Can anyone recap the rules passed on clubs/speed-bats again? I'm having a hard time understanding them.
A typical speed bat/club is a cylindrically shaped blue weapon, this is the weapon addressed here by me in layman's terms:
It must be more than 12" and less than 48" in overall length.
It must weigh a minimum of 12oz.
The striking surface must be at least 6" long.
The striking surface must have a minimum diameter of 2.75
2/3rds of the weapon must be safely padded
The balance point must be forward of the top end of the handle.
The tip may not pass 1/2" through a 2" hole (2.5" for green).
The pommel may not pass 1/2" through a 2" hole.
The striking surface must be covered in cloth.
When used as intended will NOT result in bruises, break bones, or knock out teeth if an unarmored person is struck with a full-strength swing.
Hope that helps.
