A solid and reliable training tool November 7, 2016
Reviewer: Matthew Sennett from Bel Air, MD United States  
I use these in my beginner longsword classes and they work extremely well.  Not as whippy as the rawlings and far more durable.

Comparing the synthetics November 7, 2016
Reviewer: George Hernandez from Chicago, IL United States  
I've been doing HEMA since 2002, but my wife and kids are just getting into longsword, so I had each of them pick their own syntetic longsword. By luck they happened to pick all 4 variants! I'll do 1 review for the Rawlings and another review for the 3 Pentti.

The Pentti swords are harder and stiffer than the Rawlings. My son chose the Pentti 50", my eldest chose the Pentti feder, and my wife chose the Pentii 47.5". They are all sturdy and have good balance. Choosing between the 3 is entirely a matter of personal preference. The difference in length seemed moot to me. The grip wrap is firm. I ended up ordering the Pentti feder for myself to match my steel feder, an Albion Meyer.

A Good Waster July 28, 2016
Reviewer: Jacob from Spring, TX United States  
Purpleheart's feder-styled waster is a great training tool for longsword. While steel is ideal, these wasters are great lower-price options for budgets or for getting people into contact training earlier with less required protective equipment. The wasters have a good balance and feel to them, so they just feel good in the hand and when making strikes. The flexibility is both a pro and a con. It makes thrusts more safe, but the blade can wobble a bit too much when parried, but I feel that it's necessary for the material and safety. The durability has been great. My only real problem with the sword comes from it's ability to take a set bend. I give this waster a 4/5 for its handling, durability, and affordability. I don't think the score should be lowered much because of the limitations of the material in the case of this waster. It is stiff enough to not flop around and for binding. Based on this waster, I would buy more wasters from Purpleheart.

Awesome! July 19, 2016
Reviewer: Billie  
I purchased the pink and black wrap for the grip, and it's just lovely!  We have been using these for about six months and they have held up to everything.  Don't leave them in a hot car in the summer though... They are prone to bending.  (But you can bend them back!). Highly recommended.
