|Rattan Speedchuck with Dragon|
After having hardwood nunchucks for so long, these took a little while to get used to. But overall, this is a great pair of nunchucks. As far as the dragon design goes, people say that it's not as shiny as the pictures. This is because judging from the picture, the dragon looks like a solid color, when it's actually painted in chrome. It looks good to me though. The weight is pretty well balanced, and the bearings are nice too. Very lightweight pair! These things can get incredibly fast. Great for demos and such. I've dropped them a few times, and I've noticed they dent pretty easily, so be careful. But overall, I'd definitely buy another pair if I had to. These rock.
Pros: I find the bearings to be very smooth and easy to handle. It comes in 3 colors: black, blue, and red. Since it's rattan, they are lightweight. This is just a personal preference, but I like using lightweight nunchucks for practice. The chrome dragon design on the two handles is really cool looking. Some coplain that it isn't shiney enough. It looks fine to me.
Cons: Some people might not like the lightweight of rattan. They also seem to dent pretty easily if dropped or hit together. I have experienced no cracking whatsoever yet though.
Other Comments: These were a great buy. I'm very satisfied with them. Great balance, cool design, so far they seem pretty durable. I would definitely buy another pair. They are great for beginners, as a first pair of nunchucks, or even for the higher skilled fighters. I wouldn't use them for sparring, but they are awesome for practice and demonstrations.
Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5
