Posted:I FINALLY DID MY FIRST BURN!
i don't have money for pro equipment and I've only been training for about a year so I normally just tape glowsticks to a stick and play.
However, This last weekend I was staying with a friend who spins. He let me use his equipment and I got to spin a real fire staff for my first time.
It's so very different. The heat, the whoosh sounds, the burns(lol), IT WAS INCREDIBLE! The thrill I got easily beats any skateboarding or anything else i have ever done.
I have a new love in my life, that love is fire staff.


I'm not strange... I'm just not like you.

Posted:Thanks,

I just made a ghetto fire staff, I was careful about how I made it and it should be safe.
Can anyone tell what a good piping would be to use for a better staff?
I really want to make it to one of the Portland Firejams sometime, it sounds like a lot of fun.
Anyone else from the NW let me know, theres not a lot of firedancers around here.

Posted:IMO, the best way to make a firestaff is to use a hollow aluminium tube with a bit of oak dowel inside each end.



Congrats on your first burn and welcome to the board!

That's going to change... When I have the money and Indigo have a huge roll of 4" wick. ubbrollsmile

First burns are awesome. First burns with new toys are almost as good. wink
