day contact saber

day contact saber

Contact moves require a lot of practice and drops, and this unbreakable saber is designed with that in mind! Super-shiny and hella durable for daytime play, practice and performance, the flowtoys day contact saber is built to perfectly match the balance of the vision LED contact saber. Plus it can be easily upgraded with a vision saber blade and capsule for the pommel, and is modular and customizable - you can swap out the blade, pommel and handle between all flowtoys sabers!

Now with 18mm diameter shafts: Day sabers are now built with 18mm carbon fiber shafts. If you have a 15mm saber and want to match or upgrade, please contact us. See options tab for more info.

Available in 4 holographic colors that shimmer in the light.

Created by Sean von Stade, who made the first fire contact swords in recorded history ;) and instigated a new movement in movement, the flowtoys contact saber is designed with a large playable handle area with center mark for contact-staff inspired techniques.

15mm vs 18mm carbon fiber shaft diameters

The advantage of a thinner / smaller diameter shaft is mostly in how it rolls along the body: the smaller diameter must rotate more times to travel the same distance, and it has a higher rolling resistance, which both lead to slower travel, which some people prefer for a slower movement flow.

A larger diameter head and/or flowers will also slow down the travel / roll. We’ve found 15mm to be the thinnest shaft that is still rigid enough to not be too bouncy. Adding flowers greatly reduces bounce by absorbing it.

The advantage of a thicker / larger diameter shaft is mostly that it is stiffer and less bouncy. The larger diameter also travels / rolls along the body faster, which some people prefer for faster movement flow. We’ve found 18mm to be the “point of diminishing returns” when it comes to stiffness. Any thicker doesn’t make much practical improvement to stiffness, and starts to feel bulky and roll too fast.
