New, thinner fiberglass flowerstick + thicker wall handstick
Thanks to our continuous experimentation, we managed to make the flowerstick more flexible and also lightened its weight. From now on, our sticks were made of 5 mm diameter fiberglass instead of 6 mm, which makes for a smoother, nicer game and, because of its lighter weight, makes it easier for young players (6-10 years old) to get the hang of the fun. In addition to the flowersticks, from this year onwards our handsticks were also made of a new, more durable fiberglass. To be lighter in weight (so even the small ones can easily hold them), they were always made of hollow material; however, the material we used before, sometimes cracked when stepped on, so we switched to thicker wall thickness.
