Standard here:-

Length: 32 inches (Approx 80 cm).
Width: 1/2 inch (Approx 1.2 cm).
Weight: 1 1/4 ounce (Approx 35 grams).
Density is a good indicator of strength and useful indicator of stinging power. Dominum, your canes are rather thick and of low density compared with the old days. Quality rattan is now very hard to come by. The jungles of SE Asia have been depleted of wild rattan and there are bans on the export of unprocessed rounds. The cultivated product is often of poor quality.
