The Thai Staff is the epitome of “More Fire”! The Thai Staff is a full length staff but with massive wicks that produce an enormous amount of fire!
The Thai Staff is made from aluminum alloy tubing. It resists the heat of the fire wonderfully and makes a very lightweight prop, however it’s downside is it’s somewhat fragile so it is important to take care during transport (do not step on your Thai Staff)! Due to It’s fragile nature and the size of the flame, we encourage this staff only to the more experienced staff spinner!
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. SuperGrip© is also suitable for contact staff spinners with sensitive skin or allergies.
Heat-resistant silicone discs protectors protect your hands from the huge flames as long as you keep it spinning. But it is important you do not perform static, vertical positions, especially at the beginning of your show when the flames are still too large and hot!
