5 of 5 Fantastic Indoor and In-Range Solution April 2, 2020
Reviewer: Greg Spyridis  
I bought this trainer for two reasons. First, because I wanted to swing a longsword in doors. But, second--and actually more importantly--I wanted to train against a target inside correct ranges.

I have a BOB martial arts dummy and this trainer lets me move in and out of range for various cuts and parries without worrying about cutting up or bashing in my very expensive workout partner.

As a bonus, the carefully designed paddle shape of the trainer's blade gives good feedback as to whether your edge is aligned or not.

The one drawback is its balance, which is far closer to the quillons than any longsword I own, but it's still an absolutely fantastic training tool.

I highly recommend it.

4 of 5 Good for snow filled locations February 24, 2020
Reviewer: Jeremy  
I live in a state where there's a lot of snow, and negative temperatures outside. It's not easy to find a place to practice outside of the club where I live. This tool allows you to train indoors without having to worry about destroying your personal belongings and ceiling.

The trainer itself is a bit hilt heavy. Looking at the design, they could have made a thicker spatulated tip to have more weight at the point of the trainer. There is little to no blade presence so it's quite different than an actual feder. My solution was to find thin but well weighted plates of steel and tap them to the tip of the trainer.

All in all this is a great tool for people like me who have to stay indoors for a large portion of the year.

5 of 5 Great for low ceilings January 7, 2020
Reviewer: Jeff Kralik  
I've been looking for something like one of these for ages!  It's about 2 feet long from pommel to "tip", and is weighted quite well to match a full-length weapon.  If you want to practice overhead cuts, but space is limited, this is exactly what you need.
