I was so excited to receive this staff, the shipping delays were mild torture but it was so worth the wait!
It's obvious that a lot of care went into the construction of the staff itself, as a contact staff it has a nice weight and balance - the dragon hubs add a good bit of weight to each end once put on, but it's perfectly balanced and lends well to all types of body rolls. As a full dragon staff it has a substantial weight to it, but it's not too heavy - it may be a problem for more petite spinners, I ordered a 1700mm but I imagine a shorter staff would be a bit lighter (there's also a carbon fiber model that I've tried out before from a friend and it's way lighter to throw a out, so if you're worried about how heavy it is, check that one out).
The silicone grip is nice and tacky, but it doesn't pull the hairs on my arms which is good - it does hurt if you get it caught up in your hair, like all other grips, so if you have longer hair I'd suggest maybe wearing some sort of Buff or something like that, or tight plaits or whatever, but again that applies to literally every other staff that I've played with so!
I've yet to light it up, it's definitely better to practice and be completely confident with the prop before lighting up - there's loads of tutorials available so that shouldn't be a problem!
So all in all, fantastic construction, lovely weight and balance, tacky grip and loooovely product! Fantastic value for money, I'd recommend this to anyone who's interested in getting a beginner dragon staff but wants the option of the contact staff as well! Also the more wicks the better ey?!
Couldn't be happier with this staff, thanks so much Threeworlds, you guys are legends!
I'm just beginning in "dragon staffing" and I'm very very satisfied with that one, the silicone gives a very nice grip.
Cheers guys :D
I love it! This is my first dragon staff. I really like it! It's a bit heavy for me but im excited to play with it and gain some muscle to make it easier :)
Got it real fast and hassle free. Loving the set up , weight grip and everything about it! Thank you!
The dragon staff is beautifully made, feels great in hand and on the body. Great mix of stiffness and give. Love the EPDM grip. A friend had the silicon and I found it a bit too slippery after getting sweaty but the EPDM is fantastic. Feels great and I haven't experienced lots of black marks like I'd read about.
Using the staff as a contact staff also works great, something I was worried about. Again it feels like a good mix of stiff and bounce.
Built really solidly, and connection mechanism works great as to the wick connections.
Would highly recommend, super happy!
