Solar Flare™ Contact Staff

140.00

Fire Staff made from 3/4" 7075 Aluminum (custom drawn by our friends at Dark Monk). 4 inch wicks. Add weight for Contact.  The ends of the staff wicks are capped with a polymer adhesive, and the wicks are hand sewn so that there is no exposed hardware whatsoever. (There is hardware holding the wicks on, but it is covered so you don't get burned by the hot metal).

The Solar Flare™ staff is weighted for the perfect flow.  

Wicks

The Solar Flare™ flame is big, bright, and awesome.  The wick design is the most durable design we have tested, and has proven to be a favorite among professional performers.  No wick is indestructible.  Proper care will make your wick last longer.  Cover your heads with socks during practice to increase wick life.  See our prop maintenance page for more info.

Length

Suggested length is from the ground to your mid-chin. Use a tape measure and select your length before checkout.

Color

This is the color of the trim tape on the ends of your staff.  When you click add to cart you will be asked to specify a color.  Your choices are: Red, Yellow, Orange, Blue, or Purple. You may ask for more than one color if you like.

RE-Wicking

While this staff uses our trademarked SOLAR FLARE wick, a "rolled wick" or "barrel wick" is the common alternative used by most vendors.  The common "rolled wick" design costs less, but also begins to degrade faster.  As the wick degrades the edges of the wick begin unraveling and need to be trimmed frequently.  The plus side is that with proper trimming and gluing you can postpone replacing the wicks. 
Our Solar Flare™ wick does not unravel like this over time, but once a stitch goes, the wick will soon need replacing.  

We like to think of staff wicks like batteries.  Cheaper "barrel" wicks are like Alkaline batteries:  They slowly lose their charge over time.  Our Solar Flare™ wick is like a Lithium Ion battery: It will work just as well as the day you bought it for a long time, and then after a while lose it's charge quickly and need replacing. 

Replacement wick job is $60.  Click here for our STAFF RE-WICKING page.
