          They come in the same sizes, except I don't think you can get the really little ones. For sure 36,38,39.

            Check the manufacturer themselves for all your carbon shinai needs!

            But remember, only bamboo has a soul...

              Ususally it's 38 for women and 39 for men... but it also comes down to your height and preference.. I know ppl who use 38s cause either they are short (men) or cause they feel more comfortable with it. There are also women size 39 shinais too..
