I’ve read these forums for quite a while but this is my first post.
I was wondering how the flexibility of the Bachido premium acrylic bachi compares to the faux bekkou bachi. The clear/colored acrylic bachi on the same page as the bekkou bachi show a flexibility rating of 9 (very stiff), but the premium bachi (with the wood handle scales and replaceable blade) has two variants, the thinner of which is described as very similar to bekkou. This premium acrylic bachi page doesn’t have the numeric flexibility ratings that the generic bachi page has, so I was wondering if anybody has any experience with them and has an opinion as to where they would fall on that scale.
I’m on the fence between one of the premium acrylic bachi and the faux bekkou. I currently use a wooden bachi which is somewhat flexible, but want to try something with a bit more snap to it.
