Thanks Garrick! Any Idea why the pine set @ JP's is a mix of pine and poplar? Is there a particular wood they use in the tournament sets, and what do you prefer to chuck?
Thanks for your time, it is much appreciated! :)

JP's poplar sets are used at a number of tournaments. A while back I picked up a couple of his pine sets to use as practice sets.

Koobie,
Since JP didn't answer your question about his mix of pine and poplar, this ringer will put in his 2 cents worth..  Pine sucks as a baton unless you soak it for a day or two in the mineral spirit and linseed oil combo.  It then becomes what I call self-healing when you bang it around some kubbs.  Otherwise you are dealing with splinters depending on the use/abuse.  Poplar is a little better, walnut is best for splinterless kubbing.
