Our Rough Plain Rattan Sticks have been fire hardened and treated. Two sticks are included in each order.
Although functional, some of the sticks we received from our supplier simply do not meet our standards for our basic rattan stick. In short, these sticks are a little ugly and rough. Although in small amounts, small imperfections on a product that is harvested from nature is to be expected, but these are a little too rough.
Imperfections may include small cracks, pits and deep burn marks, lumpy nodes, worm holes and overall rough textures. Some of them are not straight and some are tapered. Though they are not beautiful, these sticks can be used, and should last as long as a regular quality stick. These are a good alternative for training on a budget.
PLEASE NOTE: The picture here is not the rough rattan sticks. These are clearance items and sold as is. This offer is until supplies run out.
Length: 26 - 31 inches
Diameter: approximately 7/8 inch
Weight: 5 - 9 oz

Though these are the rough sticks, I found their quality to be marvelous. Perfect for the beginner as well as the advanced student of the Filipino Martial Arts!!!

These sticks are an excellent value for the price. The imperfections on the 5 pairs I ordered are purely cosmetic. I will absoletely purchase more of these as I go through them in training.
Cant go wrong for the quality, price or the service.

These are great sticks for those who want to train with them on a regular basis. For those who do train sticks regularly you know how quickly you can go through a pair with heavy use. If your not concerned with the cosmetic imperfections(however they are still good looking sticks), then these are the sticks for you. If you want aesthetically pleasing sticks vs practical training sticks then these are not for you. For the price, these sticks are a steal...

they are very good and clean sticks with very few imperfections at all. A great bargain.
At this price, it's a steal!

Sticks at this price are usually cheap and break within a couple of uses. But, these are still high quality sticks. They are not just cheap sticks, but have the weight and feel of a higher quality stick. They are just a few rough spots.They are great for practicing by yourself, on a tire or on a bag or, with a little TLC, they are suitable for practicing in class.
Best deal I've seen this year!

So...are these rough? Sure - they were described as rough, right? Took a few minutes with some snadpaper and steel wool and some spray-on quick drying varnish-like stuff to clean them up, but if you're too lazy to do that, you'll probably gripe about them. They're good for tire banging etc. as is; mine are now good for training activities. Buy 'em and work with 'em!
