Options

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.

Bridge for connecting to the app:

Want to use the flowtoys connect app? You'll need a small hardware bridge to enable your props to talk to your mobile device and vice versa.

We have 2 options for bridges:

  • Pocket bridge comes with its own power bank and can be used when you're out and about.
  • USB bridge is great for home use. Just plug into power via usb.

You can find out more about the app and bridge here.
