Just a small note, Home Of Poi is a massive resource on anything poi or staff related, and all you need do to browse it, is to click on "search" which can located between "main index" and "my home" on the top line in the same bit as where it says your name.

Posted:You can buy acrylic rods....bung an led unit on the ends & shave patterns into the acrylic...works a treat. The only draw-back with them is with the led units on the ends they are prone to being smashed on the ground.

Posted:Don't worry about LED's... they aren't very bright. Use Electroluminescent wire, it looks soooo much better. And when you twirl it strobes so it looks like your staff is in 5 different spots at once. Get the kit that runs off AA batteries (Techno Strobe). You can get it in assorted colours

They sell clear staves and streetlights. I think they work pretty good... The only problem is the streetlights cause the break too easy.
