That's probably shittier than a 3SS.

The people spun the thing really quick and the chains and balls spin around as well. Occasionally they would throw it up in the air and catch it again.
It looked impressive, but had they fucked up, they could easily have ended up with a black eye, a broken nose and a smack in the gonads all at the same time.
Definately not very practical.
I think they use that for wrist strength and flexibility. I do not belive they fight with it.

Enough to incapicate, maim or kill? Say someone really intent on stabbing/beating/raping/killing you?
Fool do you dare question my dizzy spin tactics?
I don't blame them!!

I hope they don't fight with it. Everything else they were using there was being used as a weapon, so I assumed it was too.

So I get from this post that because several people have no clue how to use a certain weapon, that they must be crap?
I'm guessing that you guys would kill yourselves trying to operate a nuclear submarine, but that doesn't make it a bad weapon.
If a weapon is crap, at least come up with a better reason than, "I hurt myself trying to use one."
I think that you're taking this thread to much to heart. It's not that the weapon is "crap," it's just that no one without EXTENSIVE training devoted to such weapons would be able to wield them with out hurting themselves or others (by accident or just plain stupidity). The fact of the matter is A LOT of people ignore this fact, hence, a stupid weapon.

Besides, who would ever walk around with any of the above weapons on there person for self defense?
"I hurt myself trying to use one." That is a good reason a weapon is crappy. Also, you forget that we are just trying to have a laugh!
Just common sense.
edit: or they're just CRAPPY weapons.
