Take your staff practice to the next level with these amazing dragon discs!

The 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, if you are into that sort of thing).

Each dragon disc has cut-outs that hold 3 flowtoys capsule lights. You will need 3 capsule lights per disc for your staff to roll evenly!

The design and shape: The shape of the manta ray emerged as we were exploring the optimal interplay between strength, durability, required mounting points and minimal material weight, while designing with the fewest vector points possible. A few tweaks brought to life this inspiring and graceful animal with its iconic curves, the cephalic fins around its mouth, and the claspers on its tail. The marine theme continued as the shape of the support discs took on the appearance of a whales' tale as they followed the lines of the primary disc, and the outermost support began to look like the metal reinforcement around the keyhole to a futuristic pirate’s treasure chest. We did not begin with the manta-marine theme in mind when we set out to develop the structure. As with many of our designs, we are their conduit for manifestation as we seek to solve mechanical challenges, while honoring the beauty and intelligence of nature. Call it the viral beauty of nature using us as their host ;)

Each dragon disc comes installed and ready to be put on your 1" staff tube. 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.

Disc specs
Weight: 10oz | 283.5g w/ 3 capsule lights per disc
Diameter: 12.2" | 31cm
Material: industrial-grade polyethylene
Color: “natural” (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’s 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:

  • 1 main disc
  • 2 medium support plates
  • 2 small support plates
  • 4 internal silicone washers
  • 12 screws, 12 nuts, 12 washers
  • 10 zip-ties (you need 6 and get 4 extra)
  • 10 capsule o-rings (you need 6 and get 4 extra)

Lights NOT included in this rig!
