Reply ↓ I’ve seen some gada with very large mace heads. I have yet to hold one though. I imagine they are heavy, hence the skill required to actually use them successfully in actual combat. Otherwise it could be the equivalent to taking a 10lb long-arm sledgehammer into a fast-pace sabre duel. Reply ↓ Wow. Too good. Reply ↓ Nice Shot Reply ↓ The photo looks so alive and real ..
