The Rope Dart, like many fire props, was used as a weapon in ancient times. Now as a flow art, it delivers intense, show-stopping performances utilizing body wraps, precision shots, and delicate dance moves to captivate audiences. The elongated, cylindrical head design of our weighted Moonblaze wick allows for clean, straight lines on your lunges, as well as balance and control in your spinning. The optimized Moonblaze knot was designed to absorb the ideal amount of fuel resulting in longer, brighter burns, lasting up to 7 minutes in dry conditions.
The wick is connected via twist link chain, with hardware that has been stress tested in extreme conditions for your safety. Hardware is secured with a sealed bowline knot to ensure durability, and our 5/16th braided cotton rope is strong, comfortable on the skin, and resistant to tangling. The end of the rope is anchored with a PX3 knob, to ensure good grip on your shots and better control with contact moves.
The total length is from the end of the wick to the end of the knob. Not sure how long of a Rope Dart to purchase? A good starting length is twice the height of the user. Alternatively, one can hold the end of a rope in one hand, stretching their arms out to either side, and letting the other end of the rope fall and hit the ground. The length of rope between your first hand and the ground will be your total length. Rope length is adjustable to your preferences, up to 16’.
