This is a durable, cross-linked 4lb foam which outlasts concrete, bricks, rebar and similar inferior materials. 4# MC is firm, firm, firm, and features a firm cell structure perfect for carving and plastidipping. Like all Warlord Sports tubes, MC Tubes are extruded as a single piece and have no glue or joining seams to interfere with your weapon carving or construction.
Tough MC Tubes are designed to be used in 'light touch' games or with additional padding. You CAN use them on their own and get them to pass in most games. They actually won't hurt anybody, but they are uncomfortable in the hands of heavy hitters.
Comes pre-formed into a 24" x 2.6" octagon with a half-inch hole, but is otherwise completely solid. To get the most out of this foam make sure and use it with a constant diameter half-inch core such as .505 kitespar. Use with a tapered core will lead to premature breakdown. For use in heavy foam combat such as Amtgard, Belegarth, and Dagorhir make sure and apply an even, overlapping layer of plastic tape to the striking edge of the foam underneath the cover.
