The Ninja Pyrate Acro Staff is made with your choice of flexible 7/8" diameter fiberglass rod or lighter weight but rigid 7/8" diameter carbon fiber tubing. It features sports grip in the center, reinforced and textured hand grips, 2.75" diameter foot steps, and extremely durable solid rubber ball ends (no more constant replacing of cane tips needed!). The fiberglass version weighs approximately 3.5 pounds and the carbon fiber version weighs approximately 2.5 pounds.
Unsure whether you should order heavier flexible fiberglass or lighter rigid carbon fiber? If you want to also spin it as a contact staff, Skiffle recommends carbon fiber - the fiberglass flex is nice but the added weight can limit your contact movements.
This staff is recommended for anyone under 200 pounds. If you weigh more than 200 pounds you can still safely cartwheel etc, but acro moves that greatly flex the center of the staff can risk damage (and void warranty).
Notes: Shorter staffs are stronger than longer staffs and chance of damage increases with length. Smaller foot steps and multiple foot step configurations available. While very durable, all staffs can become damaged from misuse. By purchasing any items from Ninja Pyrate you are agreeing to use them safely and at your own risk.
