First Contact: Beginner's Contact Staff Book

Average
Played with a contact staff before? No...? Go for it! Review by Pyro_Kyle , 05/07/2013
Value
This book is Very much for the first time contact spinner. I say that because I purchased this book after about three months of spinning. Like most people I know who spin contact, I borrowed staffs off friends and got them to show me tricks before investing in a staff for myself. This meant that this book wasn't too helpful for me, every trick in the book I had learnt a month after picking up a staff!
BUT...
If someone was a first time contact spinner (e.g. done trad staff and wants to take it to the next level) or a complete novice this book is very good!
The diagrams are very easy to follow and split the moves down to their base components in a way where it is very easy to digest!

In summary :-
Good book If you have just picked up the staff but if you can steve and conveyor look for something more advanced!
