The real WWI weapons had no bar on the inside. It was designed to be swung like a whip for increased impact velocity.
The spring was very solid, making the club only semi-flexible, so it isn't going to swing like a sextoy.
Man at arms were making a replica of the BF1 in-game item, which is completely solid, which is why this build is so strange.
