Kali/Escrima Sof-Stx with a Reinforced Hickory Core are for folks who need a more rigid stick with less flex than the Hollow core. The Reinforced Hickory works so well in the Sof-Swords, we decided to try them in the Sof-Stx. We offer a THK Stk with 1/2" foam on the shaft and 1/2" high density foam at the tips for serious stabbing. We also offer a THIN Stk with 1/4" of foam on the shaft and 1/2" of high density foam at the tips for stabbing and the Hickory Reinforced Core for the more serious practitioner!
The Reinforced hickory Core has 6" of Hollow Core at the ends and hits like a Hollow Core, but has good rigidity for a less flexible Stick. Please understand that the Hollow Core Stx aren't "Wimpy", and do give you a good "Slap" for a natural reaction to the hit!
We recommend both Hollow and Reinforced for Training and Sparring. Wear Raquetball Goggles and no pads for the best Stick Fighting experience you've ever had...and a lot of FUN!
PLEASE NOTE: ALL PRICES ARE FOR ONE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT!
