Fusion Modular System
Fusion Modular System
Compact for Travel
Like all Fusion Staffs, they setup in seconds by simply twisting the handle. The key to the system is the highly engineered patented locking mechanism that's simple to use and provides superior strength with no wobble or rattle – That's super important for a balanced flow.
The kit is super compact – packing down to about one-third its size when disassembled. With the solidly machined connector, it has no moving parts and collapses down instantly.
The Fusion system is totally modular and has been designed to fit any 22mm tubing, which means you can swap the ends to glow, fire, contact, or dragon ends.

Grip Selection Guide
Grip Selection Guide
We offer three types of grip for our spinning and Fusion gear: EPDM, F-Grip and Silicone. Each has their own unique properties; read on to find out which is best suited to you.
Silicone is an environmentally sound, clean product. It's washable and very durable. It's the longest lasting grip and provides excellent grip when dry. It does suffer when wet whether that be from humidity or sweat which is it's only real downfall.
+ Extremely long-lasting – you wont have to replace it often
+ Excellent grip in dry conditions
+ Fully washable to keep it looking and feeling new
+ Transparent so you can see markers underneath for more precise spinning
- Doesn't handle wet conditions/sweat well. You may have to wipe it down with a dry cloth occasionally during use.
EPDM is simply a black foam strip. The foam is soft, grippy and stays grippy in most situations – even when wet. It does leave some black residue on skin after use as the foam is uncoated to maximise grip and it will need to be replaced after a while once it wears out.
+ Great level of grip
+ Grippy in wet or dry conditions
+ User replaceable at home
- Wears out – you will have to replace this grip after a while
- Leaves black residue on skin
F-Grip is our newest grip. The F stands for Fusion as it is our most well-rounded grip yet. It is made of natural rubber which means it stays grippy wet or dry and is durable as well.
+ Great level of grip
+ Grippy in wet or dry conditions
- Some may find it too grippy and a bit rough on skin
**This grip is not listed as an option for all products. For full staffs, add product 'F-Grip Upgrade' to cart with your staff. For using this grip for any other props and parts please reach out to us to find out more at firstname.lastname@example.org
Length Selection Guide
Length Selection Guide
Please keep in mind the hubs will need to sit approx. 5cm underneath the wick to make the dragon staff. This is approx. 15cm in from the ends of the sushi roll staff and 20cm for the isis weave. The length that you need for a contact-dragon staff will likely be longer than what you need for a regular contact staff.
Select Your Hubs
One thing you don't want is rattles. The dragon spokes are securely fitted with set screws to lock them in tight. This also keeps the spokes simple. That means it will fit any 8mm rod. Make your own or buy online from LED to practice spokes. They all fit!
V3 Hub - Three or Four Spokes
Swap and change according to your needs. If you need more FIRE or less weight, you can choose. All from one hub!
Fits a number of tube sizes with push in shims. If your preferences change, your hub can too. Currently available for
22mm (7/8inch) - included (no shims required)
19mm (3/4 inch) - available on request
Hubs Off and On in Seconds
No more taking out the wicks to remove the hub. You can now easily remove the hub with one bolt. 3 or 4 turns and it's off!
Select Your Fire Spokes
Here are some of our best tips to get the most out of your fire props as well as how to light up with the safety of yourself and others in mind.
PREPARING YOUR NEW WICKS
It is important to properly prepare the wick before every burn to ensure you are both lighting up safely as well as prolonging the life of the wick as much as possible.
• Pour your fuel in a safe fuel container that will allow you to immerse your wick completely in the fuel.
• Soak the wick in the fuel until it is completely soaked through, approx. 10 mins.
• All successive burns only require a short dip in the fuel before burning. Just enough to get the wick wet.
• Shake out or spin off excess fuel from the wick after dipping and before lighting.
• ALWAYS IGNITE AWAY FROM FUEL CONTAINERS!
• It's a good idea to put the flame out before it naturally runs out as this makes sure only the fuel is burnt and stops the wick itself from burning.
MAINTENANCE & CARE
Following proper maintenance care will prolong the life of your fire toys to get as many burns as possible out of them.
• Never leave the wick smouldering – once the flame has burnt out, completely put out with a damp 100% cotton towel.
• Check your equipment before each use for any damage, to ensure it is safe to use and spin.
• Check for loose screws and tighten if any are loose.
• Replace any broken or damaged parts immediately.
• Protect the wicks when not in use with wick covers (socks work well for this).
• If the wick is frayed, trim before lighting up again.
• To prolong the life of your wicks avoid dropping or hitting the Kevlar wicks onto concrete or hard and abrasive surfaces or objects.
• Treat your items with care and use as intended.
As much as spinning with fire is heaps of fun, it's just as important to do it safely. These tips and procedures should always be followed, no matter how many times you've lit up before.
• We highly recommend our FIRELIGHT FUEL; Itʼs a clean burning, low odour fuel.
• Your fuel container should have a secure lid that will not spill if it is knocked over. Always keep your fuel container stored far away from any flames and away from any fire spinning.
• Your fuel container should be labelled that it contains flammable and dangerous goods, including the name of the fuel.
