Fire Flower Stick
The Fire Flower Stick is an excellent beginner fire prop, as your hands have more distance prop the Kevlar wicks than many other props! That being said, this prop has had years of development and is perfectly crafted for even the most experienced of flower stick spinners!
The core is made from a “Space Tech” 7075 Aluminum Alloy, which has the same tensile strength as steel, but is light and flexible like aluminum. The surface of the Fire Flower Stick and the flowers are made of heatproof silicone. It is highly heat resistant, but not to a continuous flame. Flowers are weighted for optimal momentum when spinning.
The basic handstick has aluminum rod base and a silicone cover. It is strong and reliable. But the specialty fire handstick is an incredible unique addition. While it makes playing somewhat more challenging, it gives a spectacular stage presence by bringing the previously invisible on stage to be included in your spin style.
