    Uh, are you training la canne de combat, or some walking stick stuff? Because la canne de combat is quite far from renaissance fencing, it's biomechanics are really different. The old methods, like Leboucher are more like sword fencing. Can you post some video about how you train?

    You can go in different direction. For la canne de combat you can use a light stick with a length of 97 cm and weight less than 150 gram. For la canne, the old style, I prefer a stronger stick. For Vigny, you can use also a heavier stick, like this: http://www.woodenswords.com/WMA/lacanne_stick.htm

    http://www.woodenswords.com/WMA/lacanne_stick.htm if you want to buy one ready-made. A number of people make their own for Bartitsu practice - a 36" long rattan stick tipped with a tough rubber ball or substantial rubber "stopper" works for most training and sparring/fencing purposes.
