I got some new sticks today form the Phillipines. I recieved two pair of kamagong sticks and they are all that I had hoped for and more. I weighed them and all weigh in at 410 grams. Yes each and every one is the exact same weight. I also recieved a free pair of rattan "seconds" free of charge that Simon said he had laying around and shipped because he had extra wieght for shipping. They look to be better than any of the rattan stick I have bought before. I also bought some dulo-dulos from him and they are the same. Perfect. He even sent a third dulo that he said was a second, but i can't see anything wrong with it. I have destroyed all the rattan sticks that I got from I&I, Century, and others. Even his seconds look to be stronger. If you want great service and great sticks please talk to the Simon at escrimakaliarnis.com. Although he says it will take two to three weeks for anything to arrive, I have recieved multiple shipments from him in less than 2 weeks. I have gotten sticks from many suppliers, but none have been as good or as cheap as these. I don't know Simon or who he is, but I will buy anything I need from him in the future.
