We recommend getting a discounted capsule 2.0 remote, which is super useful for navigating and performing more complex functions that require a lot of button presses, especially for several props at once! Plus it’s fun to hand the remote to someone else, while you’re spinning, so they can VJ your modes.
You have the option of adding a super nifty retractable reel to your capsule remote. The reel features 22" of steel wire and an activated laser cut wooden super f sticker. The capsule remote without the reel already comes with a flowtoys mini-carabiner, so you can easily attach it to a belt loop or your backpack, but the reel gives you some extra security and freedom - like letting new friends VJ with your remote without worrying about it going home with them by accident ;)

I was a little hesitant when considering purchasing the staff because of the price, but I've owned the staff now for over 5 months. It can certainly take a beating while delivering a dazzling display of patterns woven together by color and bright LEDs. In this review, I'll talk about a few different things that I would want to know before spending $500+ on a light up toy; starting with the "bad":
1) LEDs; 3/5 stars. Don't get it twisted, the light shows and the lights themselves are amazing, but the firmware can be a little frustrating at times. I cannot emphasize this next point enough: buy the capsule remote. The capsule remote allows you to sync with the LEDs on the staff and control them. There are so many different color/pattern combinations and while there are buttons on either end of the staff to cycle through the modes, they're really difficult to press, let alone hold. Assuming you purchase the capsule remote, you have access to a bunch of different modes and lighting effects, but you have to access everything with a single button on the remote. You're given a handout which explains how to cycle through each mode, but it's a bit confusing to understand at first. I don't know how difficult incorporating a two-dimensional remote into these products would be (one button to control patterns/modes and a second to control the brightness/colors), but I hope there is something like that in production in the future.
2) Price; 4/5. It's hard to justify spending over $500 on a staff, but after buying and having it for a while, I feel I can rest easy. The full board vision staff is worth every penny. Quality is remembered long after price is
3) Durability; 5/5 stars. The full board vision staff is tough. I must have dropped it dozens of times on grass, carpet, dirt, hardwood, and even pavement. I understand that if I'm dropping it on concrete more often than not, it will begin to wear down as anything would if you're spinning it really fast. Nothing lasts forever, but the silicone wrapping provides enough shock resistance to keep the lights on and keep the show going.
4) Weight/Feel; 5/5 stars. The staff practically spins itself. I originally thought the staff was too short, but once I became used to spinning, it only feels more and more natural. The weight is just right too. It is a bit heavier than it looks for its size, but I see that as an advantage. More weight = more momentum carried round and around.
All in all, this is a well-made product. It is fun to spin on my own during the day, and I never get tired of seeing peoples faces light up when I bust my staff out after the sun's gone down. It's not perfect, but there is some sweet nectar in knowing most of the problems I have is with the firmware, which is upgrade-able and ever-changing. Plus the lifetime warranty with only some restrictions is pretty sweet. You have my recommendation for the full board vision staff.
