Metal POWER Wrist Builders are made in the USA under computer-controlled conditions using SOLID, tempered aluminum and SOLID, high-quality steel. Metal PWBs are not metal over wood, nor do they have hollow shafts. Making them from solid metals means the sticks won't bend, and the weight is balanced throughout the entire length of the stick. For added protection, the aluminum sticks are anodized and the steel ones are nickel plated.
