Length: 6-light wand: 29.75"
Construction: We start by extensively testing flowlights to be made into wands to ensure they have very good buttons and battery doors that are extra easy to open. The bottom of the flowlights are cut to enlarge and prepare the area for fusion. The lights are then individually held together and heatshrunk, laid in a jig, and carefully injected with epoxy. After the epoxy cures overnight, we pick away the heatshrink and any stray dabs of epoxy, drill, bevel, clean and string the wand.
Wand string and swivel finger loop: For the string, we used to use nylon upholstery thread, but since 2010 have switched to a braided teflon-coated nylon ice fishing line that is a lot more durable.
Short-string flow-wands come with a swivelled finger loop - a unique and key feature for wand usability and performance, as the swivel enables you to move freely without having to account for the string twisting up. For the swivel finger loop, we use a custom made tubular webbing carefully looped through itself and melted in to a custom swivel. Long-string wands do not include a finger loop, as it's not necessary for long string practice.
If your string breaks for any reason, you can replace it easily with extra string from us, or any strong button or upholstery thread or braided fishing line. You can also use invisible thread or fishing line if you wish. We have found that "clear" string often appears more visible as it catches and reflects the light. It's also less comfortable and gets tangled easily, but there might be occasions where it's appropriate. Feel free to experiment!
