no there is NOT more kinetic energy,,,u can go to u tube and lookup testing martial arts weapons and one guy does a vid on nunchucks,(Shadiversity nunchucks are stupid) which are connected by a chain or leather piece,,he tested it against a simple 3 ft long stick an was able to hit way harder with the stick than the nunchucks,which are just as dangerous to the user as the bad guy..u can power through with a solid handle generating more force,,the flexible hammer will bounce very easily off target,, nothing to hold it onto target,,now yes a flexible hammer does not transmit bad vibration back to user,, but that is all its good for,,,and u can get hammers now with anti-vibe handles...which is the way to go,controlled force is how u get the job done, and safer too,,u can bet OSHA will not allow flexible hammers in the workplace,,,leave flexible handles in the cartoons...

i dont believe the speed did change,, when i swing a solid sledge hammer the handle and head is moving at the same speed as a flex handle,, if u watch the vid, the hammer head is flexed toward the back,,and it stays there till it hits target, it doesnt swing forward,,,,no more kinetic energy...to get more energy u would have to hold the handle and stop swinging,and let the head swing forward to hit target,(more speed),this vid doesnt show that ,,it shows a full normal type swing...which means to me that the flex head is always flexed to the rear,,not swinging forward..u tube vid Bendy Hammers,(flexible sledge hammer),, looks like made for when a lot of hammering is needed,to prevent handle breakage ..
