Fibre 3 Contact Fire Staves
Our Fibre 3 Contact Fire Staffs have set the standard in the contact staff world! Equipped with a solid fibreglass core these fire staves are virtually indestructible and will never develop a permanent bend – the bane of any contact spinner. The core also provides a good weight but this does make these staffs tiring to spin normally (i.e. non-contact). The huge wicks and aluminium heat shields focus the weight at the ends adding momentum to the staves which helps you to learn and perform contact tricks.
For those that don’t know, contact staff is the manipulation of a staff without holding on to it. It rolls, wraps and rotates around the shoulder, arms and even legs, feet and head. Famous moves include fishtails, the Matrix and the Steve.
We have a range of Fibre3 lengths from 3ft 3in to 5ft 3in to suit all heights and preferences of contact spinners. The 4ft 7in is the most popular choice of contact staff with the 4ft 3in model being favoured by many double contact staffers and those doing staff-on-staff-contact (SoSC). For information on different types of staff spinning, or twirling, see this article. And have a look at the fire safety article if you’re new to fire spinning.
We also have double wick, or burner, contact staves. These focus yet more weight on the ends of the staff and look great when on fire.
Our monkey fists are some of the best contact fire staffs in our range. The round wicks create large burn offs and the extra weight makes them a dream to spin. The flames also look like comet trails.
