The most important factors of a great pair of fire nunchaku are stick length, grip, heat dissipation, and cord material.
Sticks and Grip
The 12" sticks, made from aerospace grade 7075 aluminum, allow a large, comfortable range of Nunchaku tech and martial movements. The 3/4" diameter fits comfortably in the hand, and is covered with a foam rubber grip for comfortable control and soft impact against the body.
Each handle has a 2” wick on the end, providing a 3:30 minute burn time with “white gas” / Coleman’s Liquid Camp Fuel.
Minimizing Exposed Metal
Most severe equipment burns come from searing-hot exposed metal, not from the wicks. To minimize exposed metal, the wicks are attached with recessed rivets (less exposed metal than screws and no need for retightening).
The main failure points for Nunchaku are the ball bearings--dirt inside the bearings coupled with jerking motions can sometimes cause them to break. Instead, we use our Dragon Rope. This rope is more comfortable against the hand and provides far better control than chain. In addition, it has excellent abrasion resistance, heat resistance, and is strong enough to lift 5,500 lbs, making it more than strong enough for even your most powerful strikes. The cord is 5" long.
