The staff is short but robust and reliable. It's not this that bends if you fight against another staff - see our video below to see what we mean. There's approximately 5cm from core to end, but the tip-guard can be felt about ½cm from the end, and if thrusting with the staff the tip-guard and end will bend to the side so the full power from the core hits the opponent. The foam is dense and hard, but not remarkably heavy - however a fast strike will deliver a noticably hit. The staff's finish is dark brown with groves to indicate a wood structure. Where the lenght might tempt junior players, it can be difficult to handle safely. We recommend a minimum age of 15 - you must have sufficient strength to controll the mass of the weapon safely.
