I once saw a clip of someone protecting the ends of their staff by wrapping a cord/ twine around the end. It was a tutorial, and I thought I saved it to look at later. But alas, I can't find it! Apparently, my google-fu is weak as well. Does anyone on here know what I am talking about? And do they know any video clips? Or can they explain it to me? Is there a particular knot used at the beginning or end? Does one use wood glue? Does that work for cord? Or some other glue? I have seen people at my school use electrical tape as well. Does anyone do that? I would rather do the twine as it looks better, but................ Are there other ways to protect the end of a staff from wear and tear? I have a really good 3 section staff. And I have only used it a few months, but the ends are getting all beaten up. I know they don't last forever, but I would like to extend the life of it. I think I would like to do this to my regular staffs as well. They get all pointy after years of beating/ tapping the end on the ground in certain moves.
