Guardian Blue is more than a color; it is my life

I'm working with some 29-30 inch blades now, heavy grade.  I'm liking the extra weight for using a staff actually.

She would have lost a few body parts doing that LOL. You should buy her a couple US sabers to spin with Smiley

Michelle actually has one... a gift from a few of her students and patreon supporters.  But I'm definitely going to gift her with a saber staff from my collection.  We just have to figure out what best fits her needs. Smiley

This was a joy to watch. Thanks for posting it. If I were even an eighth of as good as her I would be happy. That was a thing of utter beauty, and now I need a staff.

I have created a staff in different lengths/weights from Michelle's instructions and from polycarb. tubes.  Makes a huge difference to practice with these prior to using a saber staff and much more easy on one's bank account.  The Aeon/Dominix v2 stunts as a staff are the best to start with.  I generally use the 16 - 24 inch blades.  Smiley

And I'll take a tenth of being as good as her... but unfortunately I'm not dedicated towards putting in all that practice lol.  Wink

Snoke had me do a late night training session!  Catching a saber in the dark with a bucket in your head isn't as easy as it looks.

M. C Smith actually has a learning group she moderates on Facebook. Nice to see some of her stuff come up in here. Truth be told, I post over there more often than here these days. Partly still stung on rule 3, partly blocked by it. I like to talk about what I am spinning with when I spin and increasingly that is not something I can talk about here. If you want to do the moves she teaches, you can technically do them on an Aeon, Dominix, or other basic, one piece saber. I would not recommend trying to learn them on anything but a V2 though. You will do yourself harm. Enso uses a V2 Dom pair with weights on the emitters for stuff like this. I use ...something I can't talk about. Point is, it should be basic, with nothing to catch on your clothes, and it should be as thin as you can manage. You might also try wrapping it in grip tape. Cobra Seal tape can usually be found in the plumbing isle of most big box stores.

Thanks for the share DC.  Lot's of helpful words of advice.  And as Michelle says and you well know... it's all about practice and that means successfully completing 100 - 1000 repetition/times or more lol.  Wink

Some video from my friend I'm teaching to spin.  I think he's looking good.  Our costumes will be finished soon and we'll have a Qui Gon vs Maul spinoff!

You're right Sam: his spinning does look good^^  Point of fact: you both look awesome (I truly wish I had the skills of either of you  Wink).  Very impressive  Cheesy
