Actually, about the interchangeable Glowstick Staff...

Take the PVC pipe Idea, remove the nuts, and add PVC Female-Female Connectors one side with ribs and one without them.

Use PVC cement to keep them together.

First, size your staff WITH the glowsticks.

If you take your sized glowstick, they should have a size that literally can make it so you Screw it in, and it doesn't come out without screwing it. It works with 6'' glowsticks.

I have had my staff for a very long time with nice use and it is great!

Spray-paint is a fun addition.

yeah... Before I even got there, you guys read my mind....

A tri-staff, while expensive, rigging a tri-staff, and working with it, while still being able to connect all pieces, into one glow staff... This would make it versatile.... and VERY SEXY....

Glowstaffing is pretty cool. And I think could be it's own art. The biggest reason why there is no section is probably because not many people do it.

 

I'm gona give it some thought to what I want to vot, probably yes to a staffing section, but I think a section might be cool couse it is a dance and probably could be considered "Glowsticking" because it invalves 'dancing with glowsticks' =D, where as orbitz, conjuring, juggling, etc dont involve dancing with Glowsticks.

My $0.02.

 

Glow staffing would NOT be its own art. I've seen LED staffs (clear with LEDs running throughout the whole thing), as well as staffs with glowsticks taped/hooked on. However, people have been doing this, and its been growing quickly, so a section on here about it would be great.

 

As far as juggling goes, YES! I love to play with devil sticks, which is a form of juggling. Just think how cool glow devil sticks could be... Fire is cool too, but I'm not good enough for that yet.

Speaking of devil sticks, I just found out today what they were, and it looks VERY intriguing. The physics of it all and how it even moves is pretty cool on it's on. And mind boggling. Then again, I have no idea how to do it in actuality.

You can find glowstaffs at firetoys.co.uk (they light the entire length) for about the same price as a typical contact staff.

Glowsticks, tape, and a pole... Doesn't seem like you would need to waste money on anything pre-made for something that simple to make.

as of this moment, i don't think there is enough differentiation with glowsticks in terms of glowsticking for staffing to have its own category.

another way would be to make a capsule out of clear material.

first you could get a pvc or wooden staff, then something like a clear tube with a door or sumtin but it needs to be able to fit a glowstick in it. i will be adding pictures soon but the idea is very very possible to do.
