We offer three kinds of spinning plates, all of them can be used for teaching or performing. The plates are all made out of plastic and come with a stick. The main use of spinning plate is in schools and circus camps. It is fairly easy to learn and can be used as a first level prop. The spinning plate is a idea prop for simple end of class performances. The spinning plate is easy to use with a mouth stick for combination tricks, or spun on your finger once it is turning.
Play Spinning Plate
This is the smallest size plate with a outside diameter of 9 inches and a height of 1 1/2 inches. It is made of very soft plastic which is good in some school setting where the plates are thrown around like Frisbees and do not hurt if you are hit. The plate has a weight of 75 grams and comes in UV colors. The stick is made of a PVC shaft, with a spinning tip cap. The tips do tend to break off over time and can be bought separately. For order of 6 or more plates the sticks come with a once piece (22.5 inches long) stick. Small orders (less than 6 plates) they come with a two piece, so they can fit into a smaller box.
Renegade Spinning Plate
This plate is a little larger than the Play plate with a diameter of 9.5 inches and a height of 1 5/8 with a weight of 95 grams This plate is made of a harder material with some flex. The harder plate spins longer and does not wobble like the soft plastic plates, and is easier to start spinning. However if the class is wild and the students are throwing (Frisbee throw) the plates at each other the harder plastic and heavier weight of this plate can hurt. The plate does not hurt if you drop it on your self while try to learn plate spinning, only if it is thrown. It comes with a one piece ABS plastic stick, 19.5 inches long. This stick is a little stiffer than the Play stick and has a molded in tip, that does not wear out or need to be replaced.
Hernys Spinning Plate
This is the largest model spinning plate with a diameter of 10 inches and a height of 1 5/8 inch. The plastic is hard about the same as the Renegade Plate. It has a weight of 105 grams, so this plate would also hurt of the students are throwing plates at each other. The larger size and weight makes the plate spinning longer and is just as easy to learn with. It does not hurt if you hit yourself while trying to learn the prop. This plate has the best visual look as it is bigger size. It can be purchased with a two piece wood stick, which is very nice but hard to clean compared to plastic sticks. The Hernys plate cost considerably more so it is better suited for a performance than teaching large classes.

I have a hard time getting these to work for anything beyond the basics. The plate is very light and the end of the stick makes it hard to do tricks.
