Kali/Escrima Sof-Thick sticks w/Handles have a rubber coating for durability, and give you that "Slap" that makes you react naturally to the strike!
There is 1/2" of high density foam at the tips for aggressive thrusting.
Both the THICK STX and THIN STX have a 6" handle that is more like gripping a real stick.
The Hollow core Sof-Stx have a slight flex that allows them to whack you pretty good, without blunt trauma injury. The 21" Sof-Stx might be the "perfect" padded weapons. They feel great, and are highly recommended for children in combat mode!
The Reinforced Hickory core Sof-Stx add Rigidity to the Hollow core sticks and feel more like a real stick.
The Nylon core Sof-stx are for those folks that like some heft...they do hit harder.
