Our Kali Gear Rough Rattan Sticks are not as pretty as our regular rattan sticks, but they are still ready for action. They have been kiln dried, treated, and fire hardened to last longer. Because rattan is a natural product, and therefore sometimes unpredictable in it's longevity, we process our sticks from high quality raw materials. Each stick is produced from durable manau rattan, a variety that is known to be very tough and dense. The Kali Gear Rough Rattan Sticks are sold here as a pair.
Length: 26 - 31 inches
Diameter: 3/4 inch - 1 1/8 inch
Weight: 4 - 9 oz
If you have any special requests such as thick, thin, please let us know in the comments box when placing your order. We'll do our best to accommodate your specific needs.
Although functional, some of the sticks we receive from our supplier simply do not meet our standards for our regular rattan stick. These sticks are rough and sometimes a little ugly. We call these "rough." Although small imperfections on a product that is harvested from nature is to be expected, these are too rough to sell as our premium rattan stick.
The imperfections are mostly cosmetic, and may include small cracks, pits, and deep burn marks. Sometimes they have chop marks from bolos made during harvesting, lumpy nodes, or an overall rough texture. Some of them are a little crooked and some are somewhat tapered. Though they are not beautiful, these sticks work just fine for training. They are a good alternative for training when looking pretty does not matter. Buy the rough sticks to save a little money.
NOTE: The picture here is not the rough rattan sticks, it is the regular quality. These are clearance items and sold as is.
The inventory we have now is either thicker (1 - 1 1/8 inches) or thinner (about 7/8 inch) rattan sticks. We currently do not have any medium Kali Gear rough rattan sticks.

I had requested thicker sticks, if that was possible, and that is exactly what I received. The two sticks that I received were straight and uniform in length and thickness.. I am very pleased with their durability so far as well.
These rough sticks are better than competitors premium sticks.

I am a repeat customer of Kaligear.com.
I purchased the rough sticks this time, looking to save a couple of dollars. I requested that my sticks be on the heavier side.
What I received was a very high quality pair of sticks. They are heavy as requested. One of them is very slightly crooked, not enough to be perceptible during training.
There was a little bit of a black mark from the fire hardening process on one of the sticks.
Even though these are “rough” sticks, when I showed up to training, my instructor commented, “That’s a nice stick!”

Very pleased with my order. As requested, I received a bit thinner group of sticks. All are straight and will serve well for training.
Good, tough, straight sticks

I purchased a pair of these and they are great! With only minor blemishes, they are functional and solid, just as promised.
