Posted:Hey what are reliable companies that you guys have bought from? I've checked out products from Bearclaw and Luxotica, I wanted to know if these companies have good reps, and if there are other companies with good reps too.

Also, on an unrelated note, what's something that's contact ready. I don't get what that means.

Posted:I believe it is about the style of what you are doing. There is contact staff where the staff looks like it is stuck on you, check some mcp's videos

Is that what you were talking about?

Posted:Yo, contact ready was applied to fire toys... I was just wondering. I was checking out some of home of poi's stuff, but their prices are a little higher than what I'd like to be spending, especially when they're in Canadian prices. I was hoping to get something in the US. Hence why I wanted to expand my options, know what I'm saying?

Posted:Well...HoP is pretty competitively priced. You may be able to save a couple of dollars on shipping, taxes, and that annoying 5 dollar border services "paperwork" charge ( you know the one....the one where they charge you money to charge you taxes ) by buying inside Canada You'll still pay those charges ( and taxes ) importing from the US though.

Contact ready ??? my guess is that term applies to the types of handles available with some types of staves. eg, a contoured handle might not be all that contact friendly.

Posted:Home of Poi toys are reliable, well made and worth the money you pay for them... well that's what I've found. I've never purchased anything from the companies you've named so I can't comment on them.

Posted:I've purchased from HOP, Bearclaw and Renegade juggling. I've been happy with all my purchases. When it comes to fire props I tend to buy form bearclaw, but I am biased cause I know the owner. Living in the US I tend to like to support US companies, but at the same time the HOP store supports the HOP site so I like to support that too. smile

Posted:Bearclaw sucks. I'm sorry but it's true. The equipment looks like it was made poorly by an amateur.

Trick Concepts is by far the best for any fire equipment. And HOP for anything else, including accessories for building.
