My point is, if you are going to hit someone with a what is effectively a big stick, and you are thinking about which big stick will deliver the most force, well ANY big stick is going to deliver a lot of force, so if its for training purpose, to master an art without actually exploding someone's skull, does it matter that much how tough the stick is?
Yes, it does matter.
Cheaply made wooden weapons are made of inferior types of wood, and they break very easily. Even a decent swing with no contact can run the risk of breaking such a weapon. Also, many a system will work bo on bo drills, and you certainly don't want a junk weapon when it comes to that, since such a weapon will quickly become splinters.
