What's the best way to find the best balance point of a dancing cane? Do you have to keep drilling holes until you find the right spot?
May the magic be with you!

The right spot is about 1/16 of an inch higher than a perfect balance point. It is better to make only one hole and make it perfect. of course it is very dificult to do right on the first time.. =)

I make the best dancing cane on the market.. (look at the Stevens web site for the Ultimate dancing cane..

I balance all the canes myself.. and when I find the center balance.. I move up one index finger higher (about a half inch) and melt a hole through the cane wiht a hot nail..

I think that 1/16 isn't enough.

After using and tossing away EVERY dancing cane on the market.. I finally decided to make my own.. and friends insisted that I sell them. I've sold about 400.. and they truely are the best ever made.. and they're only slightly heavier than 2 ounces!!!! There's no way to make one cheaper than you can buy them from Stevens.

The guy who made mine took fiberglass tubing and formed it over a beveled brass form. Then he fine-balanced it with small pebbles of buckshot in the end cap until it was perfect. It's extremely lightweight. I have never found a better one on the market, so I'm glad I met this guy ...