• Kerosene/Citronella are also options. Each fuel has different properties such as volatility, burning temperature and flashpoint. You can find out these specifications in the chemical's MSDS.
• Store fuel away from children and away from where you are spinning and away from where any fire will be.
FIRE SAFETY EQUIPMENT
• Always have a fire extinguisher and/or a damp 100% cotton towel on hand.
• Fire safety equipment should be kept in close proximity so that easily accessible if needed.
• Your fire safety assistant should be trained how to use these items safely and be in charge of where they are located.
WHAT TO WEAR
• Never wear loose or highly flammable synthetic clothing (natural, tight fitting fabrics are best).
• No dangly items worn.
• Keep long hair tied back.
• Lightly wet your hair if possible before spinning.
• Avoid the use of hairsprays, gels, and other products.
• Never spin alone. You should have someone else with you that is also comfortable around fire and knows first aid for burns. This person should also be watching your surroundings and if in public, act as the 'crowd control' and make sure your spinning area is big enough.
• Adult supervision and consent is required for persons under 18 years old.
• Fire spin outdoors only.
• Spin on flat ground that is dry and free of any slip hazards.
• Do not spin in dry bushland or forests as this can cause bush/forest fires.
• Spin away from any obstacles (around and overhead) and be observant to who and what is around you.
• Be responsible for your own and otherʼs personal safety.
• Please respect any local and/or state fire bans and restrictions.
• Obtain any permits if required to spin in public places, varies from county to country.
• Be aware of the props that you are spinning with and its intended use and its limitations
• Remember that Carbon Fibre is heat proof, but not flame proof. Precautions should be taken with this in mind such as keeping the prop moving to control the flame and taking wind direction into consideration to keep the flame away from you and the Carbon Fibre.
• Remember that while Aluminium is flame and heat proof, your hands are not! Aluminium gets very hot where it is close to the flame so you should be careful to only touch the gripped part of the product while spinning to avoid burns.
• Products should only be used for its intended use and misuse of products can result in injuries and damage to your toy.
CONTROL THE FLAME
• Know the nature of fire. Fire will always burn from the bottom up, so when holding fire stationary be intentional with how you are holding it. For example, hold hoops horizontally so the flame does not touch the tubing. Keep poi gently swaying to keep the heat away from your hands. Hold fans upward away from the body or horizontally away from the body.
• Once lit always keep the flame moving, even if slightly, to help control the flame and the heat. Avoid remaining motionless and start spinning and moving the prop as soon as safely possible.
• Be aware of the direction of the wind and how it affects the flame. Usually you would want the wind at your back so that it blows the flame away from your body and not toward you.
• Never light up until you are comfortable, practiced and confident with the prop without fire.
• Take it easy for your first light-up, there's no rush to spin with fire.
• Do not learn or practise new tricks when lit-up.
In the case of an accident or burn, it's important to know the steps to take before it happens.
WHAT TO DO IF CLOTHING CATCHES FIRE
Danger - Response - Send for help - Airway - Breathing - CPR - Defibrillation
Remember STOP, DROP & ROLL
Stop the person from moving around.
Drop the person to the ground and cover or wrap them in a fire blanket, 100% cotton wet towel or similar, if available.
Roll the person along the ground until the flames are extinguished.
Extinguish any burning props and ensure the area is safe.
Manage the burn.
FOR ALL BURNS
If the burn is severe or if it involves the airway, call triple zero (000) for an ambulance.
As soon as possible, hold the burnt area under cool running water for 20 minutes.
Remove any clothing and jewellery from the burnt area, unless they are stuck to the burn.
Cover the burn with a light, loose nonstick dressing, preferably clean, dry, non-fluffy material (eg plastic cling film).
Continue to check the patient for shock, and treat if necessary.
Seek medical advice if the burn is larger than a 20 cent piece, or deep.

I've made my own tools, tools for my Troupe, as well as sold fire & flow tools for 10+ years and this is the first tool I have ever purchased from someone else... Very happy with it!
This staff is amazing!! I love it so much <3 The only thing I recommend is not getting a fusion as a beginner as it makes it just that little bit heavier. However, you can buy ends to attach the dragon spokes to.
I love this product. This feels like something that can last me years. The EPDM grip is fantastic, but after about a month it's definitely wearing off.
I discovered my collapsable fusion dragon staff had a wobble to it (it was bent). I was told it wasn’t covered under warranty so I purchased a new middle section. I received the new middle section, but there is still a bad wobble. I have now spent over $400 on a product that doesn't work. The seller is not responding even after I purchased a second item from them to fix the problem. I thought this company was so great too until now. So unfortunate. $400 wasted. Hopefully they get back to me so I can change this review.
Hi Joe, As mentioned in email we can't cover physical damage under warranty. If the staff arrived damaged we would cover it. Please get back to us via email and we can see what we can do to reduce the cost for the replacement. Thanks
I bought this contact dragon staff after being able to play with the exact one my friend had and, she’s amazing... like the grip, the weight, everything about her is so perfect, I’m a beginner and I know she’s gana teach me good :) I love you svetlana the dragon
