What is the difference between a Contact Staff and a Standard Spinning / Twirling Staff?

Contact Staffs are usually a heavier staff, this allows for a lot more momentum with spinning and body rolls the special grip with use on this staff is also perfect for sticking to the body for contact work. A Standard Twirling / Spinning staff is usually a lot lighter then a contact staff and are built for speed with a lighter body to them. Our Home of Poi range are all made with a strong hardened grade aluminium pole with black anodised finish for that sleek look while spinning. Phantom-Lite version are made for the speed spinners, you can even use the same grip for some contact work making this a great all round and beginner staff to use.

Do I get everything I need for a Phantom staff in a set?

When purchasing from our site whatever is shown in the main photo of the staff is what you will be getting, all Phantom staffs sets come with the three or two pieces depending on the staff you are buying and the correct amount and size couplers needed to help join them together. When the staffs are made in our Phantom Staff range they all have the capability to join to other phantom parts or even if you purchase the practice ends you can buy an extra knob to put on the other end to make a nicely weighted twirling baton. Even join your two practice staff ends together to create a long twirling baton or practice staff with no added handle.

What benefits does a padded grip have over Leather or rubber grips?

Manufactured with a soft padded grip style handle making for an extremely comfortable and durable Contact handle design. This material has benefits over rubber or leather (which can become slippery when fuel or moisture transfer to the handle). Foam handles can soak up fuel and become a fire hazard and also deteriorates faster as a result. Some silicone designed handles can also become slippery with fuel and when dry can sometimes grip to much and pinch the skin or catch hairs on the body with certain contact routines making for an uncomfortable spinning experience.

Do you have a practice style staff for indoor or non fire use?

Practice Phantom breakdown staff ends are perfect for for those non fire situations, but still hold a great effect with holographic tape ends you can still use these for practice or performance where the light bounces beautifully off the reflective tape ends. Silicone knobs ends mean that you can use this inside and protect your tiled flooring and toes you can even bounce these on hard surfaces for an extra cool look and trick with minimal noise.

For the ultimate experience we always recommend the Ultimate Phantom Fire Kit, available in both contact and standard styles comes with one handle two practice ends, two fire ends and all in a carry bag to hold and store it in.

Breakdown means you can have easy storage and travel, this also means we are able to have these shipped via standard air mail meaning much cheaper shipping cost all round.

Can I travel overseas with my fire staff?

In most cases if the fire staff has been used a lot of customs agencies over the world would not allow this through due to the fuel residue or soot left on the wicks. You can remove the wicks if you wish or if you have a Phantom staff you can simply leave your used heads at home and buy a replacement pair of just heads for travel. This way you can use them when you reach your destination and never be without your flame. The Phantom practice staff would also be a great option for this as they still carry the same aspects of a normal staff but are easy and safe to travel with.

We also carry the Fusion fire and LED staff range. Compatible with the Fusion LED and Fusion Fire range they can adapt to work together, A kit is available for those spinners wanting LED and fire. These come in a contact version which has silicone ranging from tip to tip of the staff increasing grip for the contact routines. We also have the standard version which the LED works all the same the only difference is a smaller handle grip.

What is the difference between a Fusion Staff and a Fusion Contact Staff?

The only difference between the Contact and Standard Version is the contact version has an extra silicone grip layer that goes all the way from the handle to close to the wick ends making it perfect for contact work. They are also slightly heavier compared to the standard version. With the LED versions the actual LED units themselves are exactly the same.

What can I use to charge my rechargeable batteries for my LED staff?

We sell a USB charger perfect for use on most rechargeable batteries, you can also purchase one locally as in store we also use a Sony and energiser charger which work fine also.

Will the Fusion Staffs fit into a Home of Poi breakdown staff carry bag??

The fusion range will fit into our Home of Poi breakdown staff bags also, perfect for travel and storage.

Does the Phantom staff range work with the Fusion staff range?

The Fusion range will not work with the Phantom range as they are two seperate designs.

Can I use the Phantom Coupler on a Lite and Contact Staff?

Yes the same coupler will work for both the Home of Poi Phantom-Lite and Phantom Contact range the only difference is you would need to purchase the correct rings required for each size staff as the Lite version have a larger ring compared to the Contact which have a smaller ring.

What benefits come from spinning staffs?

Spinning a staff helps with, co-ordination, Stress (its relaxing), It teaches concentration, patience, timing, tracking skills, gross and fine motor skills
As well as the social and creative elements of spinning with your friends.

"Great item. Arrived within days of ordering in the lead up to Christmas 2018. Very impressed with the speed and customer service I have received when ordering from HOP. I received this with 2 other items and all were snugly packaged in bubble wrap and well protected. I would use HOP again to service my requirements should I need anything else"

Fusion Contact Fire Dragon Staff  
     10th January, 2019

Beautiful prop!
"This is everything I could have wanted in a dragon staff!! The weight feels lovely to spin, the grip is the best I have tried and it s really easy to take apart and put back together. It s really sturdy which was a worry with it being a travel staff but haven t had any issues at all. Lit it up for the first time a couple of nights back and I was in love, it spins beautifully and has a good burn time. Can t wait to perform with it. Service fro HoP was excellent as ever."

8 Head Aero Dragon Fire Staff  
     4th January, 2019

Fantastic heavy collapsible dragon staff
"This is a fantastic collapsible staff, it's super easy to travel with. It is worth noting though that this is the heaviest staff I've encountered any spinner using. While this is fantastic news to me since I'd generally prefer all props to be as heavy as possible, it's worth noting that many of the people I've let spin it came away with the conclusion that it is clearly much too heavy for them. If you like heavy props this is absolutely the staff for you. If you'd like a light staff you should look for something else."

3 Piece Fusion  Contact Fire Staff  
     21st November, 2018

A treat!!
"Love it. This collapsible staff is awesome! I have been using it for about a month now. Being new to contact, I'm finding it quite light to handle. The collapsible mechanism doesn't slip or loosen during use. The staff is grippy and also has stayed straight and true. And I look forward to purchasing the interchange LED attachment. Overall a very well made staff!!!"

Contact Claymore Large Fire Sword  
     23rd October, 2018

Contact Claymore
"Was bigger and heavier than I expected which is both a good and a bad thing so be ready for a workout! The center balance point is quite high up on the handle so some contact tricks aren't as easy but it helps with some throws and the impressive flame more than makes up for any downsides!"

First dragon staff
"This is my first dragon staff and it's everything I hoped and more. It's easy to collapse down and put back together, perfect for traveling. The gross and weights are excellent on it and it can break down to a contact staff. It's better than my current contract staff even. Highly recommend."
