    I had one of their polymer escrima sticks, but it didn't hold up for too long, so it is doubtful that a longer weapon will hold up any better.

    How did they fall apart? Cold Steel makes baseball bats out of that stuff and they claim its unbreakable. Surely Cold Steel would never say their products are better than they actually are!

    Haha, right. Surely not them. It snapped clean in half. Had a large air bubble in it and plenty of small ones on the cross section.

    I've been thinking about buying one of their war clubs made out of that stuff so I'd have a new toy to swing around. Your story will definitely affect my decision.
