Update: With the custom flail judge info now reflected in the main weapon table, most of the original research on this page is now redundant so I'm removing it. However, I want to give credit to Baldarov and Mavado for their great work in starting the research on custom flails. The final part of my research here will be filling out this table to make obvious the differences between material types. Tempo (talk) 10:08, 9 March 2019 (EST)

Update: Ball size appears to have no impact on the judge information for 2-chained morning stars or quoited flails so I have removed those pages from the tables. The elements that impact usefulness are handle length, material, and whether or not the balls are at opposite ends of the handle. Tempo (talk) 08:45, 17 February 2019 (EST)


Update: The information that I have been adding to individual weapons that are listed in the main flails weapons table are for entirely Klatchian Steel custom flails: KS handles, chains, balls - Tempo (talk) 09:28, 30 January 2019 (EST)


Update by Baldarov: (September, 2011)

Well... this looks to be a mess too. Crapload of options to choose from it seems. Anyways, going to start with the sansetsukon first

There are 19 different handle materials available - each supposedly doing a different judge. For each of those, there are 5 different lengths so per material there are 5 different judges so a possible max of uhm... lots. *sighs*.

Going to go with weights this time also as I have no experience with these unlike with custom axes.

I'm willing to bet that there's only about 3 different weight variations among the materials.
