Phenolic is a thermosetting resin that is reinforced with fabric to make it essentially indestructible. Now, Phenolic Kali sticks have been tried before, and there's a reason why they haven't taken off... yet.
While the material hardness and durability is a major plus, the minus is the material's inability to absorb shock. We fixed this issue by engineering groove that allows for silicon inlay to be placed on the handle that absorbs shock while providing exceptional grip. These are heavier than your traditional rattan sticks, and we do not recommend them for sparring as they may cause knuckles to explode.

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!
