After playing with my strung handsticks for a while, I thought I'd try connecting two handsticks with a third handstick instead of with a string. I thought it would be a bit more difficult because it restricts movement more, but would otherwise be pretty similar. I was wrong. It's completely different, very hard, and full of possibilities I still barely understand.
The 3-sectioned handstick was made by simply attaching three normal handsticks using eye screws and zip ties. The zip ties break after not too long, but they're cheap to replace and it's an easy way to make a prototype. These photos were taken by Steve Bogart.
