short tubes: 1F to 5F

Get different length tubes to convert your flowtoys into other flowpoi, staffs, martial flow tools and other props.

The lengths of the tubes are determined by the number of flowlights, capsule lights and/or connectors they hold, accounting for the bumpers in the caps where applicable.

  • F = flowlight, e.g. a 2F tube holds 2 flowlights.
    'F' does not stand for 'feet!'
  • C = capsule light, e.g. a 2C tube holds 2 capsules
  • You need 0.5F space for half a staff connector (staff connectors take up the same amount of space as a flowlight)
  • X = space for a compression connector - if you're buying a tube for a composite staff end, you'll want a 'CX' or 'FX' tube.

Sold individually WITHOUT caps, connectors or lights.

Have a question? Check out our guide to choosing a flowtoy.

Made of polycarbonate, the strongest clear plastic available, the tubes are custom extruded to very tight tolerances so that flowlights and all caps and connectors fit into them. Holes at both ends enable all flowtoys caps and connectors to click into the tubes.

All flowtoys tubes are 1" outer diameter and 7/8" inner diameter. We currently offer the following tube lengths. There are descriptions of what each tube length can fit and what flowtoys they are typically used in:
