Hello! Don't you guys just love the nunchakus!? I've a had foam chucks for years now, and becoming pretty fast now. What I'm wondering is how much faster the wood and ratatta chucks are, compared to the foam one?

I think if youre using foam nunchucks you'll most definately find that the change will slow you down... I personally use the wooden ones with chain and for practice of new maneuvers foam with chain. Dont expect changing from foam to wood will be all that easy - takes some getting used too..and initially i think you'll find you will be much slower (depending on the weight - i used relatively heavy ones ). Eventually you will be reaching similar speeds.

However i believe that you can get light weight wooden ones or the ratatta chucks...once you are used to them they'll eventually be faster then the wooden ones.

Just a question, why the obsession with the chucks speed?

Jiggy faster is cooler.

Bruce if you go to traditional wood nunchaku with the rope the weight will be closer to that of your foam nunchaku with the chain. And the rope is more traditional.

Of course it all depends on if your work is of a more traditional sort with basic strikes or of a more modern flashy nature. Either way when you get used to them the nunchaku with the cord will make a unique sound when swung at speed.
