I have trained arnis in the Philippines with grandmaster CANETE even though I loved training with rattan I Ordered 2 sets one for myself and one for my 8 yr old daughter. So I can start training with her. Great quality and feel.
Budo Brothers NEVER FAILS!! AND these are not only incredibly well built, but light, and beautiful that works for balintawak AND cosplay. Referred to by one of my closest Arnis brothers and sisters and can't WAIT to spread the word!!!
These sticks are amazing to swing because they are weighted so much different then rattan sticks. You may have issues using them in stick to stick training because they wreck regular Kali sticks

Very sturdy. Arrived quickly from Montana and I’m in OH. Terrific materials and can’t wait to use them.
I love my new phenoletic Serada sticks. They are sleek and awesome. The carrying bag is also cool!
Ordered a pair early this year and mmediately loved them. Nice balance, perfect weight, and very durable. A couple of my friends liked them too. So I bought them each a pair for Christmas! Thanks!

These black beauties are hard, yet much lighter than I anticipated, with a smooth swing/spin. The bag is sturdy and lined with the repeating Budo Brothers logo. The logo head band/neck gaiter was a nice little surprise extra. Definitely looking forward to ordering more from Budo Brothers.
Great weight, solid grip, awesome carry bag
Exceptional Quality, these sticks are a must have for any Escrima practitioner
These serrada sticks are next level, polished and pretty AF! I have been practicing for quite a while with bamboo and to switch over to phenolic is an experience and a half, though a bit heavier they are perfectly weighted and the feel is on point. This company is on point support them!
Excellent workmanship, loved them so much I got another set for my son.
I was a little surprised at the size however the handles feel good in my hands and they have enough of a weight to them to provide feedback as I'm flowing. Definitely a great choice for someone like me that prefers to be up close.
Awesome beyond what I expected!
I practice modern arnis mostly, these sticks a bit shorter than what Im used to but are awesome thank you
Awesome. Love them.
These Phenolic Serrada Sticks are amazing!! The material is of the upmost quality and the grip is great. These sticks absorb impact very well they are light and I would not want to be the person receiving the strike. These are definitely not sparring sticks these are perfect for self-practice and to use against an attacker, I still use my rattan sticks to practice with a partner as the Phenolic Serrada Sticks hurt if you hit your practice partner while practicing. They will not like you very much. Definitely a solid pair of sticks. To me they are worth the buy since I have not had or seen a pair like these ever.
Angel Cabales was my father’s Serrada Instructor and also trained me when I was little up to when I was a teenager. Your version of his Escrima Sticks are phenomenal!
Just received my Budo Brothers Phenolic Serrada Escrima Sticks. I can honestly say that these are probably the best sticks I’ve ever used. They are the equivalent of a finely built 1911 custom pistol. They are so well balanced & they pack a quite the punch. 5 star design and 5 star quality. #BudoBrothers #Escrimasticks
I love the sleek look of these phenolic sticks! I’ve been training with them for the past 3/4 times and they feel great in my hands. They are shorter then the standard ones, but very tough! Love the black color and the discrete logo.
Absolutely love these sticks and I'm again impressed beyond expectation in phenolic. The weight and balance is excellent and the shock absorption is good. Wonderfully produced carry bag to accompany them. Strong "Nightwing" vibe with these sticks. They hit so hard and it doesn't feel like they'll ever quit. Phenolic hanbo next when back in stock.
Better than expected. Well balanced and quality material. Never disappointed when it comes to budo brothers.
Love the result of the manufacturing process. I almost dread using these against a foe.
These sticks are SO cool! When I heard how they were made with cloth I never imagined you’d be able to see the fibers, yet still have a lightweight, glass-smooth version of a lead pipe for whacking intruders or a training pell. They have very little vibration conduction unless you’re whacking something immobile like a telephone pole, otherwise these space-age sticks feel like something security guards on prison ships in deep orbit would use to corral the universes’ scurviest thugs; without causing undo wrist aggrivation.
These are great sticks. They are the perfect length for my double stick techniques and form, which utilizes a shorter stick length than the Filipino arts. I'll definitely be buying more in the near future.
I own both the Serrada sticks as well as the Escrima sticks. Both indestructible for the most part with a great feel in the hand. The rubber handles and the cases are super high quality that is typically not seen in martial arts equipment. I would definitely recommend. I bought the Serrada sticks for portability on trips but they are super fun to use. Definitely not sparring sticks though as they are heavy and solid enough to be actual weapons.
These are very nice and looking forward to having a great work out with them. Nice carrying case easy to travel with them. Happy and thank you for a great pair of sticks! Ivan
Great quality and feels great!
They came to me just as advertised. Great sticks.
I was surprised by the weight but they are well balanced and the added grips make them comfortable.
These sticks feel very fast despite their heft. This must be due to their shorter length. They're excellent.
These things are even better than they tell you. Solid in the hand, just the correct amount of firm and supple, and just smooth to swing.
Very high quality practice sticks; I haven’t had much opportunity to really train with them but they are definitely built very tough. I took a few swings on a wave master and I would not want to be on the receiving end of these!!!
These PHENOLIC SERRADA STICKS are awesome. I bought them for me but my daughter wanted them for her form competitions. When more are available i will be picking some up again along with the Kali Sticks. Great product.
Stick are awesome - light and feel great in the hands.
The Shorter sticks,Are better To train in small areas,I’m glad I bought both sizes

