ok, wow......

i need to check this thread more often as i can see ive missed a lot. (my posts tend to always start that way dont theyubbrollsmile)

so, is this meet in groningen going to work? ive heard a lot of talk about it, but no times or agreements on places to go. in my opinion, which is often disregarded but ill give it anyways, it is really cold outside, especially at night, so if we were to go to groningen we would need a place to go inside to when we all freeze.

on a different topic, does anyone know where to buy 10cm kevlar. i decided to make my own staff pOp, but maybe ill ask you about the screw mecanism in the future. otherwise, does anyone know where i can order it.

either way, i promise ill be more active from now on tongue

grts.

Hey there Stickman, I was wondering, what do you need 10 cm. of Kevlar for? Maybe you ment 100 cm, cause when nyoure making a staff, you should place at least 50 cm of Kevlar on each end! The jugglestore is the place, indeed, the adress is:

between the Munt and the Waterlooplein Market
JUGGLE-STORE - Staalstraat 3 - 1011 JJ - Amsterdam - The Netherlands

They also have a website, it's:

https://www.juggle-store.com/

And this site is in English, so anyone could read it :-) I love those guys!

hehe, I'll show & teach you the double Poi pickup move next time we meet smile, patience... It needs some perfection as well, I can't execute it every time...

And about Grunningen... Weatherforecast: a 60% chance of rain, 1- 3 mm, wind: 4 bft... Temperature: 6 degrees....
Marc And Carolin can't come....
So I guess some other time frown...

well, I meant how, because I do one that involves a cartwheel, so I was wondering if this one was different, and if yes: in what way???

ubbidea hey, since so many people want to make Fire Staffs in holland now, how about we order some keflar wick here from HoP together?

10 cm wick costs about 200 euro for 30 meters. add some 40 euro tax (or not, if we're lucky) and we are still paying only 8 euro a meter instead of 16...
everybody uses about 1 meter per staff, so that would cost you 32 a staff... with 8 staffs to make we would actually start making a "profit"...

and while we're at it, order some more stuff in one go (fire blankets, Poi, ???)

now who's in it for 30 euro each? it will get you 3,75 meter of 10cm wick.
and what else do we order?

meditate eRic.

Nope. no cartwheels involved, but that would really finish it off tongue... But I must confess, I can pull it off only one in a few times frown, but look for inspiration the Soy on Everything part II pick up start at 1.35



And for the Kevlar; Subtotal 201.4, 51,24 shipping, and maybe additional tax... OW F*CK... One menu further I see that you can only pick a Courrier with online tracking: 79.65 instead of 50...

Anyhow, I have a 15% discount number, valid within 14 days from today, or else if I order it I get 15% discount as well... which makes the total, including expensive shipping 250,53 [and maybe import tax frown Had that once, that was quite much actually...]

so, 10 euro's a meter? still better than the shops though... I would be in for 2 or 4 meters *thinking about doubles now ubbangel *



Btw, have you seen them? Triple Monkey Head Poi rolleyes

which S, I see no S ubbangel ?!?!

tongue



And not good for throws, wraps or carryovers either... iso's could be interesting... The price tag is less interesting though...



pOp, I don't know how advanced your metalworking skills are, but would there be any possibility to create a detachable staff, that would fit the clubswing - handles from the shop???

wooden balls Should be easyest to find, but any type of ball, (metal, plastic) that's firm enough should do... But I've been searching for wooden balls once in 3 different hardware stores -> Nothing frown...
