The Dragonstaff 10 is the most practical, 2-in-1 staff! Basically it is two props in one: A One-piece Fire Contact Staff (or a Collapsible Contact Staff) with a Dragon Adapter.
Are you a traveler? Then the collapsible version is the most practical tool for you. When both the staff and the adapter are disassembled, all parts fit in a small bag suitable for checked-in luggage. At the same time, you get a professional, strong and solid, perfectly balanced Contact Staff and 10-headed Dragonstaff.
You can select the following parameters:
- 7075 Aluminum is the standard, recommended option. 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. Check out the Fire Contact Staff product testing video 😊
- You can alternatively order the staff with a carbon fiber tube (22 X1.5mm): This will make it super light, but note that used as a 10-headed Dragon the extra weights on the end will make the Dragonstaff 10 a bit wobbly. If you are an expert who is playing super smoothly, this might not be the case, but for most players, the standard Aluminum 7075 is the better option.
- The dragon spikes can be removed with both options. If you choose the collapsible option, it means you can disassemble the main staff as well!
- The collapsible version is 100% straight and doesn’t move or wobble. It is fixed by rubber joints, so the flexible connection takes over the force and will not become loose after a time.
- Recommendation for assembling the collapsible staff: Slide the connector into the tube, hold the two parts of the staff with two hands and turn inwards (clockwise) 2-3 times as long as it is fastened securely – but not overly (it can damage the rubber joint).
If the staff does not seem fixed securely after some turns, disassemble and clean the rubber joint to have a good grippy surface. Then try again.
- Recommendation for disassembling the collapsible staff: Turn outwards (counter-clockwise) 2-3 times until the staff easily glides out. If you make too many turns, it removes the rubber joint from the connector, and it can appear “lost”. In this case, use a long thin stick to remove it and screw it back in its original spot.
- The handling surface is covered with our 3.2 mm thick SuperGrip©. It has a soft spongy underlayer and a sticky, dotted overlayer which does not get slippery when wet. Over the years we have tested many versions and this by far provides the best hold even when your body sweats, and is also suitable for contact staff players with sensitive skin or allergies. The weight middle-point is clearly marked.
- You can chose your favorite grip color.
- The staff is covered with a silicone layer near the fireheads. When using the staff as a contact staff, if you make a mistake, the heated metal could cause serious fire burns – the silicone layer serves to protect you.
- You can choose your favorite color. The black color silicone has the highest heat resistance!
Staff fire head:
- “Staff fire head” refers to the heads at the two ends of the contact staff, these are the large flames on the Dragonstaff 10.
- The Classic fireheads are made from 10 cm wide kevlar wick and you can choose between 3 sizes.
- You can also opt for special fireheads which are knotted from kevlar rope in 3 designs: Isis fireheads made from 6 ropes, Wicker fireheads made from 4 thicker ropes or Monkey Fist fireheads which results in a ball shape. All three knotted designs give a beautiful and large flame, however they are more costly to make and more difficult to replace.
- If for your performance it is important that no excess fuel drops on the ground, we recommend choosing one of these knotted fireheads. On the other hand, for burnoff tricks the Classic fireheads are more suitable.
Recommendations for use
- 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.
