Easy to adjust weight April 18, 2014
Reviewer: Anna from Uppsala, Sweden  
Love this, and here's why. Perhaps someone else is looking for the same:

I'm a jodan player who was searching for a shinai I could use indoors to practice karate (one hand) cuts. Problem is, these kinds of suburi shinai are way too heavy for me. Being a lady for whom shinai regulations are 440 g, 660 g are too much to do repeated katate air cuts with, without risking long term injuries to elbow and wrists.

I bought this suburi shinai in the hopes that I could somehow alter the weight to my needs. Turns out it was easy! It's built like an ordinary shinai, with a heavy metal tip, of the same kind every shinai has a rubber tip under the sakigawa (top leather piece). It was simply for me to open up and remove the metal inlay without fuss.

Without the extra metal tip, this shinai for me weigh 540 g. Considering I usually play jodan with 440 g, this is absolutely perfect!

Great Suburito January 26, 2014
Reviewer: Dan McLean from Portland, OR United States  
If you're the type of person who likes to spend a lot of time in front of a computer, get one of these. Keep it next to your desk and you can get suburi in during those moments of down-time while waiting for your thing to download or your dungeon queue to pop!

Thank you E-bogu! January 8, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from San Diego, CA  
I have the one handed suburi shinai that served me well and always thought how better it would be if they had the two-handed version. The shinai arrived yesterday and it did not disappoint. Now I can do two handed suburi in my room without poking a whole in the ceiling! Thanks E-bogu!
