Hello can someone recommend where to get a really nice fire staff?

I'm pretty choosy and have searched loads of sites with no luck so far. I'm after a double or triple (80mm wicks) burner, ~1600mm length and 25mm diameter.

All the nice ones I've found so far are only 19 - 20mm diameter.

I know I could make my own and it looks as though I'm heading that way but is there somewhere that still makes them?

Any help would be appreciated biggrin

what do you want it for? contact or 'just' spinning?

Because ActiveAngel sounds like a feminine deodorant

for contact if you want to buy, the only staffs I've seen that I find good are fibre contact III from fire toys but only 1 x 4 inch wick per end and the staff does have some flex to it. if you want a contact double or triple header I would say make it yourself but leave at least a wicks width gap between heads or you don't see the seperate trails so well hug

A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

yeah I got a fibre contact III from firetoys for xmas: the weight and the silicone grip really help (although the grip is sooo sticky it sometimes rips your hairs out)

pretty good fun although the bounce can be a bit of a pain

the bounce can be good tho, can be useful when going from horizontal into vertical, that bit of flex can help it round

true but can be a pain for steves and angel rolls if your not perfectly smooth... not that I find the flex an issue anymore apart from elbow pops where it still goes a little crazy lol

Sorry guys I'm just not a fan of the new firetoys ones, they're just too sticky!

..but then again long hair is a pain in general with fire, so I might resort to shaving my head!
