The New SwinG - Light V2
The new SwinG is here, and the balance is better than ever. The crossguard can be removed with the supplied Alen key in a matter of seconds, for easy transport and for exercises such as Indian clubs. The base, crossguard, pommel and weight set are made out of steel. The grip is made out of a hard synthetic rubber (PU) with an optimised texture.
Please notice that the mass doesn't say everything about a sword; please check out the table under "shop" to compare. This version is actually the original new design as I intended it, with the other ones addes as people have their own preferences.
The pommel is hammered on and extra secured with an Alen screw; please note that this pommel cannot be easily removed. It is the same pommel as with the medium version, but the base isn't: the tang has been adjusted (and the weight set as well to create a sword balance again).
