[I have used the device in question and found that:
1. The problems described in the earlier email message about its not
working have apparently been ironed out [no backlash];
2. Whether it is an accurate representation or not -- it's fun!
The Bowling ball test and other, more informal, surveys indicate that #1
is a fairly consistant amount of force among the experienced fighters.
Judging #2 is much more difficult since there is no objective way to tell
how much force is being felt through the armor and there are a host of
factors that effect the impact.
[THAT's the truth.]
