I wanted to add throw streamers to my kids show so I bought a package of Cresey streamers and I worked on an idea and way to use them. The problem I kept having in rehersal was the Cresey streamers are very fragile and if one roll falls out the whole package is basically shot.
Of course you can, with patience, repair it. But if this happens during performance you are ruined. And guess what, it did happen to me during performance.
My conclusion is that the Cresey style streamers are just too delicate for me to pack, transpost, and then make an effective steal.
I now use a little bag streamer from Japan. You can transport them anywhere, anyway you like and they are ready when you get to the venue and will stay ready. And, I've not yet had a problem with them falling apart during a steal which is a major hazard of the Cresey streamers.
