Solid Bo. Very strong. No warping. Straight as an arrow. I purchased the 6 foot model. It'll deal and receive a lot of damage. The weight is great for training. There are areas on my bo where they had patched it with wood filler, though. The patches aren't pretty, but I didn't buy it for looks. There was some rough areas on the surface, as well. A little bit of sand paper should remedy the course edges. Hopefully, the areas with wood filler are shallow, and wont affect the bo's integrity. For the price, it's an awesome bo.
