Learn the basics of contact staff with First Contact: Beginner's Contact Staff!

This 88 page book is aimed at absolute beginners but will also be helpful for more experienced contact staff spinners to gain a deeper understanding of these fundamental moves.

The tutorials break down each move into simple step-by-step instructions accompanied by clear illustrations.

Starting with the basics like Hand Wraps, the tricks covered in this book get steadily more challenging and complex. Includes the Neck Wrap, Foot Stalls, the Conveyor Belt, the Halo, and the Steve.

There is also information on learning practices, the right length and weight of contact staff, fire safety and more.

The book is wire bound to allow it to lie flat in front of you while you practice the tricks and the print is large enough for it to be read at a distance.

The best contact staff book existing
Great job Chazz!

Reply from Firetoys - Chazz does excellent work, we're big fans here :)

Perfect writing!

The Book!
Written in a way that let the feeling go over the experience of the video. The powerful understanding of any passage make this book the bast compendium ever produced before


Ideal for anyone just getting into contact staff. The level of detail the author has put into the instruction is fantastic and provides a solid foundation that make the more flashy moves a lot easier to pick up.

Excellent, would recommend to any beginner.

I got both this and "The Book of Staff Spinning by Johnathan Reynolds" and I have to say that although there are fewer 'moves' in this one, it is by far the better of the two. The illustrations are clear and simple, and convey plenty of information. The instructions are easy to follow, and there are side notes with things to watch out for, and ways to expand and improve on each trick once you've mastered it.

I can't recommend it highly enough.

Great book

I struggled making the move from spinning to contact and this book gave me the knowledge. Definately the official contact starter book
