At first I was wondering about the price. But after getting these beautiful sticks and case I am a firm believer. Budo Brothers makes and sells what can only be described as the highest quality items. The shipping and communication was above top knotch. My highest recommendation. Don’t hesitate to get these. I have already ordered the Serrada sticks!!
Bought these sticks to have a nice pair, for "showing off". DID NOT DISAPOINT!! not as heavy as they might seem, easily maneuverable, STURDY! These are well presented in a very nice case. (And I got a nice bandanna too). These are more for moderate to advanced trained, in my opinion. So if you're looking for a good pair of sticks, stop here! Also, I gotta say, the operations are tight here. I ordered a little after 3:30, around 4:15, (same day,) I get the email saying, "sticks have been shipped" delivery was close in time. I have only praise for this company.
Excellent products and services.
I have many many more Budo Brothers gear to purchase. Yes it’s that good!
The stix feel like satin. I wish there were diameter size options. I like them. The length is perfect. The carry bag is elegant and sophisticated. Overall quality would be “S” tier, as in this product exudes a Royal feel. The swing is light and solid. The impact is comfortable, might be more comfortable than a rattan stick. The “Lambo” of escrima. A nice addition to my synthetic collection.
Awesome, awesome weapons!!
This sticks are something else! Very solid with low vibration when doing heavy stroking. They are also quite a bit heavier than my traditional sticks. If I had any complaint, they are a bit thin which wouldn’t be an issue if they weren’t as slick in my hands. Having said that, I’m using them for conditioning not direct sparing so I’m enjoying them a lot
Amazing weight. Great for hand and wrist strengthening. Extremely durable and well balanced. Looking forward to working my strikes and blocks with these sticks.
These look good and feel great in my hands. Really good for training. I love them.
Love these Kali sticks. Had an old pair of rattan sticks and these obliterated them. Have a cold steel Kali stick, these feel more comfortable in the hand (not quite as thick in diameter) but definitely as durable. New favorites. The gi material carry bag is awesome. Loved these so much bought a pair as a retirement present for a training partner.
They are great sticks no vibrations and solid without being heavy
Excellent workmanship. Has the look of display only, but totally functional at every aspect. I'm buying the 1/4 staff next. Love your Kali sticks and professional looking case.
Honestly, I didn’t expect them to be cooler in person. The kali sticks are a bit of a challenge with the weight, but it feels great nonetheless holding them. Thinking about picking up the foam sticks to better protect my hands though lol!
The kali sticks are a great addition to my growing collection of phenolic weapons from Budo Bros! While I prefer the serrada sticks for increased speed the kali sticks give you increased range even though the weight difference is noticeable. I can't wait to see what additional phenolic products Budo Bros. come up with--as I have their hando and kubaton as well!
Good weight and feel. Love these.
Packaged was delivered with a lot of communication and statuses. The actual product is well-made and very beautiful. It feels very sturdy and great in my hands.
First time using the sticks and they felt amazing! Took them to sparring at my local HEMA club to see how they faired against lighter wood sticks. The difference in weight was not an issue at all and I was very pleased with how they performed. The material is extremely durable and the grips helped a ton to lessen the shock of impacts. Overall, a fantastic product.
Nice pair of Escrima sticks, very durable and strong
This is a great product, not only for kali fans but also for those who (like me) train with a tombo for karate. While they are a bit thinner and longer, they work great and feel really good in the hand. The included carry bag is also high quality and a perfect fit for both sticks. A couple of points to note - first these are definitely heavier than standard rattan sticks. So care should be taken when using them in the air and not striking as they may cause some wrist strain. The second note that that the inlay is awesome at absorbing shock, however it is also very smooth and may slip a bit when wet (i.e. sweaty ;) ). As I say though - this is a great product and I have no hesitation recommending them.
Exquisite set. Shock absorbent, lightweight, and indestructible are the first words that come to mind. If your looking to level up your training, look no further, and pick up your set of phenolic Kali Sticks from my friends at BudoBrothers. Make sure to sign up as a VIP on the website for exclusive news!
My only regret is not picking up more. These sticks are definitely quality, and they're a joy to use. The material definitely chews through others, so you'll need to make sure your training partner is wielding a pair as well.
Love this company!!! The staff are amazing and the products are excellent. Thank you so much, I will continue to do business with this company. Budo brothers rocks the house!
I love these sticks! More dopeness for the collection!

Excellent training and protective sticks. Way overpriced but glad I have them.
BOOM BOOM BANG If you banging with these bad boys through the air or against an object you feel their power and the passion they are built from. Even if they are thin their weight and stability crashes everything standing in your way. The special grip allows you to throw them in your aim without fearing to loose them. A very nice training tool to increase your hitting power, to adapt your biomechanics to such powerful hits and to create authentic proprioceptive musculoskeletal reactions of stick movements. Enjoy them because they are really worth it. BADA BOOM BOOM BANG
Great Quality product
The item is better then I expected. I trained in the past with second hand rattan escrima sticks. These are a big step up. Solid feel and good weight. No issues with shipping.
just as advertised. Durable, shock resistant, look and feel awesome. I recommend purchasing these whenever available.
These sticks are amazing. The look and feel is beyond description. They hit like a truck and I dont have to worry about what I am hitting. Great job Budo Brothers
Really enjoying these sticks, so much so I did a video on my Youtube page if you guys wanna see them in action. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3AmPWGQYZc Thx Budo Brothers.
Love the feel and balance of these sticks I can’t put them down. The swing is amazing I’m kind of afraid they have ruined me for my other sticks

