My fiance and I actually make our own devilsticks, and try to sell them, wherever we go. I have them for sale on my etsy page. In fact, the devilsticks are the only things I have in my etsy shop, lol. I have a variety of colors to choose from.
My friend Markus Furtner work with Mr. Babache Sticks which are quite good (like all other babache tools).
So the most important question is: Does your husband work with devilsticks or is he new with that prop? If he´s new, i would prefer jellysticks which are slowlier etc., later solid devilsticks are better.
My friend just gave me a pair of LED Yoho! devil sticks which retail at about $55NZD each (don't know the conversion) and they're amazing. I mostly use them for baton work but they've got quite sticky bodies so they grip the sticks really well and I can tell you that I use to be atrocious with the devil sticks I owned before these ones but I've actually managed to do a lot of stuff I hadn't been able to before with these ones. AND they're LED which is fun :D
