Kevlar Dragon Staff Pro
The 10 Head Kevlar Dragon Staff Pro is the ultimate 2-in-1 staff! A one piece fire contact staff easily converted into a 10 Head Dragon! This staff is built at a standard length of 65″, well suited to 95% of staff spinners.
The body of the staff is made from a “Space Tech” Aluminum Alloy 7075, which has the same strength as steel, but is light and flexible like aluminum, so it never breaks or bends. The handling surface is covered with our 3.2 mm thick SuperGrip©. It has a soft, spongy under-layer and a sticky, dotted over-layer which does not get slippery when wet. Over the years we have tested many grip variations and this by far provides the best hold even when your body sweats, and is also suitable for contact staff spinners with sensitive skin or allergies.
Optional flowers slow down the staffs rolling movement. The rubber of the flowers give additional weight toward your staffs spin. Flowers are easily removable.
The weight middle-point of the staff is clearly marked. The staff is covered with a silicone layer near the fire heads. Silicone is highly heat resistant to protect from accidental burns! Enjoy a perfectly balanced weight & roll speed with the Kevlar Dragon Staff Pro!

- Do not fasten the fixing screws in the Adapter Cuff too tight, it is sufficient to tighten it enough so that the Adapter Cuff (the cross) does not turn when you roll your staff. If you fix your screws too tight, you risk damaging the silicone on your staff or causing damage if your staff falls.
- Before going on stage, check if the spikes are attached securely. For practice sessions you can apply the spikes by hand, but for fire spinning we recommend checking / tightening them a bit to avoid losing them at high rotation speeds.
- Do not stop rolling your dragon for more than a moment. When your dragon is not in motion, some of the flames will surely touch the silicone and can damage it – especially if you have large spike heads.
- When you dip your dragon, take care to not dip the silicone parts – this can damage the silicone.
- We recommend you dip only ¾ parts of your wicks. The excess fuel will soak the remaining parts. This way you don’t waste fuel and prevent fuel drops.
