I picked up this Bo, because of the portability of the two piece design. It makes it a lot easier to throw in the back seat of the car. I ordered the 5 1/2 foot size and I'm very happy with it. The quality exceeded my expectations. To start the center of gravity is less than 1/2 inch from the exact center of the Bo. That is pretty amazing for a two piece Bo. Also, the screw together attachment is quite long (about 1 3/4 inches). Much longer than you find in something like a pool cue and that gives me a little more confidence in the strength of the connection. The Bo is also somewhat light and I find that helpful, since I'm just starting training and don't have much wrist strength yet. It is also very straight. Oh, the 5 1/2 foot size almost fits in a padded pool cue case, which makes it nice for protecting it during transport. The only part that sticks out the top of a standard (34") pool cue case are the threads of the connector. So, I'm pretty sure if you get the 5 foot version it would fit completely in a pool cue case. Bottom line is I really like this Bo and would recommend it for anyone that needs an exhibition Bo that won't be taking serious impacts.
