New Thing #246: Devil Sticks


Devil Sticks are super cool. I have always been in awe of people who know what they’re doing with the things. More than anything else they’re capable of, I have always wanted to snap the roller into the air and catch it on its way back down.

As is usually the case with things that look easy, they really aren’t.

After about an hour I managed to mostly get the hang of sliding it from one end of the string to the other. But my depth perception constantly failed me in the landing department.

I wish I was fourteen again and it was my summer vacation so I could just stand around and practice for a month.

These things are just plain fun and, surprisingly, they didn’t frustrate me like I’d expect them to. Hopefully I’ll have time to pull them out during the next batch of good weather we get.
