Weight doesn't matter, but I suppose that flexibility is a factor. Strength and durability are a priority, though. If it's flexible too, that's fantastic.
The strongest wood traded commercially is Lingnum Vitae. It's pretty darn expensive though. While the traditional material for a bo is White Oak - many American makers like Kingfisher use Hickory due to it's strength and relatively low cost.
I wouldn't recommend bamboo due to it's tendency to shatter. Bamboo is a great standard. Teak is generally known as one of the hardest woods it was used on the decks of battleships but I never heard of a bo being made out of it.
If you're not married to the wood idea, there are carbon composite bo's on the market that are light and very strong.

Rex Magic Eight Ball. Psychie said:. Don't forget that you have had a long-ish mortal life long before you ever discovered the true nature of your divine parent, so if you wish to say you are an expert in a martial art even though your dad is Osiris just as an examplethat is fine.
