Product description

Choosing the right kevlar size for your Fire Buugeng is crucial for performance and safety. The 10 mm kevlar rope offers a balanced burn time and is more beginner-friendly, making it ideal for those new to fire spinning. It provides a moderate flame and is easier to handle.

On the other hand, the 16 mm kevlar rope produces a richer, fuller flame and lasts longer, but it is significantly more dangerous. This option is best suited for advanced fire spinners who have extensive experience and can manage the larger, hotter flames safely.

Choose the size that matches your skill level and performance needs.

The price is for a pair.

What is halfgeng?

Buugeng is one of the most famous object manipulation props. Its typical S shape also led to the name S staff, but the original idea comes from two half circles flipped and connected in the middle. 


The first form of this unique prop was shown to the juggling and circus world by juggler Michael Moschen. The name buugeng was created only later by Japanese artist Dai Zaobab who also redesigned it to the form we know today. The word Buugeng stands for a combination of two Japanese words: Buu – martial art and Geng – the illusion. 


By spinning the buugeng, you create visual illusions, but that’s only part of the fun. With our non-magnetic wooden buugeng, you can explore all kinds of tricks, including contact buugeng, balancing, throws, or quad buugeng manipulation. Practicing with buugeng might be challenging at first, but the positive results are worth it!

Factors Affecting Burn Time

Burn time for Fire Buugeng is influenced by a variety of factors. Understanding these elements can help you achieve the best performance and ensure safety. Watch our comparison video to see the differences between 10mm and 16mm kevlar ropes, and how these sizes come into play. After watching, read on for a detailed breakdown of what affects your burn time:

  • Size of Kevlar: Thicker kevlar ropes, like 16mm, tend to burn longer and produce a richer flame compared to thinner ones like 10mm.
  • Condition of Kevlar: Well-maintained kevlar, free from fraying or wear, burns more efficiently and evenly.
  • Type of Fuel: Different fuels have varying burn rates and temperatures, affecting how long the fire lasts.
  • Amount of Fuel: More fuel generally results in a longer burn time, but it can also affect flame size and safety.
  • Weather Conditions: Temperature and wind significantly impact burn time; wind can affect flame size and unpredictability, while cold temperatures can affect fuel performance.
  • Tricks and Movements: The speed and type of tricks performed—sudden movements and high-speed spins—can alter how quickly the fuel is consumed.

Fire safety

Fire spinning is a hazardous activity by definition. The only way to totally avoid harm is to avoid spinning with fire. However, using proper safety gear, such as our Kevlar sleeve and Kevlar hat, can significantly reduce the risk of injury. With that in mind, here are some strategies for minimizing the hazards it presents:

Make sure you have no loose kevlar that’s coming off the wick. If there are stray threads, cut them off with a strong pair of scissors before you use them. Next, check your fire buugeng for any loose parts.

Finally, are you in good mental and physical condition? Are you alert and focused? It’s preferable to be safe than sorry, so honesty is the best policy.

Another thing to consider: mixing alcohol or drugs and fire spinning is not a good idea. Things can go horribly wrong for everyone if one mistake is made, and they’re more likely to occur when your judgment is clouded.

What you wear while fire spinning is important. You want natural fibers that are loose fitting and won’t melt to your skin if they catch on fire. Wool, cotton, and leather are all good choices.

Avoid man-made fibers like polyester, nylon, and spandex. They will melt and stick to your skin if they catch on fire, potentially causing serious burns.

And of course, avoid loose clothing that could catch on fire. If you have long hair, tie it back so it doesn’t become a liability. The bottom line is to use common sense and be as safe as possible. With a little bit of care, you can enjoy fire spinning for years to come.

There are a variety of fuels you can use for fire spinning. The most common is lamp oil (in Europe) or Naphtha, also called White Gas or Coleman Fuel (in the United States). All fuels vary in their flash point (the temperature at which they ignite), burning temperature, and burning time.

Never use gasoline! It’s extremely flammable and burns much hotter than the other fuels, making it very dangerous.

Before you start spinning, you need to fuel the wick. For fire buugeng we suggest pouring the fuel on the kevlar rope. Goal is to put enough fuel to soak the rope without it dripping the fuel. If you can see fuel dripping off the wick, there’s too much. You want a happy medium where the wick is saturated but not dripping.

Once the wick is saturated, give it a minute to soak in before lighting. This will help prevent the flame from going out as soon as you start spinning.

A safety spotter is someone who watches you while you’re spinning and is there to help if anything goes wrong. It’s always good to have at least one spotter, but more is always better. They should be familiar with the basics of fire safety and first aid, in case they need to put out a fire or tend to a burn.

The spotter’s job is to make sure you have enough room to spin, watch for any hazards that might come into the area, and be ready to put out a fire or help if something goes wrong. They should also be familiar with your routine so they know when to expect you to stop spinning and how to help if you need it.

It’s important to have a set of signals between you and your safety spotter so they know when to start and stop spinning, and what to do if something goes wrong.

Now that you’re all fueled up and have a safety spotter, you’re ready to start spinning! The first thing to do is light the wick. Once it’s lit, give it a few seconds to get going before you start spinning. This will help prevent the flame from going out as soon as you start moving.

Now you’re ready to start your routine. Remember to stay aware of your surroundings and be careful not to get too close to people or things that can catch on fire. If something does catch on fire, stop spinning and put it out immediately.

Once you’re done spinning, extinguish the flame with a safety blanket. And that’s it! With a little practice, you’ll be spinning like a pro in no time. Just remember to always be safe and have fun!

Do you want to dive into the world of object manipulation fully? Then we recommend getting buugeng. This prop, also called s staff, has a more extended history than halfgengs. The tricks are more explored and different approaches to create with them developed over time.

Are you a beginner who likes fans, dancing or juggling but it’s also curious what the world of object manipulation has to offer? If you are at the beginning of your flow journey or have a fan spinning background, then we believe you will enjoy our halfgengs more. They have a more enjoyable learning curve and plenty of similar tricks with fans. Many people find it easier to dance with them, and you can use many movements and tricks from other props.


On the other hand, why not get both? If you already tried spinning four buugengs, aka quad buugeng, we recommend getting four halfgengs to explore more object manipulation possibilities. You can also choose a different amount of halfgeng & buugeng to explore quad buugeng spinning from a whole new perspective.

The minimum amount is always a pair. You can order our products in different quantities with a discount – we like to support quad buugeng tech, group training and creations or other experiments with multiple props!

No. We differ from other buugeng sellers by creating Non-magnetic buugeng/s staffs. It means that buugeng is one piece and is not foldable. The main advantage is that whenever you drop it, it stays together, and you can pick it up and continue flowing. It is also perfectly balanced to the centre and more suitable for quad buugeng spinning as no magnets are affecting your tricks. The main inspiration for this design is the shape & weight of a Pyroterra Lighttoys LED buugeng. Our buugeng is perfect for those who plan to protect their precious LEDs while learning cool tricks. It comes with a handy bag so you can travel with it comfortably even if it’s unfoldable.

No, we don’t sell LED buugeng. The unique thing about our buugeng design is that it fits the shape and the grip of LED buugeng from Pyroterra Lighttoys! This way, you can safely practice your future performance and tricks before you invest in LED buugeng. We highly recommend checking the led FT programmable buugeng from Lighttoys.

There are plenty of buugeng/s staff tutorials for all levels on Youtube for free! We highly recommend the tutorials for beginners from Colin Peterson focused on basics and fundamental motions.