These are everything that I would want in a pair of kali sticks. They're constructed well with very durable material, the grips are comfortable, and they look great! The custom bag to carry them is sharp looking and the textured material combined with that sweet Budo Brothers patter is put together with the same care and thought as the sticks. I've already recommended them to several friends. I'd say these will probably be the last pair I'd buy... but...the likelihood of me buy another pair of these ones either for myself or as a gift, is pretty high and worth every penny.
Quick shipment. Arrived here in Europe in days with Zero!!! Hassle or customs issues. Kali Sticks are simply perfect
Ordering and tracking product and delivery was fast and expedient. Communication was thorough and I was informed on the process in every step of the way. I will again order from Budo Bros.

Love these had to support you guys man.
I really like it! Very well made!
Love these! Great weight to build wrist strength and they look amazing!
I love the quality and attention to detail of Budo Brothers' martial arts equipment, their seminars are phenomenal, with absolute experts who really make a difference to one's practice. And last of all, but perhaps most importantly, these guys are good human beings. I like their ethos and what they are doing in the community. Best to you!
Definitely high quality and very well made.
Absolutely love these! I’ve started watching a few of the training videos offered. It’s an interesting transition from sword fighting or sparing that I’m more accustomed to, but I’m really enjoying it. On a side note, they sent me a balaclava for free with the purchase as well. I’m glad I stumbled across the Budo Brothers
Great quality. Great product line. I have purchased several items from the site and love them all. Glad to see companies putting quality first and representing FMA tools well. - Guru Snake Blocker
These Phenolic Kali sticks are awesome! When I train, we bang hard and so far these ticks not only flow smoothly, but I splintered my friends rattan stick. The grip is good, they feel good while striking and free-styling sinawali and practice on my Bob dummy. Deceptively light and sturdy.
Alright, Folks! I'm going to tell you, these Phenolic Fabric Resin Kali Sticks 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 now have both these Kali Phenolic Resin Sticks and the Serrada Phenolic Resin Sticks! And I intend to get multiple sets of these Kali Sticks as time goes by!
Stick are awesome - light and feel great in the hands.
Love these Kali sticks!! I'm new to Kali and am super happy with the quality and feel of these!!
Finish is excellent. The non-slip grips cushion well and feel positive in the hands. Definitely a plus with the unforgiving phenolics. The carrying case is beautiful and well constructed. Absolutely love them!
I’d buy them again and or recommend them
Beautiful sticks and case. Sticks are well balanced and have some heft to them. Appreciate you throwing in the bandana. After training with them, I wonder how they would feel if they were maybe 30-32 inches long and 1 inch or so in diameter? I might be induced to buy another pair that was slightly bigger. You know, options. Anyway, awesome product, and pleasure doing business with you guys.
Love the product! The case looks super cool
Amazing product. Very satisfied with the quality and design. I would definitely recommend these kali sticks.
Very light in hand, they are quick and maneuverable, and they feel like they are tough enough to stop a bullet!
Love the weight. Love the feel. Quality work.
Feel amazing the weight and the grips
I have similar styles of these type of sticks and this brand and pair is awesome. Light, strong, great feel, and durable!
When you wake up- roll out of bed and instantly feel like a Super Hero picking these indestructible Kali Sticks up! You begin your day with something to look forward to! Not only do I have peace of mind with the quality of the product- but also with the training behind them!
Incredible! I love the sticks!
Love the feel and quality. I was hesitant to buy these but they are definitely worth it.
Nice and no nonsense - a little thinner than typical rattan sticks and heavier. The divider in the carrying case is a nice touch. So looking forward to not wasting time using hockey tape to make my sticks last... Well done guys :)
Very nicely made sticks. Great heft and length. Would have liked the gauge slightly larger as I am used to practicing with thicker rattan sticks.
Great product, looking forward to abusing them!
The kali sticks are incredible, a great natural flow. The distal end of the sticks feel like there is a slightly heavier component that allows the kali sticks to have and effortless momentum .
Sorry I don’t have any pics yet. But using these while going through the Pakamut training has been great. Definitely enjoy them along with the rattan sticks I already have.
Lightweight but with enough heft for excellent control and impact.
Very well made, and they handle beautifully. They arrived quickly, too!
I just received my order and I was not expecting such a high quality case, that was a bonus, looks like it will last quite some time. I really like the weight and feel of the escrima sticks too. I am looking forward to getting feedback from my Filipino instructor at the next training seminar.
I’m loving these. The weight is perfect for me, and they feel pretty substantial. Beautifully crafted.
Great Quality and perfect weight
Wow!!! These sticks are damn sexy. Very tough, and not that heavy. The carrying case is very heavy duty and stylish. Took only 6 days to get to me in Canada . Budo brothers always impress. Keep pumping out the great products boys.
Love the feel and look of these sticks! Very classy looking and dense that you know it can take a beating, or dish it out! The case that comes with the sticks are also awesome and durable.
The Kali sticks are the real deal. So dope! They feel good in the hand with the material they use for the grip and they are hefty and will do damage if ever necessary. They feel super solid! They absolutely feel like these will be the last Kali sticks you’ll ever need. Also, the carrying case/bag they come in...dee to the oh pee ee. Get ‘em!
