Posted:Id say Fuel, maybe a new paint can for dipping, a first aid kit, some spare grips maybe. And something i just got that makes me feel SUPER profesinal is a duffel bag to carry everything in.....except my staff of course.

Posted:See i never got the whoel staff bag thing, your going to have to carry it anyway, i dont see a bag that you have to get your staff in and out of being too useful, maybe its just me but i prefer to just carry my staff and show it off.

If you're carrying lots of other toys (i.e. fans, poi, meteors, juggling balls), a bag that frees up your hands from a staff is very beneficial.



Besides, the Donatello 'staff-across-thine-back' look is sexier. tongue

Posted:I'm surprised no-one's suggested the best gift for a staff spinner, something they're sure to cherish above all else - a pair of poi wink

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:as been said on here before fishing rod bags are really good for this purpose

you get one with extra pockets on there and you can get all your toys in same bag

balls, clubs, poi eek and any other bits n pieces
