    holy crap, i'm pretty sure that's where we sourced the rattan for a bunch of 8ft poles for my kung fu school.

    i guess i can start price gouging when i sell my old ones off!

    Ordered 25$ worth of 48inch sticks. Great deal they'd have to be complete **** to not be worth $5 a stick. Thanks for posting!

    These guys have always had great quality. They will be missed. I have a line on a supplier from Indonesia but I would have to order 250 sticks. I have all the equipment to steam, straighten, sand and harden, but I am just not sure if I want to go into the stick business.
