Every so often, we would get a request for a larger than 1" diameter stick. Large practitioners that can or want to handle the heavier weights now have 2 new options to pick from, the +P at 17 ounces and the +P+ at 21 ounces.
These heavy sticks also do a good job of bridging into what you might be using for an improvised weapon. To be honest, when we first started working with them, they would wear you out. However, you get used to it and it is very satisfying to wallop a pell or bag!
Since all of our Bodyguard Escrima Sticks use the same polymer, there is no shock transmitted to the hand. These sticks can withstand any amount of punishment you can dish out.
