* 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.Safety
Most severe equipment burns come from searing-hot exposed metal, not from the wicks. To minimize exposed metal, the exposed aluminum between the grip and the wicking is covered with a layer of silicone wrapping, allowing you to safely touch the metal within inches of the burning wicks.Grip
Nimbus Grip is a silicone foam based grip and is the latest in staff grip technology. It combines the best features of EPDM foam (great in moist or dusty conditions and slightly squishy for enhanced griping) with the additional benefits of being silicone based (much higher durability, two color options, natural heat resistance). The white option will get dirty over time and you will never get it perfectly white again. However, if you toss your staff in the air at night, you will be able to see it vs a black grip. Compared to EPDM, this grip will not rub off on you and is close but not quite as good in wet conditions. Classic grip is thinner but losses its grippiness much faster. Om grip is thicker and not as grippy.
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 Nimbus grip. Om grip 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 comes in four colors options and doesn't leave residue on your arms after use (like EPDM does). It is not as grippy as Nimbus grip, so for those artist looking for the most tacky staff grip, Nimbus or EPDM is probably a better option.
