Fire Staff - Cylindrical Wicks


Our fire staves are all custom made to suit you and your unique playing style. We also make practice staves which can replicate your fire staff’s exact specifications.

Staff cases are sold separately and are made to fit your staff’s length.

In the options below, choose your number of wicks placed on each end of the staff (Single, Double or Triple) and your preferred grip width.


Each wick is made from 7.5cm wide aramid tape which is rolled around the ends of the staff. Double or triple wicks can be placed together (to create a single, wide flame) or spaced out (to create multiple trails of fire).

  •  19mm x 1.6mm aluminium tubing
  • 100m of wick = 6cm wide roll
  • 75cm of wick = 5cm wide roll
  • 50cm of wick = 4cm wide roll
  • Single Wicks: 1 x 6cm wicks on each end
  • Double Wicks: 2 x 5cm wicks on each end (15cm together or 20cm spaced)
  • Triple Wicks: 3 x 4cm wicks on each end (23cm together or 30cm spaced)


Please consider the total length of your staff when choosing your number of wicks on each end, their spacing and your grip width. Custom specifications are also available on request – just ask!

Each fire staff comes with drip catchers placed on each end between the grip and the wick(s) (space permitting) which helps absorb excess fuel before it reaches your grip.

We use black tennis overgrip which is acknowledged internationally as the best grip for staves and contact staves.

It is not recommended to store a freshly used staff in its case for too long. The fuel fumes may get absorbed by the grip which will make it slippery and stretchy. If this does happen, leaving your staff out of its case for some time will dry out the grip. To avoid this, leave the staff out overnight after using it in order for the fuel to evaporate properly.

We recommend that you only use your fire staff when you are on fire and not to practice with. Rather use a practice staff to practice and make mistakes with OR cover your fire wicks with a few layers of old socks. This will help to extend the life of your staff’s wicks and keep your practice sessions clean and fuel-free.

We use black tennis overgrip which is acknowledged internationally as the best grip for staves and contact staves.

Contact Staff Options (+R0.00)

Many contact staffers prefer a heavier staff which we achieve by adding a solid piece of wood to the inside the aluminium tubing. A thicker grip area (increased from 19m to 25mm) is also often preferred as it is said to reduce the ‘roll’.

Staff Case (+R0.00)

This neat, black tube with an elasticised lid is great for transporting what is usually a very messy and smelly staff.