Solid and a great weight that allows you to train technique with power!
Snap...inevitable this is art
Excellent experience with your company. We had a small glitch in the process of receiving my product. Eric was exceptional in following up, making sure I was informed as your company worked through the issue of concern, and most importantly did everything in his power to make sure my needs were met. He even went so far as to provide me with a complimentary gift, (which was not necessary or requested) to make sure I was compensated for the inconvenience. This type of service is rare in today's marketplace. Because of the service that was provided to me, your company will always have my business and I look forward to supporting your organization in the future and will tell others to support you also! With respect, Dr. Aquil Basheer
Beautifully crafted, absolutely stunning product. And, bonus, the shorter length of the serrrada sticks helps me not to accidentally clip my very low ceilings when I’m running through the various strikes.
Alright, Folks! I'm going to tell you, these Phenolic Fabric Resin Serradas Truly are Bad@§§!! No Exaggeration! The weight, the balance, the durability are all top shelf! They're not too light, nor too heavy! I love the silicone handle sleeves! They give you a great grip! The case they come in is specially made for the Phenolic sticks as well. It's made of the same canvas and fabrics that the HoodGi is constructed of! I'm going to tell you right now, however. If you're going to drill and train with them, make sure your partner has some as well, or at least has something also as strong, otherwise you're just going to break his traditional rattan sticks!! ~Haha!! I intend to get the Phenolic Kali Sticks next! I'm also going to be getting multiple sets of all of these as time goes by!
These sticks make me feel like Nightwing from the Batman comics! My nocturnal vigilante runs have been steadily successful. Jk! The quality of the sticks are superb. They are not too light, not too heavy for me. The shorter length also makes it easier to store in a backpack or gym bag. The silicone handle sleeves give you a great grip. I was also surprised by the case it arrived in. It looks like the same material as the Hood Gi. This is a giant step up from the cheap nylon cases and brittle rattan sticks I'm used to purchasing. If you're an FMA practitioner or martial artist in general, these sticks are a must have. I might by a second pair in the future.
Definitely worth it. These sticks are amazing!
These are impressive. Lightweight, tough, and came with a nice case. Can’t wait to best some shit up!
I bought the 21's and the shipping was super god dam quick ,These sticks are beautiful ... Infact I didn't even want to use them they looked so good but that changed once I started swinging them. The rubberized grip is just a fantastic touch. Good job guys keep pushing out training products like this your taking the lead so far. I just wish you didn't sell out of the 29's I would of bought those as well
I love it. It's exactly what I wanted. It will be lots of fun to play with. :)
These really are perfect in so many ways...easy to carry around...THOUGH I would like to see the carrying bag be a little more versatile....as in the shoulder strap really doesn't do the bag justice....what would it be like to make a leg strap at the bottom...have the top flap be more like a belt loop?
First off, the sticks are great. They look beautiful, feel very nice in use, balanced, and I love the diameter. You can feel the material density, but they don’t feel sluggish while in motion and during transitions. Overall, they’ve exceeded my expectations, and I’ll be looking to acquire the longer versions when I can afford them. My only suggestions, and this is only my preference, is to shorten the length of the rubberized grips, being short sticks. That said, I am accustomed to holding my sticks with approximately a two finger length at the butt end of the weapon, for optimal use of leverage, full range, and also short range techniques. So in my specific case the grip is slightly long. The other thing, being a woodworker, is the finish at the ends of the sticks are a bit raw. I assume the sticks are turned on a lathe, the remaining slight tapered recess being from the lathe clamps? I would personally be inclined to surface the ends, then bevel the edges. But, that’s mostly an aesthetic issue. Though, in use, there is a subtle difference when using a stick that is more flat at the tip end. Aside from these minor preferences, I think you guys have produced a unique, effective, and super useful product that professional martial artists can use without the worry of them failing. Great job, dudes! -Michael
Great product! I will buy another set.
Thank you, very pleased with the looks+quality and handcrafted bag is rugged and sleek
Lightweight but really durable! A joy to wield them!
Love these serrada sticks. So far indestructible and compact size makes them perfect for carry. Thanks Budo brothers for putting so much thought into these and for the great customer service.
As you can see I also picked up the Kali sticks. The serrada sticks are just as bada** and comes with the dopest carry bag. If you’re already training in Kali or any other stick-based martial art, you HAVE to get these. If you’re not, get them anyways and you WILL want to train.
