String length is measured from the center of the wand to the end of the string - so the actual length of raw material is twice as long. If you are interested in both long- and short string wand, we recommend getting an extra string pack, removing the finger loop, and using a half hitch to add a long loop of string to convert your short string wand to a long string wand. To convert back to short string, you can remove the long string loop and re-install the swivelled finger loop.
We use braided teflon-coated nylon ice fishing line that is a lot more durable. Short-string flow-wands come with a swivelled finger loop - a 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!

Just received my first flow-wand, and I am loving it! The only “issue” I’m having at this point is that I feel as though the string is a little bit short, especially for someone just learning. With the wand just sitting freely, there’s only about a 1/2” of space between the top of the wand and my palm, so I’ve noticed that the top of the wand ends up hitting my hand, or catches the swivel on the finger loop sometimes. But, definitely loving the wand, and love the glow it gives off in the dark. Will definitely buy another wand, and will likely just order some string to customize the length myself. Thanks for an awesome product!
This is the second short string wand I've ordered from Flowtoys, and both of them have been absolutely beautiful! I was a bit nervous about whether or not this wand would actually glow well, but sure enough it did.In the daylight, and from a distance, it looks more white than the original colored wand.Up close the pattern reminds me of foil confetti. Both orders I've placed through Flowtoys have been at my door within 4 days of purchasing. The wands arrived in perfect condition and were nicely balanced. I couldn't be happier with the customer service and products of this company! Beautiful and flawless color choices; durable string; well balanced; fast shipping; beginner friendly
