While many spinners practice primarily with their fire staves, the use of a dedicated practice prop offers many advantages.
Our practice contact staff is just under 5 feet in length and has the same diameter, weight distribution, and grip as our fire contact staff. The body of the staff is finished wood and has rubber end caps. These end caps both help protect the staff when dropped and allow it to be used as a walking stick.
This staff has a very natural look and feel that's great for training in the woods or park. The slight reduction in weight from our fire contact staff also means that you can spin for longer with less chance of injury, which can be key when trying to master more complicated contact tricks.
