  • Staff Grip

We provide three grip options to help match your specific style and needs:

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 (2mm thick), 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.

Om Grip is a yoga mat based grip with adhesive-backing. It has more give then the other two options and is slightly less grippy than EPDM. This is especially good for dragon staff work, where you don't want the hair on your arms pulled out and the extra cushion will allow for longer practice times. It also comes in colors and does not leave any residue on your arms after use (like EPDM does). It is not as grippy as EPDM, so for those artist looking for the most tacky contact staff grip, EPDM is probably a better option.

How much do I need?

Classic Grip comes in individually-wrapped pieces. Two grips are required for a Contact Staff or a pair of Double Staves. Dragon and Helio Staves require three grips. Contact swords use one grip.

EPDM Grip comes in three pre-cut lengths: 40" lengths (for a Contact Sword or a single Double Staff), 90" lengths (for a Contact Staff or a pair of Double Staves), and 120" lengths (for Dragon and Helio Staves). You can also purchase lengths by the foot.

Om Grip comes in either 1.5 and 2 inch strips. The 1.5 width will cover about 36 inches of a 3/4 inch staff. The 2 inch will cover 40 inches of a 7/8" staff. We recommend the 1.5 for contact staves and 2" for dragon staves.
