Thanks kindly you Mr.Pinko for spreading the news. And thanks also to Mr. Stick Man for battle testing his stick for us. My first take, based on that research, is we need thicker sticks. Light enough to swing, too strong to shatter…too often.
Could have the videos have been any shorter? I’m with you on this. I want to see real reprisal against these punks who think they are warriors. They are not warriors. They are bed wetting pussies living in mommy’s basement. Apply the hickory.
A kendo bamboo or wooden practice sword will do much better then a dowel. I have knocked out a person with the bamboo sword, knocked them upside the head, on the temple. He dropped like a sack of cement.
You can buy 1.25″ diameter solid polycarbonate rod, 36″ long for about $50-$75 depending on where you go. It’s used in some food handling equipment, if anybody happens to ask.
It’s very hard to break.
Oddly, the newer riot batons are 1.25″ diameter x 36″ polycarbonate, they cost about the same as the generic rod, but you would need a badge to buy one most places, and you probably couldn’t use them in that food handling equipment you’re fixing, anyway.
