Two Heavy Hitting Beat Sticks

Here are a couple of real clubs. I haven't had a new beat stick in a while so I thought I'd make myself up a few.

The first is composed of my favorite ply combo walnut-cypress-balsa-cypress-walnut. It came out to be around 85-87 grams and with a thickness of 8.7mm. The handle is a lovely 5-ply combination of wenge and purpleheart.

This next blade got my blood pumping just for it's raw power. It's got an extra thick core and came out to be exactly 10mm thick. It weighs in at a dainty 100-105 grams and is made up of zebrano-cypress-balsa-cypress-zebrano. It plays pretty well too.
