The Trickster Devil Stick is an excellent introductory devil stick and comes complete with control sticks.
It is a tapered stick with rubber end caps. The decoration along each stick is attractive and also provides a slightly textured surface for extra grip.
The taper on this devil stick means that much of its weight is kept to the ends, allowing more momentum which is great for tricks like "propellers".
The wooden control sticks are an ideal first set of sticks - they come with a 1mm coating of black silicone which should give just the right amount of stickiness.
If you've tried Flower Sticks and want the next step up, or if you want to jump straight into gyroscopic juggling, this is the perfect place to start.
