Fusion Carbon Fibre Contact Staff w/ Flowtoys LED Glow Ends
This thing is awesome! I've used the Flow toy pois and they are great but the staff although costly is easily just as much fun.
The prop is very good, but it need's few upgrades upon receiving. I recommend to buy one or two pairs of flowmass if your aim is contact. For me best works about 1,5 of flowmass at the end (for my personal pref. I add 50g per end) - also it makes the LED light spread a little more as in the "received" state the amount of light was disapointing - it's not as bright as podpois due to no shell only the Flowends are glowing mostly- flowmass partially fixes it.
Also would be good if the flowmass could be an option to choose in the shop as an add-in.
It's probably the best one Flowlight ended staff at the market - there should be version with the space for two caps at one end for more weight and light, that would make an ultimate led staff, but anyway it's amazing prop, well made.
EDPM grip is best grip I've ever seen!
I recently ordered the contact staff with flowtoys and some pure ends and fire ends. After ordering I realized that the flowtays staff and handle are 17mm and the ends I got were 22 mm so they would not be compatible with the modular ends I purchased. I contacted Threeworlds and they promptly responded with solutions and we were able to get me a staff that works for everything I ordered. This was a huge relief as I was already dropping a good deal of money on my order and living in the U.S. I was having to pay about $50 for shipping so it was awesome to get that handled and only have to pay that shipping once. The staff is amazing too and everything I could have hoped for. 10/10 recommend for anyone
Professional review. 3 months post purchase.
I'm a Fitter and machinist by trade. My career for the last 14 years has been to determine accuracy of mechanical components to 0.01mm.
Upon receiving my my first order, primarily a fusion dragon staff with V3 hubs I immediately knew what I was dealing with.
Neither the staff or hubs are cast. They are machined, to an accuracy my tools cannot even detect (that means that they are more accurate than 0.01mm which is half the with of a human hair).
This translates to PERFECT balance and involves CNC machining which is a computer machining process. You simply cannot replicate it without sophisticated equipment.
The staff has been drop tested consistently from all angles with hubs attached and has proved indestructible under it's intended use with quite some vigorous use.
The V3 hub is an ingenious design. It has no hinge yet locks securely together with a sing cap head bold. This means quick yet reliable change outs.
I immediately purchased all varieties of dragon staff in both carbon fibre and aluminium, with the flowtoys LED and claws and F3 hubs. The quality remains perfect and infallible.
Another not on design is the quick connect on the break down models. When the staff is rotated to lock together it compresses soft washers that expand within the tube and lock against the walls. It leaves seamless joins, quick set up and pack down and maintains the balance.
The light unit in th flowtoys/fusion dragon staff is the same flowtoys v.2 in the poi. They can be connected and this has proved brilliant as a set of poi on a waist band allow quick, one handed changes to the light settings while doing one armed tricks with the dragon staff.
I've found all products to the very best quality
