Firetoys Big Burner Fire Staffs are great all-rounders and are suitable for beginners and advanced spinners.
The Big Burner Fire Staffs are especially suited to single staff spinning. They can be used as double staffs but many people find them too long to be used as doubles. They are good for learning contact moves due to their length and the large amounts of wick adding weight, and therefore momentum, to the ends. However they are still a bit light for to be a really good contact fire staff. If your interests lie in contact staff then you're much better off with one of our Fiber 3 Contact Fire Staffs - find them here - and learning contact staff basics with this book.
All Firetoys aluminum staffs are light weight, durable and hard wearing. The wicks are extremely robust and should last many hundreds of burns if maintained correctly. On our Big Burner Fire Staffs we use 75cm of 100mm wide, high-grade para-aramid wick - much more than most other staffs out there. This large amount of wick provides a big size flame which will burn for five to nine minutes depending on conditions. The grip on these staffs is top quality, extra-long, padded and insulated. Both the padded grip and the wicks can be replaced easily if required.
For the shaft of the fire staff we use top quality, ¾" (1.9cm) diameter aluminum, which is both strong and light. The end plugs are made from dense fiberglass which won't burn or deteriorate with heat, unlike wood which is used in most other, non-Firetoys, fire staffs. This greatly extends the lifespan of our staffs.
The bolts we use to attach the wick to the shaft go right through the entire burner and screw into each other ensuring the wicks are better secured and easier to replace. These bolts further extend the life of our staffs as they don't wear away the end plugs when your staff is re-wicked. The extra weight of the fiberglass also adds weight to the extremities making this fire-staff spin with more momentum.
