Our favorite glow toy!
We've played with poy, staffs, and years of fire... but nothing does the crazy stuff this whip does. It's not only beautiful, but there's a feeling in the fiber optics that you get to know personally to do some amazing flow arts with it. Well built, metal and looks like it will last forever

This is truly the most awesome toy ever, and the quality is excellent. I would recommend buying the extra batteries and battery pack though; one to take to festivals and one to leave at home.

I bought myself this whip after buying the fiberflies whip from flowtoys and having all the strands fall out after just a month or two of use. This whip is superior in so many ways. Not only are the color combinations out of this world, but it's more durable and moves better around your body. My fiberflies whip would lose strands literally every time I used it, it was like it was shedding, by the end it just looked pathetic. But this whip has only lost about 3-5 strands since December and thats because I'm pretty tough on it. AND it's cheaper here. Such a good deal. So awesome. I ALWAYS get asked where I got it and I always tell people to come right here.

I have been led gloving for about a year, but nothing makes people smile as brightly or get as excited as when I pulled out the whip. The flashlight itself has some decent weight to it and feels really well built over all. The actual whip accessory is also very well put together unlike other "whips" out there on the market. This one really is one of the most fantastic flow/glow toys out there you can buy. I will soon have 2 of these whips because one doesn't seem like enough. My 5 Stars is only 5 stars because they wouldn't let me give it more...

I first discovered the fiber optic whip with the Trip Whip a year and a half ago. It became my thing and I took it everywhere, and I thought nothing was cooler than anTrip Whip.. until I discovered the Space Lace! The 27 color modes as opposed to 10, the feel of the soft fiber optics as opposed to the stiff ones.. It blows in out of the water. So I was once a Trip Whipper.. but now I am a Space Lacer! Can't wait to try the other fiber optic whips!!

I have seen the lights
As with Tara in her review, I've been a huge fan of the trip whip for some time now. I've taken it to a number of large festivals and always drew crowds. Then I got my hands on a Space Lace at TomorrowWorld and I'm a convert. First off, the fibers are almost plesant to touch while performing where the trip whip's fibers could get a bit pokey at times. The fibers so far seem more resiliant, but the fact that there are many more of them makes losing a strand or two less of a big deal. As the Laces are replaceable for $40-50, it's more cost effective than a trip whip which needs the entire unit replaced to get a fresh set of fiber optics. And then there are the LED modes. There's nothing I've seen that blinks that blinks as awesomely as the Space Laces do.

I fell in love with the Space Lace the first time that I saw it. It is a fun toy at any event and it will dazzle others as you play with you Space Lace. Its very durable, and it also has multiple accessories. You can make your Space Lace into a saber by purchasing an additional attachment.

A hypnotic toy with a long-lasting impression
I received a 6 ft. flare Space Lace back in June for my 21st birthday. It is my first "rave toy," and I am beyond obsessed with it. The color modes are absolutely beautiful and entertaining. I'm a beginning Lacer, but understanding how the whip moves and learning to manipulate it with your body is a cakewalk, and with the flare version, there's practically no limit to the tricks you can figure out.
The whip is bold, fluid and elegant in motion, and certainly attention-grabbing. I've brought my Space Lace to a lot of parties and gatherings, and so many people have come up to me comparing how the whip appears to them a glowing snake or a wild group of fireflies, and they've all said how crazy it is that the whip just seems to "come alive," and it does! Videos and pictures don't do justice for how wild and tantalizing the Space Lace is in person. Batteries last for a long time, charge quickly, and switching them is easy. A night of wild lightshows with the Space Lace is always a possibility.
Not to mention that the people behind Ants on a Melon are absolutely wonderful; they are helpful, kind, and they love seeing their customers enjoying their products. Five stars all across the board, hands down one of the greatest LED toys out there. I can't wait to see what else they come up with for the Space Lace.
Lace it up!

A MUST FOR FESTIVALS
We ordered a Space Lace and Saber package this past Christmas for our krew. We like to take it to shows and festivals. The crowd that surrounds you as soon as you pull it out makes it worth it every time. People love to play with the fibers of the whip. The are so many color modes to choose from. We always keep people on their toes as we change the show at the flick of a button. Each battery lasts about 2 hours of continuous use. The build quality is superb and we have not lost a single fiber from the whip. We drop it constantly because of practicing with the saber and it has had no issues.

Great product and customer service
This whip is just awesome! Pictures cant do it justice, you have to see it in action! Absolutely great and you can steal the show whereever you want to bring it! The build quality is superb! The handle is metal and the fibres are very well attached and I havn't lost a single strand despite people stepping on it while I've been whipping away. My only complaint is that it is a little bit of a process to swap batteries as you have to take it apart, it's not really a problem however, it's quick and simple, but nothing you do on a dark dancefloor. The company has been great as well! I had to add a few things to my order and I had a quick and fast response. Highly recommended!

BitWhip is a lot of fun! Seems durable.
Received the BitWhip last week and was super excited to try it out. Honestly, I am very impressed with it. My girlfriend and I decided to have a fun night together and she couldn't stop playing with the toy. A few things to note. The battery only lasts a few hours. So keep one charging at all times. I would get some extras and pre-charge them when going to festivals. We dropped the whip a few times with no issues. So it seems very durable. The next day I did notice a few strands on the ground. I think the best thing about this toy is its very easy to work with. Its not like poi where there is a large learning curve. You could hand this to pretty much anyone and they could have fun.

Fast delivery of all products Approx. 2-3 business days. Upon delivery of the Product the Quality of the handle and the Fiber whips were phenomenal. Best quality i have seen in a while. Not bashing another company but I ordered previous whips for my wife the week before TomorrowWorld from GloFX they were good until the fibers actually just all feel out of the handle day two of TomorrowWorld.

I have never been big into EDM or raves. I love dancing, but just hadn't ventured in that direction. A friend of mine recently introduced me to that scene. She uses a hoop. I tried that, but I didn't have a great flow with it. I saw a girl dancing with one of these whips and knew right away I wanted to buy one! I'm so happy that I did. It is the coolest thing ever!! I've only had it for a few days, so I can't attest to the long term wear of the product. The batteries do need to be changed about every 45 minutes to an hour of constant use (changing colors/patterns often), but they also charge pretty fast. As long as you have extras along, it isn't a big deal. It's very bright and beautiful. Customer service was excellent! There was a small issue with my order, but they were friendly and fixed everything without a fuss. I will definitely be ordering from this company again!

I spent every single night with my BitWhip at a large camping festival. Each night, a fully charged battery would last for about 4-5 hours of continuous play. Not only did my whip arrive in the mail 4 days after I ordered it, but Ants on a Melons customer service is phenomenal. I had lost a piece of my whip at the festival, and after easily contacting the company, I was offered spare parts for replacement and future use!
The glow toy is mesmerizing and powerful, compared to other whips, the BitWhips at this festival caught everyones attention. Most people haven't seen anything like it before. I met a couple who flowed with BitWhips, and we spent an entire set enchanting people around us with what the whips could do.
