For what purposes are you using a suburito? To strengthen your upper body? To swing something that more resembles the weight and balance of a shinken? To impress women?
impress women?? I don't know which woman can be impressed by whacking your suburito to a rubber tyre the result won't make your body muscle-shaped though.

I just want to practice my shomen to be more focused, well maybe try the swing closest to shinken would also be fine.
It may have been a sound idea at the time, that i should practice with something heavier so that when i do the real thing it would be light. But it sure kills your fingers in the process.
it's all in the grip, abas-san....
