My Bo staff that I ordered on April 1st and today in my class (this is the first time I used it) I simply dropped it and a large piece broke in the middle. I have not fought with it at all. What I'm wondering is if this is actually expected from such a simple problem.

Hi Elena. That actually isn't typical. Sometimes these pieces of woods have hidden knots or weak lines that aren't discovered during production.

I believe we could replace that item for you, since it was a premature break by no fault of your own. Please reach out to our customer service line and tell them your situation -

Hey, i Bought this item a while back, prolly about Sept 2nd of 2013. and hadnt used it until today. i was just spinning it getting some speed going and i dropped it on the ground and it snapped instantly. It wasnt on concrete or anything hard like that. It may have been a manufacturer make defect, which happens, but i cant really say what it was exactly. But since it did snap so easily i cant recommend it. Some feed back on what it could've been would be appreciated.

Hi Kami. Sorry to hear there might have been a crack or weak point in your bo. Unfortunately you bought the item awhile ago so we can't arrange for a replacement piece. Apologies and we will replace any future pieces that seem to under-perform.

6' Tapered Staff?

The description of this item says 6' is available but there is no 6' in the drop down. Is there a 6' tapered staff anywhere on this site?

what is the weight of the bo

Was this helpful? (0) (0)
We don't have an exact weight for akl as that can vary slightly piece to piece (natural wood bo's are like that). However I can tell you it is a bo with good heft and durability, better for traditional use than for tricking.

I need a strong lightweight and skinny diameter bo staff. I will need this in demonstrations. Is this the right choice for me or not. If not please give me a new bo staff to review.

Badly Warped Bo

This Bo arrived so badly warped that I can not use it. It bends out over 2 inches in the middle. I want a new straight one. I can send pictures.

Hmm, this is rare but unfortunate when it happens. Sometimes the manufacturer can't control these bends that occur over time (it's the nature of the wood).

Please reach out to us at csupport@karatedepot.com so we can arrange a replacement.

Best Choice?

I am looking for a bo, that can be used in both kata and training. Sturdy and strong are a must! In class I prefer using the tapered style, but if this style is not going to hold up I am open to straight. Opinions and Recommendations?

I would recommend the tapered hardwood style for you: wp-bo-04. It's reliable and durable but still manageable in weight.

Sturdy and Graceful

I am well pleased with this red oak tapered bo, the six foot long bo. It's got a good heft to it, solid and strong, yet not heavy. It's perfect for me, and well worth the price. Good buy!

Difference between tapered and non tapered?

I am looking to purchase a red oak bo staff such as this one but I was wondering what the difference is between the tpered bo and the non tapered bo. A little help please?

Hey Vanessa. We've created a video that might help answer your question - http://www.karatedepot.com/video-4-How-to-Size-and-Select-a-Bo.html. Check it out!

In general, the tapered bo have a more centralized pivot point which allows them to spin a little easier. However the tradeoff of less material on the end makes for a bo that is a bit more susceptible to breaking as well as a slight loss in centrifugal power.

is this a full contact bo?

Yes this bo can take good contact, although the taper does make it a bit more vulnerable than the straight red oak.

How much flex does the Bo have?
by: bomaster

It's got a little flex, but red oak is a fairly sturdy wood. Not nearly as flexible as rattan.

This bo has a diameter of 1 1/8" in the center and it tapers down to about 1" on the edges.

This bo is strong, light, and easy to control. I thought the glossy material that makes it smooth, but I was wrong.

P.S., Get it in 6 ft. It's much better than 5 ft.
