WoodiX is the basic kind of stick, in case of very low budget. Tha main difference compared with fiberglass sticks is beeing breakable, and rigid. Footplay is not recommended with WoodiX. Starting to play with wood or fiberglass devilstick means not much difference, but after some practice (1-2 week – 1-2 month), the flexibility of fiberglass gives more fun and also better and easier tricks.
FiberiX: is the basic kind of fiberglass stick. Good choice for everybody between 6 – 99 years. The only difference compared to ProfiX (best stick of XtremestiX), is that the shaft material of hand sticks are from (10mm diameter) wood (ProfiX has 8mm fiberglass)
LongiX: 10 cm longer, than FiberiX. In some countries, most people prefer playing with real (long) flowerstick. This sticks spins more slowly and it is easier holding it in air, although some tricks cannot be presented because of the longness. It is not recommended for children, and for small physique persons.
ProfiX: The most professional XtremestiX model, built from using only the best materials for all generations. Compared with FiberiX, the only different is the fiberglas shaft handstick (FiberiX has wood shatf handstick)

When the stick gets dirty, it is disadvanaged for not just the beauty, but also the adhesion. In this case You can clean it with water or soapy water, but take care, not using too much water, because it makes not good for the tassel. When ths silicone is wet (after cleaning, rain or dew), it is also very slippery but after getting dry, it will look and behave like new.

Chinese improved also the tassel on the ends of stick.

They did not use it for playing, but as an equipment of their magic ritual. Devilstick was first brought to Europe from China in the end of the 18th century and it’s spread was thanks to the 1960’s ages hippie era.

DEVILSTICK vs FLOWER STICK/ vs XtremestiX
There are some difference between flowerstick and devilstick:
1. Devilstick is usually shorter than flower stick
2. Devilstick has no tassels on the end of the main stick.
3. Devilstick (main stick) has thinner middle with the diameter increasing towards the ends
4. Devilstick has no tacky wrapping (just bare shaft)
XtremestiX is officially flowerstick, because it has tassels on the ends, the diameter of the shaft is also constant like in case of flowersticks, and it also has tacky wrapping on the shaft. The main difference from official flowerstick is that it is shorter than usually flowersticks are to make it easier playing for children. It also ensures more tricks and faster spinning
That is why XtremestiX cannot be compared to any other sticks, so You can call it devilstick and flowerstick too.
