You want to know what was one of the coolest looking flails in the history of all flails? (Flail! You say, looking at the title of the page and the picture of a flail in the corner. Well, you're right, but we need a more specific answer). It was the flail used by the Witch King in the Lord of the Rings movies. That was without a doubt the most impressive flail we've ever seen. This performance class foam flail, however, is the next most impressive flail we've ever seen.

The Dire Flail is a monstrous piece. It features a long haft molded to look like carved wood. It's really an amazing illusion, because it looks exactly like wood with runes carved into it. At the tip of the handle is what looks like a spiked metal brace which ostensibly holds the black chain securely onto the wooden handle. The chain extends out from the handle for a few inches then ends in a terrifying morning star. A morning star, for those of you who donʼt get up before noon, is a bright glowing ball of gasses that can be seen in the sky early in the morning. Although, in this particular instance, a morning star is actually a large, spiked metal ball used for caving in the heads of people you don't like.

The base of the axe features a gold, tapered cap that is carved with runes similar to the ones on the haft. Above this are what appear to be strips of black leather wound tightly around the base of the handle to create a nice grip (it's molded to look like this, though, not really leather). Overall, this is quite the intimidating flail.

The flail is fantastic in combat. Use it to annoy shield bearers by curling over their shields and still hitting them. Or, use it as a secondary flail to tangle an opponent's flail while striking with your primary. Or, swing it wildly over head to ward off several opponents closing in. The possibilities are limitless.

The flail has a high performance carbon rod beneath the foam, giving it strength and flexibility, but not compromising the safety of the flail. Truly an awe-inspiring flail.


About our Conqueror Series Swords
ur Conqueror line of foam swords are the most realistic foam swords that we have ever seen. The molding process and high quality foam used on these flails allows for an amazing amount of detail and the designs take full advantage of this. And though great looking, their durability may be even more impressive.

Two different styles of spine rods on the Conqueror series allow you to customize your game. One style is made of fiberglass and reinforced with polyester for strength and power. The other style is made from a carbon/fiberglass combination. These latter are considered the "Performance Series" and have a little more spring and a bit more durability to them, but not so much that you'll really notice when using it. Both styles are extremely durable and are fused with the blade and pommel to prevent slippage or torquing.

Our Conqueror lines are relatively realistic in weight (about 1 pound or more) and feature a more "rubbery" feel to them. . These are monstrously durable and have a legendary lifespan. They can be twisted and torqued like a wet rag and they will still return to true form instantly. Safety is top notch on these, with tip flex-enforcers and a good thickness of foam throughout.

The Conqueror series flails made from a proprietary foam with no latex at all. The molding process allows all of the elements -- the composite rod, reinforced tip and quality polymers to merge into one solid item. The foam is insanely durable -- it resists punctures and returns to shape no matter how much you deform it. A fiber matrix of fiberglass and nylon (or Kevlar/polymer depending on the flail) increases the safety and creates a progressive absorption for less painful hits.

Weather resistance is another great strength on these. These flails have been immersed in water for two weeks and then dried in the sun without any damage whatsoever. The Conqueror series can be used at almost any temperature. -22 degrees Fahrenheit up to 212 degrees Fahrenheit (for those of you playing on one of Jupiter's moons). The foam stays soft, no matter the temperature.

With all the technological features, you sometimes forget that there are works of art. Perhaps the best looking swords on the market.
