Easier to have henry's yellow under UV light.
Cool idea though...

I was sent that exact same link by someone the other day too!

I wonder how long the glow actually lasts, if it's anything like mr babache glow handsticks then not very long :(

What would be really cool would be fibreoptic string, probably wouldn't be workable though

isn't Glow like way better under the black light? so why not use a *fresh* *clean* glow set up with the black light so that it shines brighter?

The "divers cape rope" would be the closest diameter to existing diabolo string at 1/16th" or 1.59mm thick

Eric, henry's yellow is bright enough — glow would probably blind you :D.

yeah i've been using black lights for a while and with the glow rope it'd be brighter than the sun :) henrys yellow works great with it but i figured it can always be better, also black lights charge up glow equipment really really quickly so it'd be cool, needless but cool:)

cool thanks for that nev :)

UV equipment vs Glow equipment... Glow would be better because you could do cool effects on stage where the black light is on charging it + making it glow, then you turn it off and have it glow... =b oh the possiblities
