I was wondering if anyone has experience in comparing the different padded sticks on the market. So far the ones I'm aware of are: Cheapo generic padded - Century I think (15 - 20) Lameco - lamecoeskrima.com (20 I think) SMAK stik - smakstiks.com (45 - 49) Got stick? - Bloodsport.com (35) Standard Actionflex (39 from a local store) "Stiffer" Actionflex (45 at the dogbrothers site) getting out of a bad relationship has afforded me a tiny bit of money to burn on the things that interest me most (FMA) consequently I've placed orders for 2 SMAK sticks (based on previous reviews Ive read here), 1 Lameco, 1 ATF Got stick? to add to the 2 standard actionflex sticks I currently use for my sparring. I had two of the cheapos but they self-destructed a long time ago. My question is this.. has anyone else done any comparisons or has experience with different builds of padded stick. or do you make your own? I'll put up my review with photos when everything gets in this week.
