The 6.5” spokes are primarily made of 1/4” steel cable. This extremely stiff cable provides a small amount of shock absorption that prevents hard drops from damaging the spines or their connection points to the dragon staff body. Each cable has a threaded rod on one end, enabling easy screwing and unscrewing from the helio staff body. 2" wicks are firmly attached to the other side of each cable, providing a 3:30 minute burn.*
* Burn times are estimated based on recorded burns using pure "white gas" / Coleman's Liquid Camp Fuel. Actual burn times may vary based on individual spinning style, length of fuel soak, and other factors.Exposed Metal
Classic Grip is a traditional adhesive-backed rubber grip. It is tear-resistant, and has a very slight ridge. To maintain its grippy surface, you should periodically clean this grip with soap, water, and the rough side of a sponge.
EPDM Grip is an adhesive-backed alternative to standard grip. It is slightly softer and produces a perfectly smooth grip surface, but is more susceptible to surface damage. However, minor surface damage actually makes it textured, resulting in this surface becoming progressively grippier over time. It also lasts longer than Standard Grip in high-humid environments. It can also leave a light black residue on hands and clothes, though it washes off easily.
