    My Patent lawyer filed my patent for me this week so I can now show y'all what I have been up to. I started working with the guys at composite craft (they make C-Tec) last year. Given their experience working with resins and casting I approached them with my latest idea. This is the next generation of glow stone I will be selling it as Fire Fly handles. This example was cast in orang but it will be available in other colors. Apart from looking cool and being highly visible in full light, low light the new method of making glow stone gives 3 + fold improvement in performance in no light.

    Cool stuff!!!!!!!
    Is it possible to have it the same shade of green during the day like the glow at night?
    The glowing green is just awesome. I like the 3 dimensional look of it. The bigger the handle the better it will show.

    Is this composite stone or all polymer? How is the impact resistance?

    The glow material is stabilized and then cast in resin then het cured, it takes three or fore hits with a 16 oz hammer to crack it. The last prototype has ben int the field for 6 months and counting with out trouble
