I use the coldsteel poly sticks only to practice my twirling. They're Heavy as & have inertia once I get going. Really helped my hands develope muscle memory. However my usual sticks are temagong.

A.R.N.I.S. Tendencia has always use what arnistadors from almost the beginning; Rattan! I would not let any of my students use anything else nor would S.Master Sam. I could give you my opinion and of course Supreme Master Sam Tendencia's opinion. I rather make you a stick and see if there's a differants! We would love to becoming your school's and students rattan supplier. We do custom set of three to signals. From 20" to 40" or so. Our rattan sticks are guaranteed not to brake (or I will replace it). They can be crushed but not broken. The stick you get from blood sport does not look like it's been tempered correctly. (That is my opinion of what I can see of your video).

I think they're both good. The polypropylene (cold steel) ones last a lot longer, but they're definitely heavier. I'd really recommend everyone try a pair of them.

Check out my original review on the cold steel ones:
