Quietness is a huge issue because of the kidlets. So we purchased 3 different types of long canes. We have three rattan rods (no handles), each of different thicknesses, but they are beginning to show wear. We’ve had them for years, lol.
Cane #1 – The Long Rattan Cane…complete with handle
This one STINGS, way worse than the rod we have of the same thickness. It’s also way more flexible than the rods. Captain says the finish has something to do with it…poly something or other. Did I mention it STINGS! A LOT. Thank goodness he showed mercy and only used it lightly.
Cane #2 – The Blue Acrylic Cane
This one is more hurt with a little sting. I prefer it over the rattan cane. It still gives quite a ‘wallop’. And the color blue is really pretty, lol.
Cane #3 – The White Delrin
This cane is evil. It’s highly flexible. It stings, it hurts, and even though he was using it lightly, I could not stay still. I usually don’t have a problem staying in position, with this one I did. A LOT!
We also got a rubber paddle called Big Foot…smooth on one side, and bumpy on the other. My only comment: OUCH!
The last thing we tested was a delrin/rope loop thing. Hmmm…not sure what I think about that one, yet.
Wait…we also got two short OTK canes, one rattan, and one blue acrylic. Verdict is still out on those too.
Captain has assured me there is much more testing to come…
