SHORT OVERALL REVIEW ON MEN
Aotonbo (Men) offers good protection and function. Its rather light weight and comparatively thick menbuton with Duralumin mengane allows good balance between mobility and protection. Hence it is good for both practice and competition. The overall design shows it is best for competition. It is a good Men for experienced player and also as practical as a secondary set.
However, the menbuton might be thin for kendo beginners and practitioner that practice with hard-hitting opponent.
