Re: Favorite woods

I really want to like hickory, but personally I'm not a fan of how light hickory is, or how easily dented it becomes. Yes, the fact that it dents slightly means it isn't brittle and is quite strong overall, but I prefer the heavy, hard solidness of white oak personally.

But in the end, I just consider this to be a different variant of "gadget fetishism" and use whatever weapon that will let me train.
