4 of 5 Pretty Nice, Without a Daobt March 20, 2022
Reviewer: Sean Hamill from Pilot Point, TX  
Though I am an amateur to martial arts, I really like using this trainer, I plan on using it with a teng pai.
I've never handled a steel dao before, but I do feel the trainer is quite tip heavy, considering it's not a very broad dao. Maybe it's beneficial to train with a bit more heft in the blade? I don't know.
I had a couple of problems with the hilt.
1. The paracord grip is very rough on bare hands. It would be a lot nicer to have a grip like that on the jian trainer instead.
2. The notches for the disc guard protrude underneath it and those edges are uncomfortable. The disc has a very tight, secure fit, and those notches are unnecessary. I just cut them off to make it more bearable to hold.

4 of 5 Dao Saber with Guard June 1, 2020
Reviewer: Frank Kyle from FRANKLIN, OH United States  
I feel for the price they are good.  However the weighting is tip heavy, which can strain the forearms more than a properly weighted blade.  So take care in training.  I have not had a chance to see how the endurance of the blade holds up when light contact is made.  But that is coming.

4 of 5 Great Dao, only problem is POB and hilt width December 10, 2019
Reviewer: James Lee from Los Angeles, CA United States  
This Dao is one of the coolest ones out there in my opinion, love the feel but several improvements can be made with the following:
-Grip (hilt) Size; its a bit too small for my liking (i have medium sized hands)
-The POB (point of balance) the point of balance is WAY too far out, most Dao's were usually 7-8 inches away from the guard, not this dao which is 9 Inches

Thats all I have to say in regards to the improvements this Dao could have with maybe future designs, otherwise I suggest giving this a buy! way better than the other daos out there I would say
