This is an excellent product at a very reasonable price. When I tried to buy an extra long deck brush handle to use as a bo it was twice the price. The tapered ends make it more manageable and cool looking. I have bought over 50 for my club in the last couple of years without a single complaint.
Fabulous value for money, light weight bo staff great for a beginner in weapons training. Bought as a gift for someone who is just starting with weapons but I would happily use it instead of my more expensive version.
I have weighed 3 of our bo and they average 970g each. We have used these at our dojo in Woking for years. Our sensei has a bo he bought in Okinawa (at a huge cost) and that weighs 995g, so these are pretty much bang on. We have only ever broken one at the end during a particularly strenuous bout against a Japanese oak bokken, so they are tough!
I've been using one of these for 8 years for Ryukyu Kobudo kata and kumite. They are not as dense or hard a wood as Okinawan bo (or as heavy!!) but at the price they are unbeatable. Very tough and withstand repeated abuse - ideal for student and sensei alike. I do find the quality of the red oak wood varies from bo to bo, but as I say, at the price, no grumbles at all. I've purchased several of these over the years for our dojo and happy with their use.
