This quarterstaff has a center-grip and is very flexible. It's not thrust-safe, and the decorative knobs at the ends will end up dislocated if you strike with them - we would not be surprised if they fell off with frequent use or one unfortunate hit. The foam is both soft and light, which is well suited for junior players, bur the fiberglass core is too flexible for this weapon to be used as a medieval quarterstaff. The flex lends itself more to a east Asian fighting style but we will not recommend it for this - if you try to stop a strike, the staff will function as a whip. The weapon is painted so it resembles wood.
