As for someone that has been nunchucking since October 2002. I have to say this is a great weapon for Kata. Bit heavier, thicker and sturdier than most nunchucks I have practice with. I dont recommend it for the beginners. instead for those of you who are new to this weapon, I recommend using the foam chucks before you get serious with one of these bad boys.
Pros:Great for kata form and the more traditional forms.
Cons:Not very good for freestyle. Also, one stick can be heavier or thicker than the other, thus having an issue with balance but this applies to every nunchuck not just this one.
