Adaptive Flail

a flail that is shaped like one branch of a fractal

This is a flail that, instead of having three different parts, the stock, chain and ball, graduates in stiffness from the stock to the bulb, by a coefficient that just does not allow the bulb to hit any other part of the weapon. So, no matter how hard you swing this weaoon around the bulb never bumps into another part of the weapon. Depending on how bouncey it was it would have gyroscopic energy storing behavoir.

Annotation:







       My pedant nature wants to says "it's a morning star or morning star mace".   

       How about one with a Kinect (or open-source alternative) that fits on the spiky bit going around and weaves about to avoid hitting the wielder, but can still strike the wieldee.

       //like 'sword' or 'knife', or even 'gun'.   

       short sword, Bowie knife, machine gun...but then we get rapier, dagger and pistol, so we get straight noun and compound noun* versions.   

       From my computer's memory, the original title was "Adaptive_20Mace" but what does it know...   

       *Why is compound noun a compound noun?

       //Why is compound noun a compound noun// Because it is two separate words, rather than a pair of words compounded together (as in "flintlock", "fuckup" or "tombollockry").
