A suggestion: to demonstrate the flex of each of the swords you review and to give sort of a benchmark you could take a 1,25, 2,5 or 5 kg weight plate, slide it on the handle down to the cross and then measure how far it bends out from the straight line (and provide a picture; one may also want to set that excursion into relation to blade length). (Most) People can reproduce that at home with what swords they have got and more easily judge if they are interested in a particular waster model.

Sounds like a good idea! I will be adding images and/or video clips eventually.
