5. How should I clean my stick??

When the stick gets dirty, it is disadvanaged for not just the beauty, but also the adhesion. In this case You can clean it with water or soapy water, but take care, not using too much water, because it makes not good for the tassel. When ths silicone is wet (after cleaning, rain or dew), it is also very slippery but after getting dry, it will look and behave like new.

6. Why is Xtremestix unique among devilsticks and flowersticks?

XtremestiX is not either an average flowerstick or devilstick, because all the parts of the set was formed to serve the durability, attractivity, and easy gaming for all ages above 6 years. The selected wood materials, the sepcially flexible fiberglass core, and the specially improved silicon serve all this. If You like the game, and would like to learn to spin, You are on the right place.

You find more informations about our sticks, check the History of our flowersticks” or the “Why you should choose XtremestiX?” page.

7. Does it have fishing line, magnet or any kind of „cheats” in the game?

No, it does not have. The only thing which keeps the stick in the air is the grip of the special silicone cover, the vibratory rubber-tassels (weights) at the end of the main stick and the dynamism. These all increase the control of the main stick and the playability.

8. What is the devilstick or the flowerstick? History and its positive effects

History:

The products you find on this site is officially called flowerstick, but most people know it as devilstick, which word comes from a Greek word (diaballo = throw), which was associated to the word: devil. The first find of devilstick was found in a 5.000 years old Egyptian grave. It was made from lemon tree, and on the paintings on the grave’s wall were women, playing with them. A longer kind of devilstick can be also be found in the ancient china. They used itt o their dances, and their soldiers played them for relaxation and filling up with energy before fight. Chinese improved also the tassel on the ends of stick. The North American Indians also knew it and they decorated them first with colourful tassel, made by skin, and probably they were the first, who made it burn. They did not use it for playing, but as an equipment of their magic ritual. Devilstick was first brought to Europe from China in the end of the 18th century and it’s spread was thanks to the 1960’s ages hippie era.

Nowadays flowerstick/ devilstick  is spreading quicker than ever as a skill developing game, relaxation equipment, and sport.

DEVILSTICK vs  FLOWER STICK (and XtremestiX)

There are some difference between flowerstick and devilstick:

1. Devilstick is usually shorter than flower stick

2. Devilstick has no tassels on the end of the main stick.

3. Devilstick (main stick) has thinner middle with the diameter increasing towards the ends

4. Devilstick has no tacky wrapping (just bare shaft)

XtremestiX is officially flowerstick, because it has tassels on the ends, the diameter of the shaft is also constant like in case of flowersticks, and it also has tacky wrapping on the shaft. The main difference from official flowerstick is that it is shorter than usually flowersticks are to make it easier playing for children. It also ensures more tricks and faster spinning

That is why XtremestiX cannot be compared to any other sticks, so You can call it devilstick and flowerstick too.

The function of the game

During playing, we control the main stick with our handles, while the centrifugal force, the adhesion and the tassels (weight) helps our game. There are endless tricks with hand, foot, or with any parts of the body.

9. How long does it take to learn to play?

If you already have basic level of hand skills, within a few hours, or even a few days, you can do some really good tricks. But for someone who has less skill due to age or ability, it can take weeks. The second point is not written as a discouragement, but instead to encourage those who don’t get the basic tricks and moves right away to keep trying and not give up. These are the ones – typically younger children – who most need to develop their movement. 

When the child is still walking on all fours, he or she will naturally lick the flowerstick at most, and until the age of 5-6 years, he or she will typically only hit his or her sibling with it. But when they are older and have experience of other games and sports, they will be more skillful at using the stick. If someone is already walking on their own two feet, cutting their own nails, playing football or learning kung fu, they will find it easier to play with the flowerstick.

For the more skilled and the older ones (typically over 12), the basics (the helicopter and the one-handed spin) can work in the first minute, and after a few weeks, they can already practice the best tricks (wave). For the younger ones, this usually takes longer. However, it is important to point out that, with enough perseverance, a 3-year-old can do tricks that many 10-year-olds can only dream of. 

There is no simple answer to how long it takes to learn how to play with the flowersick. If you like it and you keep doing it, you can do wonders in a few hours or a few days, and you won’t stop there. The number of tricks is endless, and it’s up to your imagination and style to see how far you can go.

And our step-by-step tutorial videos will give you all the help you need to improve.
