      its difficult to describe but if you try to keep your wrists just a fraction looser, so that when you are catching and throwing it with the hand stick (not hitting, you cant control it if you hit it) you just give an extra little bit of give when you catch it you should get better results.
       
      Flowersticks (especially the silcone covered ones like lunasticks) are very forgiving with hitting but you wont get away with it using slicker, harder sticks. Once you get the whole difference in control thing down though its fairly easy to transfer what you can do with a flowerstick into almost anything. I was messing about in the back garden the other day and was able to use a (small) yardbrush as the devilstick. I thought it was fairly impressive, but when i showed people all i got was the usual "throw it higher, throw it higher" I wonder why I bother sometimes... Although they were impressed by the aluminium baseball bat.
       
      If you try to separate out the catching and throwing movement into 3 parts - catch / control - draw back - propel forward - to learn it first it helps, it doesnt look pretty but it can be helpful to learn.
      just go easy, let them roll. you'll get it.

      That's about where I'm at, John. I'm getting to be very good at flower sticks, but can't do one of the devil sticks to save my life. Probably just a matter of practicing, like you thought.
