Thank you NoFilmSchool for this product review. I would like to repeat here once again that I always encourage all interested people to buy/collect (simple) shards, foils or crystals from grandma's chandelier. Anything that looks good, creates a good effect in front of the optics is top! Most of us - at Flarestick.com team - have a bag, a case with all kinds of bits and pieces. But, the Flaresticks are a very comfortable way of working...if you don't feel like searching and collecting your shards, foils and crystals by yourself, you will be very well supplied with the Flaresticks! The use and the positioning in front of the optics becomes very simple by the stick. And the effects that the sticks produce have been subjected to many (light) tests and selected by numerous DoP´s .
It's fun to work with...try it out!
