I want to get some new speed chucks, I’m not so into the color of my existing ones anymore, and they also have some major blemishes.
However, the company offers the pairs with either 3 or 4 chain links.
I prefer cord, but there is nothing like chain, especially when performing or competing, so I’m cool with chain.
I’ve never had a choice between 3 or 4 links before, and I’m not exactly sure which to choose. My existing speeds have 3 links, but I have been practicing a lot with wood chucks and the Dark Monk Studio Nunchaku, which are far heavier and are fitted with a longer cord for handrolling, etc.
So I’m thinking that using 4 chain links would create a more native feel to me by having the handles further apart, although I’m sure I would get tighter and faster spins with 3 links. My existing speed chucks have 3 links, but after playing with them recently, they feel so constricting in comparison to your default nunchaku. I’ve also tried closing up on images of champion performers in the martial arts scene, and it appears that they use 3 links.
But what do you think? I do want speed chucks for speedier play, and either way, I won’t be able to perform some of our weirder Flowtricks-ey moves on them.
