Typology of GRABONG
A typical Free-Warrior GRABONG is an even, body-long long staff made of heavy hardwood. Antique war staffs were additionally covered with braided steel wire or riveted with metal plates to better withstand sword blows.
Common and relatively widespread were simple staffs (Plong), fishing spears (Hog), and spears and glefs captured on battlefields (Twoun, Twoun Song Nahh, Ngauw and Ngamm). Also muzzle loading rifles could be used like staffs in an emergency, if there was no time to reload. Nowadays the weapons used by GRABONG-Warriors are mainly billiard cues, broomsticks and street signs.
