All new capsule 2.0 light features:
Options: Comes in 3 standard lengths. Custom lengths available - please select the custom length option from the staff length dropdown and be sure to specify your desired overall staff length in the text field below (NO refunds on custom lengths). Staff comes standard with elastomer grip and holographic tape with center-point mark.
All components are custom-made to our tight tolerances and specifications, from the carbon fiber shaft to silicone flowcaps, to the polycarbonate tubing.The screw connectors create a firm connection between the tubes and the shaft. The soft, versatile and beautiful flowcap secures your lights with a snap. Modular parts fit together for a strong and rigid, yet lightweight staff that breaks down for travel (you can unscrew the connectors to get a minimum length of the shaft length), and are compatible with Flowtoys Modular System parts. Lifetime warranty.

Shaft: Iso batons have 12mm OD/10mm ID carbon fiber shaft - 14mm diameter with grip.
Tubes: 1CX tubes house 1 capsule light on each end, 2 in total.
You cannot fit a flowlight in a 1CX tube. If you need your staff to be flowlight-compatible, we make tubes that will fit a single flowlight, but they will leave a gap when you have capsules in your staff. You can order a flowlight-sized baton with flowlights and order capsules separately.

These are incredible.
I ordered a couple pairs with a custom length much shorter than the standard lengths (20.5") and they've been everything I could have hoped for. Extremely well built with fantastic light modes.
These are very well weighted towards the end, such is what I was looking fur. Additionally, as the iso-baton work I do is focused in the relationship of the ends to reach other, having an led version of this property isn't just fun it's actually made made learning easier as the lights make it easier to focus on the ends.
Having the capsule 2.0 lights is also fantastic for sharing a pile of led props at a festival/party, if you sync them all there's no need to stress about keeping track of them as your props are easy to spot.
I first purchased double staffs from Flowtoys in 2009, and despite a few modifications, I didn't like them as much as I was hoping. I sold them a year later.
Now, in 2018, I purchased a set of composite staffs with the modular components (including capsule lights) and I am absolutely thrilled. These staffs feel great and flow so well. They are well balanced, have flow well. I opted to add a little flowmass which improved the momentum even more (which was good to begin with) . I was nervous about the shaft being to thin as I have larger hands, but was pleasantly suprised to find that I actually now prefer the thinner staff size. I'm a huge fan of the modular system and thorougly impressed by the creativty and foresight put into the product design. Every compoment has been thought through to work well with other components. It is really an impressive product suite that was clearly built from the perspective of a prop artist. If you're in market for lighted props, I highly recommend these. Well done, Flowtoys!
Advantages: The capsule lights are so easy to charge and hold their charge for a long time. I spin about 1 hour a night, and charge about 1 a week. Having different colored lights on each staff end that are clearly easy to distinguish greatly speeds up learning of difficult tricks and working through complicated tech moves. This has been a huge benefit to my learning and improvement of the craft; one that I had not anticipated.
Disadvantages: Staying up later than bedtime night after night, spinning.
