Our foam padded Kali/Escrima Thin Stx w/Handle feel just like a real rataan stick.
Our Double ended Thin Stx are probably the most used. They are very much like the real rataan sticks. The Double ended can be disarmed and returned using the other end.
For more realism, we make the Thin Sof-Stx w/Handle. These feel like a real stick, but can't be returned using the Handle end without using "Control" on the return!
We like to use the Nylon core thin Sof-Stx for heavy bag work. It also serves as a great "Self Defense" baton, instead of a real stick.
