Customer Question of the White Wax Tapered Bo

Few questions about the staff

Hello, I am 13, have practiced for a while, and am looking to preform.
1. Would Tapered make it easier to balance with or easier to twirl?
2. Is still strong enough to spar with?
3. Difference between youth and adult
4. What is the bend amount with a solid swing?
5. Is it heavy enough for strength training or should I go heavier.
6. I am currently 5' but I am SURE I will grow by the time of my tournament

Hey Austin. It's great to see you doing some research and trying to get the best bo for you. I'll try to help with some answers:

1. Tapered has a more centered balance point, which makes it a little easier to do quick spins.
2. The adult is still strong enough to spar with, but youth tends to be a little more fragile.
3. The youth has a thinner diameter (width).
4. It will bend slightly, but not nearly as much as bamboo.
5. This won't provide much in the way of strength training. This bo would be better suited to that: wp-bo-03, although it's not as fast.
6. I think you still have to go with the 5 foot length, unless you are expecting a substantial growth spurt.
