generically it's just called an s-staff, buugeng is a specific kind made by dai.
not sure if i'm just behind the times in having discovered this, but i figured it needed to be shared ;)
if anyone has ANY ideas on how to make these, please let me know!
I saw an article on it a few months ago but it looks sooo amazing. I want to try it one day
I am fascinated by buugeng. It is so beautiful.
There is also this site devoted to all things buugeng. :)
Sennyo is doing an intro to buugeng workshop at Hoopfest New England, for anyone headed there in July.
after i read this last night i tried it with my cosmic sectionals. any idea how they were held together?
i pushed and twisted the pieces in opposite directions, but the push button is on the one side only. it looked pretty cool and is very tempting but i do not know if i would have the gall to attempt to drill a hole so the push button would go the other way and damage my beautiful hoops. i wonder if i could push the ends of sections into a bigger piece of tubing. hmmm.
I JUST came across videos the past week. I sooo want to try it!! They are pricey, but they are handmade in beautiful wood. I would love to order a pair :-)
Here's an awesome performance with super bright LED buugeng, I'm in love!
