What suppliers do you use to get your sticks from?
I buy mine from Tim Hartman. I like his "Ugly" Sticks
Yes, Datu Hartman makes good sticks. I also know that Mr. Parsons likes unstraightened narly sticks, which gets rid of Datu Hartman’s leftovers. You can find Hartman’s sticks at www.wdsupplies.com
I like the K.I.L. sticks.
For bulk purchasing on great quality raw rattan with skin intact contact:
Bamboo & Rattan Works, Inc.
470 Oberlin Avenue South
Lakewood, New Jersey 08701
They sell bushels of 9 foot poles that you can cut to preferred length.
I keep switching but the way I do it is to buy
9,8,7 or 6 foot lengths and then cut my own!
That is by far the cheapest and the best way
to go for me. I also wrap my sticks once they
start splintering with some black cloth hockey
tape. Once I buy a stick I have it forever! I
literally have thousands of sticks of all different
sizes! Even with the wrapping though, nothing
beats having a non-wrapped rattan stick that
has that burning smell when you are working
out! That's what keep me buying more!
