Then you have mastery of a weapon that can be two bludgeons , a bludgeon and a flail, two flails, or a long whip.

I just remember hanging out in my Sifu's living room and braining myself with one when I was just starting out. Then I asked him if we HAD to learn how to use it. he thought it was amusing but it took me a couple of hours to see how funny that situation was. That and the chain whip are still two of the weapons I haven't started yet. But that was because I had to step away from MAs for a while.
Someday I'll pick'em up, but for now it's just the basics with those two.Jaguar's MMA record

Pretty much the worst weapon ever IMO.
I can't think of an equivilent in any other culture. China seems to have a fascination with creating the most impractical weapons possible.

Numchucks are much worse. They are almost not even a weapon.
The 3 sectional staff has advantages. It goes around things. It can trap. Personally, I am not trained in the use of the weapon, so I can not comment any further. I have seen it used by someone trained in using it, and I would not discount it in capeable hands.
The Chinese have some weapons that are more dangerous (to the one weilding it) than the 3 sectional, trust me on that.
