Hi Jake, I merged your topic to this one, I found it in the Equipment sticky. It's easier to have just one topic about the same subject.

I prefer short sticks :)

Decimals of inches like that don't mean much to people ;-)

For the record, alot of people choose the 350mm length sticks (carbon fibre I'm assuming) over the 420mm since the extra length isn't really required unless you're particularly tall.  Alot of people "choke" up on the stick and the extra length can get stuck in your sleeve.

Also alot of people choose aluminium sticks which are 25mm shorter at 325mm and people like it fine.  Horses for courses really, it's a trial and error thing unfortunately.

I got 28 cm and they are great. And I know its only about habbit, so juggle with whatever you want. Just one advice, dont change often the length of the sticks its the worst you can do when juggle. The stick must be part of your hand and you have to know in subconscious where the hand ends.

I much prefer short sticks! They are so much easier for two diabolos and they take up less string (if fibre glass or carbon fibre)
