Training Jo
The product meets all of the requirement. I only wish it wasn't nearly one inch thick in diameter. A jo needs to have a smaller circumference.

More Then a Simple Trainer
Cold Steel's line of training weapons has yet to let me down and this training staff actually exceeded my expectations. I purchased it mostly as a walking staff for outdoor wood walks or daily jaunts around my neighborhood to keep me in shape with the secondary purpose of self defense. Like all of the CS trainers, it is made out of super tough polypropylene, so it won't crack, swell or shrink like wood and is completely water proof, a big concern where I live thanks to rain and snow and is nearly unbreakable. It has a really neat wood grain pattern cast into it that gives good grip along with it's octagonal cross section. At 54" in length, it has plenty of reach and leverage but not overly long. My only "complaint" is the weight, which is about almost double compared to most woods staffs. But if you want to build up your upper body strength and want something that will put a serious smack on a feral dog or bad guy without worrying about breakage, this is the one to get and worth the money. One simple modification I did to this staff was the installation of a rubber chair cap I purchased for 60 cents at a local hard wear store. Although they didn't have a 1.5" dia. cap, I was able to use a 1.25 dia. one by soaking it in boiling water for a couple of minutes while letting the end of the staff soak in a bucket of ice for the same amount of time. This process worked like a charm and it would take an incredible amount of work to remove it.

Almost perfect
Since I have to use a cane as a result of an accident, I wanted a cane /staff that didn't have "victim" written all over it.. Street thugs love that. My cane collection has grown considerably-mostly with Cold Steel items. Unfortunately, only the new Ten Shun cane has a traction device. I brought this to Cold Steel's attention. I can usually find something that will work, but it detracts from the overall appearance of "not a victim" that I'm looking for.
