  • I really got to look at how to make some chucks myself, whether wood or led or such. I admire that!

    Good to know about the Safety Nunchaku!
    Yes, I believe Chad said he would test a pair with you as well, and I’m curious to know what you’d think of them. I definitely do like them now that I have them, but there is quite a stark difference in the feeling. It is a little less grippy in the lower portion, but it’s not bad, just different. And while…Read More

    • That’s exciting and I can’t wait to see what you do with them! I’ve played with those chucks before – they are super light but also quite firm.

      And that’s interesting about the Dark Monk chucks too! I know he had mentioned to me about a firmer end. I personally like the soft end as it makes it easy for me to glide out to middle/low grips mid swing but I can totally understand where you’re coming from too. It has its own unique character!

I definitely do like them now that I have them, but there is quite a stark difference in the feeling. It is a little less grippy in the lower portion, but it’s not bad, just different. And while it’s still padded, it is considerably harder. I’d say that they’re a bit more like wood chucks at this point, but still obviously more forgiving when it comes to being hit of course. I like them though, and that’s exactly what I wanted.
        I did yellow silicone with blue Dragon Rope X, and I thought those colors would be bright and popping together. However, they missed the Dragon Rope when they made it, which I let them know, but either way when that’s resolved I think they’ll look great, as they already do.
        I didn’t want to go yellow as much because many people with Dark Monk Studio Nunchaku tend to have yellow (such as you!) and I wanted more individuality. I usually with my past studio chucks and other weapons have red in the right and blue in the left. The problem is that the other colors just aren’t as obvious and when I see you swing the yellows, the trails are just so good. But the blue rope should help.
        Although I only realize now that red chucks with a blue cord and blue chucks with a red cord may have been pretty sharp enough to detract from the subdued hues. Or red/red and blue/blue. D’oh!
