All new capsule 2.0 light features:
The staff: The staff-base is the signature flowtoys composite contact staff. Made with carbon fiber, elastomer super-grip, 3D-printed compression-connectors, polycarbonate tubes and silicone flowcaps, the composite contact staff is a high-tech piece of equipment that is ultra-strong and rigid, yet thin and lightweight, bringing you hours of joyful flow.
Staff shaft length: We offer a wide range of shaft 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). Please be aware that staffs with longer shaft lengths (130cm and up) are more flexible.
The lights: Each capsule light 2.0 features wireless control, kinetic awareness, and an intuitive 1-button interface with many modes ranging from awesome trails to gorgeous mood lighting. Each mode is adjustable either in color, speed, brightness or pattern. Micro-USB charge-port, 6-70+hr runtime, battery life indicator and a variety of charging options make it a breeze to keep glowing during festivals and travel.
Shaft color style:
Dragon discs: Designed by Flowtoys, these dragon discs are CNC-cut from polyethylene, and hand-assembled and finished to bring you a unique, highly durable and elegant staff accessory that feels amazing (and wows audiences).
Each dragon disc has cut-outs that hold 3x flowtoys capsule lights. You will need 3x capsule lights per disc for your staff to roll evenly!

The dragon disc staff comes with:
The head-weight is 380g including the disc. This is much lighter than a typical dragon staff, but the narrow 17mm shaft diameter (with grip) changes the rolling dynamic drastically, requiring almost 2x the number of rotations to roll down your arm, for a lighter staff that performs like a much heavier one, and it feels just amazing.
Our heaviest contact staff head is 230g (tube, 2x capsules, 2x mass and pod shell cap) and the extra weight of the disc does introduce more bounce/flex when the staff is impacted during play, so we don't recommend additional mass for the dragon disc staff. However if you are using your staff as a contact staff without the disc as well, you can give your flowmass a little extra lube to help with getting it on/off your tubing.
Each dragon disc comes assembled and ready to be installed on your 1" staff tubes. Simply push hard to get it on/off and the inner silicone washers will maintain a snug and secure fit, which can also be tightened if necessary.
Staff length: The first dragon staffs were fire dragons. Ideal dragon staff lengths have to date been restricted by requiring a safe distance between the spinner and multiple flaming wicks. Most fire dragon staffers want staffs at least as long or longer than their height. With the LED dragon disc, we recommend a staff length that is about the height of the bridge of your nose to your forehead. Longer works as well. This is a new prop and the possibilities are wide open for different styles and techniques to emerge.
Weight: 10oz | 283.5g w/ 3 capsule lights per disc
Diameter: 12.2" | 31cm
Material: industrial-grade polyethylene
Color: slightly translucent-white
Strength: Strong yet soft. The same material used in many bottles, bins, and take-out containers for soup. It flexes and deforms easily, which handle impacts and bends very well. However it scratches easily, the edges may become rough overtime but can be easily sanded/smoothed. Any warping/deformation can be easily bent back into place.
NOTE: This industrial-grade material does not come with a protective film like many end-use sheets like plexiglass etc. It comes to us with scratches on its surface from handling and though they are not noticeable at any distance, they are visible up close in certain lighting conditions. Surface scratches should be expected.
Also the disc parts are CNC routed on a router used heavily for wood and other rougher materials and the edges may show imperfections from this low-precision tool. Most people will probably not notice, and they should not affect performance in any way.
Each disc comprises:
