staff about 5 weeks ago. A concentrate one with the red grip, and went to the Hobart fire meet the night after with a few friends who spin. The feeling of burning off and spinning with fire for the first time was incredible. About a weeks after, I got some extra wick and turned it into a double wick staff with bigger fireballs! ubbangel My parents were doubting my sanity for a little while, so I went out and bought the stuff I needed and made two short staves, 1m each to try and learn some doubles stuff which is really fun, but mighty tiring for the arms and shoulders. About 10 days ago, a friend taught me how to do a 3 beat weave with poi. Poi seemed fun, so I ordered some purple fluffy poi from homeofpoi. When they came in the mail and I opened the package I laughed for about 10 mins. Those fluffy poi are just fuzzy and hilarious!.. ubblol So now I'm learning poi and a few people are claiming they hate me for learning too fast. Now that I have no money from buying myself plenty of toys, I plan on ordering some fire snakes and 2.5" monkey fists when I do have the money. I'm definately obsessed. It's great isn't it?

Did anyone else start off the same way I did? weavesmiley

Posted:Hey! Gherkin Mate!!
Thanks for letting me burn with your long staff the other night. Good fun dude.

Makes me want to kinda take up staff.

Anyway. You gotta let me try your snakes when you get them. even though they will scare the tripe out of me.

Posted:Hey man!

You should take up staff. It's not a lot of money to buy/make one, and then you'll have more toys to burn!

I should be ordering the snakes and monkeyfists in a week or three, and I'll let you try the snakes for sure. I checked the weight of 2.5" monkeyfists vs. cube cathedrals, and the monkeys are only a few grams heavier, so I decided to go with them. weavesmiley
