Helpful notes when ordering Chain linked nunchaku. Like the rope linked nunchaku, nunchaku chain links preferences are difference for everyone. The standard for our chained nunchaku is 6 chain links. When ordering any of the chained nunchaku you can select more or less links to suit your needs. We also make some of the longer nunchaku with more links which gives them a “looser” feel when spinning them.
The standard 6 chain links on the U swivel is the most common length that is used for our nunchaku. We use 325 lb welded zinc plated carbon steel chain on all sets. The more links that are added the looser the feel the nunchaku have when spun. Just like with roped nunchaku you may have to experiment with different lengths to find out which one is right for you. Please keep in mind that chain sizes vary wildly depending on the manufacturer and if you are comparing an old set of nunchaku you have, you must measure them. We have no way of knowing what size chain was sued on your old set. Different martial arts styles also play a role in what length it correct for the application you are using them for. When in doubt, ask your school instructor.
