At a devilstick It is a juggling device that consists of a wooden stick about 50 to 80 centimeters long. The rod is mostly held round and becomes thinner towards the middle. Juggling is the devilstick with two handsticks, which are also called sticks and which are about 40 centimeters long. These are also covered with a silicone sheath. With the help of the sticks the juggler juggles the devilstick , for example, by a back and forth, by turning, throwing in the air and catching again. devilsticks are available in several variants, such as the flowersticks or the fire dewall sticks. Beginner equipment is usually provided with a rough surface, so that the sticks stick better to it. Frequently devilsticks are covered with a textile tape or a glossy foil for individual decoration.

The history of devil stick

The invention was invented devilstick probably in 16th century China. Rumors say that similar jugglers existed thousands of years ago. Of the devilstick is referred to in China as „Hua Kun“, which means „flowery stick“ means. Originally juggled with three bamboo sticks, two of which were slightly thinner and used as handsticks. The thicker bamboo stick was provided with a tassel at each end, resembling a flower. That’s why the name „flowery stick“. The devilstick in China was mainly used in plays, the opera or folk dances as a baton. Incidentally, the name „devilstick“ is not derived from the English word „devil“, but comes originally from the Greek word „diaballo“, which means „tossing and turning“.

Variants of devil stick

The most well-known variant of the devilsticks is the Flowerstick, which is provided with rubber ruffles at the ends. The Flowerstick usually also has a spiral profile, which consists of a duct tapeor one Clothes lineconsists. A flowerstick consists of a fiberglass rod and a wrapping made of silicone or leather. Leather as a wrap for devilsticks offers the advantage that the center of gravity is better shifted and rotation around its own axis is prevented. Leather also absorbs the vibration caused by the glass fiber rod. With the Flowersticks many more tricks can be practiced than with a normal devilstick wooden, since these are already more sophisticated in the execution. Another variant of devilsticks is the Feuerdevilstick, which is provided at the two ends with a wick fabric. This tissue will turn into a normal one lamp oildipped to light it afterwards. With a Fire Deeper Stick you can achieve wonderful visual effects especially after dark. An experimental variant of devilstick is the Devils Triangle invented in 1997. Three equally long rods are used, which together form an isosceles triangle and with which very special tricks can be demonstrated.

Play with devilsticks

In addition to juggling with devilsticks, there is also a game form called Jolleystick. The word Jolleystick consists of the three terms „juggling“, „volleyball“ and „devilstick“ together, which describes the execution of the game well. Because it juggle two people devilsticks each other, which are thrown over a tense network and must be caught and jibbed back by the opponent. This game can only be done by skilled devilstick jugglers, as it requires some tricks like propeller throws.
