Bruce Bao - Long Pole - Iron Wood

IMPORTANT: The poles in the pictures are a sample of IronWood poles that we deem "straight". They are a good example of the quality you can expect, and you can see that each has been numbered so you can compare the one you receive to these pictures. (The darker red ones are the ones currently being sold). Please keep in mind that wood is wood and can warp when it changes environments. These pictures are how your pole will look before shipping. Also, please note that hairline checking is common in these poles, and is not a cause for concern.

Trees are reported to grow upwards of 45m in height, with trunks reaching 120cm in diameter or more. Heavy Hopea is commonly used in boat building and marine construction, domestic and commercial flooring, decking, heavy construction, joinery, mine timbers, wharf construction, building and construction, handles and sporting goods.

Weight: HEAVY on average a pole is 6.6 - 7.7 lbs (3.0 - 3.5 kgs), but it does fluctuate some based on density.

Features/Notes:
- This pole is Varnished for maximum protection.
- 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.
- The wood resistant to rot.

Suitability:
This pole is great for exercises (heavy), form work, partner pole work, work with swords, etc. This is not really suitable for smash training.

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.
