Bruce Bao - Long Pole - African Sapele/Sapelli Mahogany

This long pole is made from African Sapele - a strong and straight wood for poles that is more dense and harder than pure Mahogany.

These poles were longer, but we had them cut down 11 inches to be 93 inches (236 cm) so that they could be shipped for a normal price (and not incur the $240+ max shipping charge for long items). They do cost slightly more due to this, but now ship for FREE! (to the USA). If you are looking for a good pole, and can train with a shorter pole, then this is a great option.

Wood:
This long pole is made of African Sapele/Sapelli/Sapeli. The Scientific name is Entandrophragma cylindricum. Janka Hardness: 1,410 lbf (6,280 N). Crushing Strength: 8,750 lbf/in2. Sapelli is a very popular African redwood often called Sapelli Mahogany (it is in the same family as Mahogany). Sapelli is harder and denser than Mahogany.

Specifications:
Length: 2.36 m // 93 Inches
Weight : Approx 2 - 2.2 Kg ~ 4-5 lbs (varies with each pole).
Diameter: 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) at handle gradually tapered to the tip. These measurements are approximate.

Features/Notes:
- This pole is varnished with a clear coat.
- This pole was professionally dried to maintain correct moisture and minimize cracking.
- This pole is hand-crafted.
- The wood for this pole was legally harvested.

Suitability:
This pole is great for exercises, form work, partner pole work, work with swords, etc.

Scuffs/Marks/Blemishes:
Many of the poles have minors scuffs, marks or cosmetic blemishes. This is to be expected. Obviously, we would prefer to receive these poles in perfect condition from the maker, but it never happens. So just be forewarned if you expect perfection. It shouldn't be a big deal because as soon as you start using the pole for training it will get scuffed up anyway.
